Signature skins v1

Hi again!


(Please read before jumping to links)

Its time for a new update regarding my country skins project. This blog will focus on the signature skins within the country project.
After this blog I will put together all the feedback from various topics, then I will contact valve about implementing this into the regular case drops or an entirely new country case.

Im very happy that basically everyone is enjoying my work, it surely propels me to continue even further. I have been in contact with a lot of players these weeks, and through their help I have finished 12 out of 19 signature weapon designs.

I want to thank all the players who were willing to participate. I sincerely hope I have met your expectations.

I must say, designing 100+ weapons, does become slightly hard to constantly find new ways of implementing the country flags and or emblems, some weapons do look alike, but I have done my absolute best to differentiate it as much as possible.

All weapons are subject to change. When the final texture will be made, some of them will have been slightly changed. These designs are only previews, but they are very close to the final in-game texture.

I would really appreciate if you would leave your feedback in the comment section, the more I have to present, the better. Its all about the numbers guys ;)

Please do share this blog or its contents to your national e-sport site or anywhere you feel appropriate. If you do so, please send me link in PM :)

We are currently at a total of 1,250 positive comments.

I seriously love your skins.

Just two things: in my opinion Get Right's M4 is quite poor compared to the other skins and also - too many AWP skins :(. I can understand why Guardian has AWP skins, same goes for FALLEN, markeloff, allu, fox, but ChrisJ and Friss? I don't think they are that WELL known for their AWP skills. I know they are playing as an AWPer in their team, but I don't think any of these two players will be remembered as one of the best AWPers in GO.

thought the same about Get Right's M4. The other skins look really nice.
2013-09-24 15:51:10
+1 about gtr's m4. I was expecting more blue.

The GTR m4 will be changed alot when implemented into game.

It's not on the same level as the others, I fully agree, and im not happy about it.

Exactly!
2013-09-24 18:06:39
seriously ChrisJ not known for his AWP skills?!

in my opinion hes top5 AWPer in csgo
2013-09-24 22:15:24
he pulled again a amazing stunt out of hes sleeve tonight against Fnatic 1vs3 with awp

I am not saying he is bad with AWP, he is very good and well, I don't think he is in TOP5 yet, but definitely very close.

What I tried to say is that: when Guardian retires, he will be remembered for his amazing AWP skills, right? markeloff is still playing CS:GO, but he is not buying AWP as much as he used to in CS 1.6 - but he still is considered as one of the best AWPers in GO.

It is just that the first thing that comes to my mind with these two players is AWP, and I don't think you get that sort of thing with ChrisJ - yes, he is great player, but one year with AWP does not make him some sort of AWP legend - at least not yet. I hope you know what I mean.

just jelly of dutch skill
2013-09-26 14:00:31
You've got me there! :(
2013-09-26 14:56:57
come on man...Friis is _only_ known for his awp skills :)
2013-09-27 20:29:00
Great, but neo signature should be on the middle.
2013-09-24 15:42:02
God damn those awps are sexy. You got style!
2013-09-24 15:53:31
omg friis awp want want want!
2013-09-24 15:55:31
markeloff awp when he doesnt even play awp in GO?

Doing anything else than awp for markeloff, would just be.........wrong
2013-09-24 15:58:17
doing a weapon for a player that doesnt even play with it isnt wrong?

2013-09-24 17:10:57
Its still his signature weapon. Lets face it, fanboys would rather have a markeloff awp than any other gun :P
2013-09-24 17:59:18
yes i would :)
2013-09-24 21:30:11
Markeloff M4a4 plz, and I can't believe you chose friis over MSL, coloN, xyp9x I feel like I could go on.

2013-09-24 16:01:16
Awesome! Really nice job
2013-09-24 16:04:52
well this is really good hope that valve accept it
2013-09-24 16:07:19
I like the skins! Altough I think (becouse of the many AWPS) mabey you can give ChrisJ a Scout? He's awsome with it o/
2013-09-24 16:09:07
+1 chrisJ scout would be very appropriate :)
2013-09-24 17:22:02
he's also awesome with the awp o_0
2013-09-25 00:19:07

Neo AK looks really cool :) Nice work man
2013-09-24 16:47:16
I would love to see a forest m4a1-s and a scream ak

e: cut that didn't notice its still on the to do list :D

something else: I think every country should have ak, m4 (both), awp, usp, p2000 and glock skins since those are the most used weapon and you should have you countries skin for a weapon you actually use

would be better to see scream p2000, since there is already enough ak's
2013-09-24 17:09:11
hmmm
2013-09-24 17:14:29
not satisfied, sir?
2013-09-25 07:55:44
Sick skins, except GTR's m4 need some work
2013-09-24 17:22:31
I think that Neo AK same as GR m4 is bad, these skins should have more country glag theme.

