    The New Venture

    So, still a work in progress as you can see, but I was really excited about it, so I wanted to post. I think that I have done pretty well getting the 3/4 view down, so , what do you all think?

    I like the front. I'd like to see the finished product although I think the minivan is a bit too long.

    It might look really long because it does not ride as high, and also doesn't have a roof as high as other minivans.

    Here is the finished product, I am pretty happy with it. I think I might try an interior dash shot, and maybe a rear shot as well.

    I like the front alot. Very edgy but it doesn't say "chevy" to me (unless you plan on giving the Venture to a different division)

    Well. except for the windows by the D-pillar and the front fascia... yes, it looks like an xB.
    Then again, I kinda like the look of the xB, which in some respects is like a mini Astro van... which I also liked.

    I don't think it looks like one, but I really like it, especially the hips you gave it on the back and the sharp curve along the side from the wheel well to the end of the van.

    The roofline is too low.

    I agree that it is a little too long. Bumper reminds me of the Sky.

    Ok I see what you were talking about. Your front end is more aggressive than mines. I like the hard edge curving up the side. Great job. This looks like a van everyone can enjoy.

    Actually, I was talking about how the side windows go from a lower height, and then curve up abruptly to a higher height.

    Thanks for the comments!
