    G6 Convertible Butt-lift

    ...Ever seeking perfection, Firebird1324 dares a risky attempt at a rear-view shot of his favorite car.

    In essence, this is the first time I tried drawing a butt shot, and I decided since I think the G6 convertible leaves a little bit to be desired, I threw this together. I know there's some things off, like overall size, interior proportion (another first for me), the wheels, and the contrast (PS is still down) but given the circumstances, I was pretty happy on how it turned out!
    Hope you enjoy...or at least have mercy =)

    Looks great man! I actually like the G6 butt, but that looks just as good.

    Saw a G6 coupe today... if I lived here now I'd buy a G6 coupe, no question. Looks freakin' awesome, and like nothing on the road. The rear hips are hot.

    Re: G6 Convertible Butt-lift

    I appreciate the perspective and the skill to get the lines right. But...to me it DOES look like everything else on the road...partcularly like a Toyota Solara...which I hate. The seats appear to be postioned too 'fore'. I would suggest running a persepctive grid to make sure that impliments are postioned appropriately. I don't know how old you are or what background you have but there are graphics books that would be very helpful to you. Remember...every horizontal foot is equivilent to approximately a four inch diagonal on perspective grid lines depending on the angle. There are very easy formulas that you can use to develop more accurate perspectives.

    I think your rear end treatment is a very good improvement over the current model. I like how the rear still resembles the G6 somewhat (i.e. I can tell its a G6). I also admire how clean your lines are. Mine suck, and im going to have to work hard on them this summer. Ive also never tried a rear view...

    IMO, it's a definite improvement. The current G6 butt kinda turns me away from even thinking of purchasing one.

    A nice one, a lot of G6 plus a touch of Solara, but certainly the proportions are better than on the original stretched G6. I am afraid the doors might be too wide. The front seats look like their seat cushions fill the footwells or are even nonexistent. If they were put in a more natural place, I am afraid there could not be enough room for rear passengers.

    Still, these are really great drawings you're doing here, you're getting better and better astonishingly fast!

    Nice design, I particularly like how the rear wheel-flare molds into the bumper...excellent!
