Some early sketching

Some early sketches in my 1 year project.
Shoes will be manufactured in 2 sample pairs at a local factory.

Plz click images for larger view.

Any comments on form will be appreciated. Next step will be 3D visualization both on drawing and in 3D. The sole will be made in CATIA and then printed out in a Rapid Prototype machine.

very beautiful, whats the medium though, it looks like conte to me, or coloured pencil. Very nice
