Forza 2 paintjobs ep. 2 - more custom vinyls!

After almost two months hiatus, I now present you with more custom paintjobs on these oh so awesome cars in this second edition of forza 2 paintjobs :D


First in line is a Nissan Skyline GT-R with a Brotherhood of Nod motif, the evil faction from the acclaimed Command & Conquer series of games. It was kind of hard to make the scorpion tail thingy perfectly fit the emblem but somehow I managed to do it. I think it took me roughly 4 hours or so to get this done. If I'm not mistaken, it was done using around 150 layers of vinyl, mostly used to make the scorpion tail. The car itself is pretty bland but hey, bad guys' car are always black and bland right.


Next up, a car that I had made a long time ago, hoping to enter the ferrari race vinyl contest but slightly missed the entry date. Oh well, doubt I could win anyways as there are tons of people out there with even more out of this world design. Anyways, the car is an F360 bearing the vodafone logo. Why I chose vodafone? Well, vodafone and Ferraris are always associated with red, so I guess the two would go well together. Didn't take me long to get this done. 2 hours tops. the problem wasn't with the logo but to make an authentic vodafone font using basic shapes was hard.


Yay to cuteness. Honestly, this wasn't my original design. I saw a similar picture of a car floating on the net. Although this is a mere imitation, I did include some personal touches to differentiate it from the original car. Wouldn't wanna get charged of plagiarism now wouldn't I. Of all the cars featured in this edition of forza 2 paintjobs, this was the easiest one to do. Most of the layers are done using round shapes and the total didn't even break 50 layers. I got this done in abt 45 mins. Thats a new personal record. There was actually another screenshot of the car that I wanted to upload but it just wouldn't upload. Oh well.. Now on the the final one for this edition...


First of all, let me just say this : pls be open minded, its just a manga character :p Anyways, the car is Mitsubishi's FTO. The theme is Lum, one of the characters in the late 80's sensational hit manga you might have never heard of, Urusei Yatsura. I personally feel that this is my best work to date since last entry's Midori Integra. Unlike the Midori, which I only painted half her face, I took a huge leap and proceed to paint the whole head, hair and half of her body. Since Lum is an alien, I decided to add some starry effects in the background and it seems to be a cool effect (although it may not be clearly visible from the screenshots above). The paint packs quite a lot of detail and the amount of layers I used to paint Lum was staggering - a grand total of over 450 layers, easily brushing off my last big project Midori. I did this works in the course of a week, spending about an hour or 2 everyday on it and the total time seems to add up to somewhere between 8 to 9 hours. I probably wont pick up a new project anytime soon. Too busy with other stuff. I do have an idea of what it gonna be next tho. I'll give you a hint - its something bleachy. All this painting has also kept me off of actually RACING in the game. Hrm...I bought a racing game but it looks like I end up with a painting tool instead.
