getting a jump on a Christmas gift for my brother,
so i drew out his '72 datsun 240z
first attempt at car line art, learning as i go

any input is appreciated as far as ideas go,
something seems missing

but i do tend to overthink,
like the second iteration with the dimensions (deleted image)
i could forgo those and throw in a 'datsun 240z' text under it instead

Mirror and steering wheel inside the cockpit? -.-

I had 4 Z cars back in the day. A '77, '78, '84, '94 convertible. I used to love those cars. But it's a good vector drawing. I would say that the door seems to be floating on the side of the car. There's some detail near the bottom of the windshield that's missing. The mirror 'stem' looks too skinny. The Z logo on the front is rotated and the one on the side is rotated a little as well. But it looks perfect. Just some details. Color would also be nice.

thanks all

those are some excellent points,
i knew there was something not quite right
(staring at my laptop zoomed in on the details and could not get get my little mind to view the 'whole car')

color is not in the equation,
i usually stick to black or white htv (for now anyway)

Your design off course, but those styles of cockpit maybe?

Yeah, Edward! Fix that "Z" before it drives us OCD folks up a wall!
updated design
The passenger side pusher/bumper looks to be incomplete...
Not nit picking just observation, does the door go right down to the bottom of the cill? the seat appears to be leaning in to the centre
Yeah, the seat is throwing me off. Seems like its angle clashes with the roofline.

I know you're just trying to give an example, but that's a ZX and is not appealing to those of us who are Z enthusiasts.
