Forsaken by jonsibal Forsaken by jonsibal
This is for all the car guys out there who at one point in their life had a "Project Car". Bruised and bloody knuckles from installing header bolts in impossible tight spaces, getting grease in your forehead and rust in your hair.. oh it was all worth it. The garage was your sanctuary. Your neighbors hated you for testing your exhaust in the middle of the night because you just have to hear the car idle and rev before you hit the sack.

Then life happened. Suddenly, you find yourself with other more urgent priorities and the thrill of the build starts to fade away. You glance at it once in a while only to see how much rust you need to grind off. Months and years go by, forgotten and forsaken, rotting under the car cover.

And now, you have a new car - new project and a new build which demanded the space of your old project car in the garage. Shot a picture before you sold it. And many years later, only thing that remains is that tattered picture of that forsaken project car.

--------------------------------------------

I did this with Photoshop CS using this car as my base image. [link]
I "aged" the car quite a bit using a combination of rust textures and different photoshop brushes.

Had a 69 Red Kharmenghia that was bought for my boys to restore. It was exciting at first... then it sat, and sat, and sat. Finally found a buyer that restored it, and loved it. I could never get over how it always smelled like the 60's. Kind of a mix of oil,hippie candles and old...cute little car...
