To be a design manager means to help designers’ team requests to be accepted by the Product Project Team so that the final result will be satisfying.
In Car Design, where projects development is really complex, Design Management strategy and tactics are very important to get what Design is looking for. The Design Project Manager is the link between designers team and rest of company team (engineers, product planning, purchasing, marketing, at so on).
In this short video I try to give some usefull infos about this topic.
In my life as designer I saw several times the Undercut in Car Design Contest. Generally the victim is a very talented car designer who is very young, she/he needs expirience and this is the main problem causing the mistake.
In my video I explain how this can happen and what to do to contrast that risk.
today I have the pleasure to publish an excellent drawing tutorial done by designer & teacher Michele Leonello. The Porsche marker tutorial has everything right to show all the steps to start a good car sketch and end it up with some colors for a brilliant final result.
The first 3 drawings show the first 3 steps which are concentrated on : proportions, linework & tone value base (the light gray marker). It is the best way to block in the overall composition.
Now let’s see the last 3 and final drawings to discover the final result.
As you can see Michele added all value tones in Gray to show depth and volumes (surfaces), he also added the warm and cool values to show how surfaces turn to the light or in shadow, few extra details (tail lights and brakes) and some black to push the drawing in its contrast to make of it a punchy one.
At the end he refined the linework to make it crispy in some areas, final touch the white light spot with white guache on the glass which is also the focal point area.
I hope you enjoied it, now try to do it yourself and post on IG at #lucianobovereview I will give you a feedback.
