Absolutely love the retro look and 'classic' space sci-fi feel to this art piece! I am rather disappointed this did not get more attention in the contest and that it didn't win for it is unique and interesting - it would certainly stand out and catch the eye's attention more placed next to the other magazine ads. Anyway back to the composition, I love how you really pay attention to the details from the license plate, the play of light in the image, the design on the car, the color scheme, right down to the "All Weather Soft Landing" on the tires:-) Yet another wonderful addition to the Retropolis collection you have - be careful, if you continue you will have enough to fill a coffee table book (and yes, that is a suggestion:-))

Well, thanks - I'd love to do a book, but I think I'm still a few dozen pictures short :).

Well, like I said below you can't ever predict what a panel of judges will or won't like, so I guess you should be glad you're not on the panel :).

If it's any consolation, though, I'm pretty sure you could break my heart too - without even trying very hard.

Yes, you are right about the judges…I just experienced that a few days ago in another contest.
I was just wondering how much time a piece like this takes you to make? Well, mine turned out to be a disaster, so, I don’t think I have the slightest chance to even impress you… :)

Well, I abandoned my second one completely, so I know all about that kind of disaster. The second one just didn't want to come together, somehow.

I did spend quite a bit of time on this one. Though it wasn't the only thing I was working on, I tinkered with it for probably about two weeks. The characters and the environment all use things I've built previously, so most of this work was really centered on texturing the car and lighting the big scene, which was rendered in several different layers that I combined together in Photoshop.

Ooh, two weeks makes sence..if you already had some of it done.
It is such a professional work, and you have great imagination! But enough flattering ;) I 'll be watching your work from now on :)

I really thought i had a chance of winning. I thought i had really good entries. But the then i opened this, and, i just knew that i had lost....wow, thats all i can say. I have the urge to step my game up, but i don't know if I can beat your design. What a great job, good luck! Check mine out, i might try another one now. lol

Actually I was just looking at your tribal/Pacific Northwest one last night, and I like it.

There's no way of knowing what a contest's judges are going to like or not, so it's possible that whatever you like about mine will rub them the wrong way. Wouldn't be the first time.

I have to admit, though, I've been working on another one myself and I'm having some trouble avoiding comparisons :).

Dayamn, Brad. You've taken a care I have zero interest in and made me look twice, three times, and then check my current car's loan balance :lol:. As a proud owner of one of your Mad Genius shirts, I heartily approve of this skin! If I had a skin like this on my car, I'd probably get fired from my job, but I'd sure look great leaving the parking lot!

Heh. It's not the job per se, it's that some in management are very picky about projecting a professional-enough image. "Professional" in this context meaning no shorts, no T-shirts, minimal jewelry, no space suits or flight helmets, that sort of thing. I don't think this excellent look fits the profile.
