It's been a while since the last one, but it seem slike I say that every time we run a StrataCafe challenge =)

With all the talk about gasoline prices and hybrid vehicles, the goal this time is to create a vehicle that runs on an ecologically friendly fuel source. Become the architect of the next revolution in human propulsion, or simply point out how silly a device powered by Methane might be, it's your call.


Prizes
First Place
A 1 TB Maxtor One-Touch external hard drive and the Art & Science v.2 DVD bundle.
Second Place
The Art & Science v.2 DVD bundle.
Third Place
Your choice of Disk 1 or 2 from the Art & Science of Strata 3D v.2.

Final submissions should be sent to me, Michael (michael@stratacafe.com) with an indication in the subject line that it's a final entry for the challenge.

The 3D rendering in this challenge must be completed entirely in a Strata Product (any version of Strata 3D or Design 3D[in]). Modeling can be done in Strata 3D, or another app and imported into Strata 3D for rendering. If you don't own any version of Strata 3D, you can can download a 30-day, fully functioning demo of Strata 3D CX 5.5 here!

Photoshop, Illustrator, or other image editors or page layout programs may be used for post-processing, texture creation or page layout.

Any amount of post work may be done in Photoshop or other image editors, but try to avoid excessively "hand painting" the image.
