Update:

Edit: it looks a bit boxy now so I have to smooth out the edges. Is there any part that just screams ugly box?

Just BMW not e46 in particular



Umm bro this is just a purely random sketch. Notice how version two (the very first picture) looks VERY different from an e46

I went off what your profile said you owned, a 323i. I assumed that was your inspiration, considering that's what this site specifically tailors to.

Never hurts to start off with a good base with correct proportions to draw things out on.

Oh very true. When I started drawing version one, I first made the kidney grilles, then headlights, then bumper

Are you basing your design as a 'concept' or as a modification for current models?

I can throw up some other models if your going the modification route.

More concept. Some ideas are probably found from other cars but I am trying to go more of the original concept route
