Hi, I'm Stuzib85.

New Forza, New thread.
Here we go.....


Turns out, I'm properly obsessed with LaFerrari. Having just painted it with a Scuderia Ferrari inspired livery, I've been racing and cruising around in mine since the second I bought it!
Most of the logos I created for the livery are already available to download, as is the livery itself. More SF liveries will be coming soon.....

Here's some photos of it.

I have started work painting a tribute paint for Marussia F1 driver, Jules Bianchi. Should have that ready in a few days, so people can show their support.
I've also created a "#ForzaJules" vinyl for people to display, if they choose to. Its available to download now.

Thanks for reading this, I'll be back with another update soon

Got some Horizon news for you all today...

I won the Race livery contest for week 1 for my Scuderia Ferrari LaFerrari (Above), which I was very pleased about :)

On a more sombre note, I was watching the GP in Suzuka last weekend, and, like many, was truly shocked by what happened. My thoughts are with Jules and his Family, and the Team too, who have to continue on to race this weekend whilst their thoughts remain in Suzuka. I'm sure we all hope that he pulls through, both him and Michael.

A friend suggested that I make a Bianchi tribute livery. After much debate about whether I should, I decided to do it.
Here's the shots:

Its available to download now, to show your support.
If you would like me to put the livery on another car for you, just ask, and I'll do it as soon as I get the chance.

Thank you for reading.


P.S Please check out my friend, and Legendary painter, Gr333nz, who was featured in this weeks In Focus article. His work is INSANE! Here's the link

A bit more painting today, followed by some photo shoots.

The paint is another Scuderia Ferrari livery, this time for the 458. Some of you may recognise it!
This is still my most used livery ever, so it was a must have for Horizon 2.

After the 458 pictures, I discovered that I had the photo settings, accidentally, almost perfect.

So I went and got my LaFerrari.....

These shots look quite real, I think. really happy with them. Hopefully, more of this quality to come :)

Finally, with the inclusion of the Vauxhall Corsa in Horizon 2, I was able to recreate my own car.
Here's a photo of it. Its got the logos for ABGRAPHICS' SprayGun Collective (SGC_), as that is the Club that I joined.

That's the end of this update, so thanks for reading this, and Ill be back with more news, paints and photos soon.

Hope everyone is enjoying cruising around in FH2!

I've got a little update for you guys:

This week, a tweet went out asking for a "Painter in Crime" for an upcoming series from CornWolf.
I responded, as I wasn't working on any paints at the time. Plus would be cool to be involved.
Without giving anyway any details, I was given free reign to paint a Renault Alpine A110.
Not a car I'd painted before. Hadn't even driven it yet, since I found in the Barn.

Some sketches and Google searches later, I found a historic livery that I really liked. Couple of hours later, and it was finished. Simple, but it suits the car really well.
Its popularity is increasing by the day, as the downloads creep up, faster, at first, then my recently featured Jules Bianchi Tribute paint.
(Oh, by the way, my Jules Bianchi Tribute paint was featured this week).

Here's some shots of the Renault.

Let me know what you guys think of it.

Something else that has happened this week, was that I posted this photo of my Jaguar F-Type, on Twitter:

Nothing too special, but I really liked it.
When I got up the next morning, It had been retweeted by Ian Callum, Chief of Design at Jaguar, the man who designed the car!
Having wanted to be a Car Designer since I was young, and as an admirer of Mr Callum's work (DB7, Vanquish, DB9, Jag XK, etc), I was pretty excited by it. In fact, it made my day!

Well, that's the end of this update.
Thanks for reading this. If you have anything to say about this, or any other updates, please feel free to leave comments :)

Before I go, I'd like to share this link to CornWolf's Youtube Channel. He makes great gaming related videos, not just about Forza. He is also a pro Tuner too.

And, I would also like to share a link for my Forza 5 Thread, so you can check out my previous paints and any future ones too.

Until next time,

Hi guys,

Got another little update for you:

I have been working on a new request this week.
The brief was for a "BadAss" Ford Raptor. I should have it finished on Saturday, so hopefully, it fits the brief. It's been a challenge so far.

Pretty much as soon as I have finished the Raptor, I will be starting on my paint for the Forza Halloween Bash 2014. Not sure what car I'm going to paint yet, but I do know what I'm going to paint on it. Should look pretty good.

I found out today that I won my 3rd featured design, in 3 weeks of Horizon 2 contests. The paint was the Renault Alpine that I painted for Corn Wolf.
With the paint I'm currently working on, plus the Halloween paint next week, that makes 5 paints. My aim is to get 5 paints featured in the first 5 weeks of Horizon 2, then I'll take some time off from painting. Probably get back to levelling up on Destiny :)

Last week, HeliosT10 put out a tweet asking people to enter their work for the In Focus article.
I entered my Jules Bianchi Tribute Huracan and my Renault. Both of these were chosen to be featured. I must say, its pretty sweet to see my work in the Forza Hub app on the Xbox One.
This week's In Focus also contains the Sunset Overdrive Huracan by my friend, EL Mutem. Its a really fantastic piece work.
Here's the link to the article: http://www.forzamotorspo...t/en-us/news/if_10_22_14

Off the back of that, a YouTuber called Stella Stig, created an awesome video featuring my Huracan.
Its part of his Showcase series, and his videos really are great. It was an honour to be chosen to be featured.
Check out the video here: http://youtu.be/qKasj5Vo...UUMLhl2sLDi2INvRWy60xbPw
And Stella Stig's YouTube account here: https://www.youtube.com/...UCMLhl2sLDi2INvRWy60xbPw

Finally, I've got some photos to share with you. No cool stories or anything, just some pretty shots.

