Thinking of the ubiquitous 'car poster' on every teenagers wall. Trying my hand on my own work.


What do y'all think?

This car was named "BLACKEND" by the owner.... purposefully misspelled. :)

I think they're both pretty cool. Not quite enough info in #2 ... is that a Hemi Challenger? In any event, a band I was in several years back did a lot of classic car shows. The vehicle owners have money and would truly LOVE to have something like the poster of the Chevy in your first link. Good stuff and probably marketable, too!

#1: Already commented in the other thread, except that now I notice a tiny halo at the tail end.

Not quite enough info in #2

I like what you did with it, but a bit of light reflecting of the far edge of the hood would be nice, too.

ugh the text is too distracting in the 1st pic

maybe not so tight of a crop and a smaller text size? it'll make it look alot cleaner. if you want email me the version without the text and ill show you what im talking about...

Don't care for the tilted horizon at all in the first one. The angle adds nothing to the composition IMHO and looks contrived. Love the second one.

Agreed about the 1st one, the angle pulls attention away from the car.

I'm liking that first picture. I think the second image would look much better if you could see an outline of the entire car. I cannot see the bottom edge of the car because it blends in with the background. Keep up the good work and keep posting pictures, thanks!
