Strong Arm of the Law.


My entry into PTG’s Music Livery Contest based on the album ‘Strong Arm of the Law’.
I doubt many people will remember SAXON, they’re still going I think but their heyday was in the 80’s. I did do a search before I started and got no results in either FM7 or H4! 😁 I’ve got a vague recollection of seeing their logo once waaaaay back in FM2 (possibly FM3 & possibly by a certain forum Moderator??? 🤔) but I don’t recall ever seeing an actual design done - sort of like the idea of painting something that hasn’t been done before (probably has though...)
Design works with all variations of body kits and lights


Car: 2015 Audi RS 6 Avant
File: SAXON RS 6 AVANT
quick search: MD
Share Code: 109 896 992

That was my favourite design in the contest! No voting this time though.

Thanks Aqua, must admit my favourite was the Foo Fighters design, really liked the flow of it across the car.
New work in progress:


Started it 8 or 9 days ago with the idea it would be done by yesterday but lost my impetus so didn’t want to force it. More comfortable with black & white portraits but painting’s all about pushing yourself so we’ll see if I can pull it off to a reasonable standard…


Shout out to koiftt by the way 👍🏾

Happy enough with it so far, it’ll look ok with a bit of tidying...


.... the tricky part’s next, might be a while before the next update...

Thanks Kool 😁
Got some more done today…


Probably going to leave it as is for now as the layer count’s quite high compared to what I would normally expect. No doubt I’ll do some ‘snagging’ once I’ve painted his partner in rhyme...........

Getting there, just got to paint his face and the clock....


If I can get those done today and tidy up both images that just leaves the background and a bit of custom font for the album title so I’m on course to have it all done by tomorrow.

I don’t actually own a computer Bubbles so my process starts with a source image which I save to my iPad and then load into an app called CopyIt, which allows me to overlay a grid for reference.

The app itself has a broad range of settings so I can customise grid sizes, line colours and numbers as well as apply different effects to the source pic if I want to. I already have a couple of my preferred grid sizes saved as vinyl groups which are suited to logo work or more complex things like portraits.

Then it’s just a case of flicking between eyeballing the source image on the iPad and using points on the Xbox grid to get the features in the right place and correct proportions. I also use an app called Pixel Picker to get the colours as accurate as possible. That’s about it really, I’m sure other people do it differently but there’s more than one way to skin a cat and that works for me.

Finished…....



Learned a lot from this project. It’s not perfect by any means but it turned out better than I thought when I started and it’s given me more confidence to try colour portraits rather than staying in my B&W comfort zone. Working on a layout and will probably be another AH release, in the meantime I need to crack on with my entry for PTG’s new comp.

Thanks for the shout out, super pleased to see the result of my little nudge. Colour is a beautiful thing, you nailes it and i hope to see more from you! Can't wait to see the Enemy on a car.

Yeah, for a while there I lost my motivation to be a part of the Forza “Community” (such as it is now compared to earlier days) but your comments helped me to focus again so very grateful for that koiftt 🍻

It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back.

Hard to believe it’s been 32 years since Public Enemy released this album and my friends and I went to see them for the first time when they came to the UK later that year. A very personal paint for me for all sorts of reasons so I’ll throw some in the AH at random but as always, if you want one and don’t see one then message me and I’ll put one up.

Power to the people and the beats ✊🏾 👊 🤜🏼🤛🏿 ☝🏽 ✌🏼

That’s you, me and two others! 😏
It’s all good though, I was pleased with how it laid out on the car in the end. Was struggling to place the vinyl group of the whole album cover on anything that didn’t look like it was just pasted on so decided to use elements of it instead.

On another note, I have to give you props for your decision to pull your Suckerpunch design. I did a similar thing with my Lemmy tribute - which also had an Iron Cross on it - even though at over 32,000 it was the highest download design for that particular car....

I submitted a ticket after I’d unshared the file because I wasn’t sure if there could be possible repercussions if someone used it in the AH. It turns out that I would have been safe leaving the design shared as the image in itself didn’t have the specific connotations that violate the ToS.
Even so, I’m all for T10/PG’s efforts to make the game more inclusive so it won’t be making a return.

Well it makes me happy to have a LE, but I'd much rather see fantastic paints in the hands of the many. Been dabbling in the AH myself, but doesn't seem to be the place for paint lovers anymore.
Good call on the Viper, we're going to have to be more careful painting older images as we continue. Hopefully we'll see more painters and paints from other cultures around the world

I’ve had a feeling for a long while now that the way the Sharefront is set up coupled with the lottery of actually getting featured in the first place means that I’m just weeing into the wind most of the time. As far as I’m concerned, Forza painters have never been less valued in the game than they are now and the announcement of the Livery Comps’ new format only confirms that feeling for me.
Apart from the odd Community run Comps, I’ll probably just go the AH route from now on. To date I’ve sold 509 auctions with exclusive designs on ranging from 500k to 5m. To be honest I get more satisfaction from someone paying a few million CRs for one of my designs because I know they really wanted it, rather than however many thousand downloads just because it happens to be the first file people see when they click on the Designs tab.
The P.E. paint is a perfect example of that, not meant to be a limited run but deliberately set at a higher price so will probably be rare nonetheless 😉
