edit: found it. Its a 370z. Not sure what that circle that looks like an sc400/soarer foglight is. First result in a google image search for "body kit 370" will get you the original image though. Nice car.

yep its a nissan 370z. i hope its the 1st prize. haha.

well. its just one of my dream car, i could have place porsche or a benz.

Okay guys, here I go with my Duke Nukem card.
I know, i suck at photoshop. :finga:
But this was a way to learn how to make realistic flames. Don't you think they are realistic?

http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/7197 ... mcardi.jpg

And for the contesters who made the "runic" video card and the one with a light stream and a dragon... GG! =D>

PS: For the ones who don't know about it, in the 1998 trailer for Duke Nukem Forever, the first sentence he says is "I was born to rock the world!". :supz:

Edit: I updated my model. Isn't it better?

My submission.

Submission for Dec 2009 Contest
Higher resolution if necessary: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v85/h ... a06398.jpg
I'm not much of an artist, but I tried my best. Was going for the sleek and simple look. Anyway, good luck to everyone.

EDIT: Here is the flipped version of my design (high resolution only): http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v85/h ... 1b0e17.jpg

Very nice! I'm a bit of a fan of Carbon-Fibre effects myself!

You're not totally wrong, but I think that legit reviews wouldn't give us inverted models. :P

Well it depends if HIS gave us an inverted template to start off with. :mrgreen:

Nate's gone off to CES, so it'll have to wait till he gets back to see how he want's to deal with it.

If when he gets back it's confirmed with HIS that they gave us an inverted template, at the very worst, the winner will have to flip their design once chosen. Rest assured it'll not affect judging of the competition.

I think that expertoc has just flipped his as all of the numbers, etc are the wrong way around...

I was wondering the same thing about whether the template was flipped or not

is this not the same one that we are designing here from the HIS site? > http://www.hisdigital.com/us/product2-472.shtml

Wouldn't be a hard fix anyway for whomever wins.

I think that this is a totally new design, so the heatsink shapes above are not applicable.
