CONTEST for PHOTOSHOP for my PAINT JOB!!

OK, boys and girls; here is a challenge for those of you that are both artistic and computer literate

I'm completing the new color scheme for my motorhome, and the front of it might need something besides a blank canvas. My artistic skills being what they are (minimal), I'd really like to see what you have in your artistic brains.

Colors are white background, then black and red. Photos of the home give you an idea of what we want to add to.

Please post your Photoshop (or other) graphics on this thread so we can all admire your work.

If I choose one of the designs, I'll donate $25 in the artist's name to the Boys and Girls Club. Winning artist also becomes iRV2's "Artist Emeritus"....complete with all bragging rights

P.S. Thanks in advance to those that make the effort!!

It would help a lot to photograph RV directly from the side, back, and front, without shrubs, shadows, and fence in the way. (like the front photo) Take it out to a parking lot, take clear, brightly lit photos, and see what people can do.

Thanks, Bob. In my un-artistic mind, I added photos of sides in order to give an idea of the type of graphics that are on the coach. The front shot would be the one that would be used for Photoshopping....and the "VALENCIA" logo is no longer there, although it will be replaced with another logo.

I'm a week or two away from finishing what I'm doing to the coach, and will be happy to take more photos as you suggest if I haven't done something already.
Today the front cap got painted white, so we're ready to start thinking about things.

I like it the way it is with the "VALENCIA" on it nothing else.

I took the stripes off the front hood(s) on my 84 2 weeks ago to re-do them and the more I look at it with just the Pace Arrow I'm thinking of just painting it in original color and leaving it with just Pace Arrow on it.
I don't have the space to do these to mine but how about a nice set of Ghost Flames.
You have some time I get from your Post. Keep looking @ her the way she is and you might just agree
JMO and I am one "computer literate",

That horizontal graphic that's currently a light (faded) bronze has been sanded and the front cap painted 3 coats of bright white. I think I'll paint that graphic red, and place the Mandalay decal above it.

I can always add, but for now maybe just leaving well enough alone is the key.
Thanks for the input.
