Re: 21st Century Portfolios

I used my sketchbook to land one job. It's the best think in my opinion.

Yep!! Is there a book specifically on how to make scaled car models? The ones they make at Automotive Design School?

Re: Sketching to the next level?

Your ellipses are looking much better. Try to make your straight lines straighter. They have a wobbly feel to them. Learn to sketch lines to a vanishing point. That will help get the shapes be in perspective and also help you with short and long lines. I tend to use my wrist for small lines but my e...

Re: What's your favorite design movie/documentary?

Not design but THE WYETHS: A FATHER AND HIS FAMILY is an amazing documentary!

I saw Helvetica and enjoyed it but didn't know there were any more documentaries like that.

Re: Job Titles and the Working World

In my 30+ years of working, titles might denote pay grade but are useless in most circumstances especially in the creative field. They can be used to crush you but in most cases this is ego driven. If someone has a good idea, my top level boss listens. even if that person is a "Lower" level. A lot o...

Re: Sketching to the next level?

Re: Sketching to the next level?

Robby-roy's post is pretty important to learn because ellipses and cubes are building blocks for objects. For instance, if you set a wheelbase for a car with ellipses, then you can use the box to find other proportions. If you use the cube then you can draw the ellipse etc. Sketch-A-Day posted this ...

Re: Sketching to the next level?

The thing that stands out to me is your ellipses. I made these images a while back to show what happens when the ellipse moves away from your eyeline. Image 01 Image 02 This image shows how the minor axis is always oriented. In most instances, the minor axis always goes to your VP. Image 03 Just som...

Re: 2014 Corvette

ANYTHING is better than the old vette. That super ugly blocky rear end is so lame!
The designer of that should be flogged!!

I'm liking the direction of the new Stingray.
