We are planning on producing a series of 5 minute videos on quick sketching, I will sketch on a variety of topics in the series. The first one is a shoe of course, but feel free to suggest topics and comment in here.

nice work as usual.

only 3 questions-
1. can you post a scan of the final someplace? would be nice to see it larger/higher rez.

2. did you "design" while sketching or had you pre-planned the concept sketch or sketched out a practice version? just curious..

3. is this the normal speed you sketch at? I actually found it kinda slow, but for sure you've got great control.

R

4. Bonus question - did you find anything particular/interesting when watching the video back? I've never watched myself sketch and would imagine seeing from a different perspective (no pun intended), i would say "wow, didn't know i did that" or something...

Cool sketch. I agree with rk about the final scan, maybe insert the pretty scanned version above the video link, so viewers can choose which sketches they like and then watch them in process. Will more designers be adding? on this thread? or a separate thread?

Great SONG!

Thanks Guys. I will try to dig the original back up and scan it. The exercise is pure rapid viz, so the design is very simple. I did 2 or 3 warm up sketches to the song so I could get the timing down and then just went for it. They are each variations around a similar, blutcher toe theme.

The next one will be an mp3 player. Should be fun.

1_ dug out the original and scanned
2_ I had a general idea of what I wanted to do in my mind, and I did a couple of warm up sketches, but it is a pretty simple shoe, so it was easy to make a few simple decisions on the fly. I knew I wanted to do a cupsole with a blucher toe. You can se me making some decisions, like adding perfs, the little woven label, and those details in the cupsole at the last second.
3_ really? Slow? When you are doing it, the 4:39 seconds goes by a lot faster. This is quicker than I would typically sketch. It would normally take me about 15 minutes to sketch at this level with color and detail. I didn't even have time for stitches! A quick pen ideation, maybe faster.
