Anyone want to start a Hotrodders Art Contest?
Dudes and Dudettes, there is an "Art Challenge" on the HAMB web site that I have been participating in for the past 2 or 3 months! It is a lot of fun and brings a lot of cool art to the viewing audience! A subject is picked, such as a 40' coupe or a 49' Anglia or whatever, and all artist submit their rendering of that subject. The winner is selected by the contestants and a prize could be set up if ya'll want it! What do you think! Anything would go as far as what medium you use!

"Gentlemen Sharpen your pencils"!!! :D

Here are a few drawings that I submitted to the HAMB art challenge!

Cool, Shane! I always love a convertible pickup! :) Have you tried to up the DPI setting on your scanner! Sometimes I have to set mine to 600 DPI to get a good scan!

If anyone is interested in starting a HRAC (Hot Rodders Art Contest) here is a suggestion for the first contest! I have this ugly *** Henry J that needs customization! If you want to participate just do a rendering of a Henry J similar to the pic! I'm sure a gasser comes to mind immediately. Take it to any limit you want! And have fun!

I would say 2 weeks should be sufficient, I'm sure we all have day jobs so that should give enough time to create art. :) Jan 9th is the deadline! Good luck & have fun! :thumbup:

Just so you're aware, we have done this type of thing in the past...such as here using a beat up Hillman as the starting point.

So if you have done this in the passed, it cannot be done in the future, is that what your sayin?
This contest is for everyone. Not just Photoshop! Drawings, paintings, computer art, etc. "Any medium is welcome!" Everyone is welcome!

Just trying to help out a new guy is all. What I'm suggesting is that it might be considered somewhat offensive for a newbie (12 posts) to waltz over here from the HAMB telling us you've just invented sliced bread and offering to bring us out of the dark ages with YOUR idea of starting an art contest. Obviously you didn't take the time to familiarize yourself with our past activities here in the Art Forum nor did you do a search to determine if this had already been done here and the type of response that it got. Otherwise you would have never posted "here is a suggestion for the FIRST contest" or provided the basic format of the contest "A subject is picked, such as a 40' coupe or a 49' Anglia or whatever, and all artist submit their rendering of that subject" if you had been aware that this was something already being done here at HR.Com.

You can start all the art contests you want and I wish you the best with this one. But I'm suggestion they might go over better if you recognize they are following in an already established tradition which other rodders, like ChevelleSS_LS6 have worked hard to get established, rather than being some new invention of the HAMB or yourself.

I thought he, fortypickup,was fishing for ideas to do to that Henry J.
The pic posted is too small to see detail and while I´ve found a bunch of Henry´s on the web none qualify.

That's the first thing I thought.


Dewey, I really like your method of re-integrating HAMB members into our society. ;)

Your gentle words of guidance are an inspiration to so many.

Later, mikey

So, are we doin' this, or what? :mwink:

I would love to but I can save the trouble, I lose hands down. I can build but not draw.
