This is a great concept. And I actually like how you’re presenting it. It gives a bit of depth to the line sketch, like you’ve just added a simple gradient to the background. The sketches themselves look pretty great. The grill work on #4 is nice, but it feels a bit a awkward towards the rear. Looking forward to following your progression.
Haha, a beautiful mistake?
Yea i think the attention to detail in #4 really pops it out.
Yea, i also was thinking the rear looked a bit funky, but its great to get confirmation on that!
Thanks, and I also look forward to learning more from you.
I am pretty surprised with the quality of these 2 sketches. (Btw, they aren’t the same car) Well first off, I stay far away from markers as I can, cuz it is extremely difficult for me to use them… which is actually why I should practice more with them! But, aside from that, I am fairly pleased with these 2 sketches. I spent some quality time on these 2 and I think it shows. Would love some feedback on these 2 and how they compare with the previous sketches.
So cute! When I first started on this sketch, I was afraid it would turn out hideous. But I just kept at, drawing lightly to figure out what kind of design to do. I’m pretty happy with the end result and I think it has a Nissan cube like feel to it.
Definitely your best sketches yet. Take your time and sculpt on the page… and the markers seem to be helping you to breath some more life into them. Try to thing of sketching forms more than sketch lines. Sometimes it helps to use a 10% greay marker to actually sketch with then come back with pen lines on top. Or use the side of a prisma pencil instead of the tip.
Can you elaborate a little bit more on sketching forms instead of sketch lines? I’m guessing that you mean to think of the entire form of the subject of interest as to just throwing down lines… but a clearer understanding will be great. Also, what are some exercises I can do for sketching forms?
That is what practice will do. Keep up the volume. I knew someone that kept a stack of paper and some markers on his kitchen table. Everyday when he woke up he would put the coffee on and do at least one sketch before breakfast. If you can do that almost everyday, that is 300+ sketches right there.
