    Short-Wheelbase Avalanche

    I decided to make a short-wheelbase Avalanche on my experiment with GIMP. If the Suburban has a short-wheelbase version (Tahoe) why not the Avalanche? (which is basically Suburban made into a truck)

    Here it is!

    Looks pretty good! Especially since you are beginning GIMP, it looks really neat. Each time, you will get better and better.

    Instead of creating the back area, you should have copied and pasted it.
    And then you need to concentrate on the details (like now you have 1 cross bar for your roof rack).

    Check out this interpretation:

    not a bad idea, but, rather then leave it a crew cab why not just make it a 2 door ext cab and call it the new small pickups and ditch the canyon

    Re: Short-Wheelbase Avalanche

    there ya go, i like that. you might even be able to keep the plastic bed cover and the little roll bar looking things. But looks good, i like the tahoe/avalanche lights on a truck, i think maybe a silverado grill + those headlights would be a good combination

    I really, really, really, really hate you, rex! (and FBodyrules... and TorRed... and....)

    I can't even draw a proper stick figure, no less master some sort of photoshopping skills.

    Oh, the ideas I wish I could express...
