    I used softimage XSI 5 and NO, I am not late. The Camaro is not in production yet and besides, the final product will be slightly different due to parts produced and finish. The closest car to match the concept version is the Pontiac Solstice so far. Still, we got to see. Besides, the GTO is on a comeback before the Camaro so why not use the body first, more bulgy flared fenders and a more wide rear stance. When put side by side this model is about 12 inches longer and 4 inches wider. The roof is slightly slanted like the Solstice and the windshield wipers are hidden tuck. A muscle car deserves meaty tires so I stayed with 18's and made a more aggressive (trying to ) simulate the honeycomb version. I was thinking about the shaker hood but that is only a choice that some would make down the road. I will put the shaker as requested. Also, the heat vents on the fenders are functional.
    The rear quarter panels are bulgier than camaro concept, the tail ends in a depressed angle and the brake lights are like the 82, flat cut.

    Here is the link to the remaining images:

    Thanks for the comments, I did this for fun but I will have a more aggressive totally different look for the Firebird soon.

    Re: Pontiac Firebird Concept

    well... it is late for the contest. this'll prolly get bumped into the readers talent thread before long.

    nice retro design. i think i like it.

    but it does look VERY narrow. since you've got it rendered, i assume relative dimensions shouldn't be a problem. any chance you could spec out a wheelbase, length and width for my own fun? (wait - never mind. saw it in the above post!)

    so that's 12" longer and 4" wider than the camaro concept? maybe its the perspective or something, but it looks significantly narrower than the camaro, and a 12"x4" growth wouldn't really account for it...

    (190+12)/(70+4) = 2.73
    190 / 70 = 2.71

    wierd. and sorry for just having put math in a thread.

    i kinda like the nose, tho it looks maybe a bit too droopy.

    also the soft focus thing you've got going on there makes my contacts feel dry. very odd.

    am i correct in saying htat the cabin tapers towards the back (the side windows seem more upright by the a-pillar than the b-pillar)? if so, i've got serious concerns over the ability of that window to roll down! i only mention that cos' it is a 3-d model - i'd likely not nit-pick so much for a drawing or chop.

    it certainly does look like you know what you're doing with that rendering software. i'd love to see some more of your work in the next contest, and over in the readers' talent forum too.

    Re: Pontiac Firebird Concept

    Did you go to my link above, Yes, perspective is a bit off. I used a 45-55mm lense to display more thus giving the effect of looking narrow. It is an illusion an I think the other renders in black paint have a 35-45mm lens when rendered. Good observations. The model was created using the latest camaro concept numbers and photos as a guide. Believe me, it is wider.

    Thanks again for the comments. I like that kind of observations. Good feedback.

    Re: Pontiac Firebird Concept

    VERY nice, but to differentiate the firebirds from the camaro, i think the new (hypothetical) firebird should have a cabin like the 4th gens and teh new corvette's. unless it'd be too much work, could you try to do a rear window like the 4th gen TAs had? (the same style cabin the corvette has now)

    still needs work, bigger bird, fog lamps, gas cap, pontiac arrowheads on the rims and a rear window and rear quater windows...

    but other than that, its GORGEOUS! I set it as my desktop
