Well all this is my first attempt to chopping, I hope I didn't break any laws or anything else. 2b2 I used your logo you came up with and hope you don't mind. I hope you all let me know how I did.

I need to work a lot on the chopping but I thought it was not bad for a first attempt.

speaking just for myself
it started way back even before highschool - drawing cars during boring classes
or folding pix in car mags to try and modify them
then
puters happened and everything went horribly horribly out of control
>8-D
we were driven to chop - it wasn't something we consciously chose...
first just little things like turning an innocent sedan into a fastback
http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/mz3fb.jpg < earliest chop still online
sticking to full front or side shots cuz they're easiest
then
discovering you can change the Carz COLORZ!!!
(oh yeah, you start pluralizing with Z's - beautiful ZZZZZZzZzZzZzZzZzzz's)
then
getting into 3quarter shots and airbrushing...
doesn't take long before you're mainlining your own designs from stratch
& ignoring the real world (ie changing backgrounds);
forgetting to eat or even :sob: change channels on the tv...
beware!
BEWARE!!
