Topic: Race car creative slump

Hi there!
I know I'm new, so I'll start off with introductions. smile
My name is Russell, and I have been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember. Boba Fett has always been my favorite character, and I do come in here from time to time, just never registered. I also have quite the collection of expanded universe novels, so I'm not just one of those movie nerds haha tongue

Anyway, I have a bit of a problem, and was wondering if any of you have any suggestions, ideas, etc.
I have a desert race car (class 9 if you want to get specific) that I am designing with a bit of a mando/starwars theme. Nothing over the top, just subtly star warsie. I got the hood covered, and thought I had a design for the side, but stopped before I wen't to far because I'm not sure if it will look right... Soooo im here to ask of your opinions here smile

Some pictures of its current state:

The last picture is my number with the rebel sunbird symbol. I've always been a fan of it, but not sure if it will go well with the mythosaur skull on the hood. The white dot on the side of the car is where the sunbird/number will go if I decide to go with that. (I can always remove the dot too, not set in stone)
My main dilemma is whether to go with my original plan, just put a number in the circle, or do a completely different design for the side...
So, does anyone have any thoughts as to what I should do? Such a minor detail in the grand scheme of things, but one that I want to get just right.
Thanks for all your help!!

P.S. I was thinking maybe something tribal-ish on the side that enhanced the skull up front. Not sure though...

Re: Race car creative slump

The car looks awesome so far. If you wanted to stick with a Fett theme you could do a wheat symbol on the side with your number? Not sure how that would work though that might be too cluttered. On it's own I think the rebel symbol looks great. If you wanted to go for overall fandom I see nothing wrong with using it alongside the mythosaur.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: Race car creative slump

Hmmmm, I like the wheat symbol, but I'm not sure how to cleanly incorporate the number with it. I'll probably just use the rebel for now I suppose.

Thanks for the support! big_smile
