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.
Even though I thought I’d posted all my custom Forza Motorsport 2 liveries, when I returned to it briefly I discovered that there were a handful left I hadn’t posted. Unfortunately, because it was a good while ago now, I don’t remember anything about making them including sources or techniques. So, I’ll just post the pictures.
Actually, now that I look at it I seem to remember that the Porsche logo isn’t available in white so it had to be traced using primitives over the existing Porsche logo. I did this at a large size for accuracy and then could use the group scaling feature to make it the size required. Forza’s wonderful ability to colour a whole group of vinyl’s was then available to make the Porsche logo any colour I required. I also used the same technique for the Martini text which is used in both white and black. I really miss those features (accurate group scaling and group re-colouring) in Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli.
After the nightmare of trying to manhandle the TVR Tuscan S around, well, anything I wasn’t looking forward to driving around in my favourite car from Gran Turismo 2: TVR’s mental concept car, the Speed 12. Imagine my delight, then, as I found the car to be much more predictable than the Tuscan S and super-fast.
To reward it, I plastered my Top Gear logo all over it which I had designed but never really used properly. Since the car had a lovely metallic maroon colour that I wanted to keep, I had to pick a best match for the inside of the gear in the logo but it looks fine, especially in motion. To round things off I added a custom BBC logo (not quite right, I know), a Union flag and my custom manufacturer logos for Peniston Oils and Larsens Biscuits.
