    was wondering if i could get a sense from the community on my ability.

    here is an unfinished drawing

    http://www.filipowicz.ca/bigproto.jpg

    unfortunately i lost the illustrator file for this drawing about 2 months
    ago. during a hard drive crash.
    it has many hours into it..

    but after an extensive search through my backup cd's .. its no where :(

    but i atleast have this image that i rasterized before i lost it

    whatcha think??

    Very nice work adamfilip! Very realistic looking, especially the headlights and wheels. I like the blue!

    Dude! That Subaru is great -- you should definately re-do it!

    I love World Rally Championship racing and was really pleased that in NYC we can get coverage on the "Speed" network.

    Have you had any of your stuff in Mac Design magazine's monthly gallery? This is certainly on par with or better than the stuff that appears there regularly.

    World Rally, baby!

    A nice rendering, but don't pimp it Out, I don't like Rice Cars.


    Great Drawing.

    Do some other car, art can not be replaced not even by the same artist, you will be disapointed.

    Do another car but make a back up this time.

    Very good work.

    Very nice...better than anything I could do. I've got a lot of respect for people who have the talent and patience to create that sort of thing.

    I am always fascinated by how people create such beautiful things with simple programs that many people have. How did you create it? I mean, did you just draw a few straight lines, a few curved lines, and somehow draw the headlights through magic? I just don't understand "how" you can do that!!

    PS: I like your work. ;)

    You should definately submit....

    You can send your images to Mac Design Magazine through their web site -- just go to the "Gallery" section (nav. bar on left) and the e-mail link is at the top.

    Right now the Gallery is showing images submitted for the "Crabby" awards which were given out at Mac Design's conference in Chicago, but all the other issues (7 per year, I think) have a gallery of images created and submitted by readers.

    I didn't see a "gallery archive" on the web, but as a subscriber to the paper mag, I can say that the finished image you posted above is definately the kind of thing they'll print. They commonly include at least one auto image, so you'd certainly be in consideration.

    (Oh, and in the photos from the Scott Kelby talk at the NYC Soho Apple Store, somewhere in the first photo is...Dun-dun-DUUUN...the idea_hamster!)
