Try to draw your designs from different perspectives.

well then bike couriers carry cargo as they travel around the city, I guess it could be a carry-on as well.

Halocooter:

That could make for an interesting bag. A few things though:

-In the open view you have the buckles coming out of the webbing on the bottom of the bag. Normally a no-no because the plastic buckles will get really scratched up being on that bottom surface. You could have them coming out of binding that frames the front view to get them off of that bottom.

-You should flip the zipper on your flap (for the carry handle). Have it accessable from the outside so you can open it, then pull out the handle. The way yours is, you'd have to remember to open it to be able to access the handle while the bag is open, when it isn't very apparent that you'd need it. For example, you're carrying it with the shoulder strap and the flap zipper is closed like normal. Now you decide to switch to briefcase carry mode with the handles. You'd have to unbuckle the flap and unzip it from the inside to be able to get to that carry handle. Switch which side it's on, then it'll also be a cool "hidden zipper" detail look.

-The pen holders on the inside are a little off, unless they're AA battery holders. The ones that match the body color are good, maybe too long though. But the black ones don't have any space to put anything in short of batteries, a pen would then be poking into the pockets on that panel.

 

Aside from some details, nice effort. I do think it could be turned into a very nice looking bag with the right material choices. A big thing with bags are the details, stitching also. Will you have a matching stitch on the body binding or contrast? Same with the webbing. A body matching stitch on the black webbing will have a very different look than black on black. That will make a big difference.

Fun Sketch Topic, Halocooter - Your Sketches remind me of Duluth Trading Company. They have an awesome catalog that every product for sale in it is a rendered fineliner Sketch Like that with markers. Awesome! keep them coming. http://www.duluthtrading.com/ Here is a quick one that can be a upright roller or a wagon style for multiple bags or Children.

thomas0753 those are sweet sketches - i need a wacom tablet! good observation - i used to work for the company that owned duluth trading, but under the bucketboss brand - similar product. the watercolor renderings in the duluth trading catalog are a great resource for drawing softsided products for and one who needs a reference. keep on sketching.

Hey, Im Ewoud.

These sketchgroups are great. Ive been looking through the results of older sketchgroups and its going to be hard to keep up to the standard here.

Ive been having some fun sketching travel cases. CnC welcome!

Thathertz> nicely communicated sketch. love that bottom rendering!

 

halocooter> great sketches with nice detailing. definitely like your style

 

thomas0753 > that perspective view is odd, looks like it is tilted. maybe you should have add a shadow to show it is standing on the ground with 2 wheels

 

martinpix > i would make that lip/flap half open to communicate that 'flipable'. the corner form invites me to look under that corner. what's beneath?

 

lepain > nice ones. only the top right ellipse is odd
