well, what can i say. i just finished a week of finals and i've been drawing this car during my studying (it works, really) and the car has evolved quite a bit in the week i've been drawing it. here it is in its latest freeze.<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v402/spamthechan/IMG_0773.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>it's got bodaciously curved fenders and flares, just like a proper alfa should have. i realize the front maybe has a bit too much to do with the bugatti but i think it's got its own flare, with a bit more aggressiveness in the leading edge of the air dam. the two-layer side is maybe a bit weird; the lower step is a bit too low i think, and originally the window went all the way down but that looks weird too... i've been working on a rear but i just can't find anything in my hand that looks good.<p>why "superamerica"? i thought, if and hopefully when alfa romeo comes to america, a car like this would be a good concept to unveil with. and, well, super.<p>suggestions very welcome.

Ha ha, I totally hear ya about the drawing/studying for finals thing. It works with me, too. <p>Looks hot; maybe a little busy, in places, but pretty cool all around. Nice technique, too. And I also like how you used the word "bodacious," because, well, it's just hilarious.

The front reminds me too much of the B9 and you know what I think of the B9?... <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/pukeface.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/pukeface.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/pukeface.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/pukeface.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/pukeface.gif" BORDER="0">
