I'd like to know, so when someone trys their hand at it, it won't look awkward with your site colors.
I should have something in the next day or so.

Good question, we're considering light grays/browns and muted colors. Nothing's set in stone though.
The other guys will pitch in soon with their ideas as well.
Klassik, you have mad skills, I love it!

Woa, Klassik that is definately some awesome work that you whipped up. I like the whole type of "bad attitude" thing with the kid cruising around in his rod. What program do you use to make your quick sketch go from pencil and paper to a much richer version on the computer with color, fading effect on the windshield, lines more defined, etc?

I see other kids standing around by thier hondas with a cell phone or ipod in thier hands looking is young rodder is leaning cooly (do kids still use the word cool?) on his mean black gto or hot with his shades on, dreaming of living in a time when these cars were easy to get a hold of and afford. Those other kids can spend thier money on ipods and body kit for hondas, he would rather stick his money into his old muscle car. Or something to that effect. LOL

I used Corel Draw to make that full colour version. It was just a quick design so isnt very detailed

Corel has gradient colur settings and transparancy tools I used to do the flames, tyres and screen.

This would be difficult to reproduce as a screen print but is kool for use anywhere else.

Is it possible to download that program or do you have to purchase it?

even if it could be downloaded, which I dont think it can, it is over 200 mb for the basic program, not including all the fonts and other software in the suite.

It is not a cheap program either, unless you can lay your hands on a copy.

I used to have a copy of it. From what I can remember it was a pretty hard program to work with, but then again I was still pretty computer illiterate at that time too (6 years ago?)

It is like anything else, the more you use it the easier it gets,

Mind you Adobe Illustrator is harder to learn IMO. Corel is a much more logical, user friendly program.
