Help needed for paint job
 
Hey all, I am in need of some help. The story is I am a painter in one of the best racing simulators today (Forza Motorsport 3), and i am having trouble coming up with a livery for a 1970 Chevelle SS. I need a shock and awe design, being that most other players are import mentals or european freaks, in order to draw some attention back to American herritage and raw beauty and power. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have always been partial to blue with white [IMG]stripes.http://images.chevyhiperformance.com/featuredvehicles/0808chp_01_z+custom_chevy_chevelle+front_side_view .jpg[/IMG]
But I have a feeling that you're wanting something more along these lines.

i want your job (or the modelers job)! Hiring?! LOL (just kidding)

It's not really a job, more of a hobby. I don't make any money doing it, I just enjoy creating race car designs and driving them on 100 of the worlds most renowned race tracks. those pictures are from Leguna Seca in Cali. Any suggestions on a main sponsore for the car? Maybe hotrodders.com being that you guys are giving me the inspiration for this thing?

that is a car in a video game, doing about a buck thirty on road atlanta's back straight. As of now it has a super charged (root style) 454 running about 10 lbs of boost putting out around 698 horse and 692lb-ft of torque. the paint is aplied using an in game livery editor, and is made up of a series of perimetive shapes such as crecents, circles, squares, and half moons. each logo on the car is made out of these as well. I have around 750 individual layers on either side of the car. more updated photos of a hotrodders logo and another color change:

Very cool stuff, I'm in awe at these things after watching my kid playing some race game, i thought I was watching a car movie but it was a playback.

Some food for thought, lose the sharp angle on the front fender, or cresent it also. A Chevelle is never a Chevelle without the stripes too and would give some strong contrast to the hood.

YENKO MOTO 01-17-2010 03:41 PM

thanks for the input. i can deffinately do someting with the front fender. and as far as stripes go, i am fairly limited. the car comes with 2 white racing stripes from the factory that i can't remove. i thought about maybe a single metalic stripe down the middle of the cowl... i will play with it a bit.
