Product Design Course Sketches

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm Adam a product design student at the University of Leeds, this is my first post on the forum so steady on!

 

Sketching is the area that I am most interested in improving for my design work so I thought I'd show you some of my stuff for some constructive criticism. I've attached a link to my blog (attacking paper) in my signature which is a place where I dump all of my sketch work if you fancy taking a look

 

Here are some water bottle designs that I produced for a design module on branding and shape

 

The brands selected for these designs were Cath Kidstone, Lamborghini and Alessi I'll leave you to work out which are which

Cool- nice to see you are developing form. Quick trick- blur your eyes and see whether your sketches still read well. All the nice form dev you are working on gets lost in the uniform lineweight.

Thanks for the feedback Parel

 

Would you suggest going around the exterior lines with a fineliner? I was experimenting with contour lines in this project because I don't rate my shading ability to convey form

Make photocopies of your work if you are not yet confident and lay down some shading using the length of your lead to create shadows and value. Ground plane shadows wiil help as well

The things that usually stops me from putting shading down is usually the feeling that I'm going to balls up what I've done

how I havn't thought if photocopying and shading is beyond me

Thanks Parel!!
