    The only thing that looks good on this knife id the grip. But that's just a camouflage overlay and it doesn't fit the game. I won't rate because I don't know what to rate it.

    Keep working at this.

    First of all, the blade looks okay, but it appears that there was just heavy grime and rust placement over the default blade, which is still partially exposed.

    The blue symbol on the blade looks really out of place. It doesnt fit or make sense, and is way to saturated and clean to match the rest of the blade.

    The handle is next. The camouflage looks simply placed over that as well. I can see the bumpmap underneath the blade to help with the texture, but for those of us who play with static lighting, the grip will just look plain camo.

    Instead, make it overlayed or partially exposed. keep the texture of the grip metal, with a very slight amount of low saturated camouflage that has been worn away.

    For the over all texture... Just keep practicing. Look at some tutorials, and download some really good knife textures by people who are good at them. Look at their work, and then open up random knife files and just mess around, trying to make it look good.

    With that much practice, another version of this knife could look great.

    Edit: One last thing - your title contains shouting, only capitalize the first letter.

Development Info

Notes
This particular skin was done because I like Camo weapons and outfits.
I used DDS Converter for this model and paintshop pro. The model is the default stalker vanilla.
I like to try & do something different rather that seeing skins slightly changed, I like to add things to them like jewels, sometimes bright colours things that are appealing to the eye.
I'm not trying to create a da Vinci, or thrying to be pretentious about it all, it's just good fun so enjoy!
