Made entirely from source image. A 1955 "Oval Window" VW Bug.... made from a bug. (266 days ago)
A very nice car but you can not go inside because there is no handle at the door ... a question in passing, while you have respected the general shapes of the car, why did you you change the shape of the windshield and the roof?
Haha good point. I did forget the door handle.
Interesting question. I made it perfect at one point. I decided it really looked like I just copied the VW, so I went back and made it worse to make it look like I just didn't copy the bug. This is a rougher version of the perfect looking one I was working on. Do you think this shape is better?
First time I thought something came out too good, and had to go back and mess it up.
Honestly, I prefer the good looking one but this is only my opinion
Thx Denlig. I went ahead and changed it. I like this one too.
It was so fun to make. I love old air cooled VW's. I had a 1963 very very very rare VW Notchback - Rally Edition from Germany. I stripped it down to the floorpan, welded in a new floor pan, reworked and beefed the front end suspension, new gaskets for the fenders, built a custom motor with oversized pistons/cylinders (had to bore the block), cam, dual carbs, and spent 60 hours porting and polishing the heads. New window gaskets, all the lights, converted it from 6 to 12 volts and a whole lot of other things.
The car was in primer and before I painted it I took it for a test drive to the beach at night. Six months of hard labor was coming to fruition. So me and a bunch of people are hanging out at the beach checking out my new car when all of the sudden this drunk guy comes barreling down the coast highway and starts losing control of his car. BAM!!!!!! The #@$^$%#@##'r crashed right into my Notchback!! Totaled my new car. I was so much in shock I didn't even get mad.
So, after the insurance claim I found a 1965 Notchback and rebuilt it... End of story.
That was a terrible thing to happen. I hope the insurance paid well. At least you found another one to rebuild.
My very first car was a second hand VW. Can't remember the year model.
I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT....was yours. Purrrrrrfect to my eyes.
CONGRATULATIONS well done and well deserved!
I liked making this one. It looks like I just copied the ladybug, but bending the parts around, doing the lighting, shading, brushing, and stuff was still challenging. The roof is a little flat, but the other parts are kinda realistically shaped.
I showed this one to my dad and he thought I only took the ladybug parts and overlayed them for color on top of the bug.
Oh, and mahalo.
Another member on this site gave me pointers like brushing out little scars on a face...small things that make the WORLD OF DIFFERENCE. Your work brings that point home to me.

Somewhere far from the dimension known to man, a lone mutant insect took a path to discover greatness.... :)
Everything is from the source. Please check SBS. (3 years and 117 days ago)
Incredibly fun work (SBS is wonderful). You might want to save yourself some headache by using some altered parts of the source (the little round orbs on the top of the hour glass would make little planets quite nicely, just alternating the hue for interest.)
I only say this because some voters get a little cranky when they can't see the source directly. The whole Chopped Beyond Recognition crap. Personally I can see clearly how the source was used (thanks to the SBS)but adding defined items from the source always puts a stamp on some of the cranky. Good luck author Really is a fun image, the grid work reminds me of a screen saver I had in the late 80's
Well noted... Thank you 80's....
Everything is created in photoshop, please have a look at the sbs. (3 years and 187 days ago)
Well smack my bottom and call me Christmas... WOOOO HOOOOO! The HI RES is outrageous! LOVE THE BOLTS!!!!
Thanks a million, my friend
Wow!! Beautifully done!! Good luck to you!
Beautiful masterpiece of yours again. I appreciate the time it took for you to create this image. It is not a copy and paste thing, you left part of your brains scrambled on your layers, especial effects and colors. This is how to create art. Thanks for giving me inspiration.... Good job!!!
Beautiful! Well done.
A lovely take on the steampunk theme!
Brilliant! well done...
Congrats baby doll, great job
Congratulations my friend...
Thanks to all for the nice comments!
Beautiful work, Cornelia.

Maybe a giant mosquito would be more dangerous, but it's a good image.
Good work, I like the sense of movement....
A fantastic image Blur effects are very realistic and eye catching. IMO the rider should be smaller so that it fits and balance the weight on the dragonfly Hope you will get enough time for the edits. Good luck
Congrats 1, 2 & 3 Nasir

nice idea -- edges of the girl could do with a bit of blurring and some cleanup -- also the girls image is quite a bit brighter than the bug
Glad you finally found a usable image, author! Good luck!
me too ^^ tx,and sorry for the trouble!
