Now that the game is out I can share this
This job sprang directly from deviantart.com exposure. The art director for this project was initially exposed to my work from my gallery here.
Back in March of 2006 The company that heads up the packaging and visual identity for a number of Microsoft XBOX titles contacted me about doing some artwork for Forza Motorsports 2. What started out as a few comp renders quickly grew to well over 20 different assignments for the box-art in various world markets, ads, in-store promos and more. Many initial concepts were created and ultimately discarded. Several different cars were created for various European, Asian and North American Markets.
There are still some ads that I created that have yet to hit the various game publications, so There are still some images that cannot be shown.

I'm currently working on similar projects for other upcoming titles of all sorts.
