Howdy Ya'll, welcome to my FM5 Paint archive, some of you old timers may remember me as GRAV35 back in the days of FM2 - 3, i had quite a long time away, seeing as i never even had a 360 to play FM4 and Horizon. But I'm back now and looking forward to getting back in the booth :). Anyways a bit about myself.

Name: Matthew Grave
Age: 21
Location: Warrington, England
I have been playing Forza since FM1 on the xbox but only really got into painting after i got Xbox Live on the 360, on FM2. My painting skills gradually got better with the assistance of fellow painters, some of which are still around, but only really got serious after chatting with Barrybarfly, when we decided to found our own tuning garage, we made numerous releases all the way though the later days of FM2, before merging into Slo Poke for FM3, unfortunately, midway though FM3 i moved to the Isle of Wight to begin sailing and powerboat courses, became less and less active and then sold my 360 as there was no point in me keeping it. However, i now have an Xbox One and Forza Motorsport 5 so things are going to begin picking up again, although i will only be able to speak to y'all between September and April every year.
Anyways here be my designs!

The time attack car is nice, but that McLaren is really great. Nice job on the Pilgrim logo. I can't wait to see what you have lined up next.

Cheers Ace! my first FM5 Download ^^ cant really count the evo lol


Ok aaaannd on to number 3 :D

I've needed to use the wood grain effect ever since i have seen it available in the paint section so this had to be done :D

The logo idea has come from a friend of mine who is starting her own clothing franchise.

Still in pretty early stages

Cheers AB! I think it has more potential than people on here seem to give it credit for, plus you get a nice matte effect when you paint over it. I don't actually think i have seen it used on another car yet which is a shame.

Onto my next WIP, i thought i would have a go at my first fantasy livery, its pretty damn hard i don't know how those guys over the other side of the forums manage it, but anyways here we are thus far:



As always all feedback is appreciated, good OR bad!

Howdy yall, been a bit busy the past couple of weeks, but im back now :)

I was on facebook this morning when Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, uploaded photos of a car he has just had painted, and its a pretty funky clean design so i thought what the hell, anyway, here it is :).

Source pic: (some white parts have since been moved)

Cheers Ace! :) its one of those simple yet effective designs, i couldn't help but chuckle a bit when i saw it, i do believe he may be the Gumball with it this year, so i will update it as needed :).

and I've finally finished ze vanquish, it has been my first attempt at fantasy work, my layer count went through the roof a bit at first but ehh, may have another go at some fantasy work in the future :).
