RCC XI 2022 | Beavis & Butthead

26 December 2022 | Forza Horizon 5

A new year, a new Retro Cartoon Contest. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to enter because I don’t play Forza that much lately and I paint cars in Forza even less. But I still support my buddy SnakeEyes Friex for all the effort he put in these contests, so I couldn’t resist.

For this year I picked Beavis & Butthead as my theme. I watched a lot of their shows back in the 90’s. This paint brought back a lot of happy memories. For a colour scheme I borrowed the colours of the logo design for the contest created by Snakeeyes Friex.

Car wise; I wanted a car with dual taillights so I went for the Nissan Skyline R34 (one of my favourite cars) but because of the texture issues with all of the Skylines in the game I decided to swith it to the Corvette.
Paint wise; I found a picture a while back of a Nissan Skyline where somebody used the taillights for eyes (I believe it was Sponge Bob). I thought that was hilarious and always wanted to create a car for Forza with the same concept. I started on one a while back but I never got to finish it. But now I had a new change.

The thought: I found a screenshot of the movie “Beavis & Butthead – Do the Universe” and thought that would work perfectly for the back. I also wanted to put them head banging on the side of the car and then “The Great Cornholio” on the hood (or bonnet). To dress it up a little I found a nice geometric design for the background that I could use with the colour pallet.
