Sketching on paper comes first!

Dear friends,

on my last post “Cars sketches on paper still important in digital world”¬† I tried to explane and convince you about the importance of learning how to draw cars by sketching correctly on a white paper and a pen or pencil. Even if today we have virtual reality technology we cannot and do not think that virtual reality will accellerate our process of learning how to draw cars.

To sketch cars and render them we must work hard on a white paper and with our free hand! Sweat on paper!

I posted my article on LinkedIn website, where I have an account profile, by surprise many people from real design world (designers, design studio managers, ex students, design teachers…) commented positively to my post. Everybody agree with this position¬† draw and render cars using paper, colors, and hour free hands. ONLY later we can concentrate on new tools like Photoshop or Paint to pass to a more complex level.

So, draw draw draw!

    Yes, Photoshop does help with sketching. I'm currently teaching my niece about it – if only you knew how good she is with sketching, you'd be amazed with her talent. She even drew Barbie's pink car!
