I designed the livery for the Nissan GTR Nismo GT3 that Queens' Design will be sporting during VCO x LFM FLExTREME. Some context: the Draft Show was on Friday 18th and I completed the design on Sunday 20th, making it a bit less than 48 hours turnaround.
I kept with the theme we've had so far with the QD cars of a predominantly pink livery with white and black accents creating the illusion of new shapes. For the GTR I wanted to give it a more silhouette look similar to that of the GT500 car.
To achieve that I painted the front end so as to make it appear wider, but also flatter using contrasts which should work from most angles. My basic idea was to emphasize the part of the hood above the GTR grille, creating a sort of "nose"-like illusion.
The sides and top of the car stay in line with the rest of the QD designs: Victoire on the sides pointing to "This could be You" and a personal sponsors counter on the roof.
For the rear I went with a callback to the older GTR designs, particularly from the JGTC era which had a thin bumper area below the "trunk" and "chunky" tail lights which seemed like blocks you could remove. I think it works quite well.
