PS If the 'semi-finalists' were chosen by Deviantart employees I hope Lexus bothers to view the entrants also - it's be a great weakness if they didn't.

I agree with the dissatisfaction I mostly read here - yes, firstly because none of my designs were picked, and also with a number of designs I think 'You must be joking?!' because I don't think they support the Lexus brand whatsoever.

I notice that a lot of people say that the 'winning' designs broke submission rules - well if that's the case the situation sucks even more!

..soooo what you guys were REALLY looking for is a different paint job and new set of wheels? Well then. I really shouldn't have wasted my time trying to alter the exterior of the car instead of just the paint like everyone else.. -_- Couldn't have made that a little clear in the description? Something like "Just paint it a pretty color and put new rims on it; whoever does the best job wins!"

And here I thought we were supposed to be designing a car. :ARRRGH:

Lexus didn't pick the semi-finals. I don't know if they have even looked at the cars yet but a lot of these have violations and need to be re-picked.

Sadly, these were all judged by deviantART employees and not by car professionals, so most of them cannot be completed within 10 weeks, but they wouldn't know because they are artists, not car people.  :-/ But what upsets me is I saw many designs that actually followed the rules AND actually did something amazing to the vehicle, but none of those were chosen, instead most of the ones chosen did violate the rules and/or didn't do anything all that great to the car.  Most, not all.

Anyone know how long judging by Lexus is slated to go? Couldn't find it in the rules. Only the bit about accepting within 5 days if you win.

According to the timeline on Lexus's website, the judging was supposed to end yesterday, on the 16th. I guess it's still going on right now.

In the contest rules it stated that it was supposed to end on the 13th.  Probably still going, because they are trying to figure out what to do since they chose so many that violate the rules.  :-/

I didn't even think to look on Lexus's website! Thank you.

I know the rules said they wouldn't announce the winners until the 1st place had been gotten a hold of and accepted. Maybe that is why? Or they could still be judging too.

...well, at least we all tried, right? I mean, I really don't agree with these results at all really, but thats just my opinion. Actually to be honestly, I'm royally pissed. But I could either be an annoying comment nobody wants to read because of stupid ranting, or with the semi-finalists the best of luck, and be apart of a contest that actually made my jaw drop at some designs some people brought out to the table. Awesome passion, from everyoneNod

Given the insane number of violations in the semi-finals, maybe several "violators" were selected as semi-finalists so an already-chosen artist could be easily selected to win among the group? Just saying...seems a little fishy.

I'm pretty sure that the semis were chosen with the 1 second test: 1) Look at the artwork for one second. 2) Then judge it.
Gives no room for logic, which has to go into engineering cars.

Oh and by the way, most professionals don't look closely. They take... get this... one full entire second to judge pictures. One of the judges later on in the comments confirms this (which I've suspected for a few years now).

Lexus should have hired real artists to judge this competition.  I'm not a great artist by any means or extremely great at photoshop, but honestly there were a lot of really good works of art here that didn't even get nominated.  It was a terribly lazy selection job, especially when so many of that finalists only changed the rims or the color of the car.  If you read some of the comments, some of them even admit that they did a last minute lazy job. I hope this is not how Lexus decides if a car is good enough to be put out on the market.  Good luck to the "Lexus is Zero" prototype car. That person really put a lot of time and effort into their project.

I hope I didn't offend you or anyone else, that was not what I was trying to do.  My point is that deviantART staff selected the semi-finalists.  Staff that is probably swamped judging every single one of the contests (or at least a lot of them), and had to do a rush job.  I just feel that Lexus should have had their own expert judges to do this part. They are a successful company that puts out good work so I would expect no less from them. Secondly, even though some of the comments have been hidden or deleted at this point, yesterday I read comments from three of the semi-finalists that actually admitted to not doing much to the original pictures, in fact one of them said he just changed the wheels to make the car look lower.  Finally, there were rules set up for the contest that were actually broken quite a bit.  So many of the semi-finalists changed the wheels/rims but used stock pictures from third parties. I'm just stating that the selection process was poorly executed especially since rules were broken and they didn't catch it, but more power to the artists, they just submitted their art and took a chance. Once again, I hope someone that actually worked hard wins, but good luck to all.

I sincerely agree with you djn777. Although there were rules broken, many of these designs and others, were very well done. Granted there the few that didn't do a whole of work, but if they win, more power to'em. My entries i emplaced were all hand-drawn, however after seeing some of the hand-drawn entries, I agreed with myself that mine would never compare. Nonetheless, Good luck to the finalists and grand prize winner!

Not trying to be mean, but a few of those entries are against the rules. It stated no physical rendering to the body shape in any way. And had to be possible to actually produce in 10 weeks. I don't see how keeping a car completely white shows creativity... it's not fair to people who actually designed the car.
