    Yes I am, but mainly to focus on details and maybe run some CitroŽn-like ideas through. I've drawn a little, also in perspective, but never an interior. I believe I also lack artistic eye to be able to draw the big lines. How about you?

    Heh, I'm not the world greatest drawer. I can draw things in 2D but adding depth and perspective makes my mind hurt. Either way, I've been trying and I came up with a basic dashboard sketch last night. I've attached it.
    I've also got a lot of CitroŽnesque ideas myself. So we'll probably have a lot of ideas. Which is great.

    I've attached my interior idea. I've wanted it to be a bit retro.
    The aircon vents on the side will have to change, I've been thinking of the round style vents you find in the Alfa 33, 145, 146 etc or maybe similar the round ones found in Bentleys. I've been thinking about the use of a lot of oval and diamond forms. Ah well, I've just been busy tossing up ideas.

    I must admit that my seat drawings are highly inspired by existing drawings of concept cars, they're more of an exercise at this point. Drawings seats is a bitch.
    The big pic is the top down view of the interior of a 4 seater concept, but it could easily be adapted to 2 seats, just chop of 2 seats or 2+2 by reducing the space between front and back.
    Proportions are probably off but, hey I'm only learning.

    Once I get my skills improved I'll start using colour, it's a bit hard to interpret the image in black and white.

    I've done a 2d scetch of dashboard too, but I won't have access to a scanner until friday, maybe not even then. There's no diamonds or ovals in my drawing though, mainly long curved lines. I'll try to draw more pictures from different angles before the weekend.

    I thought of a C4-like non-turning steering wheel centre, and maybe putting a digital tachometer in it to add some racing image. I agree with the round vents, they look good in almost anything.

    Then again a lot depends on what the body will look like.

    I don't think the MR setup will work with the 4 seat setup.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    I'm bored. I have nothing productive to do until Thursday afternoon. It's Tuesday morning. That's like 48 hours of nothing.

    heh. That hampster must be on steroids. for those of you who dont know what Auto-Cad is. I did a quick sampling for you. This will give us fully 3D control over the car and such. This took me around 10 minutes to do a quick two tires and some elementary shocks. My forte is the suspension.

    Well it's doable, and I think that would be a good selling point, which is why most likely I will be for it.

    Heh, I just made up another dashboard. I think I'm starting to get how to draw this stuff. Every time I try it improves.

    I've attached my latest design. Drawing is fun !

    Yeh, a 4-door would be great i reckon...more of a challenge with refinement, driveability, and weight reduction/distribution.
    I am a New Zealander, and I hate Greg Murphy. Yes, we exist.
