Move over Spark Boy??!!

Post by SnakePlissken on Sat Oct 15, 2011 7:13 pm

Here comes "Lightning Plugz" to put a glow onto the 2012 season.





Logo is from Deviant Art and altered by me.

I can't tell you how "cramped" these ASA 90s templates are compared to the original cup's. I can't seem to put any text on the quarters unless it looks microscopic or squished beyond recognition.

Tried some bases but thought it made the car look too "busy."

As always, comments and and/or suggestions welcome.

It looks nice. Not too over-the-top or anything like that.

Made some modifications such as sliding the logos and numbers up above the beveled body lines to see what it'd look like and changed the black to a dark green for the base color among other things.

Hey Sparky, I didn't realize that being radioactive was a good thing XD

They look awesome! This makes me want to use this car over my actual Brute if I get in for next year.

Some parts of the country call them "fireflies" but in my area we called them "lightning bugs." The logo started out yellow but I tried to make it have that green glow that lightning bugs give off.

For the base, I wanted it to look like a field/meadow at dusk with lots of lightning bugs flying around-- bit it proved too problematic.

The numbers/logos are easier to read on version #2, but I think that they looked better following the contours of the beveled bolts in version #1 myself.

Anybody else?

I only lived in North Carolina for 2 years but one thing I remember about it most was the fireflies. There was tons of them and it was like a light show every night outside. It was pretty neat. You see some fireflies in Michigan but nothing even remotely close to that. Boone, North Carolina was named the firefly capital of the U.S. for a good reason lol.

Anyway, really nice cars Snake I like them a lot.

We call them lightning bugs here, too.
Awesome car. I agree with the final statement you said, though.
