    Chevrolet Adventure

    January 1st, 2007: The official introduction of General Motor's new minivan, the Chevrolet Adventure. The Adveture is really considered a sportvan. It comes in four differnet models: Limited, SE, SS, and Hybrid! It goes up to 60 mph in 5.7, seconds and has an average of 350 hp. The starting price for the base model is $22,000; Limited: $24,550; SE: $23,600; SS: $25,000 (400 hp); Hybrid: $24,250. The Chevrolet Adveture is planned to go on sale as early as January 2008 or as late as October 2008 as a 2009 model. It plans to compete with the DaimlerChrysler minivasn (Town and Country/Grand Caravan), Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Kia Sedona/Hyundai Entourage. The Adventure is described as 'a combination of elegance and sport crossed with attitude and a mind of it's own.' The Adventure is based on the redesigned 2008 Chevrolet Malibu sedan.

    Um, not much better than a Uplander. Real rough, and not realistic. The only thing I like about it is the name.

    Like I told you over at C&G . . .

    • If you're not going to invest in cheap set of ellipses and French curves, at least buy a ruler. Even Frank Saucedo (one of a few guys in on the SS Concept and Solstice design projects) uses one. You are not, by no means, an exception to the rule, especially sense you can't find the flow of the sketch.
    • Trace a few photographs so you can get an idea of what the word perspective means. Go into Photoshop, drain the color out of them, and tinker around with the contrast and brightness so you use them for that purpose.
    • Use a nice 0.5 or 0.7 mechanical pencil so you can obtain some nice, thin, clean lines rather than a cheap Office Depot No. 2 pencil that's going to give you those chunky, thick, messy, kindergarten art project lines you have going on there.
    • Detail isn't as important in a sketch, really. Study most sketches close, and they are quite simple (shading and a few other techniques are what gives a sketch some juice). Sure, it makes it impressive, but, in your case, you have to crawl before you run. Just focus on the basics, nothing more.
    • Focus on one view of the car. You don't have to go out of your way and do interior sketches, etc. Look at some of the work of the better artists here like TorRed (just do a search on his name). They only post one view of the car, not 5,000 of them.
    • Please, keep your layouts simple and clean. It's okay to have the brand logo on the page, but kick writing the concept's name or anything else to the curb.


    Take some advice for once. I don't want to see another sketch from you, PERIOD, until you at least try some of those suggestions in an exercise and post the resulting sketch.
