    From what I've heard about it, I would say you are very close. Maybe the headlights are not exact, but everything else is close.

    I hope there is not a long line of black plastic trim on the front. Chrome maybe but not black plastic.

    That's actaully a really good drawing both perspective and skill wise...I dunno if i'd want that exactly as the next malibu though.

    Still, muchas kudos for a great drawing!

    I'd be puttin up more stuff but I've had serious drawer's block lately and can't seem to get more than 1/4 the way through a drawing and get all frustrated.
    Sigh, I think i'm listening to the wrong music whilst I draw or something.

    Same here. I get hot, then I start to pay attention to detail, at too early in the stage. Then I press too hard or use the wrong pencil, get mad and Leave the room.

    Nice shot at it man! It looks real good, BUT I do agree that the headlights are probably different from the spy shots that we have seen.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Nice headlights man. I would drive a Malibu if it looked like that. It makes the Camry look ugly. Oh, wait, the camry does that on its own.

    I didn't see it in the real picture but I see it in the drawing. Either way, I like the Camry's looks so I like this.

    tru dat. i like the blackout-crossbar grille you did, but i think chevy will most likely go with a tahoe-style crossbar (where it's really just 2 parallel grilles).

    I agree. I think the headlights are a bit different. (Maybe more vertical length?) Great work. There are some great choppers on GMI.
