can you make these better?

O.K. ... a little background. I recently got drawn into the art contest going on here ,( ) and my stuff is cartoonish at best.
But it got the pencil in my hand again for the first time in a long time , and I started trying to sketch the "57 Fordgatti" that I've always wanted to build.
Sort of a cross between a 57 chevy, an early Forty-ish Ford and a Bugatti .......
I know , I know...
So , here are some views : side , front and back. 2-D , cuz I ain't no draw-er.
I would really appreciate it if someone could take these and improve on their quality , maybe give em some depth , or correct the dimensions , whatever you can do to them. or just tell me what you think of this mon-strosity.
Thanks ,
Mike

79C10, is it supposed to be a batmobile? What is supposed to be the big circle thing in the middle that looks kinda out of place? Is that supposed to be a grill? It looks too big for the rest of the car
I tried to edit real quick in paint to what i think it should look more like. It is possible that i didn't quite understand what your were trying to accomplish and got it wrong in my edit tho. I hope this helps

Nope.... it is not 'supposed' to be the Batmobile , but I guess that's what it looks like.
Yep - the round thing is the grille , and I think you are right, it is too big for the car.
Nice job on the re-work. that is definitely closer to 'right' than what I drew.


This got me thinking about "Batman" tho ... he was a rich dude..... you know he didn't build that car himself...........could he be a ...................CHECKBOOK HOTRODDER!!!!!!

i did a little more work on the picture but paint and touch pad are killing me so i'm done. I might fire up the beast and get on photoshop later today, but usb ports don't work on this laptop and wireless is available only in one room, and the beast is not in that room. So it would be too much work involved just to move the file.
