    I didn't do so well myself, but the level of talent here is extremely high, what I'm used to seeing with Forza with its livery editor for years. It gives me a lot of liveries to drool over and collect.

    Congrats to all for a fun, and long event. And to the winners! The final round is going to be super hard to pick through.

    I highly recommend that you add these liveries in your collection and check them in details in the game. And if someone else wants to have a go at a "neutral" photoshoot like I've done, feel free to let me know!

    As promised, I used my livery in the Manufacturers Series since the day I made it.

    This is for today, not my best result but you guys were a little bit with me! :D



    Qualified P7 in a 134 points serie (highest I have ever been part of).

    I decide to start with the medium tires and I'm P3 after the first 3 turns!! :odd: :confused:

    Not a bad race but I couldn't keep it this good.
    No big mistake but I finish P6, where I think I deserved to be.


    Sorry for the off-topic but I wanted to share it with you! :)

    Decided to sit out the last series as it wasn't serious, ready to get stuck into the next one though

    Congratulations to all!

    It was a very tight competition, and the level was very high. The winner here "only" got 24,2% of votes, and the finalists got at least 15,3%. In our usual rounds, it's very common to see the winner and podium with more than 40% of the votes, hence the real suspense on this GTPlanet edition!

    Now even if the community has spoken, the final winner is up to @Jordan ! The finalists are all on an high level, but on very different styles. The "traditionnal" black and white with blue and red accents for @Marfless and @Cytoria , an impressive line work for @Barboosa and an audacious color choice for @NBDESIGNZ !

    It's also worth mentionning that among the finalists, we've got two "veterans", and two "rookies", for which it was the very first competition entry (and even the very first post on GTPlanet for @Marfless . It shows how strong our community is, and how welcome newcomers are!

    Now I'll just leave some pictures here to help Jordan in his final reflexion... Good luck everyone!

    Huge congrats guys so well deserved. Hardest voting I have done as every time I looked I changed my mind and had a different 3. I saw new details or features I liked.
    Awesome to see new names and the standard of entries by everyone was amazing. I'm so stoked as many of them have made their way to my garage thank you.


    Good luck Jordan.

    Thank you everyone for not giving me a single vote, I now trust you all as a community when it comes to livery taste! :lol:

    Honestly, the level of competition was so damn high. I have no envy now for Jordan picking a winner from such a strong field of finalists. Whoever wins will certainly deserve it though. Congratulations all, and thank you @Cytoria for the running of the competition.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in this special round of the Livery Editor competition. I have invested the last 19 years of my life into this community, and to see so many people contribute their talents to help commemorate GTPlanet is always very special and quite humbling. Of course, I would like to extend a special thanks to @Cytoria for doing such a great job of maintaining the best-organized GT Sport Livery Editor competitions you can find anywhere.

    :gtpflag:

    Now, it's time for me to make some decisions...

    Although we have had two previous years of GTPlanet-themed competitions, this one — with its Gr.3 category restriction — is the most challenging for me to judge. Because the cars themselves are so similar, it forced you, as designers, to work within those constraints to find ways to express your creativity on utilitarian car bodies. I have always had an affinity for realism in video games, so in my opinion, these constraints have resulted in this community's best work yet.

    In no particular order, here are some of my thoughts on each of the finalists:

    [​IMG]

    @Marfless' Huracan instantly became one of my favorites when I first saw it, and I'm so glad it was recognized as a finalist. :D I will admit, it does have a slightly unfair advantage considering the fact that the Lamborghini Huracan is one of my all-time favorite cars. To see it in Gr.3 form, wearing an expertly-crafted GTPlanet livery is just... WOW! :drool:

    ---



    [​IMG]

    @Barboosa, you are a wizard. This is one of the most striking and breathtaking liveries I have seen in a long time. To assemble a design with this level of complexity and end up with a livery this cohesive and elegant takes raw talent. I can only imagine trying to replicate this livery on the RSR or another vehicle... for someone of my skill level, it seems nearly impossible.

    ---
    [​IMG]

    @NBDESIGNZ, this was a very bold choice! In previous competitions over the years, I have been consistent in selecting liveries which stay true to GTPlanet's theme and color scheme. (I assume most people think GTPlanet's colors derive from Gran Turismo's branding and, although it is convenient, that is not the case. Red, black, blue, and white have always been my favorite colors since I was a young child, so of course I design my own website around those preferences.)

    This is one of the first designs which used a different color scheme which I could actually consider awarding as the overall winner, which says a lot about just how well-executed and simply beautiful it is!

    ---

    [​IMG]

    @Cytoria, this livery is so good, it feels like you hacked into my brain and decoded what I would consider the "perfect" GTPlanet livery to look like. :lol: I love the simplicity and the clean lines combined with the colorful accents. It is, somehow, both complex and minimal at the same time! The logo placements are also superb. The way the "planet" logomark is emerging from the hood vent above the logotype is brilliant! :D

    ---

    To ultimately make my decision, I have to narrow down the finalists to two: @Cytoria's NSX and @NBDESIGNZ's AMG GT.

    On one hand, we have one of the best "traditionally"-branded designs in the competition. It only seems logical to reward a livery that looks like it could have driven right off the pages of GTPlanet itself! On the other hand, we have a design that startled me in its boldness, creativity, and beauty. Likewise, that remarkable effort is also worthy of reward!

    I have wrestled with this decision over the past several days, and I will admit, I came very close to awarding both designs with co-victory. However, that would ultimately be a cop-out, and while doing some chores away from the computer yesterday, I suddenly realized what I had to do.

    [​IMG]

    Six months, nine months, and years from now, this competition will ultimately be remembered for @NBDESIGNZ's stunning work on the AMG GT. The very fact that I, a stubborn devotee to the GTPlanet branding I have created, am even considering this unusual livery to be the winner is a testament to just how exceptional it really is. I keep thinking about it and I keep coming back to it, and I think that means — regardless of color scheme — it has to be my choice for overall winner. :D

    Congratulations, @NBDESIGNZ, and thank you so much for sharing your talents with us!

    Now, it's time for prizes! I am awarding all four finalists a free year of GTPlanet Premium membership. @NBDESIGNZ, as the overall winner, I'm also sending you a free copy of our book, GTPEDIA: GTPlanet's Guide to the World of Gran Turismo, and a GTPlanet logo vinyl sticker. Just send me a private message with your mailing address at your convenience. All of the top liveries will also be featured on our homepage and social media, so expect a lot of comments and downloads in GT Sport's community over the next few days!

    This is a really challenging time for everyone in the world, and I hope this contest provided a nice escape from all the doom-and-gloom we now see on a daily basis. I know it certainly did for me, and I have enjoyed looking at everyone's work. Thank you once again to all who participated, thank you to @Cytoria for his organizational efforts. Stay safe and healthy, guys!

    Huge congrats @NBDESIGNZ Well done champ. Thank you to everyone who entered and has now provided me with an insane garage of GTPlanet liveries. Compition was tough but satisfying to be part of. And let's not forget @Cytoria efforts in organising this beast of a comp and almost winning it. Thank you @Jordan for taking the time to judge this.

    Cheers everyone and stay safe
