    I am very interested into this contest, however.. this image I seem feels its way too small if one were to be approved to be slapped on a real car. I’m I missing somewhere to download the real big image? Or is 962×622 the biggest resolution to work with?

    Much appreciated.

      actually it’s 1224 x 792

  5. 30/03/2011 at 5:59 pm

    You’re gonna have to give us some more ammo. Like vector art for the car and some hookups on logos. Great idea though, can’t wait to submit!

  8. 31/03/2011 at 2:15 am

    same question as max.. will non-us residents be eligible for this contest? also what are the sponsors (if any)? higher resolution available?
    thanks :)

      Hi again, sorry to bother. But as for my last question, is there any higher resolution to work worth? I feel the livery design for that small of a image won’t be able to be slapped on a car like that. Just seeing if we have any bigger images to work with, if not.. That’s fine with me. Makes work easier! (:

      Thank you.

    So do we get more kudos if we free hand design this and not use Photoshop? Photoshop is cool and all, but I am digin’ old school free hand drawing. Feel me?

      I agree, already sketching up multiples as we speak. feel better that way.

    Sooo do we need to use all three vectors? or can we just use one?

  14. 31/03/2011 at 6:59 pm

    Hellz yeah i’m game

    31/03/2011 at 7:44 pm

    Yo mine is somewhat inspired by an actual race car *outside of drifting*, will that be ok? *hint f1*

  16. 31/03/2011 at 9:15 pm

    you should be able to recreate the car with ease if you are able to create the vector art needed to produce the graphics for the wrap.

    vector logos needed!?

    • 04/04/2011 at 9:11 am

      sorry, can’t release our logos in vector. we’ll put together a few pngs of our logos.

    ok i really want to do this but there are a few things im not really clear on forgive me if I’m just restating something yo already said but one how do i do the drawing through photoshop or some other program or can it be hand drawn?

  24. king

    I did a design, but what are your sponsors?

    • 05/04/2011 at 8:21 am

      you can put falken and STACK (vertical 3 logo).

      • Animator480
        06/04/2011 at 10:13 am

        waaaaaay ahead of ya.

    05/04/2011 at 11:06 pm

    This is a sick idea. On a more serious note a vector, or png, of the logos would definitely allow for better designs rather than dealing with stretched out crappy pixel versions of the logos that can be found on the web. Thanks.

    • Animator480
      06/04/2011 at 10:15 am

      or you can just draw it yourself, jusayin

      • Chia
        06/04/2011 at 5:10 pm

        or do both

  27. 06/04/2011 at 12:52 am

    Who’s the driver of this thing ? And is he from the USA ?

  28. 07/04/2011 at 8:45 am

    Hey Mark, could we add logos from Speedhunters, 7tune, and StanceWorks? That would be fantastic next to Falken logos…

    can i use forza3 to draw it it up?

    • D
      08/04/2011 at 11:28 am

      Yeah that would look really good. i would also like to know if we could use forza!!

    if you upload it in illustrator and re-pen the lines you will get clear and fresh looking artwork easy to do and makes the work look professional i already started and came up with 5 already it may be tedious but in the end it all comes together i love things like this wish i could come out to the CA and check out the shop and studio would be my goal but its not my decision but any whos lets do the math download+illustrator x time=good works it should come natural guys.

      It’s easier if you do the live trace option on illustrator

      • Chester.smith
        12/04/2011 at 1:59 pm

        not likely it comes out very bad in most cases and plus if you do your own vector of it it will be easier to create patterns and change colors easier

    only took a few minutes retracing with a vector software (Corel). Finished all my designs with Photoshop and submitted 2 while tweaking 4 more.
