Joe's Garage/Paints

Discussion in 'iRacing' started by Joe Hubbard, Jun 3, 2011.

  1. Ok so I couldn't sleep last night and thought I might start a skin for the truck. I have tried a few different things and just can't get it to look the way I want. So I ask for your opinions and lets see where we can take it.

    Fire away and all are welcome!!!

  3. lol, sorry they had changed the IP of my server and didn't shut the old one down... It's fixed now :)
     
  4. maybe to put rear half of the truck into different base color, also base blue maybe little bit lighter, few sponsor on rear-sides?
    like it so far!
     
  5. yeah the rear sides is what I'm having a problem with, I can't seem to find anything that looks right there.
     
  6. Ok how about this?

  8. I have one word for that track Dario... ICE.... hahaha
     
  9. I like what you did with the side... have you tried it with gold/yellow traded out for the silver/white?
     
  10. Not yet, but that is an idea! I don't know what it is but I am still not very happy with it.
     
  11. Maybe take (most of) the sponsors you have in front of your front wheels, and place them in a single stack at the very back of each side.
     
  12. Ok here it is as you suggested... I don't think you can get rid of the sponsors, doesn't anyone know about this? I might try it with removing the yellow/blue circle from the bull on the hood and see how that looks.

  13. Ahh... didn't realize the contingency sponsors were done by iRacing. Do like it better - maybe reverse the top and bottom flames (yellow inside, gold outside) since the RB is more yellow. Could fill the blue patch at the top rear with a "Red Bull" or some other minor sponsor (RD?)
     
  14. Giving photoshop a stretch

    Ok so I took my new paint out for a little run and got a little sideways, cough, cough... For the camera of course!!!! I thought I would open the ol photoshop back up. Perhaps maybe you guys can expect a pictorial of tomorrows Racedepartment Mustang get together...

    Joe, excellent photo. I've tried screenshots and video editing, but fail miserably. That one above is crisp with detail which I cant seem to get.
     
  16. It's not really a big deal once you get use to it. It becomes a big deal when you really get to editing a shot as some do on the iRacing forums. What I did above I would not consider a big deal at all really, I think once I had the shot in photoshop I might have spent about 45 seconds on it. However I have tools and software that I use for photography that take a huge chuck of time out of the process for some of the simple stuff.
     
  17. Coming to a youtube near you!!!
