  1. I do animal drawings as well. You don't need to have the same style, but I think you should practice looking at what makes the bigger picture. Start by lightly blocking in the shapes as I mentioned earlier. By doing so, you arent just drawing what you see on the outside, you begin to understand why it looks the way it does. You should also take a look at animal skeletons and draw those out in your sketch book.

    Sketch Challenge July 2011

    @Will The only funkiness I see, is the shadow on the egg. What actually needs to be redone is the idea of uploading a clean sketch. Take the photo with either a better camera or a scanner, keep still to avoid blur, and maybe resize your images so its doesn't take up the whole screen. @Crichton Can you pinpoint to inaccuracies? Will's sketch seems to be 1 point perspective with ellipses that seem to be spot on. And the linework, I can't judge due to the blurriness of the image.
  4. These are all very nice, but you are drawing them in an illustration style. Try drawing them in a more product design ideation style. In other words, instead of drawing the outline of the animal, try to identify the basic geometric forms. For example, the head of the swan is a spehere, the neck is multiple cylinders and so forth.

    Hi guys, First off, I got Waikit's approval to promote my new site called "ingredients." So what is ingredients? Ingredients is a daily (12AM - 1159PM) sketch challenge site where you will be given specific design constraints to design and ideate with. Unlike most challenges where you are given a product and problem and is up to you to decide what it's features are. With Ingredients, you will be given the product, the problem, AND the feature you must use. (Other ingredient types will be introduced at a later time) The first ingredient is available for preview on the site and you may start posting your ideas starting July 4th, 2011. New ingredients will be posted at 10pm the previous day, so that participants may get a preview before the next challenge. Making your brain work in a new way. Every participant is given the exact same product, problem, and feature to implement. Due to this, your concept will vary on how you mix and implement these ingredients together. For example, your ingredients maybe a shoe(product), boring/time consuming(problem), and wheels(feature). Person A may look at these ingredients and think I'll design rollerblades! Person B may think rollerskates. But Person C, may see something unique and come up with the idea for Heelys. The only rule is that you MUST USE ALL the ingredients provided for that day. Ingredients site: http://dailyingredients.tumblr.com/ How to Participate Simply click on the UPLOAD link at the top to submit your idea/design. Image Size Due to tumblr restrictions, your images cannot exceed 500px wide. Please resize all images to the correct width when posting.

    Feedback Please

    Click to enter, logo is cool, but the page isn't very appealing. Once I enter the page, the icons for creation, projects, and personalia are a bit ambiguous. They all look the same, and they remind me of trashcans... or a bird. Click on creations, your text is "justified," this looks odd, what was your reasoning behind this? I dont want to have to click on a blank box to see what the project is. And because it's blank, it looks like an error and the images aren't loading. I'm not really sure what brandmark means, which makes me wonder what the difference between the 3 sections are. Theres alot of blue... not really feeling it. Its a bit frustrating that I need to click many times to actually get to see the content. Think of it as a first draft and try again. If you are coding this yourself and aren't very good, try looking into free portfolio sites, theres alot out there. For example: carbonmade.com

    Since it is current, existing items, it might be be better for the poster Crichton, to have a few examples of the challenge. Simply link some photos so people can attempt to draw it. That way its less work for participants which will be easier to participate.

    Are the cement blocks part of your design? Because they are far too distracting and takes the focus off of your projects and onto the blocks.

    Good job in adding tire, but now im sure you can see it as well. The wheels look really off, as well as the tire. Also, you have no wheel wells, so although u have drawn the tire, it looks nothing like a wheel that is part of a car. It just looks like a flat drawing slapped onto the side of the car. Finally, it's a common style / technique I see that even I am guilty of using. But unless your wheels are truly sticking out from the side of the car, the wheels wouldnt show up as you have drawn it. Basically, fix the wheels and your car sketches will be taken to the next level.
