No you can PM me a link to them and I will upload them here for the voting, unless you think its a strange thing to do... I am new here so I am just finding me feet :D I wanted to keep it anonymous until voting is over just to eliminate any biased voting...

I had a chat with Pabl0z earlier today and he gave me the go ahead. I was unsure of posting a new comp at first but the comp rules are for Signature comps and Chopping comps. This is not a signature comp and the chopping comps are for chopping cars as far as I know. So it should be fine then :)

Well we have a day and a bit to figure out exactly how it should go down. I dont see the point in posting the final creations of your work for eveyone to see before the voting begins, cause that defeats the point of a comp and kills the anticipation of wanting to see everyones work... Am i missing something in the rules? :) If no one likes this idea please say so and we can go back to the Code used in other comps i.e. the RED FINAL ENTRY code used.

Ok thi this my test on the edit button. I was wondering why eveyone was asking me to use the edit button all the time, so I think I get it now, sorry guys, my bad :)

an idea for a possible rule might be size restrictions? (resolution atleast, and filesize if needed?)

Wow, great work S2K....if im right the city in the background is good' ol Melbourne :lol: Nice photoshop skills!

Whatever happened to the photoshop skills comps we used to have? we did other things such as magazine covers, game covers and stuff...this could be the resurrection of it [i think it died after the t-shirt comp a while back, lol] good thinking Gavh2 ;)

I will possibly be entering this comp if i have the time :)

race_invader: One, don't quote pictures, for the eleventy-billionth time. Two, you don't need to quote the reply directly above yours.

Looks excellent, S2000, though as I said in the Photoshop Art Topic, you shouldn't apply radial blur to the brake calipers. The cars look a little dull, try adding some reflections. Lastly, the logo's a little hard to read, try making the scanlines a bit lighter.

Yes the name has nothing to do with the movie with the same title :lol: Just thought of it, used it and realised it was the movie...oh well..

Same as S2K, the city in my background is Melbourne, but its my own photography :D I spent a fair while on this, about three hours getting everything up to scratch..hope people like it =]

Ummm.... since when does EA use 'old' jewel cases for their PC games?

The rules for the resolution should have just been 700*1000px only, which would have made it a bit easier to understand, and that way you wont get retarded resolutions.

You still messed up then, jewel case covers are squares, not rectangles. ;)

:lol: Alright, just curious, I wasn't going to enter the competition anyway since my MS Paint skills can be easily outmatched by people with Photoshop.
