I do not have an industrial design degree so I didn't get a formal education in design.
Hence I have a few (many) questions about sketching, if you would indulge me.
1. Do industrial designers use a slanted drawing table like architects? Why do we use them? Do you use them or do you sketch on a normal horizontal desk?
2. Do you draw standing up or sitting down? Do you use a stool with a back? When you want to sketch for hours how can you draw standing up?
3. When sketching do you place your hand on the paper or does it have to be floating above the paper?
4. Do you tape the paper to the table when sketching so the paper wouldn't move?
5. I saw the GM sketching video and I learned a lot from it. What is velum?
6. Do you spend more time sketching or prototyping? Architects cannot prototype, per se, but we can. So do you spend your time working on your design in 2D on paper or do you start modelling instead?
