Here's mine. It's the new Alfa Romeo Brera. I find the Brera isn't a coupe more a hatchback. I made a new model and that's a coupe.

Crude by the standards of the Photoshop gods here, I'm sure, but it was immense fun to make. I was immediately inspired and I couldn't let this contest pass me by :D

It's a V6-powered, retro-inspired baby Maserati that I've dubbed the Mistral II. Hope you like!

LOL, this was my next idea! I was thinking of making either a new Tuscan or Sagaris. However, it's hard to guess how TVR will progress their designs. I might go for a small Noble ;) We'll see if I have time.

I gave in because there are so few good TVR pictures, especially in silver. There are also few cars you can morph to look even remotely like a TVR.

Actually I ended up being able to do something. I had nothing to do the last hour and a half of work or so. Not too extensive (front end work mostly), and it might be a little pixelated from lower res source images, but here it is.

Though the Solstice looked a bit like the 599 Fiorano. So I guess this is a Ferrariac 199 Fiorstice.

S2 / 4 / Some blurry areas but I like the concept as a whole. Swage line looks a bit too dark IMO.
BryanRC / 3 / Again, nice concept. I like the colour combination and wheels. Silver on front too rough.
speedfreak_77 / 4 / Good clean chop and the design works well. Your rear arch shading is unconvincing though.
Porsche-Power / 4 / Makes a surprisingly nice Alfa Romeo. I like the background change a lot.
phantomex / 5 / As above, makes a good Mercedes! Would like to see a clean non Police version.
[B]DoMiNo / 5 / My personal favourite. Design is very good! I do dislike the gold door handle though.
TheophilusChin / 5 / While not contemporary Jaguar I do love this chop. Colour is a bit too metallic though.
rpjn / 5 / Great work! I love a bit of airbrushing... Nice first post for CSS. I would prefer exposed rear wheels though.
blackstripe / 3 / Nice work. I like the roof colouring but some areas don't flow very well.
ACcartoons / 2 / Good idea, not so good execution. With some tutorials you would be a fine chopper.
Speedstick / 5 / For a rush job that is one great chop! Very nice design and great re-colouring work.
accurick / 2 / Nice work so far but it looks half finished compared to your normal chops?
Iqo' / 3 / Nice improvement from the last contest. I like the new front and all the work is very clean.

S2 -4 Great Chop But the front seems a bit to upright.

speedfreak_77 -5 I love it I love it,can I have one in blue:grintoothless:

Porsche-Power -4 Nice quality chop but it just looks too much like the 8c

phantomex -4 One word COOL!

DoMiNo -5 That is a work of art, Love it!

TheophilusChin -5,Brilliant Chop Theo,I hope jaguar has seen your idea.

rpjn -5 that is the coolest hotrod ive ever seen (and im not realy a fan of them but you may have changed me:lol:)

blackstripe - 4 Its nice but the edgier bumper doesnt suit the car very well.

ACcartoons -3 Good work but you need to try tidying up the car a bit.

Speedstick -5 If there was a car equivalent of a hot naked woman,that would be it, Im sure your gonna win this one!!:devil1:

accurick -3 The larger grills make the car look like its turning its nose up at somthing.

Iqo' -3 The lincoln grill only works with edgier shaped car, massive improovement over your last entry though.!

Great contest; as usual the creativity and sheer skill here blows me away!

