I'm finally starting a sketching thread. I've been getting lazy and rusty on the daily sketching so I thought I'd make a thread to actually document my sketching progress for feedback. Starting with 3 a week and building up to 1 a day as my skills improve and get faster.

The most recent 3:

A quick powerpoint doodle ( I saw an opening for a big electronics company that makes these a few days ago)

Practising clear materials and liquids. I’m also playing with different brushes in sketchbook to see what they all do.

A glass and cork pedant light. Still playing with clear materials on my Ipad.

Finished off the kitchen knives with some deep blue to make them pop.

There's been less sketches than a few a week leading into the end of the year :oops:

Timber speaker box and bent up legs. It was fun to use tan paper again.

First sketch of 2018! I've been hiking a lot while holidaying in New Zealand, so here's a quick outdoors jacket to get my hand used to using a pen again after the Christmas break. Keen to get back into it :D

002/365. Thinking about hammers with swappable heads and handles for adjusting weight and balance. I'm back from my holiday with some catching up to do.

Breakfast pot and pan scribbles. Note to self: sketching with a sharpie means I need a bigger piece of paper and bigger sketches

I could design bike parts all day every day! Having fun with profile views of a direct mount stem for my fox40 fork, without sharp points that you could bash your knees on during those :shock: moments.

Working out a style of arrow that I like. The top right is winning at the moment

I think the top right is much too complicated. Those center ones are working better. Think of it in context of a concept sketch. It should tell you direction but not take too much attention from the sketch.

Thats a fair call Yo, I got caught up in making them look interesting. I'll sketch something that I can use them on to see the result.
