    Bmw M1

    Just had to shake some rust off. The last time I truly chopped a car was September. I've had a huge case of block, a massive case at that. I felt inspired to try an agressive little BMW. Comments appreciated!

    What do you guys think about a color change? I think I want to keep it the same as it is now. I like the way the dark grey flows with the rest of the mods.

    I sure hope so. I got my skill to a point where chopping became very easy and they became pretty high quality (I personally think) and then I just stopped working on them. Thats the same thing that happened when I used to draw cars. I got really, really good (Just ask shrimpboy424) and then just stopped. Luckily I havn't came to a dead stop in photoshop. I still like seeing how they turn out once I'm done.

    I know exactly what you went through... I have been there myself...well, the block part...not the high quality part. I think it's natural to burn out on something once you feel you have perfected it. Writers get it, singers get it...what always helps me is when someone challenges me to a 1 on 1 battle...

    I will snap myself out of my block, just because I want to win...especially if the results will be voted on publicly....it's different than a challenge or contest with multiple entries...I think anyone would be happy with a 2nd, 3rd or 4th place finish if there are 30 entries... but, a 1 0n 1...it's either win or lose...put up or shut up kind of thing...guaranteed to break the block.

    If you ever get that way again, PM me here for a 1 on 1 battle... and trust me, you will find creativity that you thought was lost.

    Haha, I'll look into it someday. Im sure. But do you think your upto taking on a 3 year experience chopper? Here I go, I'm getting competative already and it hasn't even been declared yet. Only thing is, I'm not too good on deadlines.

    LOL... no, I don't think I'd win... but like I said, your block appears to have faded... if and when it ever comes back, maybe my skills will have progressed...

    See, I told you that competitiveness brings out the best in us....

    I sent you a PM by the way...

    Oh yeah, and I've only been chopping for about 6 months...so, I know there is a big gap in our skill levels...

    Kit brushing isn't ricer. You can make it ricer if you want to. I may try kit brushing some time in the future though.
