The GT7 Livery Editor Competition #37 (Animalistic) - CLOSED

  • Thread starter Nuschel01


Enjoy Car Life
Fürstentum Lippe


Wild times ahead. This months theme asks you to unleash the animal in your livery designs. Last LEC's winner @huff chose this theme that was initially proposed by @Raphaele for GTS LEC #31. Let's hear what he had to say back then:

"The intention of this theme is not to cover pure competition cars. Let’s go with show cars, art cars and promotion vehicles. Visit your garage and select a car with an animalistic expression. Use any shapes and decals – in-game and own creations – that fit this intention and wrap the car in a livery that fits the respective animal. You also may come up with a message (e.g. »Save Wildlife«) if you like. It's up to you.

I don’t want to see race numbers or sponsor decals as long as they don’t have any animalistic reference. I do prefer cars with an animal in the model name or manufacturer name (e.g. Cobra, Mustang, Jaguar) or manufacturer logo (e.g. Ferrari, Lamborghini). But that’s not a requirement for your entry, just an appreciated option.

  • All

  • Allowed

  • Must have some inspiration from or reference to animals

  • -

  • One picture of the animal in its natural habitat

  • Allowed



  • The only way you can take part is to be a member of the GTPlanet forums. If you haven't created your account yet, click here.
  • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text.
  • Unsure how to? Copy and paste the following: [COLOR=red][B]FINAL ENTRY[/B][/COLOR]
  • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a competition.
  • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
  • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
  • Absolutely no entries which utilise edited/hacked file saves.
  • Winner gets to choose the following month’s theme.
  • The organisers may ask for the original image/livery and it must be submitted if so.
  • It's recommended to share the original livery online (in-game) to prove it’s your work.

  • All images shall have preview images which may not exceed 640 pixels in either direction (main and bonus pictures).
  • You have to post two main pictures of your entry using the mandatory location and settings as shown in the quote below.
  • You are allowed to post two bonus pictures in a spoiler ([SPOILER]...[/SPOILER]) with free location and settings (unless the unique restrictions of the week’s theme specify something else).
  • You have to make one post with ONLY the set allowed number of pictures and the FINAL ENTRY (see above) mark. If you want to add precisions/background story/links, you are allowed to double-post under your entry, but please put all additional images in a spoiler. The best way to do it will be to "reply" to your own post.
  • It is recommended you host your image either here on GTPlanet (via the Media section), or on Flickr
  • Not sure how to submit your image? Here's a guide for both methods mentioned above.
  • Do not attach your phots directly to your entry post.
  • A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
  • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier!
  • No post-game editing of any entry image is allowed.
  • Mark your entry with which platform you're on and which mode you're using, whether it’s taken on PS4 Base, PS4 Pro, PS5 Raytracing or PS5 Framerate.

  • You have to post a front and a rear quarter view of your car:
    • Mandatory Scape: S&Company East, Saitama, Japan (scape number 5)
    • Focal Length: ~80mm ±5mm
    • Aperture: f5.6 or f8.0
    • Shutter Speed: 1/1 Second
    • Exposure Correction: +0.5 to +1.0
  • Do not use any Filters or Effects at all and only the camera setting above within the allowed limits; the pictures are supposed to be as equal as possible for all entries and not give anyone who is a bit more savvy with the Scapes Camera an advantage! Try to stay as close as possible to how the video shows the shot to be taken!

NOTE: if you have previously entered, just go to Scapes > My Library > click your previous entry > Open Scapes > change car to the new entry, refocus and snap a new photo. No need to reposition the camera/car unless its proportions are wildly different.

Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a convo with me, Matski or any other participant you feel comfortable reaching out to.

PLEASE NOTE: Repeat offenders will be disqualified. If your entry doesn’t match the rules you will be made aware of it at least once, so please keep an eye out for any notifications reaching your profile.

hoping that "Godzilla" is inside the criteria for this theme?

Adding the pattern was a quite some work and I had a Race Car version of Godzilla completed - but then I readed the instructions for this LEC again and had to delete a few sponsor decals and rearrange it.

If you are interested, you'll find it here, the race car version is here.

Edit - Added second spoiler photo. Read the bonus pic up top as just getting the one. Now clarified.

Someday son, when your a little older.


The wheels were chosen because they have bent forks and look like the sea anemone tentacles waving in the current.


Wing end plate says Marlin if Google translate isn't lying to me.

Well the first thing that came to mind when I saw the Animalistic theme was the Mutts Cutts van from Dumb and Dumber. Just couldn’t figure how to do the windshield eyes and fur and tail off the back.
Well done on both skin textures, so many scales, weigh to go

I'll get me coat... (while I try to think of a better pun)

Great minds etc. I got half way through trying that for the commercial vehicle round, I've been thinking of trying to finish it for this

This livery started as something completely different, but when I added the white around the headlights it reminded me of a tigers face so I ran with it! I’ve very pleased with how it came out but I don’t think the main pics do it justice, but the bonus pics show it off better.

When the moon is up, the Testamonster comes out looking for easy prey...
Thank you for not closing this yet...

I was so busy with work on one side and with creating 17 more liveries for my R5 Turbo Europacup grid on the other side, that I almost missed out on that one...

After dabbling over some ideas, I decided to create a sleeps during the day, and comes out of the sewers at nighttime to roam the city streets and look for easy's called the Testamonster
