I gotta say, that perspective is pretty dead nuts on and the line quality is really tight in that sketch. (I ordered the book too)

When I do those 3/4's, I usually start with a photo of a last as an underlay. It seems to work. If I don't have a last, I just take a pick of a shoe that is a similar proportion, it might be cheating, but it works.

^^


and thats how the shoemaster software (developed by Clarks) works, (kind of).

First of all, you digitise your last and then you design directly onto it.

I had some training on this as a footwear student, that was years ago. But I'm about to undertake a freelance project with a company that uses it for orthopaedic footwear. I'll let you know how Iget on.



Do any of you guys design directly onto vac forms out of interest? Some Factories I'v worked in love it because they can take the standard straight off your design without misinterpreting it

I've sketched on vac forms as well as tapped up lasts, especially for a tricky asymmetrical pattern, it can be hard to communicate it in 2d. With the tape up a pattern engineer can un-tape and flatten it to make the pattern as well.

hey YO
How cool of you to link that page with your ideas/info. on perspective, etc. I know a lot of people really appreciate that. It's nice to see someone sharing their knowledge and experience with their fellow peers.

cheers! :D

hi!

Yeah proportions are so important.I think is the base.

When i was student the most important theme to learn in the 1st year was to get the best proportions drawing a lot of lasts.

And i know the Shoemaster program,,when i was working for Pikolinos (spain) they used it,,but just for pattern cutting,,for design we used the typical markers.

regards from london.

Could you....

Find an online retailers website, one where you can rotate the shoe image. Rotate it to the angle you need then screengrab it and plonk it in photoshop. You can then trace it to make a template. Top views you can get on some other websites. Over the years I've built up quite a catalog of templates. I've also got quite a collection of ready-to-go traced zips, buckles etc.
