At the next Paris Auto-show you will see the MINI Crossover Concept model, in this post I do not want to talk about its Design simply because I am more interested in its color sketches techniques used with great talent by MINI designers.
So look carefully how the talented and professional MINI designer used his ability in preparing the work to obtain such high quality result.
I would like to signal to you 3 key elements that contribute to this quality, and they are:
1. the perfect control of perspective
2. the good balance of gray scale applied colors with the warm and cool sides
3. the dramatic effect given by the use of “chiaro/scuro” technique, the depth of the sketches is given by the balance between the clear and dark areas
Naturally I could add other stuff like: the good outline work, the depth of the outline, the detailing, the good use of composition on page at so on…but we will do this together next time.
Now for those that want to reach this quality just try to copy those sketches! Try untill you get tired, you’ll see the difference later…
