mad max inspired photochopping

Just some work I did on a photoshopping forum. It was a contest to modify a picture of an audi A3, and i tried replicating the menacing style of the 'marauders Landau' from RW. Sorry for putting Max in it as it's really not a good guy car, but most of the teens on that forum wouldn't get it if Mel isn't involved :P
the car was made from scratch almost deleting every part of the original audi, and I tried to use as many factory parts as possible to make it look like it was scavenged from other cars, so there's a mercedes grille, mitsubishi evo front bumper,dodge headlights , and some homemade parts,and added some red XA inspiration in it too also, the turbo set up has gotten more modern filters as this is a beoynd 2000 version of a mad max car . Hope you like it ;)

Zykotec,
That is an incredible picture.
You have done an excellent job on it.
Your lighting perspectives are spot on and I love the advertising blurb at the bottom.

You certainly have the skills.
Do you do this as a profession?

Just a hobby , and as I don't really get on well with computers, it'll stay that way too ;) I prefer pen on paper and real cars to be honest. But thanks for the compliments.

Im still admiring it.
The battle damage on the panels, the replacement door on the driver side, the bolted on airdam in a different colour. There are so many additions to this piece.
It all adds to the ambience of the picture. Each part of the car tells a story rather than it just being a vehicle.
Kudos zykotec.
May may dislike computers, but it looks like computers love you.

Agreed. Nice take on a modern MM2 interpretation! I also love the square tube rear bumper, as well as the mix-matched front Cragar rims and rear trailer type white spoke rims (with different lug patterns to boot). Really gives it the homebuilt (or wasteland built) quality! 8-)
