Thanks MissModena,

it's not the prettiest car on here, but I keep it clean.

I really need a font license plate delete mod, and the 5th pic is 'shopped to make the grille wider, which doesn't look as good as I thought. The big Semi truck, is used when the football team travels on away games. When I put on my wheels on, I will go by the lake and take some pics there.

I just got out of two finals so pardon my mistake.

I live close to lake thunderbird. It's nice for a landlocked state like Oklahoma. I wish we had Cali's landscape.


Also the university has some really nice spots that will be mostly empty after this weekend.

Passed my teen years here. I live here so I don't get to go anywhere. I got some family in New York, but I'm staying put this summer as I'm assisting in research here at the U. Also taking a P-chem class with my fav. professor.

Exactly why you have to mod the sh*t out of it. Or not.

Started with a simple blanking process (removal of background), added a gradient, duplicate layer on the vehicle layer, flip it, drop the transparency, angle it a bit, etc.

Pretty solid job imo. Just need to colour match it a bit so it doesn't stand out so much from the background.

Yesssah! That's pretty much on the money. I'm trying to see what bkgd would go well with a black car. More to come for sure.

You could turn that into a solid background with a bit of brushwork.
