Hey how do ya’ll go about showing a speaker grill in quick sketches, I have tried hatching/crosshatching but it looks weak. I started just putting a few dots in the opposing corners, but it still is weak. I’m sick of having a billion speaker call outs on my sketch pages. Any advice?
I think the easiest way is to get a piece of screen mesh, perforated metal, or even some textile mesh (sometimes I use the webbing from the strap on my messenger bag) and use a pencil to rub it the texture onto the sketch. I’ve also implied a speaker with a few dots of hatches…
Here are a few examples of different ways I’ve done it:
Warning, some of these there are about 7 years old:
