One of the younger designers who is working with me asked me "what software" I used to create one of the concepts I was presenting to the client :lol: that particular sketch was all analog, just like this one. Sometimes it is just better to break out the markers and pencils... and yes, that little chunk to the right is a piece of white pastel! Sketch 234 for the year: smart home remote.

Always with the under lays. Takes the pressure off.

Hey this is great to see. What sort of paper are you using? I find the normal copier paper kinda difficult to see through.. And then then the more transparent layout paper i find doesn't take the prisma color pencils very well ....

Definitely. It usually takes me 2-3 overlays to get to a design i like enough to do a clean sketch. I just use copier paper. I don't need to be able to see through it too much. There are different weights so you can try a slightly lighter weight bond paper.

Me too. I did the orange one first and after working on it for 30 minutes I felt I could do better but I wanted to see it through. In the light of day I had to do another one so I worked up that pencil sketch... I thought the form could be a little more interesting, showing two chambers, and it also felt right to sketch a pencil sharpener all in pencil. :-)
