Quick footwear concept. The biro on the other side of the page came through on the markers, will make a refined sketch of this and try my hand at adding some textures to the materials.

Nice overall. When you do the overlay, try adjusting the proportions. I liquified your sketch a bit to get it there. You can print this out and overlay it.

Feels a bit rigid at the moment will try and get looser.

Side view is looking good. I'm glad to see you took the proportional advice. Same on the 3/4. Yes, try loosing those lines up a little. Try doing an overlay and see how loose you can make the lines and still have it read. Try to balance between abstract, calligraphic, and realistic.

Thanks Michael, yes will try an over lay of this :)

By the way, is it common practise in professional id to make a rough sketch then put into photoshop and re proportion? I always feel like I am somewhat 'cheating' when I do this hehe but on the other hand I think it would be daft not to use all the tools at my disposal...

In the mean time I have made another quick concept. Will refine after I've done the proposed overlay above^^

I think tweaking it a bit within reason is fine, especially if you use it to make your next sketch better. It is just another tool, I do it too. Maybe people considered markers cheating at some point :-)

2nd attempt at the 3/4 view. Lines could be cleaner, but wanted to get this finished. Not a lot of time this week.

Realising just how much difference uninterrupted, smooth and fast lines can make to the overall finish of a sketch. This one below is by no means an example of this lol. Not the cleanest of lines but I will work on it.
