In a remote region of a distant star system, the crowds gather for the annual galactic tournament. Hundreds of civilizations have sent their best racers, ready to compete. With no rules aside from crossing the finish line, the ships combine amazing speed with ruthless weaponry.
This month's theme: Hover Racer

my work in progress, a bunch of hours in so far, still need to weaponize
the front, thinking of mounting a chain gun in there, not sure if i should change the cockpit to more
or a motorcycle style rider?
I saw in the rules thread that you can use some 3D elements in the 2D challenges, but that response dates all the way back to 2006. Just to be clear, can I design and build my ship in 3D as a base to paint over for my final image? Or is the 2D challenge just about creating and completing a image only in 2D? I would hate to submit a piece that isn't allowed to be used in this challenge. Thanks for the help!
This is almost exactly what my friend and I did for our 3d animation finals back when we finished school. Ours was a bit more like the video game F-Zero, lots of hovercars racing, but no weapons. I think I can drag out a few files and update them for this contest Sounds like a blast!
