    Hoey's brief take on the Malibu

    Worked on it for a little while..had some important family issues come up and was unable to really do all that I wanted to with it, thus influencing me to not enter it on thursday...but figured id show off what I did anyways. Comments are appreciated, I know its flawed, minor things are off here and there...but all and all, im happy with how it was going and I may work on it some more eventually.

    Beltline is way too high and the head lights are sort of droopy.

    I'm not one to comment however, I can't chop to save my life.

    I'll never understand the fascination with taking a car and chopping the roof to the point where you have to be under 4 feet to get in it.

    Maybe I want to feel like a giant. It's fun sometimes.

    Just for the look I guess...and because it was a challenging chop technique that I wanted to attempt to tackle. The roof and the shortening of the car are the two largest aspects of the chop, set it apart from the actual picture the most, and I'm pleased with how they turned out..could be better tho, im gettin there.

    I understand it. I'm tall and I still want to chop the top on one of my future rides. I like the overall result. I get an Audi vibe from it, but much meaner. Great work!

    I agree, I was having a difficuly time finding a car to steal wheels from so I opted to grab a pic of these from the Vette page on Chevy.Com. Like I said, ive been chopping for a little while, but there are little things that i still need to master good techniques for.

    tailights looks TONS better

    healights are okay, I can see that you chopped the top of them off

    color of the car is nice but WAY too saturated

    roof chop is kinda cool but as stated above not many people would fit in the back seats.

    rims are nice but are in the wrong angle for this vehicle. Try to find somet that fit the proper perspective

    Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, there are quite a few techniques that I fail to pull off...im not great with wheels, and successful color changes only happen by luck with me ( The way I do both probably are not the textbook methods) As far as the chopped roof...that was doing it just to do it, changing paint and little things are great touches to a chop, but succesfully changing the structure of the vehicle is probably one of my favorite things to do in a chop.

    If anyone has any tricks, hints, or knows of some good tutorials..any help would be greatly appreciated. Ive been messing around with photoshop for awhile now, nearly everything I can do I have taught myself, id really like to find some loopholes and learn what can REALLY be done with the program (I'm using Adobe's PS:Elements..basic, I know, but when I was just starting out it seemed like the best to go with)

    Thanks again.
