    looking nice and clear so the modeller can see what he has to build.

    maybe try adding more unique details; for example, how might you adapt one to be driven by a Yakuza, or a scientist, or a sourceress. just as an example.

    The perspective is a bit off, but the drawing is clear enough, so it should work as concept for a model.

    Work on line clarity; your line isn't confident. Work larger (that reduces the wobbliness in lines when the image is shrunk, and gives you more leeway). Use rulers, templates and curves to aid you.

    You've got a good start here, but you may want to practice your lines on paper before doing it digitally next time. Like Arenhaus said, your lines need to be more confident.

    Nice work....not to gainsay my esteemed colleague Mr. Kendall, but speaking as "the modeller," I'd have to say it would take a lot of trial-and-error to translate those fenders into 3D forms that don't look goofy--right now I can get a general sense of what's intended, but the contours aren't really describing a clear form. I'd go back and work on the fender/headlight areas with an eye toward making the forms more descriptive.

    Ellipses are just one continuing head ache, aren't they.

    You might want to work on placing some ellipses in correct perspective. Remember that the minor axis of an ellipsis will be coincident with the perspective line of the cylinder. I suck at English, so this might explain it better: http://www.idsketching.com/thesketchlab/ellipses/

    Otherwise, I think they're coming along nicely.

    screw drawing wheels. seriously. unless youre being asked to design the wheels, just use some from a photo or draw over some. constructing ellipses in 3d every 5 minutes on design sketches is a giant time waste when you should be focusssing on surfacing. on the final glamour shots put some nice wheels in, but for sketching, assume everyone knows what wheels look like and focus on the important stuff.
