Just in time for the anticipated public reveal of Forza Motorsport 3 at E3 2009, I’ve remembered a couple of Forza 2 liveries that I never posted before. Sadly, I can’t remember anything about their creation. This one is clearly inspired by the McLaren Formula One team and their Vodafone sponsorship.
Just in time for the anticipated public reveal of Forza Motorsport 3 at E3 2009, I’ve remembered a couple of Forza 2 liveries that I never posted before. Sadly, I can’t remember anything about their creation but I can see that this one was pretty straightforward combining the Italian national colours with the Ferrari logo.
I’m not too convinced that I pulled this idea off. It’s supposed to be a race track with kerbing and grass. The racing numbers are styled as a grid marker (I was rather pleased with that idea).
While I felt the design looked a bit naff in the screenshots above, in replays it worked surprisingly well and that, coupled with the fact that the car was great fun to drive, made me feel a lot better about how the paint job turned out.
The idea behind this paint job, as indicated by the title Ying Yang, was a two-tone design with a different colour on each side of the car and the demarcation pattern to be styled after the classic ying-yang icon. Unfortunately, you can’t tell from the finished job. This is a case of one of those ideas which simply didn’t work when applied. It is posted as a complete failure.
Base Paint Variations
I’m really bad at abstract pattern creation but this is my attempt at one and, because it is made from the neutral colours of black and white, the base paint can be changed to almost any other colour and it still looks fine. While I was quite pleased with the design in these screenshots, I didn’t feel it looked as good during the race.
