Started on a new sketch. This is just rough.. I find it hard to share sketches like this. Anyway, will use this to overlay. Would love to get to a place where my 1st drafts aren't all messy!

Follow up from yesterdays sketch. Still pretty rough but I wanted to try and get 1 out first time rather than continually having to do overlays., Could be better i guess.

Hey, the watch case is concave or convex? To me the right side of the watch looks like concave and the left side of the watch looks like convex or may be I am Hallucinating :D

Watches was tougher than I thought it would be. Ok on to next subject I think.

Ok next topic - impact drivers

First one, trying to get loose but not there yet.. Found this tough and outcome could be a lot better but progress isnt a straight line i guess.

ice sketch. One thing to think about is your perspective strategy. The perspective you choose should be very intentional and based on being both informative and persuasive. Because this perspectives main focus is the chuck of the drill, I don't think it is as informative as it could be. unless you were working on an innovative new chuck mechanism design, in which case you might want the focus of the sketch to be that. if not, I would recommend tipping the design back toward a traditional side view with less of the front visible.

250gb,

One thing i notice (i may just be missing it) but you don't seem to build your perspective "boxes" and then sketch inside in order to get your portions and perspective right. This can sometimes be a mistake when working on improving sketches, some of my former students would see people like Yo and Blaster and others and say "they dont do it that way" not realizing that at one time they did but after many years they eventually simply see the "box". Scott Robertson has some great tutorials on this. I also had a chance to interact with a designer who was an amazing sketcher and took classes from Syd Mead, and when i asked him how he did it so naturally his response was "he made us at times do nothing but sketch ellipse for hours.....20,30,45,75 deg."
Also do your original sketch and then do a minimal of 3 sketches as overlays (dont change the design ) just change your line style and tweak perspective

This is very true. I always draw the box, just a lot of times it is in my mind vs on the page now.... It took 20 years to get it like that.

Been filling my brain with scott robertson techniques past 5 days and practising his inside out method. Also I bought his book on rendering. Thanks for the heads up!
