Painting cars

Post by Bloodrusted on Fri Feb 10, 2012 6:58 pm

Strange how I never really delved into this subject in the previous Forza's. I'm actually enjoying painting my cars more than racing them. No idea why I really never got into this before.

It's awesome. If I had more time I'd do a lot more on my cars. As it is I usually have a basic group that I use for all the cars and add 'flair'. That's what our end of tourney pic is for, showing off the paint jobs as well as placement.

Yeah there have been times where I had a great paint on a car but I never used it in the tourney, for one reason or another, except for the final picture. Because of that I now paint all my test cars gray and don't do any designing until I've narrowed the car down to one of the two or three I might use. I prefer to have a car that I raced reperesent me in the tourney pic.

I like painting my cars too. I usually don't do anything too time consuming but I like to have a car that is unique to me. Just a simple paint job turns a generic car into my own creation.

I'm too much of a perfectionist to run with a sh1t paintjob. If I don't have time to finish a decent one of my own, then I'll just buy a good one. Last race I ran with my own, it wasn't the best but it was just as good as any I'd find on the market...for a freakin\' Aygo, so I ran with it. Got a few effects and stuff that I like that I'll apply to my next car, hopefully the Aygo again, so it should be a nicely refined design.

I've working on my C-class cars and it looks like Puppet is going to be fielding Team Toyota. I have a Celica and a Soarer that seem to be the best things I can put together. I know the lighting isn't the best but I wanted to throw some pics up and I didn't feel like playing around with it forever.

Yeah, I'm working on the Ferrari logos so that I can slap a couple on there. I know that Zak doesn't know it's a Ferrari unless is has the logos on it.
