    Not Quite a Drawing Not Quite a Photoshopped Car

    im introducing a new style of designing cars.i used paint.hahahahahahahaha!(because i dont have photoshop at home and when i tried to download the trial version things went awry)
    anyway the perspective is off but for obvious reasons.the car you are about to view isnt meant for any of gm's brands.someday i hope to own my own : car company called "belou" (thats pronounced blue, like the color) and this is belou's sports car that will hopefully someday compete with the camaroes and mustangs of tomorrow.

    intoducing the 2010 belou torque...
    hope you like

    Why bother having a greenhouse at all?

    you know rex...we've had this conversation before.constructive criticism...

    anyway

    the idea behind the car was to show case the look.its not a realistic drawing...now if you could comment on the idea presented i would really appreciate it...

    i see why you said what you said...but...
    its a drawing...and drawings often exaggerate the propotions of the actual car.the fact that the torque has little greenhouse is an "exaggerated metaphor" of the sleekness of the coupe...

    Re: Not Quite a Drawing Not Quite a Photoshopped Car

    Constructive criticism:

    The greenhouse is WAY too low, even for a concept drawing.
    The car itself is very generic looking. To me it looks like a mix of the Chevy SS concept, and the Buick Lacrosse Concept, both in coupe form.
    The wheels are too big, and the wheelwells are too small.

    The whole car seems too low to the ground. Around here, we have things called speedbumps.

    Why color the wheels, if you aren't going to color the whole car?

    Sorry to be so negative, but you asked for it.

    til then you'll have to look at this.thanx for the constructive criticism.

    "probably"

    i think you spent too much time on the words, and not enough time on the drawing. its pretty weak.

    by that, i mean all of the things that rex said, and more.

    the cartwheels on the lower fascia - i assume they are supposed to be a fog/driving light and a turn signal/side marker - would not likely appear as such from the side, and the cartwheel is not a very good shape for representing a light.
    and your hood has a really awkward bump to it.

    overall, i'm just not diggin' it.

    and if you're having trouble downloading a trial version of photoshop, try this as an alternative:

    paint shop pro. its less capable, but also much more affordable. and its available as a 60-day full-function trial.

    please stop using paint. its like using a fisher price hammer to build a house.

    that's why the comments aren't positive: paint it blue and write across ford, and you'll think it's a badge...

    why don't you use the constructive criticism to adress the bad areas?
