Hopefully my use of perspective and proportion is improving. This sketch started out, in idea form, as a Chevrolet, but once I began sketching the side sculpting (mostly inspired by the lines of Fender's Stratocaster electric guitar) it began to take on the feel of Alfa Romeo. The taillights seem to say Mazda a little, though. So in the end, I have no idea what to call it. :P

Let me know if I am improving. I want to further refine this sketch, scan it in Photoshop, and do a rendering and presentation for you guys to critique.

Much better. You're right, doesn't feel very Chevy, but it's great anyway. Great idea using guitar design as a muse. I've also been into designing guitars. Looks a lot like a Hyundai (I know, I know) crossover I sketched the other day.

That's got some nice lines...I should take the time and get back into drawing cars...I haven't done that since I was a teenager...loved to do it. Though a lot of what I drew then ('80s) was inspired by the Chevy concept car I saw at Epcot Center and I did a lot of aerodynamic monospaces...Previa and Prius-like shapes...I guess I was ahead of my time.. :)

MDM: What are you showing me? Did you do any of that? And do you mean to show me the paint jobs or the entire guitar design?

On topic: I think the rear could be Mazda, but the sides and front aren't much in line with what Mazda is doing right now. Then again that doesn't necessarily matter, we can always take them in a new direction.