I don't want to speak for swedish friends but i would like to see polish white AK with red flames and black signature of Neo in the middle.

Having TAZ m4 would be great also. He have such a sick recoil control with it.

Signatures skins are great and its a great idea overall. Hope to see them in game one day!
Agreed on GTR M4, this needs improvement.

I don't like much the country ones...
2013-09-24 17:33:09
So far Dosia AK is the best.
2013-09-24 17:40:55
niice o.O
2013-09-24 17:42:50
GuardiaN and markeloff's AWP exactly the same?? Seems legit.

markeloff needs changing I think. Guardian's skin is slightly different and a little bit better I think than the other one (still they are very similar, which I think should be changed).

Anyway, really, really amazing work. GJ.

2014-04-05 12:27:19
Very nice, but in allu's awp I would use the coat of arms of Finland http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_arms_of_Finla..

Flag doesn't fit there so well.
2013-09-24 17:54:47
agree
2013-09-24 21:46:31
Yeah, that's much better. Also gives more of that "ISÄMM MAA PERKELE SISU SAATANA" feeling

Lovely work man!! Can't wait for these to come out!

However, NEO's Ak, while fucking spectacular, seems a little off because of the Polish flag's placement. Perhaps you could place it somewhere else on the gun? Just an opinion.

2013-09-25 16:47:49
Sick skins, Dosia's ak is just amazing

perhaps you could change Markeloff's awp or GuardiaN's , they look quite similar.
2013-09-26 00:45:40
All of them look really nice, sick bro.
2013-09-26 04:46:06

2013-09-26 14:09:41
Really a good idea. Good skins, especially witch made for countries, make it more for others one.

2013-09-26 17:37:16
I was saving my money to get hookers when I reach 18, I guess that won't be happening if these skins go official :[]

2014-04-05 11:42:04
so you took the existing skins and added a flag
2014-04-05 11:46:01
Looks so nice man, good job
2014-04-05 11:48:32
The Dutch awp looks more like a french flag imo. As you see the dutch flag is from top to bottom instead of left to right.

anyway the rest looks very very nice! :D
2014-04-05 12:10:35
Not really, the French flag is the other way around, with red on the right and blue on the left.
2014-04-05 12:29:34
i know but its the way the colors are set. from left to right instead of top to bottom. Not the colors, since i know the blue comes first in france. =]
2014-04-05 14:05:39
Well to be fair, they are not really vertical, more like in a diagonal.

He probably already tried with horizontal stripes, if he chose this way instead it must mean that it's hard to make it look good with horizontal stripes. It's quite common in sportswear and stuff like that to not stay completely true to a country's flag, in order to have a better final result. In the end the flag can be more an inspiration rather than a strict rule to follow.

For this case especially, since it's not a weapon designed for Netherlands but rather for a top player, it's no big deal in my opinion. If the Netherlands case is made, he'll probably use other ideas closer from the flag.

yea youre probably right. I think maybe a little orange would be nice aswell ;). I think its a decent awp skin but would use the colors in a different way. The ukrainian usp is really sick, thats the way colors should be used imo =D.
2014-04-05 14:39:54

But VALVE... They are implementing skins too slow. Abd where is a link to workshop etc.

My dream is to be able to buy a signature case like team logo-stickers.

Update

I will soon be creating a Signature v2 blog, with signature skins workshop releases and some other stuff regarding skins i made for gaming organizations.

The country skins is still not accepted by valve, but the signatures might hold a chance in workshop approval.

amazing skins, love em. Don't mean to sound rude, but I highly doubt valve will ever publish them cause if they would they'd have to pretty much publish them all. Which would lead to a cs:go case full of just awps and aks, which would just inflate the value of other skins (like statrak awp value would fall drastically). Valve would never gamble their lucrative business model away with an over-flood of aks and awps. IMO if you want your idea published you should have a waaaaay broader range of weapons
