Mini Walkthrough Of A Render
Posted 02 September 2004 - 04:36 AM
Rough Sketch and Sections.
I work in layers like a lot of designers here. The process starts off with rough sketches done here in Painter Classic. Dont worry about the line quality. As the sketch progresses, I find the forms that I like and then proceed to drop the opacity of the "scratchy line layer" to about 10% and sketch a layer on top with more precise lines. I use photoshop ellipses in Photoshop Elements here.
In many ways a wacom tablet is cheaper than a traditional rendering set complete with ellipses, markers, paper etc:

work in greyscale to design the form. Dont worry about color at this point and calculate how the light plays off of your surfaces. As a rule of thumb surfaces facing the light can be rendered close to white with highlights, surfaces that are parallel to the light rays are the darkest and surfaces facing down recieve bounce light from the floor. This is a way to start

Then I made another pass with the digital airbrush to strengthen the line work and bring accentuate reflections and shadows.

Nice stuff ! Really interesting to show the process of your sketching abilities!
It should be wonderful if you could post more of these works....!!!
I repeat again, great stuff!
Enjoy your day

I think that the relaxed feel comes from the quality of the stroke. Actually the whole relaxed feel is a little calculated on my part. I tend to draw very rough sketches to figure out a shape with a lot of sections etc. After I find the shapes I like I pick some lines that I want to put down.
Rough sketches help me to understand what is going on with the shapes and this helps me to render the values of the shape well. so even the "spontaneous" feel of a sketch can be calculated.
