Anyone going to post up some suggestions too?

I had one...

How about people can make more than one chop, people can vote on two or more by the same artist, but only the one with the highest points will be counted up and added to the total?
I think then that whoever posts the most chops will win if all the votes for that person are counted as a whole, or it will hurt that person if it splits the votes between their chops and they're counted seperately.

Either way, I don't think it's gonna work.

It was just a suggestion as nobody else has come up with anything. :fear:

I just see that the contests seem to be becoming less and less popular year on year so we could really do with a major rule change to get people back into them.

I think it's got more to do with the images we've gotta chop. There's been some shockers, the angle's all wrong, or the car's covered in reflections, of the body just isn't great for photoshopping. There's also gotta be significant scope for improvement, and something decent to build off and build too (for example, a german sedan into a DTM car).

The once-you-post-your-pic-that's-it rule needs to go IMO, the threads are pretty-much dead and I think that affects the chop rate.

Also, perhaps it could be a good idea to work it backwards. Instead of giving people one pic to work with, give them a few options (say 3 donor images), and make a goal, like SuperGT or nascar or something.

Maybe push the site's spy shots theme; either make a car camo'd, or un-camo a car.

Some good ideas there, some we might try this time around.

What would people think to this:

Choose any image from http://www.seriouswheels.com/cars/20...4-Roadster.htm and make it into another car.

So everyone would have a similar theme (as it'd be the same base car) and then we'd get lots of different end results?

I don't have Photoshop installed at the moment. Both my Hard drives blew up. So I can't enter, sorry. =(

That's on the right track, I think, but those images are all shockers (I was going to chop one when they first came out, but all the pics sucked...and still suck).
