Hey Facepunch. I wanna take you through the progress of a big project that I've been working on for some months now. I have this friend, who owns a big car import, and he told me that he was gonna start a drift team next year, and he wanted me to do the cars graphics. This is how his S15 looked before I started: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_3660.jpg[/IMG] So, this is the progress. From start to end. First, I went to take some pictures of the car to make the graphics on, so that I know they will be the right size and proportions. [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8073.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8095.jpg[/IMG] After taking those pics, I started drawing it in Flash, so that the colors would be better, more clean reflections etc. Outlined first: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/SilviaS15Side.png[/IMG] Then I colored it: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/SilviaS15Sidewcolor.png[/IMG] Now I had a template to use, so I spent hours on talking with my friend, and the guy who's going to drift the car next year, and we finally came up with a design that we all liked. So first I made a viewer friendly version, so they could see what it was going to look like when done: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/S15camobund.jpg[/IMG] Then I had to do a printer friendly version, that means no reflections or anything like that in the vinyl: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/S15_grafik_til_print300dpileft.jpg[/IMG] After that, we had to decide how the rear of the car had to look, so I drew a very quick, and way less detailed pic of the rear [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/SilviaS15Rearcolor.png[/IMG] And made a printer friendly design to begin with: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/S15_grafik_til_print300dpirear.jpg[/IMG] And then I waited. And just here, 1½ hours ago, I saw my design in real life for the first time! It was so amazing to see! Here are the pics of the finished result: [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8991.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8992.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8993.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8994.jpg[/IMG] [b]That's my name :q:[/b] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8996.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8998.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/IMG_8999.jpg[/IMG] If everything goes right, this design will be on 6 cars by the beginning of 2010. Enjoy, and ask away if you have any questions!
Wow that actually looks great
Thanks! Here's a short video of the car driving on the road: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN9lyqaZvmk[/media]
Really nice man, congratulations! [editline]07:08AM[/editline] I see a few bubbles in it which kinda sucks, but hey what can you do.
Yeah I know. I didn't do any of the filming though. But they filmer-guys told me that they had a real hard time because the car is so boxy and edgy.
That looks fucking fantastic. On one of the pictures I saw an air bubble though. Might want to smooth that out asap.
Design fits the car really well, I love it!
Wow, that is really awesome man. Good job. I wish I could do that. I might try it in the future. How exactly do you do it?
[media]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/SilviaS15Sidewcolor.png[/media] I still can't believe you made that in flash. It boggles my mind. And yea, how much would it typically cost for a custom "job" like this one done on a car?
Holy crap, you're an awesome person
That's great, a bit of a shame about the text, it turns it from a great design to looking like advertising. Great job though.
I just checked out that website, and damn I wish I had 80,000 now :( now for some on-topic, I don't like the way the rocks or whatever it is just has a gap on the rear, otherwise looks smexy.
Wish I could afford something like that, insurance would be up the fucking ass though for it.
Wow.... I mean holy shit, that's great
When I first saw the design I didn't really like it. Then when I saw it on the car I completely changed my mind. Great work on both the design and that awesome flash colouring.
It's been a while since I saw a utsunomiya plate on a car
sheeeeeet that is smokin' dude!
[QUOTE=Occlusion;18733072]That's great, a bit of a shame about the text, it turns it from a great design to looking like advertising. Great job though.[/QUOTE] Yeah I know, but that's the point. Liveries are made to advertise for something!

I'm quite disappointed with that too, but the car was a pain in the ass to film, and apparently that was the best solution. [QUOTE=luishi5000;18730024]Wow, that is really awesome man. Good job.

How exactly do you do it?[/QUOTE] I pretty much explained the process :confused: [QUOTE=HeroicPillow;18730219][media]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c289/Ferosso/Jock%20S15/SilviaS15Sidewcolor.png[/media] I still can't believe you made that in flash.

I'm just considering this a great way to advertise myself. But the filming of the car was about $1300

Not the actual design process. :D I assume it's the last part, the filming. $1,300? Hmm..
Holy shit.

Massive huge bump, but I'd like to show you guys what the car looks like now, along with other cars driving with my artwork on.
