    CADILLAC ULS by Atomicshark

    Press Release:
    Toyota has quietly invested heavily in GM in a partnership to help bolster the company and keep the US economy healthy. The first symbolic vehicle to come from this union is the flagship automobile of Cadillac. Heavily based on the new Lexus LS chassis. The Cadillac ULS is an all out effort between Toyota's and GM's top engineers and designers to create an automobile that is truly the "Standard of the World". Only the best materials were used in this effort to create a no holds barred luxury sedan for under $100,000.

    is that a render or a chop?

    -if it's a render it's really good

    -if it's a chop it looks too cartoony

    Looks great!

    Two Suggestions: Make a longer trunk (if there is one) and put the Cadillac emblem in the middle of the grill as well.

    Looks good...
    I'd put the wreath and crest on teh grille.
    I'd put the "jewelled" effect on teh grille (liek Escalade)
    The sideview mirrors are tiny.
    Trunk's not long enough.

    Great job, very nice rendering. The only thing I would suggest would be putting the emblem on the grill like suggested by ocmgog and making the door handles bigger, they look really small.

    I like that rendering, moreso than the clay model that GM had released earlier this year.

    I too prefer more of a Sixteen/Escalade-like grille with the wreath & crest in the middle. It's a very nice blend of both current Art & Science and Cadillac Sixteen. I swear that ass end almost looks like the Imaj's.

    Not a bad rendering. What's your secret? I just stick to drawing myself.

    It is indeed a rendering. Hand sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop. 100% original, no borrowed parts.

    I am still mulling the wreath and crest on the grill. I'll probably add it.

    I am not sure if I want the grill to look too busy with more details, but I'll try it.

    I tried to give this a large car look, but I think I will need to make the mirrors and the door handles bigger.

    Because the C-Pillar slopes so much the trunk looks small, I might experiment with a slightly longer look to see if I like it.

    Thanks all for the input so far...keep it coming.

    I like it a lot, very good work.

    I'm a little bored with the sides; they appear very flat. Consider enhancing the slope of the rear and maybe front wheel arches.

    Greenhouse is a little too '300C'. Maybe play a little bit with the rear window's corners?

    Re: CADILLAC ULS by Atomicshark

    Update #1:

    I enlarged the door handles

    The side mirror has been upsized.

    I tweaked the C-Pillar to reveal the trunk a bit better.

    Update #2 possibilities:

    Wreath and Crest in grill.

    More detailed grill.

    Maybe a couple of other tweaks...

    Good Job. I hope Cadillac does build the ULS (with a different name). I like the updates you did, makes it look even better. Can ya do a drawing of the rear?
