I'm very into drawing and recently came up with the idea to draw a tbird the way I think it should be. So here it is. And a few other things too just for fun.







I have a few more things too, once I get them scanned I'll post them.

Very Nice! If you can draw good try to draw some front bumper designs for a 94-95 Bird. I plan on making a custom front air dam this summer and don't even have a design in mind yet.

Sorry one of the above pics is kind of ricey lol. It was my first crack at drawing a bird so I think I've improved a bit. Here are a few more things.

I tried to go with smoething not done before. The line that comes down in the middle of the bumper I think kind of accents the ridge that goes up the middle of the hood. And the curving design of it onthe sides I think kind of accents the above scoops on tha factory part. This is only one design, I'll try and come up with a few more soon. Tell me what you think.

Actually I'll be graduating highschool in two weeks and heading off to college for criminal justice and mechanics (not sure what yet) Design would be a hard job to really get into unfortunately. If I had a scholarship or something from a real art school things might be different.

Ah, well, keep it up nonetheless....you never know what could happen. :)


My brother got a criminal justice degree when he was in school. Good luck with that as well.

Mechanics? You mean Mechanical Engineering? Or auto mechanics (technical/vocational style)? or what?


Job market for astrophysicists isn't exactly large either... :(
Keep those drawings coming... they're awesome!

I like the first one alot too, could do without the 23" wheels, but oh well.

After that they start to head for riceville, or Lamborghiniville...:D

Okay, I really like this bumper. I kind of took the side ones from the factory scoops and the middle one from the center scoop below the hood. That way it all flows well together. Plus I added some rims, looks better...even if they are 23's! That's the way of a car designer I guess. I just redesigned the bumper and pasted it onto the car because redoing the entire car would take waaay too long. The rims are what take the longest.

Yeah I know they aren't done yet, there's a process to makingfront bumpers: 1 - finding the center. 2 - finding the curve. 3 - making it all work together. I'm only in the first step in those unfinished cars. I think they're hideous right now also lol

I like this idea. There is just something missing. I can't really put my finger on it though. (No I'm not talking about the rims) See if you can get different angles and make it proportional to real life. I think that this if the design I'm going to try and make. Now, where do I even start.

Yo you have mad talent. Wow. I am impressed. I love those wheels.

Ever thought of submitting them to a wheel company and seeing if they would want to make them......heck they might give you a free set for coming up with the design.



Well keep up the good work.


:thumbsup:
