Default A little WIP of my 2000 Express van

Hello all, name is Otis. I recently purchased a 2000 Express w/ Cobra conversion. In the works are upgrading the brakes to something that is far more adequate for a heavy beast such as this, 20 maybe 22 inch wheels and a solid paint job. ( I hate all the stripes on vans). Below you will find a pic of the van as it sits, as well as a line drawing WIP that I have been working on. I would love some input on direction on this project. Thanks and enjoy.

Well I decided to see what an Escalade front clip would do for the van, the first is a line drawing witht he clip, then a WIP of it with the clip, and finally a finished poster of the van with the stock grill a smothed bumper and a nice satin black finish with one way vinyl posters on the windows.

Yeah it is scaled out to about a 20 there, think I am going to change the wheels to an 18 and see what that looks like. As far as paint goes, it will be black, white(kinda pearl or vanilla if ya will) or some tint of grey/silver. I may just go all out and wrap the whole thing with design work

Photoshop and a pen tablet. I just use the tools in the exact way I would in a mixed media drawing. I have three wild daughters and the paper drawings were not lasting around my house so I started drawing digital.
