    Poll: The Best out of three

    Here are two entries that I've been working on. I'm almost completed with these ones; which are going to be my first entry. I need to know the one to keep refining more though. The second entry should be complete soon; once a winner is decided and I can refine that entry more. Here they are!

    EDIT:
    I've taken the second entry down; I've narrowed it down to these two.

    Remember: they are a work in progress; I need to decide the one that is going to be refined more.

    All three are extremely blurry. They also don't show any real character. It's like you've taken any special features the donor car had, and erased them to make a very generic sedan. I'm not crazy about the logo size either .

    Generic is the best word to describe these sedans. Honestly I can't see much of a difference between them. The bumper is about all I can see. The logos are way too big. The blurriness doesn't help the look of the car.

    Ok, so I'll tone down the logos. But, what can I do to cut down on the bluriness?

    I agree. LOL. I need to work on the bluriness factor.

    Even though I'd love Oldsmobile and Rover to be revived, I am against doing it at the same time The 75 is the last vehicle in the world appropriate for this king of grille, and the Vanden Plas is one of the worst stretch versions ever.

    I'd suggest starting over (maybe you could take a Mazda Sentia or Eunos MS-8), of if your REALLY need to stick with Rovers, take an MG ZT and forget about this grille!

    I knew you would be the one to know it was the Rover 75 as a base.
    I'll see what I can do. Do you like the first one; it doesn't have the grill that you hate!

    P.S
    I can make the grill smaller

    I despise all of them, to be honest. I see that you try to travesty the very last Olds grille, which in turn was a very nice solution - it was refreshing and new while being an extension of the tradiitonal Olds grille. The whole premise was "a grille with no grille". It worked well on such "futuristic" designs like the firast Aurora, but it won't work everywhere.

    The Rover 75 on the other hand is the ultimate freaked-out ultra-50s-retro sedate sedan. It NEEDS a huge chrome waterfall grille, it is an integral part of this design. It also does not lend itself to any stretching, but Rover somehow only saw it after it was too late... Anyway, why did you go for the "classic" headlights rather than the flush ones from the "desperate facelift" models - they looked terrible on the Rover, but perhaps might do on an Olds?

    Anyway - why don't you try to curb your tendency to expose the Olds emblem and try working with this:
