EDIT: This thread was originally called "Tech Fashion". Rather than starting a new thread I just renamed it.

Reposting this from the "Projects" forum since it's not really as such.

I've been working with a fashion designer here in Boston that did a 3D printed dress, thinking about future 3D printed fashion accessories. It got me thinking about fashion in general, specifically athletic Fall wear, and techwear. So here's what I came up with. The challenges were; how to fit 3d printing into a clothing line that people would want, and how to integrate technology into clothing.

I wanted to design something that could be used as athleticswear when riding a bicycle (something I do often in the city), while at the same time being acceptable to wear all day at an office or to semi-casual meetings. I also tried to design something with an eye towards being gender-neutral.

Loving these sketches. I think it would be stronger to flush out 3-5 complete outfits, maybe with different themes ie: workday, weekend, date night, summer vacation, winter break...

Very good sketches. Did you use sketchbook pro by any chance? Personally, I would add some variation to the linework to add visual interest and some dynamism to the figures.

Thanks for the comments all. I use Photoshop.

I haven't drawn in a long time. After getting turned down from a job offer because I don't have enough digital art/realizing I have hardly any new design work in my portfolio, I'm going to start doing a sketch a day. Hopefully committing to this in a public forum will help :)

First drawing after getting back into it. I decided to do fashion in keeping with the theme. Tomorrow will be something different. The idea behind this was snowboarding/biking gear for the winter. I hated how my arms would always overheat, and how there was always a seam between my vest and my pants, letting in cold air.

Time: 1 hour.

Daily Drawing: September 3rd. Time: About an hour.

I feel like it needs a lot more contrast, now that I'm done with it.

Tomorrow I will do a more traditional ID sketch.

Is it me or should the title be changed to Sketch a Year?

I suppose I deserved that. This was originally another thread for just the images above called "Tech Fashion", but rather than starting a new one I simply renamed it.

Anyway, today's sketch came out pretty shitty. I should have picked something less complex than a stroller, and used a photo reference or something. Tomorrow I will do another physical product in the ID style.

EDIT: September 7th, 2015. Not a lot of time to do this since I was out all day, but I'm posting to keep the trend going. Tomorrow I will try this exercise again, or something similar. 20 minutes

This is actually a WIP but I've been out of touch the past couple days so I'm just keeping the meme going...
