Thanks Yo.
I got carried away with the pencil hatching, hate the look of it but here it goes.
These were cool in the 90s.

Nice!! Keep them coming! Check out Scott Robertson on Youtube! He has a great little sketching channel, and I think completing some of those exercises will help you draw through and really figure out the perspective.

Great progress since your first post!

A toaster I did for the #Weeklydesignchallenge in Instagram.
I wish I could justify an Ipad pro, this dull pen from the old pad takes some getting used to.
(boy, do I like to blame the tools..)

A sketch of my bike pump, and a redesign with a bit less organic style.

Hey, these are all pretty solid in terms of getting the idea across. My one critique is that I think your sketches could benefit from more contrast and lighting. For example, in that toaster sketch, the values of the top, right, and front side are all pretty similar. Pick your light source direction, which tells you which side is going to be the brightest/medium/darkest. Shade each side accordingly. If you're using markers, you can literally pick out 20% gray, 40% gray, and 60% gray, and use one for each side. Then add the more detailed shadows around components, like the knob, for example. I hope that's helpful! Keep it up.

I think this one (the Rexel) needs some heavy line weights on it to make it pop like the toaster. These last few have come a long way since the first ones! Get some toned paper to mix up the sketching medium if you're bored of white, thats what I did instead of the Ipad haha.

A quickie car based around Marc Newson's some years ago.
I had to photoshop the front which was out of whack, I'll be developing this one.

Thanks! I am trying to get back to form and pick up new techniques, having a self-imposed deadline to post daily helps, as do all the comments and seeing other sketchers. :D
