Sketch Challenge 03: Speakers

Recommended Posts

Ok, lets make some speakers... and try not to make them square and wood ;)

These can be hifi speakers, car speakers or pc speakers, take your pick!

Wow! Nice!

 

uhuh...huhuuh..uhuuhuhuhuhuhuh...ehehheheh

 

 

Really looks nice- I wonder...should I buy a graphics tablet?

 

I found out I could afford a Wacom Volito with Pen ( USB), and some additional software for about 45€...it's A6, though- is this a no-no or a must-buy?

I wouldn't worry about needing a tablet.. if you are happy with markers so far, I would stick with that till you're a bit further in uni and have some money left to get a bigger intuos (a4 is the ideal size imho).

It's important that you know your traditional media, so I would try getting the maximum out of that first.

Hm..currently I can do absolutely nothing with markers...well..absolutely might just be a little too less...let's say it this way:

Sometimes I'd like to press Ctrl+Z ( or Y ) when drawing stuff with markers :D

The problem is, I know what areas have to be colored as a whole, but then, when it comes to those areas where there's supposed to be reflection of the sky, I don't know how intense this should be, and what color it should be exactly in order to maintain the car's colors....

 

Also, I was told I shouldn't use Copic Markers anymore but try AD-markers ( what a coincidence :D:D ).

sounds familiar :rolleyes:

i still like to sketch lines with traditional materials, cause i can handle it with more ease and accuracy. after finishing a line drawing on paper, i'll scan it in and render with painter, simply because of the magic 'CTRL+Z' which allows trial and errors. and for me, rendering in painter is much faster than with markers and pastel/chalks

Hm- I guess it's important to be good everywhere- just in case :rolleyes:

 

I think I just picked the wrong colors for my markers...

First, I took black and dark blue.

Now I took light grey, almost silver, then some light brown and light blue...but it just doesn't feel right, and the markers are too expensive to be bought in loads...that's why I thought of the Wacom, it costs as much as 12 or 13 Copic Markers...so, why not?

AD, a wacom tablet is nice but if you have an a6 (like me) it will be very hard to make smooth "curves".

 

I had a little idea for the speakers: ears. The elephant is kitsch but it would be better "more implicit". The other idea was a loudspeaker hung on a spring, in order to make the speaker jump when the sound is loud or with megabass.lol

retrokitsch, you know what I thinkof your work :rolleyes:

 

But a thing I couldn't help noticing: When megabass is on, the speaker will not jump vertically, but it will swing forwards and backwards...

Now I don't know about it exactly, but when I swing my headphones forwards and backwards, Mr. Doppler comes up and changes the way I hear it...you get what I wanna say? I think the sound is gonna be altered by the speakers changing their position

AD thanks that's right.

 

I made another try, just look the idea, because I tried to render like waikit, but... lol

 

The idea was "drops hung on a branch".

retrokitsch, cool idea, perhaps you can add some perspective linest to aid the viewer into understanding how things are coordinated with eachother?
