Default Hey GeneSplicer, I stole your car!

Not really. I've been bored tonight, and was playing Forza 3 and got the idea to start working on a vinyl skin of your car. It's in the early stages and I have yet to add any of the flag wrinkles and shadows, and it lacks a lot of the other detail work, but it's a start. When I'm done I will upload it to my storefront, for those of you who still play Forza 3.

This type of thing can be difficult depending on if the design is done from scratch or pre-made. Also, if you want this exact design the guy who made it might have it up for sale.

A bit more progress. It's not 100% accurate, as the bullet holes aren't completely in the correct places, and stripes are hard to place, since you only have so many shapes, and I'm not spending days layering hundreds of straight lines to make contour curves and ****. It's close though.

Here is one of the images I took of his car that I am working from. I only got a few angles, so I can't see all of the details so easily. Still a lot left, like the rivets and some bullet holes and burn marks.

Though it looks like in his sig, he has new paint with flames on the front as well.

Well, I'm done. Close enough for me. I'm tired of working on it, plus Forza 3 isn't detailed enough to show little things without them becoming a blur, so no point in going too overboard. Like the rivets for example, were too small to show up clearly, so they became little blurry dots, so I couldn't space them too closely without it looking odd. The wrinkles in the flag would be next to impossible, and would take more layers that I have to work with, so I'm just leaving it smooth.

That's so awesome. I can spend hours on a car and it still looks like 4 year old did it. It came out really well.

Thanks. The day I can import a file from Photoshop, I will have some pretty bad *** cars. The limited shapes pallet makes it hard to do complex shapes without a **** ton of layers. Maybe Forza 4 will have a more comprehensive vinyl design tool.
