Today's effort - earphones or 'earbuds' to my friends across the pond :D

Quite scrappy and felt like a bit of an 'off' day. These are biro and papermate flair, scanned in and with some background/shading applied in Sketchbook Pro to add a little 'pop'.

Applying a one-hour time limit has the benefit of pushing me to produce several forms quickly, but the caveat of feeling like I'm rushing and that I could do better given more time. I want to upload everything up here unfiltered though so that a real reflection of where I'm at can be seen, even if I'm not happy with it!

Missed yesterday's upload because I cycled to work and as such had no spare time!

These are great. Strongest so far I think.

Thanks guys, I'm interested to hear why. Quality of exploration, sketch style, etc?

Visual interest, color, variety of form and shape, color, line. Kinda everything makes it good.

Bonus one from lunch today. Never sketched cars before, just trying to get a hang of the proportions and perspective!

Cars are a unique beast, but I always recommend people sketch them because it tends to improve all of your other sketching.

Hi all,

Wanted to render an earphone cup that I doodled during the working day, so that's what I did.

Below:

  • Original sketch (biro/papermate flair)
  • Rendered in sketchbook pro
  • Rendered in sketchbook pro with linework removed

Can't decide whether with or without the outline is better. Thoughts?

Cheers!

On the "gold" part of the headphones don't use black to add value, it makes it look muddy. Something like a dark orange would create a better looking rendering.

I always find that yellow is tough to add value too.

Hey, nice stuff. I like the one with the line work left in most. Makes it feel more expressive and dynamic.

I find all of the paint splatters distracting. I think this drawing would tell me more if the perspective showed more of the side. Here is a good headphone perspectives:
