Cody,

thanks for the support - good to think we can all be friends again.

Your S-U-V sketch has a good character - how about you apply some colour to it to finish it off? Maybe have a look at Yammel Matteo's recent works for a few tips?

All the best,

Freddie

Hi Cody, Hi Matthew.

No, I'm not "like that to everybody" - I only ever comment when I feel someone is being a little unfair. I Cody's case I took exception to his critical comments. He has since made an apology which we accepted.

As such, the matter is finished as far as I'm concerned and I'm sure Cody feels the same - I certainly DON'T make a habit of "dissing" everyone on the site as many, many guestbooks will testify. Please get your facts straight.

I am not tring to be negative. I point out minor things i think need work. this doesnt mean they do need work. I am stating an opinion, I like the designers work I comment on. I just give them feedback that many of them are probably glad to hear. with no critique u cant grow. I try to touch base with designers to hear there thoughts of my designs. what i say is never harsh nor intended to be.
sorry if i stepped on someones feet.

Hi Cody,

thanks for your recent comments about my work.

Reading your guestbook, it seems as though you might've accidentally antagonised a few people recently - ooops. Best of luck.

Regarding your own work: keep on practicing.

Keep on checking the perspectives of your underlays (flip and tweak in Photoshop if needs be) as it'll add to the realism of your design: nothing spoils a sketch more than seeing elements which are out of perspective.

Beyond that, think about the details, think about how the whole design needs to hang together - think about the mass and volumes of the forms you're describing.

As far as colour work in Photoshop goes - there are some great web tutorials out there. If you want some good guidance to start you off, check out Emre Hussmen's brilliant weblink - it really helped me.

You'll get there, but it takes determination, observation of how real cars look and photograph, and TIME. I've been sketching vehicles since I was a kid, and I still feel I've got a lot to learn - even though I've been a professional designer for the past 11 years...

Last of all, remember that Design is all about personal expression - so it's not always a good idea (or particularly fair) to be critical of what other people have already done.

All the best - and good luck.

Cody.
My advice to you would be to get on with generating some of your own designs rather than pick fault in work that is at a level you're nowhere near my friend.
With a little less criticism these professionals might actually be more inclined to offer their help & experience, which you could benefit from.

Cody,

I've noticed you seem to spend a lot of time offering "advice" about other peoples work.

Some of these comments are a bit negative, which is a bit cheeky, considering your own current ability level.

Perhaps if you devoted more effort to improving your own work rather than criticising other people, you'd become a more valued member of the Designerspace community.

Cody,

I like your Cadillac ATR sketch. There's something really strong and aggressive about the form - you've got the Caddy details and "edginess" just about right for my money. I'd love to see a front 3/4 though . . . . keep up the good work,

Mike
