    Cadillac BLS

    Here's a sketch of a new BLS, it's a tad generic new caddy, but hopefully some flashy rendering will lend it some excitement.



    It's not too detailed, because I'm gonna render it. I hope you like =)

    Can you make the fog lights in line with the main headlights? I like it.

    This is really sweet. The Bottom of the rockers seem a little goofy to me, but maybe that will change with the render. I am also not too sure about the Hoffmeister kink in the rear window... it just doesn't seem "Cadillac" to me... I LOVE how you have incorporated the fender vent as an extension of the window trim. So Cool. I also like the fact that the hood and the front fenders don't seem like they are a mile high like they do with the current Cadillacs. The car seems a little more low-slung. Just what Cadillac needs to do.

    Looks pretty cool! Something about the greenhouse needs work though...I think the A pillar needs to be more upright. Looks like the height of the rear trunk could be toned down too. But excellent work, this is an great drawing.

    haha no, this is supposed to slot below the CTS, but it depends on how you guys precieve it. anyways the rendering is coming up decently, though I think I chose a crappy shade of orange for it...

    thanks for the comments guys!

    nice job!

    the big part wasn't my goal, and frankly neither was it looking too much like the CTS. I'm trying to change that with the render.

    Neato!

    Given that it is at a peculiar angle, I won't complain about the smallish greenhouse. This is basically what the Dodge Avenger (or a smaller Dodge Dart) should look like, sans the Cadillac fascia. As concerns Cadillac, I still believe they shouldn't build vehicles that small, but that has nothing to do with your impressive design skills.

    Very nice drawing! Well done!

    The Cadillac needs an entry level car underneith the CTS. I have no idea why we never got the BLS. I like it! And the drawing fits into Cadillac new design language!
