Sketch Competition #22 - The Next HHR

47 posts in this topic

Welcome to Sketch Competition #22!
Posted Image


While its been confirmed that we'll see another version of the Cobalt in 2010, the future of its HHR companion isn't so cut-and-dried. The popular retro-influenced wagon has seen several variations already in its lifetime, including a panel wagon and the hot upcoming SS and we think its sales will certainly justify its continutation. Therefore, the largest problem with the HHR is where does it go from here. Retro is constantly said to be hard to update and it seems the only way that retro has survived as been to just wither on the vine (PT, Beetle). Time to prove them wrong.

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to design the next-generation Chevy HHR for 2010/11. Luckily for the HHR, it doesn't sell on retro styling alone; rather, utility is its hallmark. So whether you want to continue the retro styling or evolve it into something else is completely up to you. Remember, though, it should remain a front-drive compact with lots of cargo room for its size. If you'd like to see a two-door or convertible a la Chrysler's PT Cruiser, go ahead and explore those bodystyles in addition to the four-door we see now. Panel wagons and SS variants are also encouraged.

Again, we highly encourage you to design interiors along with multiple exterior views to really give a complete feel to your design. In these cars especially, interior design is paramount and we'd love to see awesome interiors with awesome exteriors. The only restriction aside from being a compat utility is that this must be a Chevrolet!

Please include at minimum 2 (two) of the following:
-3/4 Front View
-3/4 Rear View
-Interior View

**Entries without two perspectives will still be accepted, but will incur a 2-point penalty at the end of voting**


Remember, people will be voting based on the overall presentation of your entry, so the more views, the better, including ones not specifically listed above.

Aside from 800x600 size guidelines, remember this should be a Chevrolet vehicle.

The winner will recieve a GM-related prize!

Deadline is Tuesday, November 6th @ 11:59PM your local time.

Good luck! :CG_all:

Coincidentally, I just made a sketch of a next-gen PT Cruiser.

I will be glad to give the HHR a new body.

So is your interior spontaneously combusting or what? Cuz I don't think that's a good selling point. :P

Good Futuristic Concept Mr DM. Please remove the brushlines and make interior less hazy and more defining and work on the lines of the side view.

This is the direction I'm taking:

just a quick sketch, I'll refine it as we go along.

The lights give it a bit of a "Mini" feel. Not sure if that's good, bad, or indifferent, just a thought I had.

The lights are meant to mimic the Bel-Air concept I assume....

I definitely get the mini vibe. But also those lights are a little SSR-ish.

The quality of the images don't do the drawings any justice. :/ As my scanner is broken, I'm relegated to photographing my drawing, doing what I can in photoshop, and posting that. Please judge the design, not the image!

That actually looks great, I wish I could see it scanned at higher resolution though. But still very cohesive and mature. It does seem a little larger than the HHR. I get a feeling it would make a GREAT GMT360 or GMT345 SUV though. Still looks very nice.

I like it alot too, it'd be cool to see an old ~30's grill on it, the lower half extended into the bumper.

Here's my entry. I tried to post it a few days ago, but my user account got deleted or something. My email address changed, so maybe that caused the problem. Anyway, I had to create a whole new account, so it got delayed a bit. Posted Image

speaking of delays, is Fly ever going to post the results of the Kappa II voting?

Actually, this was originally intended for Daewoo Kalos/Chevrolet Aveo that I recently drawn, but since I'm new here, and I found out the contest for the Aveo has already been closed so I am putting this as the HHR, since I personally hate, and don't care about Chevrolets to begin with. I am nowhere near as good as most of you in drawing but I tried. I don't care if it gets 0 points, but it's only for fun, for I love drawing cars. It's got no colors, it's just a lousy sketch of mine, but enjoy. Most of the drawings I've done heavily focuses on Pontiacs so.... The ones I've done are Fiero, Firebird, Grand Prix, Sunfire, T1000, and so and so. I have also drawn my version of PT Cruiser a while back, but I hated it, so I destroyed it.

I know I suck, but enjoy and laugh all you want at it. No, I don't have any other angles, for I suck in drawing the back.

No, you do not suck! Aside from being very squished, it is actually quite a nice design! BUT! This looks more like a hatchback (i.e. Mazda 6-style), not high heritage roof-reminiscent, but a nice style none the less. Edited by MarioBro88

No, it's not a hatchback. It is meant to be a sedan. I've studied some of the drawings that are included in the magazines like Motor Trend, and others, and it seems like the rear, they tend to draw it small to make it more balanced in looks, so that's what I did. I know, making the pics not squished is one area that I am having trouble with. It never come out right as I intended, oh well....

The HHR is a sport wagon, not a sedan, by the way, and I doubt a sedan variant is likely.