Well, we've reached the end of this update.

Thanks for reading, and I'll be back to post here again soon.

Some photos for you today:

Here's my first FH2 request for BussDH: Introducing the "Raptor-Buss"

That paint was tricky, due to the colour restrictions, but I really like the way the Marines on the side look. They are in water, and I think it looks pretty good.
Here's a "Showcase" video, by Stella Stig, with some really cool graphics, showing off the Raptor: https://www.youtube.com/...hpm4xVf16UaYEbfNCgHxudTK

After that, I fully tuned the little '45 Jeep Willys. Lots of power and almost no weight means its the most fun car to drive on the game.
after some brief time in it, I've already got my highest XP score over 410,000 points.
Stuck some of the vinyls from Buss' livery on it.
The tune and paint are available to download from me now, and I highly recommend doing it. It should be on the Bucket List: Max out the Jeep and earn over 400,000 points in it. Its awesome.

Next, is a random shot of my Ferrari 330 P4. Quality isn't as great as some of my other shots as I accidentally lost my camera settings.

And a shot of the Veneno that Turn 10 sent out this week. This one is my fav of the week.

Finally, I've started My Forza Halloween Bash 2014 paint. Some of the guys have already finished theirs.
Here's a really cool one from ABGraphics.

Here's the link for Stella Stig's "Showcase" of this car too: https://www.youtube.com/...hpm4xVf16UaYEbfNCgHxudTK



Oh, and I want to get in a special mention to my buddy, El Mutem. If you haven't done so already. you should check out his Sunset Overdrive Huracan.
Here's a link to the video of it. Again, by Stella Stig.

Its been a while since I've posted an update, so this one has quite a bit of content!

First up, as mentioned in my last post, is my entry to the 2014 Halloween Bash.

This paint took a few days to do, but went together with no real issues. Really happy with the way it came out.
I picked the Urus because I had a good feeling no-one else would.
It was featured in the Halloween In Focus and WIR.
Here's the link of the WIR article http://www.forzamotorspo.../en-us/news/wir_10_31_14

I painted another for @Forzatographer, on an F12.

Next up, as the Jaguar F-Type R was added to the game, came a couple of Project 7 liveries. Project 7 is Jaguar's limited Edition version of the F-Type.
Simple, just some stripes and a number, but effective.

Here's the alternate colour:

(Random Car **** )

I wanted to do a livery for the Alfa 4C, but was stuck on ideas. Some helpful suggestions came from twitter, but I just couldn't make it work (you cant win them all!)
Here's what it came out like. Looks good, but missing some parts.

After this, I kinda fell out with Horizon 2.
I changed the colour of my LaFerrari for my daughter to have a drive about in, and accidentally unshared a paint with over 10,000 uses! I was gutted. Couldn't bring myself to get back into painting....

A couple of weeks later, I did a quick paint for BussDH, but still hadn't started again properly.
This is the Supra that I did for him.

I only started painting again this week, but have put out a few since then.

Whilst I started a new project on Monday, the first paint I released wasn't till Wednesday morning.
Wednesday was the day that the Ferrari FXX K was unveiled. It looks awesome.
The livery look fairly simple, so I took a break from my project and put out a replica.

Once I had finished the FXX K, I continued with my other paint.

This one, is my best on Horizon 2, so far. It's something that I'm really happy with.
If you follow me on Twitch or on Twitter, you may have already seen it.

Introducing my Star Wars: The Force Awakens Audi TT RS:

When I was painting this, I did most of it on Twitch. People kept asking how I make the liveries and if I could show them.
I began to think about possibly streaming a tutorial of how to make cool paints.
A quick survey on xbox live and twitter showed that people would be interested in it.
So I decided to make it weekly series.

Starting Wednesday 10th Dec at 9pm (UK), I will be streaming a tutorial on painting.
If your interested, you can come along and check it out at www.twitch.tv/stuzib85, or in a VERY interesting development, at www.twitch.tv/forzamotorsport.
This is because, after I tweeted about the start of my new series, I was contacted by Turn 10 who asked if I would like to stream my tutorial on their twitch account too!!
Obviously I said yes, but now, I'm slightly nervous about it. The pressure has definitely stepped up!

Lastly, a couple of Ferrari paints.
The first is a tribute to both Schumacher and Vettel. Past and present Ferrari drivers.
Its a Vettel livery on the last car Michael Schumacher helped to develop, at Ferrari, the 430 Scuderia.

And since I've been racing around in a maxed out 250 GTO, and inspired by the FXX K, come the 250XX. Matching Tune and Paint available. Its awesome to drive and looks great!

That's it, finally, lol.
Thanx for reading all this and I hope to see you on Wedensday, at 9pm on twitch!

Hi guys!

Just a quick update after Wednesday's Twitch stream.
It went really well! I had 38 viewers, which was a new record for me. Didn't manage to finish the venom vinyl I was making, but it will be finished before next week's tutorial.
Turn 10 kindly hosted on their channel, as well as promoting my stream and joining in the chat too.
I want to thank them very much for their support.

My Twitch followers jumped up by 33, and I also got 8 new Twitter followers too.

Here's an image of some of my progress (posted by @Forzatographer on Twitter)

Still a lot of detail to go, but its looking good.

Highlights of the tutorial are available on my Twitch profile www.twitch.tv/stuzib85

Next week's tutorial will cover logo work, teaching people about making less work for themselves, where possible, and about accuracy.

Come check it out, 9pm (UK) on 17th December.

Thanks for reading this :)
