    I had a feeling too. LOL

    This is suprising Rex isn't in the top 3 like usual? Is this his downfall? LOL just kidding. He's still an awesome chopper.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Re: Current Contest #109: Results!

    I've been so busy at work lately, that I'm not focusing all my efforts into my chops. So the last few weeks haven't been my best. I still lke participating though, and would rather enter a quickie chop than no chop at all.

    I'll be back. Bigger, better, stronger. Watch out!

    Re: Current Contest #109: Results!

    Thanx for everyone's support. That was fun chop, making a more muscular toy ala Hummer-like w/o the cliche Hummer design cues. Thanx, Prov, coming from one of da top choppers. Daban, great to see & enjoy your handiwork, hope to see more of 'em.

    Till next.

    Note: Did this chop on a friend's computer with a darker, lower contrast monitor settings. Only later to see sloppy shadows on my own computer. Got 2 be more careful with what u see & have good monitor settings.

    Great chop Bots,
    This thing would easily roll over a hummer

    Botsapper, although your entry was well done (except for the winch thing on the front bumper), I feel that it doesn't have enough semblance to the original pic. It looks like you used parts of the orginal pasted onto a different background as opposed to modifying the original (if that makes sense).

    Do you have the original picture you used with the new wheels and grass?

    Re: Current Contest #109: Results!

    Rex, here's the original inspiration. An F650 monster truck. As you can see I used the wheels & undercarriage but I used the Silverado's sheetmetal. All of the 'rado's hood and wheelwells are pulled & stretched to totally new proportions. The 'rado's original fender bulges are exaggerated to create the extended wells. It was a little difficult to still create a cohesive design with correct proportions & perspective, hence the 'strange' semblance to the original.

    Come to think of it, celebrity Beverly Hills face lifts often does that.

    After seeing what the F650 looked like in the original picture I like the chop all that much more
