The New Grounds Car
Hey everyone, I have just finished my longest and most tedious project to date!
First, However, Let me quote the FAQs to prevent confusion.
Q: No photographs? What about a photo of a painting I did in real life?
A: A photograph of a sculpture, painting, or some other piece of art you have made are in fact exceptions to this rule. Feel free to submit scans and photographs of your art if it's not already in a digital format.
So about 7 weeks ago, This car was your normal NASCAR Die-cast collectible. I finally got sick of staring at the boring thing on my counter, so I formulated a plan. 6 weeks ago I began, by grinding the Paint off of the metal body, and painting the insides. After I finished the main insides, I went on to the engine, then the wheels, the body, and finally, the hood. Then a Tank Man was stuffed into the drivers seat. If you wish to see every single step go to the thread. (Dont forget to remove the space) http://www.newgrounds. com/bbs/topic/1149887
There are a few things that I'm not 100% happy how it came out. For instance - The NEWGROUNDS text on the back of the car began to smudge when I added clear coat. There was some smudging of Everything, By everyone (slight bit on both sides). Those problems are irreversible, since it is under and happened because of the clear coat. However, things that I can fix, such as my sig on the trunk that cracked when I put the final clear coat onto it, Some of the tank decided to melt away when I applied clear coat also. That can be painted over.
Some things that were already there, were the scratches on the windshield.
Happy I am, though, with the final product.
Oh snap - Front page!
