  1. Jimmy, from the sounds of it, you aren't very serious.


    If you truly wanted to start a proper company, you'd put in the appropriate money to hire the proper people and pay them for their investment into the unknown - this sort of spec work is rarely a good solution to find real talent. You get what you pay for, and in this case, that isn't much...


    Best of luck, but I would strongly recommend you reconsider your proposition.

  2. "If we both think exactly the same, one of us isn't needed here." - on design team diversity.


    "Being good is harder than being original." - actually a paraphrase, I think it's Corbu originally.


    "Less, but better." - That's Dieter Rams, but I liked the Einstein one above about simplicity; same idea.


    "I didn't have time to write you a short letter, so I wrote you a long one instead." - some old author, I'm too lazy to Google. Same intent as above, it's really hard to make things simple and effective, so we tend to make them overly complicated.


    "Any product that requires an instruction manual is poorly designed." - a saying we use in design school. Be intuitive.


    Stay awesome.

  3. It depends a lot on what you're looking for in a logo.


    CorelDRAW is a vector program like Adobe's Illustrator, which is commonly used for logo design. Some people swear by Adobe Photoshop because although it's vector tools are weaker, it has other benefits in the raster end of things.


    Adobe products tend to be really expensive, though, so if you've already got Corel you're best off using that and saving the money. They results won't be too drastically different.


    I mean, you can use MS Paint if you'd really like, or draw it on paper and scan it in.


    Stay Awesome,


  4. I don't see any reason why you couldn't achieve similar results in Sketchbook, but a tablet is highly advised.


    If not, draw with good ol' fashioned pens and paper and then scan it.


    You can find some excellent drawing tutorials by Spencer Nugent over at IDsketching. It's not necessarily Sketchbook, but drawing is drawing; the program is more personal workflow preference than anything.


    Stay awesome

  5. Looks good!


    It seems from the other sketches that you can cover a fairly wide range of styles which is beneficial; everyone has a different look they prefer. If you're going to school for this sort of thing you'll probably pick up that certain professors like certain styles - sometimes you can use this to your advantage.


    The perspective on the wheels and things look mostly spot on, but on a few the car body geometry is a little bit lopsided. Minor things, keep sketching and working the little kinks out. You seem to be figuring it out, there is a difference between what I assume are older and newer sketches.


    I'd say you're on your way for portfolio pieces. The website might be pruned a bit (taking out older, weaker sketches etc.) and perhaps professionalized (statements like "That's all folks" seem a wee too casual).


    Keep sketching, you're on your way.
