Fairing design contest (ENTRY ARE CLOSED)

GO VOTE HERE

https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=49331



The Contest: Race fairing paint scheme contest

I just received my race fairings from e-fairing. See pics below.













I have a few ideas for a paint scheme, but I thought it would be a great idea for a contest to let you guys come up with a paint scheme....I might be crazy enough to do it ...or at least incorporate parts of it in my design.

The Rules:

1) Use what you want to as a base for the paint scheme

• Photoshop
• hand drawing/coloring
• clay model
• paper model
• text/pictures*

*for the photoshop and artistic challenged, you can post pictures of an existing design but, you will have to describe the combination you would do or modification you would do to it (example, the wheels from pic 1, the lower from pic 2, the color from pic 3, the graphics from pic 4, etc. If you want, ask a photoshop guru to put it together for you...)

2) You can post more than one design.

3) Post your design to this thread by December 14th at midnight EST, (GMT -5).

4) The final five will be chosen by me based on originality and integration of design. (Think RACETEAM).

5) The winning design will be chosen from the final five by a member driven poll. Voting ends December 21st at midnight EST, (GMT -5).

The Prizes:

First prize: ZX-10R.net T-shirt
Second prize: ZX-10R.net hat
Third prize: Zx-10R.net wrist band
Participation prize: REP from me (and who knows maybe others) for every one posting a valid entry (serious design only).

I just want to make this clear...I will not commit myself to do the winning design, simply because:

First, I will do the painting myself. I not a professional painter, nor will I have the professional equipment to do a complex design (pinstripes, metal flakes, candy paint, etc).

Secondly,
I don’t want my painting limitations to be a factor in your design. Be creative and let your imagination go!

So may the best design win!

Contest begins with the posting of this thread.

I just might try my hand at this - I just need to find a black & white photo of an 06-07. Gonna do it the old fashioned way since I'm terrible with photoshop.

You know what...if you have access to carbon paper, just take a good pic out of a Kawasaki brochure or magazine, then trace the outline onto a blank sheet of paper...borow your son, nefew (even your own, I won't tell) box of crayola scan the design and voila!...prehistoric photoshop!

Just like Alien10 did...feel free to annouce your going to try it (that will make the suspence more bearable for me)

And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the AMERICAN PEOPLE" TR
