Now is the time to discuss the entries.
Obviously, if Camaroman was trying to sabotage MonaroSS's entry, it didn't work.
However, I'm still of the opinion, that "C" is overchopped.
It doesn't have enough semblance to the original.
I can live with the results. There will be plenty more comps, and I'm only just learning this stuff. I'm sure Camaroman will just be voting and encouraging those he voted for in future voting threads.
If I hadn't have voted for 'A' (Code Blue –see no need to concede) my 'E' entry would have placed 3rd, so I did OK. But I'm glad I voted for Code Blue and hope he tells us how he did that flat surface thing (I could do it with a lot of work but there must be some easier way.)
I'm also glad to see the comments about my 'E' entry. I wanted to show how, without any special effects, that Buick could have been a good looking car instead of the whimpmobile it actually looks like. GM did not have to change much - just the right things. It's the poor relationship of styling details that seems to let GM down. Like design by committee.
C is hardly the worst entry I've seen to not follow the rules. The contest w/ GMC van entries were the worst. Many of them didn't even use the original pic at all. Just slapped on a few pieces of the van onto an entirely different vehicle.
This is all for fun but sometimes turns out so nasty ...

thanks for the votes, congrats to monaroSS and CodeBlue. i'm pretty surprised at how well my second entry did...it really wasn't very good , thanks anyway though. about this little "contreversy," i wasn't consciously trying to sabotage MonaroSS's entry, as Rex put it, although i'm pretty sure it seemed that way .
props to Nos2006 of C&G for cleaning up my chop a bit
I thank you and everyone else for your support on my first ever call to the podium. I never expected the casket to be that popular.Originally Posted by MonaroSS
As for the 'flat surface thing', I have no idea what you are talking about.
he wants to know how you made the round car boxy
Rex is right. Is there some software function or tool that let you do that, 'cos that could be a handy thing to know, especially if you can wrap images around more shapes than just boxes.
Great work everyone. I didn't do too well, but with so many entries this time, it was hard to stand out. Hoping to do better next time.
No special function. Just alot of cutting, skewing and distorting.Originally Posted by MonaroSS
