    The body looks a bit low and I think I the rear plate needs to be higher, but so far as the drawing itself, EXCELLENT! (the side view in particular) The design is very much in keeping with the CTS & Escalade.

    I really like the headlight concept... I think a refined version of those might work well. I also like the look of the rear. I'd like to some more curve in the car and fewer butch angles. Good job. Keep it up.

    I noticed the headlights, and like them very much too. I think the car needs to be bigger tho. Much bigger. The proportions make it look smaller than the STS. But that's just perception, I guess.

    the drawing is good, i like it. the only problem for me is that i think it needs to be longer- the back door looks small and cts'esque. but thats it.

    Very nice drawings, Doc, the proportions look very realistic, too. Just 1 suggestion -
    - imho its rectangularity is 300-ish. Cadillac design as seen in the new CTS is perhaps the most sophisticated on the market right now. Check out the amazing transitions from one plane to the next in these 3 pix posted by Uboys.
