I'm impressed you managed to make something good looking with the modern sponsors. Great job.

 

 

Denaris obvious talent aside, what makes it easy to create fantasy liveries is there are no restrictions. Sponsors can be swapped about and colours etc to fit what looks nice. Whereas in reality you have to place sponsors where they've paid for their branding to go and you have to use the agreed colour scheme for their branding (unless you're a top team who generally control that)

 

For example on that retro Renault livery, it's more than likely the Total areas will be red and the Total lettering would be white, which would add a rather garish edge to the design opposed to the subtle black and white areas.

I'll be on the train, don't worry

If the below is anything to go by... its going to be awesome! :D

 

Classic Renault livery as promised

That is superb. Perfect for their return, modern with a great nod to the past.

 

Even if Haas does have a yellow livery, this is distinctive enough to stand out.

That is awesome work. Good stuff. 

 

If you now do a version with the Total on the front and rear wing side plates with the red background (e.g. Redbull), perhaps move the office 365 to the rear wing.  

 

And find somewhere for the Renault Diamond (think Mercedes GP engine cover) then I think you are very close to a real version.

You hit the nail on the head there. My design philosophy is more of a 'what if?' rather than 'This is how it should look'. But I'm happy to cater to requests, this is all for fun at the end of the day.

You know the Total red doesn't look as bad as I thought it might either. Some nie little adjustments to the design too, subtle changes like black rear wing now. That's one nice looking car, awesome work Denaris, as always.

Nice work. It's a throw back to the R30 livery with nice white accents to brighten things up. My only critique is that I think the Renault Logo should be more promident.

It looks nice but a Ferrari F1 car needs to be mostly red. That livery, less curved and more angular could almost be the McHonda.

I agree, that's why I wasn't sure sure about it! But I saw this and thought I would give it a go anyway.

It's an interesting design study, and something a little different.  While no doubt Ferrari fans would be up in arms about the lack of RED, if this was the livery that brings a world title back to Maranello, it would become instant legend. I also think that if the rear wing end plates were red instead of white, the whole scheme might just be "red enough" to work! :)

It's not exactly unprecedented:

Excellent point.  It also raises an interesting theme of "what-if":  what if the predominant color on a Ferrari was and always had been white or yellow or something other than red... just with red accents?   Or if the predominant color of other teams had been something else... like a McLaren in British racing green, etc.

How about a Rothmans design? Preferably on a McLaren, even though it was Williams that sported the brand in it's day. I'd like to see a Rothmans Honda again though :)

It's... different. Not bad looking (at all) , but not a Ferrari. I think it still needs a little more red to be a Ferrari, and I'm not too sure on that green bit.

The Renault is excellent, while the Ferrari has too much white. Since 2002, Ferraris have been whiter anyways.

This might seem a bit out of place given that this thread mostly covers F1 liveries, but my question is:

 

What do you think Prema Powerteam's GP2 livery is going to look like? Will it be the same as the Euro F3/Italian F4 livery? Or will they go for something different?

 

Anyone who wants to do a mock-up, feel free to as I have very limited Photoshop skills (in fact I don't even have it)...

I like it but it reminds me more of a Minardi than a Renault. I do wonder why PDVSA gets so little love? While its Renault's largest sponsor, it usally gets the least signage on these fantasy liveries.

I think if a little black was added into this new fantasy livery we'd have nice looking and a realistic potential livery.

IMO:

 

- It can satisfy old Marlboro livery fans.

- It can satisfy McLaren original orange livery fans

- It can satisfy Honda white livery fans

I really really like that. I do wish McLaren would go for a golden/orange livery, it would look so good.

 

That has definitely set McLaren livery expectations to an unrealistic level. Prepare for the disappointment!

 

Was that made last year for 2015?

Ferrari already has fair bit of white since like 2010, add even more white and it'll be too much.

Having said that, I never liked how they painted the bottom 1/3 of the car black in the past sev years, so departure from that would be welcome.

to be frank, that yellow mclaren always looked as if color degenerated from the paint either due to crap paint or being exposed to sunlight or fluo light too much :lol:

 

btw what? i didnt know Segafredo was on mclaren in the past. I knew it was on toleman and later williams in 90s.

For the Portuguese GP 1985, Marlboro had Keke's car painted yellow to promote Marlboro Lights.  Not the first time a sister company of Marlboro had a red-and-white McLaren given a new look...

Which are gold, but that shade of gold didn't look good on TV. Hence the yellow.

No I thought it is the result of bad quality, It is awful but Jeremy Hancox's design is stunning.

So it is not done because It is not orange. It is crapish yellowish Marlboroish something  :p

Don't want to be a party pooper but I suspect some people may have a preference for the semi-rendered livery creations rather than the flat ones. Presentation counts for a lot but the livery should be the prime thing that counts. It's also possible a good 2D livery doesn't transpose nicely onto the car in 3D  from different angles. Often a straight line on a 2D livery will traverse multiple curved surfaces creating strange lines, accounting for this is one of the main challenges of a great livery.

Can't be F1 pre-season without it!

I did mine, but without a full thread and co-participants it was a near waste of time. Nevertheless I'll throw it in here, if my link to photobucket works.

Nike%20Synergy%20Honda%20F1%20team2016_z

Sorry about it looking flat but it's a product of MS paint.

Story... Our Synergy F1 Team 2016 team are still partnered with Honda power. Poor results in 2015 could not be blamed on Davide Valsecchi but he leaves the team after gaining just a single point to show for such a gallant effort. Marco Andretti and Kamui Kobayashi say on. Joined by development driver Carmen Jordá. She will serve in a fully standby role the whole year, with the promise to take part in at least 3 races (typically 1 start every 7 race weekends, beginning at the Spanish GP) and six further P1 sessions.

We will have special dispensation to run a special second colour scheme just for her. Due to our Pantone sponsorship and their colour of the year 2016 being a combination of Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz. Snapple backing replaces DrPepper as brand awareness theme for '16. Paul Smith high end fashion company fully joins our co sponsor member group and RBS (plus underside of the rear wing) provide extra "help" to overcome a shortfall in performance revenue. Carmen brings a pile of Spanish supermarket Euros. Kamui locks in more from Toshiba. The rest of the income is again provided by Nike. And to launch the 2016 car, will be hiring Madison Square Garden for a media bash and fashion show, to synergy into Nike's securitisation of the NBA team wear deal in the coming years.
