Rendering 2D Sketch

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

 

I want to increase some of my 2D sketching capabilities and thought I would start with some simple example.

 

So there is sketch attached below I want to render/shade in the way that it would decribe/reflect the shape introduced on placed aside cross section. I want to learn how to see it, feel it, do it.

 

I am perticulary interested both in : hand/manualy shading and software one. Because I use ordinary, simple, free to use tools as Gimp is, please take this into account:)

 

thanks in advance

Now, To render 2D picture is need some technical work,

 

Maybe you can draw in 3D, the software will help you to render in 2D.

the point is I want to have quick concept arts, rendered one before I launch 3D modeling. I picked up Gimp as my software of choice(GNU license nice thing), to put more details/quality in my hand sketches.

 

Hence, I am lost when it comes to make shadows, gradients and so on...

Ohh ok, I see the picture now. It is a handle for the tenon saw.

What you do is just, find a lighting direction. Break the handle into basic shapes and the just shade in the shadows.

 

Just do something like this. http://www.zurb.net/me110a/images/sphere.jpg

Just practice, doing it a few times and you will get it.

 

You can put another bound light from the ground surface to make it look realistic.
