Gah, this can be so discouraging sometimes.

3rd model, still WIP, struggling with it, using multiple references, with conflicting lighting.



Anything easily fixed or?

All three models, side by side:



All comments/critics are welcomed.

EDIT:
more messing

Thanks, but I'm aware of the work from http://www.pixelcarart.com/ , and while it is useful in some details, I find it constricting for what I'm trying to do.

Anyway, more progress on the 3rd model, but still can't get the front part right. Maybe I need to rethink it once more. Slow, but rewarding process. Hope I'm learning something...

It seems like you're having trouble with the front of your cars. For the truck I would probably ditch the lighter part in the back and just shade it more solidly. It looks like pillow shading atm.

The blue car has an even worse problem with the front, though. Look at it again. It seems you have a mix of perspectives going on there; something between a full side view and a slightly skewed view, like you couldn't decide what to choose?

I didn't mean to follow all rules of pixelcars, but lighting should be the same if light source is above the car ;)

I was trying to say that most cars there have the same basic shape, so when a newbie like me is faced with slightly different shapes and proprotions...he is lost. :)

Dr_D, I think Berlinetta 1960 is pretty much right, regarding the shape. Check out the blueprint, or this image:

This is the part I'm referring to:



And to be honest, the blueprint looks odd in the same way. The actual car doesn't look like that.

 I can see how it might be required to connect the windshield to the front of the car. But the shading you've employed makes it look like a separate plane.
