'sketchy' Sketches

Recommended Posts

Guest kpax

Hey i havent been sketching for about three months now, i saw the watch sketch session

and decided to get sketching.

Im looking for some C&C on the sketches, the perspective is questionable and some are overdone but that will

improve as i get back into it.

One thing i would like to change about my sketching is a reduction in lines, to achieve a more fluid look

Can anybody share some techniques on how they may have achieved a more fluid sketching style

 

These are the first of done in 3 months !

Thanks for any help

You have a good amount of potential, a couple product design classes to teach you a little more on the basics, prespective, rendering, techiniques, etc. and youll be good. One thing i would suggest is structuring out ur sketches with a pencil or something, yunno perspective lines that make sense, and the idea that everything is a basic shape. You tend to only indicate shadow, shape, and lighting. I think a design class would really benefit you a lot. It does seem a bit dodgy with beginning classes and such, but if you dont start out learning them, your stuff will always look awkward. Foundation skills ARE important, many people think they dont have to take beginning classes; they're too good for them... But take them, even if your not learning anything, a second round could only benefit you.

Anyways, practice makes perfect. If you're serious and determined about this stuff, you will succeed.

LOL ok good luck

As far as the sketching goes, theyre fine as initial ideas and development sketches in terms of style but there isnt any development on your page. Youre not exploring the boundaries (what sketching is for in design) and you ve only come up with different shapes!(So it seems) What about designing the product rather that designing the sketches! Look at close ups of the strap fixtures, the clock hands, how do yoou change the settings/ battery? Adding little thunmbnails of these features will make you much better at skecthing different views and getting whats in your head down onto paper!

 

Keep it up though...looks promising!
