Can someone Help me
I was wondering if someone could help me ? I want to see what my car would look like if it was lowered 2" and Painted Black. I have tried to "play" with Photoshop and All I do is mess it up. I am building this car for my Son who is in the Marines and is in Afghanistan and also was in the War in Iraq where he won a the Medal of Valor so this is my Gift to him for serving Our Country and also making me a VERY PROUD FATHER!
Thanks for your time and effort
Wow, Great Dad!!! Great Son!!!!!!!!!!:TU:
I Forgot to say this is not my car it is a Picture I found on the web that looks just like it........The car is in great shape (just a small rust spot in the trunk) Same color and all. only difference is the wheels. They are American Racing Wheels. That I am not really fond of but they look okay. I just wanted to let everyone know in case the person who owns the car sees it and freaks out!
Once agin Thank you to any one who can help me
please someone make up a 71 or 72 pro street riv need to make a poster for the bar............. joe:beer
Does anyone use the 3-D program BRYCE? It's an awesome program with endless options. I don't have any car pics. But here is one for a band. The background and tree are generated in Bryce. The silhouettes were made in Corel Photopaint and imported into Bryce, then rendered. Then I took the rendering into Photopaint and added the faces (blending them in). The logo had an embossing effect added to polish it up then was imported onto the pic. What I did with Bryce is just about 1% of what you can do with the program.
here is the link
P.S. the reason I did the link is because of an issue I have with my windows explorer. It can't handle going from one folder to another with out crashing (very frustrating). I have windows XP, does anyone have any insight on this?
How about a chop? I hope your kid comes back OK. Good choice of car for him.
Thanks Floyd......I never thought of that.......It Looks cool! How did you do that? I really wish I knew how to work my Photoshop.....I can wrench a car but I can't figure this puter stuff out!!!! That is the reason I like the pre 70's cars cause they did not need a computer to run them!
Chopped and Lowered he would love that!
I Hope that he comes back safe also! Things are heating up over there and Mr Bush wants to get relected so I think we all will be hearing alot more coming out of Afganistan real soon! His Camp had a rocket attack a few days ago no one was hurt. So Everyone PLEASE keep all of our Men and Women in the military your prayers no matter where they are!
Thanks again Floyd!
I don't have photoshop. I just use paintshop. The eyedropper in the toolbar will pick up background colors, thus allowing good blends. That pic only took five minutes to do. Lotsa fun! I can't lower a car though. Thats were photoshop comes in. For me to lower a car I'd have to erase and redraw the wheels. Again, I hope your kids OK. Don't let the media get you down. The majority of the arabs our glad when we help. I am a gulf war vet.
I'm not to good at this but here goes..
Here is my first attempt.I know it is not a buick,but at least it ain't no Chevy.Cannot figure out how to do the background thing yet.Had a few hours of fun learning this though.
Buick El Century
Heres the highly sought after 1974 Buick El Century.
I gave lowering a shot in Paint Shop...
I couldn't resist:grin:
Disturbingly cool! :TU:
OK here's my effort....BEFORE!
I have to say that the car captures the true era and the "RoCk & RoLL theme,
That is really sweet looking..........I always dug those big 50's Buicks! :bglasses:
ON My scale of 1 to five I have to give it...:TU: :TU: :TU: :TU: :TU: I Have say that I am stingy in my ratings............But That look shoots :blast: them down!
Early in this rather artistic thread, Chris Lott demoed his Skylark with a "Cutlass" top...I've got a 72 Sky-Custom, with that kind of top on it...what give? Anybody??
