I’m shocked and honored by the warm reception the Vellum Venom series has earned from TTAC’s B&B. Your comments are read, digested and will influence the series, but some comments move quicker than others. To wit: Josh Howard’s photochop of my Chevy Cruze image.
“You were so right about the smoothing out of the Cruze front end and getting rid of the small fake DLO plastic piece in front. This car looks WAYYYY different and more Toyota-like with some of the changes you suggested. – JH”
Now imagine Josh’s changes with a bow tie in the center and we are done. This “Vellum Venom Cruze” looks Acura-like, a bit more BMW E36-like and much like any other classically proportioned sports sedan from the modern era. But wait, we aren’t done re-designing this little hit from the big General. Hit the jump for another rendering of Epic Win.
This submission was from TTAC’s own sinistermisterman. Note the softer edges in this grille’s rendering–compared to Josh–and the crossbar added at a lower position, allowing for a smooth hood cut line and parity with the headlights. Parity! And while Mr. Sinister didn’t incorporate a re-think of the DLO fail, it’s pretty clear that both members of the B&B understand what I regularly demand: proportion and ATD (Attention to Detail) über alles.
What do you think of both “Vellum Venom Cruze” concepts, Best and Brightest?
And of course, here’s the original photo for comparison.
