This is my first attempt at "skinning" a helmet. It took me 2 days to just put the logos on and get them all aligned. Huge props to helmet skinners. Any tips for me since I'm starting. Dos and Do Nots?

the helmet looks super clean man good job. Really the only tip i can give you is when lining things up i use the wire frame as a guide, and it usually really helps.

I was wondering. I want to have a "mirror" lens in-game (like the 100% Accuri Lenses). Does anyone have a good blender material for those lenses I could cop off you?

I made this replica skin for my buddy. Little changes from the original, but I enjoyed making it!

This isn't necessarily for you specifically but can you get copyrighted for "basing" a skin off another kit? I based my SX graphics off a FAMmx graphics kit (I gave credit by putting their logo on them) but they're just based off them, and barely recognizable. My brother told me you can't copyright shapes and lines, but just wondering if that is a "no-no".

There is a fine line on the edge of copying/basing a design off another kit. From what I understand, as I do this for a living.If the kit is recognizable as the kit you based it off, then technically its copying and if they wanted they could sue you. So you can base a design off another it just has to be different enough from the original source. So take that kit and put your own "style" into the design. For sim shit, none of it seems to really matter lol besides maybe getting bashed on the forums.

In a professional environment I can imagine getting sued is very likely, but I find it hard to be sued on MX Simulator when you aren't making a profit off their design. However thank you for the response.

lol Adidas would not like you very much along with Honda probably having a seizure looking at that improper use of their logo.

I’d put the Lucas Oil where the Honda is, and just put the Honda wings instead of the full logo on the front of the shrouds
