Hi Everyone,

This is my first post in this forum. I'm currently a second year student in Industrial Design at AAU.

I'm here to learn new sketching techniques as well as improving my skills. Please share your thoughts on my work.

I saw this sigma camera during my trip to Japan. I'm intrigued by electronics, especially cameras, and I was in Japan so I had to visit some of the electronic stores in Tokyo. I came across this model in one of the stores. I liked this model not only because its a compact portray cameras but also because the design is very unique compared to other camera in the same segment.

I like that you are posting frequently, Sumistha_Das. A high level of volume is necessary to improve. Try to sketch every day for at least 1 hour.

Hi Yo,

Thanks for the feedback. Here are a few sketches that I did in last couple of days. Does these sketches have enough volume?

What time of metal finish is it? Matte black finish, stainless steel, chrome?

Hi Sumistha,

For a 2nd year BA student I will say you are very good at sketching. The way to get good at this is to keep doing more of them, repeating and improving every time. Your colored pencil sketches are very good, keep working on the details. It is when the eye focuses and the sketch still looks realistic it becomes a very powerful sketch. Because the eye has a fairly small area of focus, adding only a few very sharp details, highlights, material indications, will make the sketch look more realistic. I can't tell that there is metal in the sketch, if it is a black chrome or piano black high-gloss plastic. I have no experience drawing black chrome but because it will absorb less of the color relative to black paint I imagine that it will work to add a hint of a cold color in parts where it will reflect the sky (say a Pantone 7672) and a warm color like a light mars red or sand color for the ground reflections. The line drawings in your third post are very expressive, and because of the perspective the shapes are well readable. A lot of your other sketches appear quite flat. Keep posting!

Black metal finish but looks like I could communicate with rendering :|

Thank you so much for detailed feedback. Everyday I'm trying to learn something new and trying my hands on material rendering.

Posting one more headphone drawing, please take a look at it and critic.

Thanks

Nice, you got the chrome down to a T. I see no problems here.

Not bad. A few things to think about. Should the handle be larger in comparison to the body or perhaps the body slimmer? Is the dark area a compartment for debris? How might it come off? Can it be simplified? Vacuums are often around a lot of dust and dirt so every nook and cranny is a dirt trap.
