Nice stuff Martin. Sometimes it's a lot of fun to just churn out a bunch of ideas in this way, to get the creative juices flowing. Unfortunately I don't have time to comment on each, but I will say (as I'm sure I have before) that I really like your drawing and shading styles.

The designs themselves seem to share a common theme in that all of them, to some degree, are kind of brutish and blocky; this works on a few of them (namely the top left sketch, as well as a couple of the more SUV-ish designs) but seems ill-suited to smaller cars or racy coupes. I'd like to see some sleeker, more organic designs alongside the more angular ones you've presented here, some cars that are beautiful in their simplicity instead of overwrought; I know you'd have some great ideas. A good example is the coupe-like four door you posted at the end of your gallery; that's a great-looking car.

Ever thought about making your own "company," as many of us have here? I'd like to see what you came up with.

All good stuff, and as DoMiNo mentioned the shading style is awesome! Some interesting shapes on some of them - you should definately develop all of these!

For a second there I thought Audi paid you to lambast us with subliminal advertising. Those subtle four Rings look alike on some of the sketches can be confusing don't you think?;)

then again I know they're just proportion guides. The sketches look really awesome. They have that sort of humanness or is rawness to them that it just makes want to see more. One can really see a creative process in these sketches. That tutorial is on point and kudos to the time and effort. I just can't get enough of these.

Hehe yeah you never know, maybe I should consider getting a job with Audi on that

Taskbearer thank you very much for your reply, I really didn't expect such a big comment! I will keep bringing sketches

haha I don't know if I will develope all of them, but I sure will continue drawing them. Maybe pick out a few.

Well Dom I sure had expected you to comment on them all, I am dissapointed jk

I know I have some troubles going in to simplicity that makes cars great, I see my designs as american, well a lot of them, I think I will try to go for that, soon. Actually some of these are for the Jeep contest on S&D, so that is one of the reasons they are so blocky.

Hm about doing my own brand, yeah maybe I could.. I will look into it

THX a lot guys!

Yeah, I see what you mean, many of them do have a sort of American look.

I love the third sketch, it looks like some thing that would appear in a futuristic war game.

Thumbs up

Excellent work man. I can see alot of fun has been had doing these. I like your style its quite sketchy yet at the same time it has a certain neatness to it. The jeep is really cool , its more car-like than 4x4 which is quite an interesting thing to try. Seeing as though jeep has only ever made square 4x4s :)
