    Challenge to those with graphics talent -USMG Racer

    Toyota Motorsports is running a contest where you can design a wrap for one of their Sprint Cup cars. You can use your own graphics, or use default ones. If you win, you get some pretty kick-ass prizes.

    The challenge to you, should you decide to accept it: Create the ultimate USMG design and enter the contest. Do you have what it takes to put the USMG name on the track? Prove it!

    The challenge has been laid down. If you think you've got what it takes, enter today and do the USMG team proud.

    Indecision may or may not be my problem.

    I think those of you who are thinking of doing this should collaborate to create the best possible USMG design.

    Re: Challenge to those with graphics talent -USMG Racer

    I don't think we have a shot in hell to win this contest. Look at this and go to the most voted, the top car has 334,645 votes!!! The second car is called "GAY CAR" with 135,510 votes. I think this contest started along time ago with that many votes. The first page of cars are completely ridiculous and look so stupid!! "Rainbows & Kisses, I Love Mommy, Get at my Rainbow, Rainbow Kittens" Here are a couple from the top voted page come on people :twisted: !!!!!!!!!

    Re: Challenge to those with graphics talent -USMG Racer

    wtf kind of ghetto ass competition is this? "Anon is Legion?" Seriously, what in the hell does that even mean? Is one of the stipulations for this competition that you had to ride the short bus and have an IQ of -5? The Gay Car? Gay people are ashamed of that train wreck design. Seriously, Elton John is insulted. And Safety Bear? Seriously, retarded people shouldn't smoke crack.

    Re: Challenge to those with graphics talent -USMG Racer

    lol this reminds me of the Modnation Racers beta; all the creations that were first uploaded had tons of views, downloads, and votes but they were mostly all garbage, people just say them first and went with it, adding more to the popularity and continually bringing lame creations to the top. Ones that people spent some real time on got pushed to the bottom and never saw the light of day underneath these colossal retardations

    Gaming is staying up 'til 3am to earn a trophy that isn't real.......BUT IS

    Re: Challenge to those with graphics talent -USMG Racer

    Your design has been denied entry into the Sponsafier Contest



    Unfortunately, something is holding up the approval process for U.S.MILITARY GAMERS.

    Now donít fret. This doesnít mean you canít get into the competition. It just means you need to go back and clean up your design a little bit. That means making sure that there are no privately owned images, or content that could be deemed inappropriate or offensive to our audience. Please feel free to review the rules section of the contest here.

    Good Luck, and thanks for participating.
    Here is what I received back from those guys about my car. The only thing I thought that would of been questionable was the Military seals. So not sure why it got kicked back. Let me draw you a mental picture since it won't let me show you my car.

    Front bumper = MARPAT Digital Camo
    Hood = General G bot (My creation) and usmilitarygamers
    Side = Header Logo with Military seals (like the one on the top of the page this might be the kicker?)
    Roof = American Flag
    Trunk = My Marine drawing from my shirt with my quote (My creation)
    Back bumper = Army Digital Camo
    Spoiler = usmilitarygamers.com

    Maybe official government seals are offensive to retarded crack heads?

    Re: Challenge to those with graphics talent -USMG Racer

    Well I have sent one in also. I am waiting to see if that gets denied (Im sure it will). The ones that they accept look like shit and took the people no time of thought to do. Here is another one that I did up which is kind of the same as the one I sent in. If mine gets denied...oh well at least we have have a good looking car on here.
