It kinda sucks that some people figure they can get by with the least amount of effort, grabbing stuff from other people's hard work and posting it as their own. Meanwhile, there are obvious submissions here that people have truly taken the time to create something original.

It's definitely going to be interesting to see who makes the cut.
Hey,

I totally agree with what you just said there. It is frustrating when this happens in art and design work, people choose to take the more easy routes. Whilst there are people that have put a lot of effort in these, there are always some that just decide to slap a wallpaper on a design or just use images elsewhere. But don't get me wrong, I mean, all of these designs look good! But yeah...lol. :drinkers:

Sorry, I'm being petty. I think most of us have already made our point.
LMFAO!!! This is getting hilarious! People just keep doing it! I guess they just see contest and enter, no reading of the RULES, or the posts to further elaborate on the RULES.

Lazy Lazy Lazy, Lazy reading and Lazy designing.

Hey some of us just happen to have pictures of our engines sitting around. But thats definitely a render not a photo, looks to be German v8 of some sort(possibly a bmw) and almost certainly "borrowed"

Sorry, my bad. I should have just assumed that we all had pics of our engines sitting around. Wait, I probably have one. Let me check...
Nope. Guess not. I'll have to see if I can find a render somewhere to post up. LOL

Thanks,

*EDIT* :

I got bored so I thought it wouldn't do any harm in presenting my card in a more three-dimensional aspect and show the missing bits? But if its too much then please, any morderator just tell me to get it off here mehe. =]

Thanks,

Hmm... Isn't this suppose to be the other way around? I think it was. and it said bracket on the design as well on which side the exhaust is on.

It'll be up to them to prove they have permission to use said graphic. Else with the crackdown stance we're forced to take, their entries will be disqualified.

Hello everybody, nice works (some very good and some even better =D> ) I´m just working on my design too :) but I have a question - there´s rule 1) This contest is open to Legit Reviews forum members with a valid shipping address anywhere in the world, but taxes and tariffs are not covered if they should apply where can I put the address (I search in profile but didn´t find out) to fill this rule? I´m from Czech Republic and of course I do it for fun O:) but no one never know. So good luck everybody and thank´s for any answear.
