This week saw fourteen approvals of a wide variety of skins, but of particular note is the Sunrise Trilogy, three related skins by Dr.KeKe1337. They'll only be in the game store for a week, so get 'em while they're hot!
The first skin in the Sunrise Trilogy by Dr.KeKe1337, is fierce, colorful and faded all at the same time. It's got a lazy, half-lidded eye disconnected Picasso style from a mouth full of sharp teeth painted on the blade. The artwork covers the entire blade, including the back and the top of the tool, where the haft joins the blade.
Colorful and Rusty at the same time, this skin will really add some sunshine and honey to that magic moment when you chop your sleeping enemies into bits inside their own homes.
Second skin of the Sunrise Trilogy, the Sunrise Helmet is a coffee can helmet with a vibrant tribal African or South American theme (we can't quite place it). Like the other two skins in the Trilogy, the mask presents a frightening visage, with angry eyes on the forehead strap and a toothy mouth at the chin.
It couldn't look better. We hope Dr.KeKe1337 will follow this success with a few more Sunrise skins, and may the approvals rain down!
After gathering dust on the back burner for three weeks, Facepunch decided to pull the trigger and release the three Sunrise skins ("The Trilogy") all at once this week. This armored mask is the happiest of the three, which will be of small consolation if it's the last thing you see standing over you, sticking you with a spear as your screen goes black.
It's beautiful work, vivid, savage, and Rusty.
Though the Sunrise gods may be fierce and angry, the Rust gods have smiled on Dr.KeKe1337, who basks in the glory of a three skin set approval. Get 'em in the store while they're cheap this week; the price is sure to go up in the market later on.
We featured this door by skzInferno in our top ten list this week, and we're pleased to see it win approval. Although battered and dirty, it is so shiny it's guaranteed to attract raider attention. Put a false loot room behind it and carelessly leave the view port open so they can see the loot chests. After wasting precious explosives on a couple of these, they won't know what to think.
Good things come in small packages, and giving is far better than receiving, especially when it's an unreliable bundle of homemade gunpowder and fuses. Attach it to your neighbor's door and back quickly away while joy and anticipation thunder through your veins!
This skin wraps a satchel charge in a handsome red leather case, and binds it all together with more leather. The textures are astonishingly accurate for worked and aged leather, and the entire package will look absolutely lovely for the few seconds it lasts in the game. By Milho Frito.
A simple pair of black work boots, courtesy of La Crampe, the artist responsible for the Army Armored line of skins. They're carefully detailed and dirtied, right to the bottom of the sole. The leather and rubber textures are of impeccable quality, and a slight tear in the toe reveals the steel beneath.
An urban and upscale steamer trunk in the strong lines and metallic colors of the Roaring 20's. This one's suffered its share of nicks and scratches down through the years, but remains quite well preserved.
StabbyMcStabface won approval on his Nordic Beast Roadsign set, a road sign pants set featuring painted over fenders, license plates, and street signs bound together and decorated with suitably barbaric sigils and runes.
The kilt portion is scratched and scruffy, but looks like it should gird your loins well enough once the lead begins to fly. No padding, though, so try not to get hit where it counts.
The second half of the Nordic Beast Set by StabbyMcStabface, this one features a little padding on the inside to help absorb blows, and some magical runes on the outside to help ward them off. We think Stabby did a good job with the leather straps and wires that hold the armor together, and the metal texture on the armor makes it look strong and sturdy.
It ain't a toy, and it's bite is every bit as bad as it's bark.Don't mess with the Bitin' Dog.
A rocket launcher held together by duct tape and scraps of wood that only the crazy brave dare fire. There's a little lightning symbol near the sights to reinforce the launcher's name and color scheme.
It's a simple but strong design that stays Rusty, a well deserved approval for Fred the Dog.
Congratulations to Krovv for his leather boonie hat, which adds a little more variety to a neglected skin category. There's not much to say about it, except that it has a pleasing brown leather texture with a black hat band, and may help you seem Friendly and harmless just long enough to whip out your SAP and fill 'em full of lead.
A makeshift weapon born of desperation and poverty, this is a sword made of wood with thin, sharp sheet metal fastened round to make an edge. The grip is metal wrapped with cloth, but thin and clearly painful to swing.
This skin really captures the spirit of Rust. It's a makeshift collection of scrap found in the ruins of civilization, hammered together to help make it through another day. Excellent work! By TheMarex86
A simple, yet brutally effective war machine. This one's well oiled and maintained, guaranteed to shoot straight and true.
