Recreating the 2015 Ken Block Livery: Final Result

And we’re done! Finally, this long project has come to an end. This is what the final result looks like:

I am very happy with it. There are always things that can be improved, particularly in a complex car like this. The brake discs – and the calibers – are the products of pure laziness and ineptitude, but altogether, the wheels turned out quite well. The 52 logo on the rear wheel is slightly misaligned, now that I think of it, but we’ll leave it at that. The logos could be much better, too; it’s always tricky to get them just right with GIMP; Inkscape and vector logos would have been the way to go but once again: laziness.

The highlights, on the other hand, are something I’m very happy with. It’s always to challenge create nice highlights but I reckon I pulled them off pretty nicely here. I really love how the lights turned out, too. If I had to grade this project, I’d give it an eight on a scale of one to ten.

Wait! I did say something about a background, didn’t I? Well, here goes:

There’s no prize in guessing that the surface of the “moon” is my own doing; I’m not experienced in making backgrounds! The stars are mine, also, but those are obviously very easy to create. The Earth photo I took from the web and edited it heavily to make it blend into the background.

Well, it’s been fun! Laters!
