    Took a whack at something

    so, I really like the idea of a Saab 9-2X and I gave it a try. I have been having a hard time translating cues from the Aero-X concept into drawing but I think I have done an OK job on it this time.

    (I have to apologize, I am in the middle of moving and have already packed my trace, so they will appear messy. I will update with more finished drawings later...)



    I was also wondering what on earth was going to be done with the HHR when it needs refreshing. I can't say how annoying it is that the PT Cruiser looks pretty much the same from the very beginning; and it is getting old! So, this is my interpretation of what a next-gen. HHR might look like!

    thanks! hopefully by next week I will be able to trace over them with smoother lines, and will be able to detail things a little better.

    Nice drawings.
    I dunno about your choice of wording for the thread title. Sounds kind of suggestive as in TMI or mob-like.
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    I REALLY like the ideas you have for the HHR. That is the way GM should do a redesign/refresh... nice job

    Re: Took a whack at something

    So a slight update everybody; I was bored at work today and tried a REALLY rough sketch of the 9-2x's rear. Like the other drawings, I didn't have anything to look at and all design cues were drawn from memory so some things may seem a little off. I am really pleased with the proportions and the stance, now I just have to clean it up. Again, as soon as I am unpacked (most likely by this weekend) I will be breaking out my trace and really refining things. Because of my rear sketch, some things may be changing on the front.

    Nice work on the SAAB, they need to hire people like you.

    Make the top drawing in this tread a 2 door and call it a Sonnet.

    I think if you get the chance (like you suggest) to update the front 3/4 drawing of the Saab to more reflect that rear-end design (which is great), it'll look awesome!

    HHR is a little pointier than it needs to be, perhaps... sharp overall, just a little too 90's Buick Skylark for me. Great job as usual... love the little details on the sketch page!

    Oh, and on the paper with your rear-end drawing... the side view just above it is awesome! NMaybe not for the same car... but I'd love to see something like that with front and rear fenders à la Prowler... kinda tacked-on, free floating. The cabin / c0ckpit looks great!
