Guide to creating/replicating complicated spot designs, or fun swirl patterns in Paint.net


(other software might have a tool such as this)

 

Pictures are included to help with the process :)

 

First you will need to open or install Paint.net

 

~ Next open your Blank skin or skin that you are working on:

~ Then Paste the reference image into a new layer, scale this to (mostly) line up with your plane's side and lower its transparency:

~ Now create another layer and in this start filling in/marking the positions of the spots on the skin. NOTE: Do not bother with small brushes and detail, a size 30-40 should be sufficient (for these sized dots):

~ Fill out all the dots:

~ Now go to Effects -> Distort -> Dents, USE THIS ON YOUR "SPOTS" LAYER, Mix and match these setting to create your desired look:

~ Finally, perform the same process on the rest of the skin, add extra detail, etc:
