Dieselpunk Rocket Bike. Dieselpunk is an art style sort of like Steampunk--only more modern--less Victorian. Vehicle was created from scratch. SOURCES Member reactions:
Ah...I am lost in this world of misery of your si-fi work
Reminds me of Total Recall with Schwarzy.
Many well placed sources, very well done.
Apparently I love diesel punk because I sure love this. I thought for a moment this was possibly Funkwood. Big compliment. And then I thought this is probably LC doing a funkwood. You are pretty much the only chopper I know that can pull that off . Maybe KIR could back in the day but he seems to be firmly AWOL. Big wood congrats, LC. Tough match, huh.. Oh, by the way, giant kudos on the scooter build.... That is primo work
Congratulations, LunaC. Indeed, A Very Nice Bike. The Retro Rider ain't bad either.
.Congrats LunaC. Great stuff and thanks for showing sources
Good one. Makes me wanna read some sci-fi stories again. Congrats on the wood.
Fabulous illusion with glare of lights all round creates a feel something important project going on Putin wants his rocket to go beyond moon Great job and good caricature on him
I think the front is brilliant. I don't understand the ship or water or background, except the color matches. I wish the moon was blue.
Master job done Smart work done with the lights
Fantastic chop . Rocket hologram is a clever touch.
Fantastic work with lights and shadows here. I wish Putin was more recognizable here. Also the ship in the background would probably fit better if it was a modern military ship. Still a great chop though.
Congratz once Again...just keep'em coming.
Great chop all around, I agree with Newsey. In the case of Putin, maybe less is more. I don't know, I don't really chop him much. Doc probably has a better angle on this guy. Your layering is awesome, not too much, not too little. Bronze congrats young master...
Congrats Elegary... again, the lighting looks fantastic.
This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Rocket science may not be for everybody but some geeks do manage to build their own rockets. It takes quite a bit of technical knowledge, effort, and money to build a real rocket that will fly as high as 3 miles into the atmosphere. Last but not least, strict safety measures must be taken upon each rocket launch.
Photoshop this rocket launch photo any way you wish. Some examples are - re-design the rocket, show where it may be headed to, feature some new "rocket scientists" next to it. (Image credit: Steve Jurvetson)
North Korea's keenly watched rocket launch has failed, Pyongyang has confirmed. North Korea says the aim of the launch was to put a satellite into orbit - a move marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of national founder Kim Il-sung. But the US and other nations say the launch constituted a disguised test of long-range missile technology banned under UN resolutions. The failure of this launch is embarrassing for the North Korean regime. It had been billed as a sign of the North's technical achievement. The 100ft (30m) rocket named "Unha-3" exploded into some 20 pieces and fell into the sea, after flying for just over a minute.
Since the design of "Unha-3" is a top secret, we can only guess what caused the rocket failure - from bad engineering design to clumsy assembling, to bad fuel or poor choice of materials. Today you are going be a Korean rocket scientist, and suggest the alternative designs of "Unha-3" that may be rejected by North Korea for any reasons (e.g. think of some alternative materials or obvious engineering flaws).
North Korea will be launching satellite rocket into space in early April - at least that's the official version. Intelligence sources say that this may be a cover-up for launching of a long-range missile capable of reaching Alaska. Long range missiles and satellite rockets use a very similar technology, so there's a high chance that even a true satellite rocket launch by North Korea will serve as a test for a long range missile.
The country is barred from ballistic activity as per resolution of a U.N. Security Council.
Hillary Clinton warned North Korea not to launch "anything".
For this contest you need to become a rocket scientist and construct rockets from other objects (fruits, vegetables, household items, etc.). You can also include existing rockets or missiles into your chops one way or another. E.g. find civil uses for rockets (mini versions are OK too), give rocket theme to movies and paintings, etc.
