Sketch Competition #22 - The Next HHR

47 posts in this topic

I know, but as I have said, this was originally intended as Chevrolet Aveo, but I could not post it there since it was closed for posting, so I just enterred it as HHR instead. I don't care if it gets 0 points since this is only for fun, and since I don't know and don't care about Chevys to begin with. I just like to draw that's all, but I didn't really get a chance to draw the HHR due to my busy work schedule.

But, Thanx. If there ever going to be a contest for any pontiacs, I have some old drawings of mine that I can enter. Such as T-1000, which I have drawn the front like this, and the back view, which isn't great, but....

Sorry for double posting(hey, my previous post was last night so), but I actually took the time and draw the HHR. It's back(though it's crooked, I don't why, but I am having trouble getting them to look right :( ), and its dash. Well, I hate what it turned out, and as usual, I admit my crudeness for I know I suck in drawing, but hope you enjoy. You can laugh all you want, so use these instead of the Aveo that I have posted here.

As usual, I don't care people hates it, laugh about it or what not, but drawing is my free time activity after work sometimes. When I am not on PS2 playing, or coding in front of the computer, that's what I do, so....

Hope you enjoy them, though they suck.

Guys, guys! The 80s and 90s are over! Some of these look like Geos or something.

On the other hand, not bad Zulehan or Burns.

I know mine sucks, but imho, I think the drawings hers are pretty darn good. I wonder if this contest will start anytime soon, though I am only in for fun.

This is a design project to update a vehicle based on a design from the 50's. Updating a retro model is never easy. If it looked contemporary it wouldn't be a proper HHR update.

This competition's original deadline was November 6th. Over two weeks ago, with no reference from the mod about an extention. The previous contest Kappa II has not had voting results posted although the deadline for voting was, what, six weeks ago (?).

Is it just me, or has the Sketch Competitino section been abandoned?

This lull in activity is not uncommon. Flybrian gets busy and preoccupied sometimes with other stuff. Don't worry, the ball will roll again soon.

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!

lambda is to big for this, but i think it could be translated well on lambda. anyone else think so?

Actually, according to copyright law, it wouldn't be stealing. If you make a design variant of a GM car, they automatically own all legal rights to the work. I found that out the hard way when I sent some sketches to Pontiac back in '84. I was unhappy with the bland looks of the first iteration of the Third gen(?) TransAm and sent some ideas for spiffing it up. Being a young, naive guy, I asked only for a new TA as compensation. J Michael Losh responded and said he liked my sketches and encouraged me to apply for a position at Pontiac's design studio, but, since Firebird and TransAm are GM properties, the sketches were legally theirs as soon as I sent them. :-(

They did use some of my ideas (or I happened to have some of the same ideas they had already created) so I felt vindicated when I started to see some of them in production. My fiancee was dead set against living in Michigan so I never followed up on the invitation to apply.

Girls and cars don't mix.

well the way around that would be drawing a car for a sketch competition but not stating nor badging it as a chevrolet etc any brand of car, but instead saying it is a visual concept of what you think it should look like. That way the drawing would be yours, wouldnt have any connection with any automobile company and they cant legally steal your ideas. im going to start doing this. :)
