Talking The Chickenmobile!

This will be the vechicle that I will own when I am old enough to drive and when I am rich enough to afford. Basically this is going to be a monster truck american school bus with several cool features that I alrady have in mind, my pimp/chicken mobile :bandit:
This is my first ever vechicle and its already proving quite challenging.
At the moment I am working on the front of the bus:

ha i was wondering when your chicken theme was gonna move to automobiles. btw random fact that may be of interest: you can buy a 2 year old school bus from the canadian government for around $2000 canadian. or so ive heard im not sure. apparently one of their provinces has to replace their schoolbuses every two years or something so they sell them cheaply. not sure this is true just what ive heard, maybe someone from canada can confirm/deny?

Element_Khaos: Cool, thanks for that info.... It's a shame monster truck tires are roughly $5000 a piece

Sav1989: Hehe thanks I actually eat chicken all the time and I'm not really a fan of rubber chickens, I just think they go very well with just about anything

blomkaal: I sure am busy, had 3 exams in the last 2 days and still found time to work on this a bit more

the front window should be much less round IMO. more square and also it should be bigger, ie: thinner metal surrounding it.

Damn, that's some serious commitment! Sometimes I find it hard to just start up Maya (well, turn on my monitor actually, Maya is mostly running 24/7 ) when I get home from work sometimes!

As EK said, the corners of the front window needs to be sharper, also, I think that the front window should curve a bit more out towards the front, if you get what I'm saying... It just looks a bit to planar...

Out of curiosity and fading memory I googled for images of old school buses. Links are below.

http://www.attention-to-details.com/...-schoolbus.jpg

http://www.vanbregt.nl/Dag_10-12/12.%20Schoolbus.jpg
http://www.arcsoft.jp/en/support/dow.../schoolbus.jpg

This one is an old schoolbus, but it could make a pimp/chicken mobile...

If you'll excuse me now I have to try to get the old schoolbus flashbacks out of my head...

After looking at your ref, nevermind what I said in my last post Looks like you've got it more or less spot on

great work, chicken man, hehe,

if you like, you can go with a more cartoonish look, like making the roof curve up, and maybe add some hotrod stuff,
just a suggestion,

i like your ref. it sure would look great in 3d,
