STOP

Like the Photoshop game, sharing previews and ideas is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. Thanks!

Submit your final entry to me in a PM.
Oh for fucks sake. There's absolutely nothing wrong with sharing WIPs and critiqueing said WIPs. God dammit. Any challenge on a forum that's not about a car show, you know, forums where designing is all that goes on, even if it's for an expensive prize, WORKS IN PROGRESS ARE ENCOURAGED AND REQUIRED. Especially if you're designing something unique to fit a certain criteria. I hate that every challenge on this forum works in such a dissociative manner. Sharing works in progress helps to inspire others, make your work better, and forces people to be more creative to either stick out from the crowd or seperate themselves from others. Also it's boring not seeing anything at all for a month.

Got a good idea, but don't have the skill to make it look "pretty" in drawing form? You won't be judged for that lack. Someone with 3D StudioMax won't necessarily beat someone who did a drawing in a napkin with a crayon if their idea was shit.

Of course not, but artistic skill is sort of required for accurately translating your vision to a viewable result.

I personally agree with the Photoshop game's format of keeping everything under wraps, especially considering what this game is accomplishing. Posting your WIP, in my opinion, reduces creativity because it may subconsciously cause participants to set your work as a benchmark and base their entry on some aspects of yours. We're trying to get a variety of designs. You may disagree with this, and that is fine. There is no reason to harshly criticise. As I said, this is a trial run and we can tweak the rules with suggestions. If others feel that a more translucent contest would be better, than so it shall be.

I'm half-way decent at sketching my ideas, brilliant at 3d modeling in Inventor.

I'm definitely interested, even if my designs are hardly ever any definite make; I like to make designs up from top to bottom without any heritage or definite cues. Guess you can call it the Ridge Racer school of car design.

So, it's definitely a challenge for me.
