Default Photoshop/Digital Art thread

Oh yeah, it's me with the photoshop stuff again.

Here's my idea of an accord that's not only powerful and fun to drive, but also very useful when tackling city traffic.

The original pic.


My version......



I'd love to own a car like that.

Regards...

Hey Shan2nu, I love the stuff that you can do with PS, but personally I like the orignal one...even though I understand where you are coming from, i really dont think accord coupe is really that bad to handle in a place like india..may be you can somehow shorten it keeping its trunk and stuff, but making it into a hachback is somewhat difficult to digest, I dont know, again thats my opinion, but whatever u say man..ur skills with PS are awesome..

keep them coming..

cheers

Hey C4S, that's the kind of feedback i was expecting. I too like the original design but you know i've heard a few decide not to go in for the Accord just bcoz it's too big for their garage or that the lane leading to their house is too narrow.

This is just a substitute for people who feel the Accord is too big. But yeah the original design rules man, just love the Coupe.

But if Honda price it perfectly, i don't see why it shouldn't sell.

Imagine a small car that looks like an Accord, has an accord engine, accord interiors, safety and comforts for the price, equal to or, cheaper than the Civic.

I knw these looks are hard to digest but hey, didn't the Accord get the same treatment when it was launched? I, and many here just hated the rear design of the car, but now it just doesn't matter.

I'd love to own an accord but there are places where i wouldn't like to take my car. But with this, i can enjoy being in an accord without having to worry about size.

Regards...

many of the owners are gonna grumble about the FE of the hatch like in the case of the sweet palio 1.6 GTX

Well the FE thing is a good point but i'm sure Honda will figure that out.

The Accord coupe is one of the best sellers in the american market, i think it looks best in its orignal form. What u need buddy is a C-class coupe which looks very similar to the alterations u have made to this pic only diff being it has the mercedes touch to it.

No, no. you ain't getting my point. I'm not saying that this car should replace the Accord.

Just keep this as an option for those who might want to buy a small car that looks and feels like an Accord from the inside.

It's like this.....

The Indigo has the Indica.
The Siena has the Palio
The Corsa has the Sail.

They all look different from the outside, but once you're in you wont know which is which.

An Accord cheaper than a civic? Guess we should call it 'Afford'.

Hey Shan2nu, why don't start making the cars big instead of chopping them all the time. What happen to your Wagon R project?
