    This I think would be great competition for the 300 and it's very retro. I looked at a pic of the 57 chevy and modernized it using some Nomad concept touches. I really like it a lot and I hope you guys do too. Comments or suggestions are welcomed because I really want to make it the best it can look.

    Seems interesting, and kind of a neat idea, but your proportions are very off.
    Look how small the front door is (half the width of a tire).

    man you're getting really good at this! i really like the lines of your car. the way the side of the car arcs up, while the rook arcs down to meet it is very sharp. your side windows fit the car well, and the placement of the grille and headlights high and back into the front end really looks great. yeah, the proportion is a little skewed, but if you can take what you've drawn and play with the proportion a bit you'll have a beautiful design.

    i like it! its got some really cool and unique elements and its good retro, like the 300. You should just try to sketch out your ideas more formally and get your drawing down to a science cause when you do, everyone can say wow i can really see that coming down the street. I hope that made sense, just keep working at that design and see what you get.

    I need sort of a car sketching tutorial because I don't know how to fix the proportions and I just draw what comes to my head. Glad most of you like it though.

    You found me and you could draw better? I think you meant you found one right? I'm hoping.

    There's a drawing tutorial at "cardesignnews.com". I'm not sure exactly where (but I know I've seen it), and I haven't been there for awhile, so it might have changed.

    Yeah I've been there before but it doesn't help much with angles and stuff.

    i have a book called "how to draw cars like a pro" that i got when i was a kid, it goes into pretty good detail and has a lot of examples for all different styles and whatnot--so you could maybe try to look for that somewhere...?
