    2009 Chevrolet Impala ("RCE")

    This was going to be Project Steel, but I'm really not wild about any part of this sketch. Blame it on the odd angle I drew it at and the technique I used. Like the first Impala I posted, it suffers from proportion problems.



    There it is. Not too great.

    Back to the drawing board and back to drawing the way I have, I guess.

    It's a cool front end, but something happens as it rises up the middle.

    there are 3 things wrong with this:

    1. your ellipses are off, the rear one should be narrower, and bring it forward a tad bit.

    2. the lower mid section shouldnt rise like that IMO, make it parallel to the "shadow line" below it.

    3. stretch the greenhouse further back, so the rear end doesnt look like a pickup truck, and make the rear part of the green house more streamlined with the rest of the car.

    otherwise, its a cool design, i really like the front end treatment, very aggressive, and i absolutely love that grill! BTW, are you left handed?

    I actually like the design a lot, but maybe the perspective can be better.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Nope. Actually I can use both hands, although my right one is more frequently used.

    dude it looks cool, a little bit of sonata in there, but just a little. but i like the design language very...chevy ss concept. exagerate the foglamps a little more for a bolder effect and make the wheels both proportional to the body. the front looks noticebly bigger (unless thats what you're goin for? and no spoiler?)

    The front end does look good. Grill fits nicely for a Chevy, though the back makes me think of the Charger.

    Looks like it has 18" wheels in front and 14" wheels in back.

    Front looks good...like you spent a lot of time thinking about it. The perspective as you move towards the back needs some work.

    I like it! The roof allows for ease of entry. The front end is dynamite! Looks like a car for 2009.
