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
puters happened and everything went horribly horribly out of control
we were driven to chop - it wasn't something we consciously chose...
first just little things like turning an innocent sedan into a fastback < earliest chop still online
sticking to full front or side shots cuz they're easiest
discovering you can change the Carz COLORZ!!!
(oh yeah, you start pluralizing with Z's - beautiful ZZZZZZzZzZzZzZzZzzz's)
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...
