    Thanks :)
    ... but what's about the points we get to accomplish this task?
    Maybe I am a bit impatient, but I would really love to get started :D

    We're working on this now and it will be resolved soon. Good luck on the challenge, I'm really looking forward to see how you tackle such an interesting material idea. Dishonored might be a really solid source of references for something like this.

    Hi Jack,
    thanks for your help and tip :)

    ... but actually I have a tough time doing this texture because I thought the mask system inside mixer has pen pressure but actually that's not the case. I talked to Jin and he told me, that this feature is already available but only in-house and it's not released. It was just shown for the gdc demo ... soooo :D

    But I hope I will find a way to get something done ^^

    Okay, in the end it becomes something different, but here we are.
    It was real fun to accomplish something like that in mixer and I can't wait to follow the development of mixer. Here and there some features are lacking like a proper pen sensitivity, but overall it's even yet in the beta a pretty powerful program. Anyway - long story short. Here is my entry:

    Thanks guys, really appreciate it!
    Maybe it's not what you usally get by using mixer, but I really wanted to push the boundaries of this tool.

    Jin, we already talked about, the lack of pen pressure was at the time being a bit of a hassle, but yeah. Even with these restrictions it was possible to get the desired look.

    I really enjoyed this challenge :)

    Do not worry, we plan to add more painting features. Hats off for still being able to achieve a great submission without it.
