Unfinshed due to time constraints - please imagine that the cars have drivers …

Pure - all new models, with a couple of image maps hand crafted in the Gimp.

boooriiiing…
well, car isn’t THAT bad subject, but why on earth it has to be some regular car? Why? WHY? WHY???

Hey! This isn’t the Weekend Walk In The Park - it’s the Weekend Challenge!

Do you really think the latest shiny new sports car is the only option??
The phrase “regular normal car” covers a lot of ground, and leads me to ask a question: whose “regular normal”?
And “based on” doesn’t exactly limit things, either.

Oh well, it just means more votes for my undeserving entry :slight_smile:

<edit: rereading the original version of this message didn’t sound right, and i forgot a “:)”…
feel free to ignore the horrible version of this message, quoted below, in full. thanks pofo! :wink:
note to self: wake up before posting messages>


(pofo) #10

It’s just that I don’t really like to model something that exists (heh, perhaps because it would make it too easy to find flaws in my model). It would be a challenge, just not one I’d put much enthusiasm into.

And as you said, it leaves more votes for you :wink:


(blengine) #11

oh no oh no oh no!!! i just read thew whole topic post… Tommy5 what are u thinking!!! why oh why did u narrow it down like that??

sorry no thumb. i cannot seem to find a free site with remote linking :-?

i am new to the whole contest thing, so i don’t know if i was supposed to post an image yet??? :slight_smile: i guess i got kinda lucky that the subject was car, being that i just finished this one, and new nothing of the contest until it was finished :smiley:


(ectizen) #13

Yes, you can post your image now :slight_smile:
You can actually post any time from announcement of the theme, until the close of entries, about 96 hours later. Posting early is a good idea, since in the event of a tie, the entry submitted (or last updated) first will win.

Technically, your model isn’t actually new, but I think we can let it slide this time :wink:
In the context of a Weekend Challenge, a new model is one that was created for the contest (ie. started after the theme was announced).

And I still think you should’ve gone with dark purple :stuck_out_tongue:


(Ecks) #14

Scuse me but you said that we must make real car… I like the hot rod of scrappy but it is not a real car… scuse me scrappy but it’s not just for the other entry. I like your hot rod very much but it is not a real car…


(snailrose) #15

huh…i might be in…


(PILER) #16

Hmmm i might enter this week… and uhh i was just at a car show and saw a car that looked almost exactly like the one scrappy made… so uh yes it is a real car =)


(DreamMaster) #17

I want to say… good luck. I’m out of this contest, I can’t model a car!!! :stuck_out_tongue: I do wish you good luck and I bet this contest will be a fun place to look at the cars… I’m looking forward to voting day!
