Thedinomeister: Sketches And Renders

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I'm a first year ID student and I need some critiques on my sketches. I can see my problems but it would be helpful if you all could tell me what I need to focus on. My goal is to have design sketching skills equivalent to those of ACCD students by the time I graduate. I understand transportation design is an extremely competitive field but I still want to try, and I'm willing to work VERY hard to get there. Thank you so much in advance!

are you plannin on majoring in product design or transportation design?

 

youll learn to speed up while at school. (at least at ACCD)

 

AT ACCD

you honestly wont have time to draw for that long per drawing.

because youll be gettin about 10-20 pages per class.

and if u have full term that like anywhere from 50-100 pages on 11x7inches per week.

 

and especially product design.

the first couple weeks is juss pages of ideation sketches.

the teachers want to see your ideas!

not how refined your drawing is.

I'm focusing on Transportation Design.

 

Ok, I bought a stack of 11"x17" printer paper. I ordered a bunch of Indigo Blue prismacolor pencils and markers. I also have pastels (hard kind). As far as markers go, they are all Prismacolor: French Gray Set, and about 30 others that I accumulated since the fall semester started. I am expecting copic marker paper any day now. Also, I have 8x11 and 11x14 Bienfang Marker pads. I have a 4x5 Wacom Graphire Tablet and the Adobe CS3 design premium bundle.

 

So far I have gone through 400 pages of 8.5x11 printer paper and a bunch of Bic's while sketching my thoughts and ideas since November.

 

Oh, I also messed around with a trial version of Corel Painter and sketched these (w/ wacom):

very nice. keep at it.

 

 

ure latest painter stuff... is TOO MESSY.

the first one can be very stylistic.. but u need to refine it a bit

make it rough, but refined, cant really explain juss keep at it, and maybe u can come up wtioh a style u can use.

 

the second however.... looks like it caught on fire LOL

and burnt to a crispy charcoal like piece of metal.

how would I go about rendering some of the vehicles at the top of the thread? What are the most important things to know when rendering something with markers and pastels? etc...

first of all, I would like to say whether your wanting to go in to product design or transportation design, I would recommend you keep drawing every day I am a senior in product design and one of my biggest regrets is not drawing enough... and cant stress how many times I have been with potential clients and I can show them my portfolio and ...(I could have the best idea in the world...change the world kind of idea...) and they have looked past that and said (can I see your sketch book!)... from not much but some experience being able to accurately portray the vision (idea) in your head 9 out of 10 times meanings more to the potential client than the actual finished product... the majority of clients (employers) what to see how you work out problems, how you deal with any given circumstance, basically how you think on paper.. and if you are good and solving problem and can show it in drawings on paper, by the time that you graduate, whether your end up in product design or transportation design you will have companies look at you and hopefully giving you the recognition that is deserved. This is only my advice and a testament as to what i would change if i had to go back and do it all over again!! Take it as you will but keep drawing kid I see real good potential in you, if you keep up the hard work and strong work ethic. you will succeed.
