    Pontiac Sunfire GXP

    I was just so upset with the Broncos loss today I thought I'd take it out on Ford with a mean Fusion competitor...introducing, the Sunfire GXP.
    Grr!



    ...And for some reason, i just couldn't decide on a grill for this thing, so i tried again, you guys can decide.

    Looks almost like something TorRed would make. The first grille is the better one. There could be a bit more of a rear deck, but overall a great design.

    but he is a major one of many people that influence my drawings and motivate me to improve my drawing skills!

    Looks really cool. I love how your drawings look like they were pictures taken with a fish eye lens. Theyre kinda bludgy. Its really cool. I definately think that the first grille idea goes better than the second one even though the second fits pontiac more. Great job!

    I like the first one a lot. Good job! I agree w/ asim though; please draw it normaly. I'd understand if thats the only way you can but if ure just doing it to piss people off/get some laughs i'd like to see a regular drawing.

    hey firebird,

    I like your style but every car you do seems to have the driver's side front truncated (chopped off) as if the car has a very pointed front end which is probably not the effect you are going for.

    I've very roughly set up in PhotoShop an example of what I think would help the car look better proportioned.

    I extended the driver side of the car, extending the grille and the bottom opening, and added the matching fog lamp as you'd be able to see both of them at this angle. I've also stretched the "greehouse" vertically as the scale was a little weird.
