New Giant Bombcast Vinyl group

#1 Posted by Renahzor (991 posts) -

Im working a bit on some new vinyls, the first is done and ready for DL and use in your favorite design:

 

 
The colors are more correct in game, I still cant figure out how to take good pics of my vinyls since I don't do many car designs.     Search in vinyls for GBDC as always or find my store under gamertag: Chocula89
 
Im hoping to do a few more of the crew over the next couple weeks, Enjoy!

Damn dude, that's some kickass layering you got going on there.
 
Whenever I try to make something, I just end up with a bunch of circles and triangles and shit.

That's awesome man. The best part is that you don't even have to know of GiantBomb and/or the Bombcast for that to be a sweetass cartoon cop graphic.

@JJWeatherman:  

I've made quite a bit on my other vinyls, and my Chie car design in particular.  Im sitting on a modest pile of credits and I dont normally spend them quickly, I could maybe make a couple hundred thousand best case, or I can give it away and more people will download it!  At this point in forza I just really enjoy making stuff, at most id put it up for 1k-3k and make a slow stream of money but its really not what motivates me to make these!  I like being top 1%(#460ish of 110k) of graphic designers on the leaderboards, and having a vinyl up that has 500+ downloads is really fun for me, so Im trying the route of free = more popular this time around, since it worked last time, LOL!

I actually get on a pretty good roll when im making a semi complex vinyl.  This took about 4-5 hours total working time, and Im getting faster with each one.  I kinda like that its a bit complex and difficult because when you make something that looks decent you feel good about it!  I do wish they had transparent masking and such for some designs but thats just what we have to work with(this would be reeeealy helpful on shading), but after a while you develop a feel for the interface and for which shapes manipulate to look like what you need. :D The hardest part for me actually is layer ordering to get everything correct, this one took some trial and error on that front, a bit rusty after about a year of inactivity!
 
This weekend im going to put in some time on the next one, either vinny or brad, not sure which yet, since brad kinda has to be done with drew.  lol!

@Renahzor: Nice work! I was just about to do one of the crew myself. The more the merrier I guess :p

I agree with you on the money part. I'd rather just create, now. Most of my credits came from a couple of vinyl requests I took on the FM forums, and they each paid a couple mil each, so I'm not really interested in making any money. I'm in the top 2% btw, but I've only made a handful of designs.

@Renahzor: Thoroughly awesome. Never got into Forza but love seeing the crazy stuff the community keeps putting out.

 Looks amazing!  Brilliant stuff. I just can't wrap my head doing anything more than really simple designs.
 
Who's next? ;-)

Random question: does GT5 have any kind of comparable feature for decorating/coloring cars?

Not to this extent as far as I know.  If I've been informed correctly, each car in GT5 can only be painted with a color chip you acquire from another car in your inventory(limiting your color options) and each chip is one time use, and some cars have a "Race Modification" which adds a race livery to the car among other things, but nothing custom.
 
@Jambones:
Vinny will likely be next, He'll lake less time to complete than the others.  I was debating a car design when Im done with the crew but these are taking more layers than I anticipated, may need to get creative if I still go that route.  lol!

As far as I'm concerned, anything below 5,000 is basically free and I'll DL it if I like it. I guess I assumed most people did the same, but maybe not. I'll gift you a car for this since it was free. :P 
 
(I'm not even sure if you can gift to random people...)
