    2011 Saab 9-3 (Sneak Peak and It's a Computer Model)

    This is my first try doing a car as a computer model. Here is just a sneak peak for now and hopefully I'll get it the rest of it done before the end of the contest. If not I'll show the finished product in the Reader's talent forum.

    The reason cars exist is that so GM cars and Bugattis exist.

    OMG, you copied my idea of showing teasers! (for serious, did you?)

    When's the final model get shown?
    I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one.

    Yes and no. No because I had really no intent on doing a computer model for this contest, because I was playing around with a free program and I tried to push my limits to try to copy one of my old Saab drawings. When I was trying to see what the different things I could do to imatate the headlights I came up with something pretty neat. I can't help myself to post nothing when something pretty awesome comes up. So I posted the teaser. and Yes, because your teaser was in my head and it helped me come up with it.

    I honestly don't really know. This is more of a wild card that it'll either work or not. I'm sure that people will want to know what kind of free program I'm using and it's Google Sketchup. Some other Google Sketchups have more advanced stuff but cost money and just to give you a feel for the program here is just a youtube video for a program that you have to pay money to get.



    If that didn't work, here is a link

    Heh, I was wondering if that was sketchup when I first saw it! It looks interesting, I can't wait to see how the whole thing looks... Getting rounded surfaces in sketchup isn't the easiest thing on earth...

    I'm not a fan of computer drawn cars. I prefer it done on paper then scanned or photochops.
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!
