Wanted to rock one of these taxis as soon as I saw one in game. Checked out what was on the SF and was disappointed to see nobody made much of an effort with the hummingbird. That was a lot easier than trying to match the two tone colours though, every time I took a picture the lighting was different. After several attempts it’s not perfect but it’s as close as I’m going to get - no brainier to put it on the Baja Bug for the Weekly challenge
Pleased to say this one didn’t have the layer shift that normally occurs in the process of importing but there are still layer shift issues when I apply a tune with the side skirts so there are two files…

My entry into the 2020 Retro Cartoon Contest hosted by SnakeEyes Friex. Took a while to paint this one as well as a fair bit of research. It was worth it though, I was lucky enough to be voted the winner albeit by a very narrow margin Given the high standard of the entries I was genuinely surprised and quite proud to take the top spot.
Had a burst of painting right at the start of early access and then settled into the game for a bit. Now I’ve got unfinished wips that need attention so that I can start some new stuff. Only a couple of additions this week….
Needed something for this week’s weekly challenge, saw this and thought it looked relatively straight forward. Well it would’ve been but for the warping effect of the wheel arches! Ended up being a real struggle to get the lines to flow from the side to the top of the car, did the best I could and just about feel good enough to share it… just. Also painted a graphic for the roof from a very skewed image which was flipping hard to find by the way, only to discover Forza have this model without a paintable roof! Ugh! Why do they do that?!?!?

Such a shame Valve didn’t make more of these! The PORTAL series is right up there in my all time favourite games list. I revisited PORTAL 2 and with the co-op levels it kept me royally entertained during the early part of lockdown/furlough. Originally planned to go on the Hoonigan RS200 but disappointingly the two models don’t actually match (??) and the layout didn’t work.
Came across this by chance while searching some Motörhead related stuff and wanted to paint it straight away. Thought I could get away with using an old Snaggletooth vinyl from a previous design but no….
Some artistic license applied here plus there may be a second design based on one of the Brewery’s other delivery vans… if I ever get the urge
This is actually the first thing I painted in anticipation of the new game. Found some appropriate decals to match the theme of the song and it’s on this car because it’s the closest thing to a “68 Chevy with pipes on the side…” It won’t mean much to most people but I had to have this to go along with the ‘Strong Arm’ album design I made for H4.
Anyway, I like it
My gosh you’ve been busy in the paint booth! Excellent stuff, that one based off of the helicopter is insanely awesome. Keep rockin out those sick paints! Hopefully one day we’ll have Official Livery Comps again because many of yours deserve a Feature in-game!
Thanks TC, actually there’s a separate design that’s based off the helicopter colours but I haven’t managed to snag a TTRS from my Spins yet… might go and buy one as part of the last daily challenge.
Cheers, that’s very kind I d go further and say that about most of the people posting in this section (and on other platforms). Looking at the submissions in the current weekly Comp, the standard is pretty high so I wouldn’t be all that confident of being one of the chosen 6 in any given week.
Official comps would definitely be a welcome addition as they give more chances for people to place but either way, I’m happy plodding along. Got some new wips, and will probably import a few more depending on what’s needed for the coming season.
