Hi, I think this upload needs an explanation (if not an apology).

I haven't been sketching for quite a while and I am extremely rusty, been doing quite a bit of non-product design work. So I gather that a great way to push myself is to actually do a sketchaday challenge, so I feel pressure to improve.
Since I've had the guts to dish out criticism on other users sketches, I thought I need to man up and put my pen? where my .. mouth.. is? :?

Anyway, I figued if I upload a crappy thumbnail it can only get better from here on..

Ok, I'll try to be more diligent, I managed to scan it.
Old Pencil sharpener, I am going with the theme of "stuff I have knocking about in my desk".

The pencil sharpener is a huge jump in quality from the first two posts. Good stuff!

Agreed! Try some that are just black and white line work as well. Skip the color for a few posts.

Thanks guys, I will work on monochrome for a bit.
Doing a bit of warmup exercises at the moment to improve line work.

Great progress! Experiment a bit more with perspective and keep proportions in mind.

Random. Some bits of a weekly design challenge plus an ipad color study on walkie talkies and another toy car.
I'd like to get cleaner more consistent and homogeneous concept exploration pages.

I managed another skecth today. Car and astronaut (I am easily distracted).
I would like to get used to skecth in bigger size, all the previous sketches are thumbnail size, this one is A4 and I can get more detail although it's more difficult to get going.
Also I'd like to be better at defining surface details in sketches, I always end up heading for the 3d model quickly and I loose out on the potential of the exploratory sketchy phase.

More toy cars. I'm not a car person at all but find them fun to draw.

A double session, as I skipped yesterday.
Some kind of RC bubblegum pickup truck?
