I haven't posted in a very long time, sorry about that. But I figure this might be nice. I put together a little tribute wallpaper to the Police Organization the CZ 75 P-01 was made for, the Czech National Police. I thought you P-01 fans would like it.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys! I love my CZ. I was thinking about making a few different wallpapers to make a series. The RAMI, 75B, 97. Let me know what you guys think I should do.

Again, great job.

How much would you charge to do a personalized one for me. I'm thinking of one representing my deployment to Iraq?

I can provide pics for a sort of collage or something...

Zan
May 22, 2008, 10:04 PM
Thanks again! How much for a custom rendered scene? Depends on what weapon, if any and what you'd like in it. An Iraq deployment calage would be sweet if they told a good story. Get back to me on that and give me some weapons you'd like, I'll give you an idea of what it would be.

I've begun work on the 75B/SA desktop rendered scene. I work all weekend on other projects so I'll try and get as much done as I can. I expect it sometime next week. I've also been asked about doing custom (personal) scene renders like the one I've posted. I can do them at a reasonable price. Just PM me with your proposed project idea if your interested and I'll get back to you with what I can do and pricing. I do desktop rendering only, I do not do high resolution prints. (The desktop renders do print well at about large postcard size)

Zan, not knowing your history, this could be a career move for you. :cool:

I was trying not to make it like that, I swear! Looks that way though.:)

Ooops, maybe I'm being dense ... do the Czech police actually have such a contract knife (I guess that's what Thumper recognizes as a Busse)? I'm guessing no, since then it would probably have "CZECH POLICE" written on in it in Czech....

In any case ... nice portrait. If you haven't posted it on the Czforum (http://czechpistols82792.yuku.com/directory) ... bet they'd like it!

Zan

Do the Czech police actually have such a contract knife? It's a Busse and yeah, the blade says "Czech Policie" on it, written in Czech. It's a photoshop scene render. I try to be as authentic as possible.

Cannot wait to see the new one CZ75B/SA...

Props to you...and your new found career/hobby!!!!!

Very nice 'shop work. I love the tag's silver work, it's very convincing, as is the work on the bullets. Couple tiny notes, from one Adobe Suite user to another.

*A quick distort or warp on the woodgrain layer will give you a much more convincing pattern.

*In general I like to take my photos of objects (like the gun and the cuffs) all from the same angle that I'm going to be using them in the finished piece. It saves alot of time trying to get a convincing shadow and a smooth transition to the background without overdoing the burn tool. It's a little noticeable where you've used it on the cuffs

Thanks for the tips. The wood was suppose to give that fake wood, laminated feed to it. I've done some good grains and agree, they can't be all the same direction. Ever done any knots? I too no difital shots had no stock images to work with, I had use use what I could find. Ya, the cuffs are abit off angle.

I think I may do a Glock series after this last one. More than likely the RAMI.

I just found a new background at the CZ Forum with a 75B and a 75B SA on it. Is this your work Zan?

P-01's deserve the bump. Heard they may go .45?

January 17, 2009, 09:35 PM
not sure how they would, unless they cut down the CZ97 frame and called it a P-09 or something, because of the "taller" 45 acp round.

I bought a new P-01 for $450, and the gun outshoots me. I can shoot it so accurately it amazes me. Plus, its in 9mm, so the bullets are cheap, which is a +. It's the best pistol i've shot so far. I haven't been exposed to Sigs or nice 1911's yet.

Can you carry the P-01 cocked and locked?

Matrix187
January 18, 2009, 11:48 AM
You can, but it wouldn't be too safe :uhoh: Its meanted to be carried half cocked on DA mode, then its SA. DA/SA

Zan
January 18, 2009, 01:24 PM
@ Matrix187: I shoot both quite abit. You can't go wrong with a CZ or a Sig. Both are comfortable, have smooth action and clean well. Sigs' tend to be more expensive I believe, but you can't put a price on cc or duty carry.