S2 - 5 - Looks like it took a lot of effort; you didn't leave much untouched, and it all looks very clean. One of the more ambitious entries, and it pays off!
BryanRC - 2 - Interesting idea for a send-off model, but you played it too safe in not changing much.
speedfreak_77 - 5 - Gorgeous work and a wonderful vision.
Porsche-Power - 4 - Another great concept, it makes a natural Alfa. I do wish you had done something with the headlights, but other than that it looks perfect.
phantomex - 4 - Makes a wonderful baby SLS or something; terrific idea. I'd have preferred it without the graphics and light bar.
TheophilusChin - 4 - Flawless chop work as usual, though there's a certain level of innovation I've come to expect of your chops (which obviously we all look forward to) that I just don't see here. And the Barbie pink is a little much! :P Still amazing.
rpjn - 4 - The wildest concept for sure! I could imagine seeing this at SEMA, or something. But where are the headlights? And the double grille? It is a Pontiac after all ;)
blackstripe -3 - Neat idea but it's got kind of a "sad NSX" look up front. Some more aggressive headlights (perhaps lower-set) would have done wonders.
ACcartoons - 2 - Wonderful concept (and the only Porsche here, I'm shocked!) bogged down by execution. You've done cleaner work.
Speedstick - 4 - Awesome car, to be sure. Pretty clean, too, though the far side of the grille is kind of awkward. The Ferrari bits work well, but it surprises me that you went to so much trouble up front without touching the rear, and the Pontiac wheels--while pretty--are still a bit obvious.
accurick - 3 - Looks like a Solstice modified to meet pedestrian regs :P Interesting idea, and the subtle changes to the DLO and wheel arches work very well, but as a whole it looks a bit unfinished.
Iqo' - 2 - I see what you were going for, and it's a good start, but a better shot of the grille--with a little more manipulation--could have made it much better. Some sharper edges all around could have helped, too...I feel like maybe the Saturn Sky/Opel GT would have been more suited to the Lincoln transformation (granted, that was out of your control).

07-10-2009, 07:07 PM
S2 - 4 - Great idea, but seems awkwardly upright. Is that a Bangle-butt drop-off thing I see around the back?

BryanRC - 2 - Not very many changes apart from the paint, some brightwork and base-model-like Pontiac G8/Holden Commodore wheels? Paint could also have been better executed.

speedfreak_77 - 5 - Looks like a production car to me! The new lines flow great.

Porsche-Power - 4 - I almost thought that was an 8C!

phantomex - 5 - Another car that looks like something out of the factory! The parts from the Holden Coupe 60 integrate well. Loved to have seen it plain though!

DoMiNo - 5 - Love the way this looks like a tribute to a classic car, and the integration of the turn signal /fog lamp into the design.

TheophilusChin - 4 - Great chop as usual but looks much like the F-Type concept, would have like to see a bit more risk-taking.

rpjn - 4 - Wheels are a bit wonky but looks awesome!

ACcartoons - 2 - Great idea let down by implementation that could have been better.

Speedstick - 5 - This one looks like it could actually work! The grill looks a bit wonky though, and new wheels would have been nice.

accurick - 3 - Nice idea, I can see that front end being implemented on some jacked-up ute! Don't notice many changes aside from the grillwork though?

Iqo' - 2 - Good start, but may have looked better if some other lines had been sharpened?

S2 |4| Excellent work but it does look a bit too similar to the Z4.
BryanRC |2| Nice colours but what else have you done?
speedfreak_77 |4| Great work but it lacks any real emotion.
Porsche-Power |5| Very good chop and you were the only one to change the background.
phantomex |5| Well done. Another excellent chop.
DoMiNo |5| My favourite chop of them all, but unfortunately I can't give 6 points and there are plenty of other worthy chops.
TheophilusChin |5| You never fail to amaze me with your skills. This chop is no different.
rpjn |4| Stunning, but not my kind of car.
blackstripe |5| Very impressive. Is it the new S3000 Type-R? :)
Speedstick |5| I love the wheels, but it does appear a bit bug-eyed. Still, very good as always.
accurick |2| Dissappointing.
Iqo' |3| A bit wonky and blue around the grills but the wheels are so awesome I gave you an extra point.

Lots of 5s this time!

S2-4-Nice quality, and good idea
BryanRC-2-Not really special. you haven't really much done.
speedfreak_77-4- Really nice quallity but not really much done. Only the nose.
phantomex-5- Really nice quallity and idea
DoMiNo-5- great quallity and it's really nice without much donors
TheophilusChin-5-It's a good shop and good idea
rpjn-3-I don't like the model and the model is not 1 model more 2 different cars.
blackstripe-3-Nice idea and a middle good quallity
ACcartoons-2- Not a great quallity: The rims aren't good selected and the nose isn't good the good collor and it's trouble and not clean. But why not the quallity like the buick
Speedstick-4-Really nice idea and really quallity but much donors.
accurick-2-Not much done that why it has 2 points but the quallity is good
Iqo'-2-Not much done and the grille is blue.

As DoMiNo said to me in a PM I seem to have missed off the 3 points for those that both took part and voted.

I will add them to the total points tally now.
