      My vote goes to Jon Sibal.

      Good thing this wasn't a bodykit contest jk.

      The wheels look good but I really like Jon's ground effects and splitter! Nice work!

    4. 06-25-2007 05:19 PM #4
      Sibal's design is really sweet. The presentation is excellent. Is the the same Jonathan Sibal that does color work for a ton of Marvel Comics....tomb raider etc??

      Go Jon Sibal!

      The presentation, attention to detail, and 'simple technical form' of Jon Sibal's entry is great. That gets my vote.

      So hard to choose all three designs are excellent! Great Job Guys!

    19. 06-25-2007 06:46 PM #19
      Here is my design that didn't make in top 3

      My vote goes to the last one with the excellent wheel design.

      #1 is the best IMHO.

      it kinda reminds me of that one MK IV wheel a little bit, the one that came on the Tamiya MK IV RC car, but with a deep dish.

      plus the wheel is cool

      the one on the yellow car looks too much like an existing Iforged wheel, and the grey car you cant see the wheel very clearly.

      I have to agree on #1, but I am sure a lot of it was in the presentation of the sketch...IMO he focussed on the wheel, whereas #2 and 3 focussed on the car.

      my vote goes to #1 for the excellent, practical design and understated presentation.

    24. 06-25-2007 08:12 PM #24
      i wish i had skillz like any of them do but
      i vote car #1

    25. 06-25-2007 08:32 PM #25
      I voted for #1 because they wheels look excellent. #2 looks like something Privat already makes and #3, you can't really see the wheel design, although it is a wicked cool sketch.

      i thourght this was a wheel design contest in the third pic you can barely see the wheels. not to mention the car looks like a transformer.

      #2 isnt bad but it looks just like what everybody else sells

      and besides the NFS underground bodykit #1 has a nice set of wheels and you can actually see the design


    34. 06-26-2007 12:04 AM #34
      my question still stands...is this the same jon sibal who does color work/lettering for Marvel comics? If so, no wonder it's freakin phenominal. P-shop skills are really sick.

      you know if the wheels on your tank were actually made into a wheel for a car... i dont think they would look to bad... with some slight alterations around the lug nute area... i think it could be done

      im torn between the first car and the last... both are good IMHO...
