Dang! JUST missed it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I had it ready and was going to post from Uni today, but CSS didn't work from Uni, so I thought I'd post now, getting home after work, and its too late... Ahhh well...<p><br>I never gave feedback, so here goes:<p>mrfdesign - beautiful entry. Very well drawn. That's wicked! It just needs to be a bit more "sketchy" for added coolness to the image - but its otherwise spot on!<p>napoleondyna - Awesome entry frrom you too - I particularly dig the rear. A few minor perspective issues is the only thing that lets it down, but otherwise, superb entry! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>classic_saab_man - Awesome drawing too. I see perspective is quite good, but its a little bit tall and out of proportions. The design is cool and all. Also, you've verry successfuly shaped the car lengthways - but sideways you need to get a bit more shape happenning. So, for example, your sides need to be better sculpted, less of a block. Its a foreshortening problem - you'd really bennefit from attempting different angles and so on. But keep it up, because I see a LOT of potential there and I dig that style <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>DoMiNo - Ahh, what a superb entry! You've done it again! Beautiful design. Not too retro, but with its roots firmly where they should. fantastic entry. Only some of the shadowing on the bonnet could be improved - it looks like it has a slight hump on one side of the bonnet only and a dent on the other - its a rendering thing. But that's a B-E-A-UTIFUL entry! Very well done!<p>Jordmaniac - I LOVE the design of it, and I particularly like the sketchy style of it. Work a bit on observation and linework and you'd be laughing. Well done mate!<p>2o6 - Cool entry as well - love the rendering and design - for some reason it cries Renault, but thats not a bad thing. I think your proportions could improve a little, but hey, I dig the entry as it is <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Mr. Burns - Fantastic entry from you once again! that is tops! It does look a bit too tall and just slightly awkward in its stance, but its otherwise almost photorealistic. Fantastic work! Also, the bonnet has the same slight issue as DoMiNo's entry - the lighting is a bit awkward and it appears to have humps just on one side of the bonnet. But amazing entry - I really, really like it!<p>Flying Monkey 351 - Now THATS what I call awesome sketching. Perfect sketches - love them. Give it a tad more contrast and define some of the important elements a bit better. Love it though, thats fan-bloody-tastic!<p>AXIS - Great entry. You need to work a bit on proportions and I see a couple of perspective issues as well. focus on your sketching, because thats the most important element. I see your rendering is improving enormously, but its just hard to make it work if your proportions aren't impecable - so work on that and I reckon you'll be winning some of these contests in no time <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><br>Okay, now, for votes -<p>4 Points - Domino<br>3 points - Mr. Burns<br>2 points - flyingmonkey351<br>1 point - mrfdesign<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

wow! great entries everyone. <p>flyingmonkey351 - 4 excellent design and dramatic presentation. The design is modern , yet it captures the essence of the Triumph. very professional looking too. <p>Domino - 3 Nice execution and very recognizable link to original. the render is very magnetic.<p>Mr Burns - 2 neat evolution of TVR's design language, but a bit too tall looking. The render is very spectacular.<p>mrfdesign - 1 The simple flowing design language is elegant, but the side is a little slab sided.<p>excellent work to all the entries. Too bad I could take part in this. Looking forward to the next contest.
