Dont take this the wrong way man, but I have not like any one of your drawings. Im sorry, I finally had to get that out. Im not claiming to be better or even have better taste than you, but when I look at any of your drawings all I see is the bad-ole-days of Pontiac when they were making those ugly cars in the 80s. Again, I am not trying to attack you, I just wanted to put in my two cents, as insulting as it may come off.

Its just that your designs seem to look like the Grand Prix or the Fiero of the 80s, and those are just the cars that I think have done nothing but tainted Pontiacs and GMs reputation for making good cars. In fact, it was cars like those, including others like the K-car and Tempo, that have given American cars the rep for not caring about design and comes off as trashy. GM is just recently pulling itself out of the muck and finally becoming world class again...cars like what you have been drawing would just be another Aztek in GM's side.

Yeah, I know I suck, but at least, I am happy to say, I have learned a lot thanx to all of you great people with your tips and hints. I will be trying to incorporate all of them on my future drawings.

Thank You all.
Yeah, hey man, I am by no means telling you to give up. When it comes to art, practice is really the best teacher. I am in college right now, earning my bachelors in fine art, so take if from me that there is no substitute for practice practice practice. I wish I could offer some helpful criticism, but to tell you the truth, despite being a fine art major I have never been very good at giving tips about how one could improve. I dont even have that much experince with drawing or painting mechanical things...I tend to lean more torwards classicism. And as far as my disagreement with your styling, I just have my own taste I guess.

Good luck though, if you are serious about this stuff you should really consider taking a class, or just picking up a book on the principles of car design. Principles are VERY important when it comes to mechanical drawing.
