April '08 Hot Rod Art Contest
Here we go for the April bout, fellas!

Only racing was champion of the last round & as such, has chosen a Daytona for the April subject, which is an excellent choice with loads of scope for ideas.

The leader board now looks like this...

Only Racing....1

fortypickup is running away with it! :D

Closing date for entries will be midnight on 26th April, giving participants plenty of time to come up with something & leaving some polling time at the end before the month is over.

Pencils at the ready!

Best of luck, everybody!

New rule: No foul language in the art threads... :D

I've just been recapping over the previous contests & discovered that the leaderboard was wrong - fortypickup has won twice so far, but I was confused when he handed the chair to 79C10.

I have ammended it.


Here are the winners so far in the order they happened...

Malc's Henry J

Job~Rated's Hornet

fortypickup's Zephyr Zodiac

He then handed the choice to 79C10, who picked a 57 Chevy Pick-Up - forty won it again

Only Racing's Starliner

Only Racing, killer version of the Starliner! :) Great chioce for the next contest, i'll have to see if I can find some time to get in the hunt!

Job~rated your doing a great job moderating the contest! I like the recaps of drawings at voting time.

Keep up the good work, kids!

Does anyone know how to make better scans of your hand drawns? Mine kinda got distorted.

Job~Rated 04-02-2008 04:43 PM

"Kinda got distorted" is an understatement! :D It's managed to distort from a Daytona into a Tudor Rat! :thumbup:

chlsnk, the idea of the contest is to do your own rendition of the chosen subject. This month's is a Daytona, as per the pic in my first post.
Your rod pic is all well & good, but not appropriate. I'll allow it, but don't bank on getting any votes. If you could, I'm sure we'd all appreciate it if you would stick to the subject matter in future.

As for your scan being distorted, it looks in proportion to me, but not everybody has Adobe Acrobat on their PC. Maybe it'd be a good idea for you to save the image as a jpg & use an image host or embed it in your reply where it says 'Manage Attachments'.

Good effort, nonetheless. :thumbup:

chlsnk 04-02-2008 06:08 PM

I feel really stupid right about now :rolleyes: I saw the other drawings and thought that they were the interies. I'm going to remove my origional picture and go back to the drawing boards.

Edit: is it our choice to draw the car in that angle or can we change that?

Job~Rated 04-02-2008 07:00 PM

You can draw it from any angle you wish, but the subject vehicle must be the one chosen - i.e. a Daytona. :thumbup:

chlsnk 04-02-2008 07:27 PM

Well my subject daytona angle has been chosen and my pencil has been fast at work.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 03:46 AM.
