This is awesome, I must say. [editline]1st October 2012[/editline] Also, if you post your paint idea, please leave the RGB aswell please.

[QUOTE=psyke;37871419]Got bored and began to sample colours from the psd files of a few items i worked on. [img]http://puu.sh/1aqZT[/img][/QUOTE] Is the Bomber's Tinge also sampled from one of your items or is it original?

I like OP the way it is. 90's style internet.
[QUOTE=Damian0358;37872429]Is the Bomber's Tinge also sampled from one of your items or is it original?[/QUOTE] It's the original rgb values of the brown bomber. dunno if they changed that :T
I can't seem to see the vtf of the Gibus, as the black becomes blue on Paint.Net. [editline]1st October 2012[/editline] Well, looking as we have plenty of colors with no photos so we see how they look like when painted on a hat, we should probably start doing that. Similar to how Mnemo used the Ol' Geezer in his photos, we should use the Wiki Hat in our paint preview photos. Only thing is I have no clue how to do that, so someone might need to help me out. [editline]1st October 2012[/editline] Also, updated the OP.
A Shadowy Figure's Ghastly Shade [img]http://i96.photobucket.com/albums/l189/Simski_2006/AShadowyFiguresGhastlyShade.png[/img] Sampled from the Ghastly Gibus [sp]I copied the TF2 wiki picture of the Heavy wearing a gibus, put it in MS paint, marked a square inside the Gibus, pressed ctrl and minus until it had been summed up into a single pixel, and then I pressed ctrl and plus until the pixel was large enough to show the color that I wanted. SCIENCE![/sp]
[QUOTE=Spot of Tea;37872443]Holy fuck. Wiki Cap looks glorious in that colour[/QUOTE] Looks like a conductor cap.
Pink as Heck [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/w9Ipx.png[/IMG] [I]Not[/I] sampled from the nightmares of TF2's art director! also a comparison [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/aiR5l.png[/IMG] Now with 50% less eye-searing!
The guy who invented the lime and pink paint should be fired

[QUOTE=Zadrave;37873190]Looks like After Eight to me.[/QUOTE] After Eight has a green tint to it for god knows what reason. Trust me, it's notably different.
Another idea (sorry for not having the exact colors again): "The paint of steel" Sampled from the Fists of Steel.
If you don't mind Damian, I made a better OP picture: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/3iXoM.png[/IMG] Edit: Improved further
[QUOTE=Juzzar;37873833]If you don't mind Damian, I made a better OP picture: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/3iXoM.png[/IMG] Edit: Improved further[/QUOTE] Added to the OP. Really looks good! Now, who can we find to do some paint tests on the Wiki Cap? And by that, I mean, the paints in this thread.
Do them yourself? [url]http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Template:Painted_variants/Tutorial[/url]

[QUOTE=NeoDement;37874139]Do them yourself? [url]http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Template:Painted_variants/Tutorial[/url][/QUOTE] VTFEdit doesn't work on my computer, that is why I'm asking others to do it. Plus, the tutorial is confusing for someone like me.
[QUOTE=Damian0358;37874353]VTFEdit doesn't work on my computer, that is why I'm asking others to do it. Plus, the tutorial is confusing for someone like me.[/QUOTE] Open model viewer, load player, load hat. Edit the .vmt (It's a text file not a texture) of the Wiki Cap with the RGB color you want, press F5, take screenshot, edit, upload and post it here. Isn't that hard. Edit: What am I saying you don't need to edit textures. Just edit a text file with 3 numbers.
Last one, I promise :v: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/SQzgS.png[/IMG] (Sampled from the Human Cannonball)
Shit, this is a pretty cool thread idea. I gotta open up Modelviewer and try some of these on hats I like sometime. Also, we need a Fancy-Fedora team color~
Finally! Updated the OP to include paint previews on the Wiki Cap! Also, A Shadowy Figure's Ghastly Shade seems a bit brown-ish for some reason.
[QUOTE=NateDude;37878865]Also, we need a Fancy-Fedora team color~[/QUOTE] An air of debonair is supposed to be this, I think
So, how well did I do these pictures? Any good?
Perhaps I should try and grab a darker sample from the gibus, because it looks way too much like radigan conagher brown.
I'm not really liking that Neon Nightmare paint.
A burning desire for black looks a lot better than I expected actually, neat.
[QUOTE=Erfly;37884321]I'm not really liking that Neon Nightmare paint.[/QUOTE] Perfect. It's a nightmare, isn't it?
Oh and... for irony's sake, could we try and grab a sample of black from the wiki cap :v:? [editline]2nd October 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Damian0358;37884350]Perfect. It's a nightmare, isn't it?[/QUOTE] Urgh, they're like Pink and Lime 2.0
