Retro80 Racing #86 Lycoia Interceptor

Post by SnakePlissken on Tue May 01, 2012 1:33 am

But it's not sponsored by Ferris Wheels & Tires??!!




Looks like we have a new pilot for the #86 car. Any guesses?

Yep. I've made a few subtle alterations to this one and still consider it a WIP.



I'm hoping to add some sort of a plate/rivet type of plane texture for the base.

I've tried American flag bases too, but thought the plain plane look might work best.

It's the numbers that came with the font I used on the Retro80 Racing logo. I think the 85 looks best so far, but I like how the 6 in the 86 matches the curve of the roundel. I was going for a quintessential 80s look for the team and settled on this one.

I NR Stretched the base but it looked like crap so I left it "as is."

Comments/suggestions?

You can try that, it's 1280x1024

Or set your original plate layer over a gray colored base layer, and have the plate layer as overlay or something.

Not real sure how to accomplish this. I've made an overlay layer once strictly by accident when I was working on the "Mako" template that morphed into the "Predator." I can't for the life of me remember what steps I did and I've never been able to duplicate it since.

Retro80 Racing gave Pete Maverick permission to change the # style on his car, because let's face it-- it looked awful.




I also changed bases to make it more shiny metallic looking.

Comments?
