    El Camino

    Here's a quick sketch I did today, try to ignore the fact the car is too narrow, the perspective is off and it's on lined paper, it was just a quick sketch I did to get some ideas on paper. What do you think of the design?

    Did you read the part where I said "try to ignore the fact the car is too narrow" I don't need to be reminded of what I already know, but thanks everyone else for the comments.

    I like where you're going with this. It reminds me of a recent concept, but I can't think of it right off the top of my head. In any case, this has a great deal of potential.

    I like it. Nice different style than we've been accustomed to seeing. That's cool. Personally, I don't think its too narrow...more that the rear is just a bit larger than it should be for such an extreme perspective.

    Hmm. Looks Pontiac-y up front, but I like it! Maybe try drawing it on some white, unlined paper, too - less visually distracting that way.

    The finished drawing will be on white paper, these are just quick sketches I did at work, I don't have proper paper at work.
    What do you guys think of the scoop? Thats one thing I'm not sure of.

    Great job, other than the unproportionality, I like the first one better.
    Never mind.
