Yo!
One of my hobbies is to design cars.
Used to sketch a range of things, mostly Anime.  Where im from, Cameroon, that's what most kids grew up watching. Went from Japanese cartoons to cars after playing arguably the best racing series on console...Gran Turismo. Was to addicted to the game thus addicted to cars and decided to implement my artistic talent on them...The results are in the pic below.
Now all of the work you'll see started out on paper. Trash gets filled up with paper in a series of trial and error, then once i am satisfied i scan the drawing on computer. Finally i use MS Paint to finish the job. When i stop being lazy i'm going from Paint to Blender or AutoCAD to give it a pop
Anyways MAYBE ill make ill make Transportation Design my career? Don,'t know. A number of opportunitiies been popping up and I am not sure which route i want to take. Here's the work for you to critique and so on:

Like it the1st time i drew, i thought it looked good. With time and experience i thought it was ugly as F***:

Latest work, tiny stuff i still have to finish:

Really cool designs man. But why do use paint?  and do you use a tablet for your work or just the mouse?
I suggest getting something like Paint Tool SAI or some Open source programs like GIMP (similar to photoshop) or Inkscape(for vector graphics).
It might really improve thequality of the finish on your work.

 Lol yeah that's definitely on my to-do list. 
I downloaded GIMP about a month ago, the interface is making me go nuts lol :P
I might take graphic design next semester, i'm not sure. Eitherway it should help me get in tune with these softwares which i have ZERO clue how to use... kind of lazy about it too won't lie :P

Ghettoguru did you see a Fight Club...? There is a scene with Tyler and random guy. Tyler has pistol pressed to this guy's head and says something like "what do you love doing? If you won't start it tomorrow I will find you  and I will kill  you, I  have your ID"  I think that you should  have pistol pressed to your head because I also like to draw and I think that you have HUGE TALENT! Or maybe I am wrong and you are doing it for a living?
And...GIMP is very easy, I think that taking class course will be waste of time. You can learn by yourself  and uncle google much faster. You must be just lazy ass :>

LOL yeah SpiNNer I need to work on being less complacent.
As for what I do for a living, I took almost 2 years off school and I'm about to start college. I also work retail on the side.
