Today it is really hard to find the famous good old Vincent Vellum paper we used in school.
So, searching I found a “similar” paper made by Canson, it is called Calque and it is a tracing paper.
Yesterday, during my online interactive course, I tried it using the same old good Viscom technique we used in school (working on both sides palying with the transparency). This is the result and honestly it is not bad.
I started a new Online Interactive Sketching Cars Course that is held every Thursday on Google Meet. Several people are already working with me to improve their skills and prepare for a design school admission. Some participate as design students to correct some of their mistakes and I am there to help them sketching with them and checking their sketches giving constructives feed-backs. The objective is to improve your skills and understand well the 3 dimensional car design developement on a main well proportioned volume or shape.
If interested please write to me via email (or via the contact on this website) and I will answer to you explaining how to do to be part of it.
here a video tutorial I made during last week live on my Youtube channel. It was nice to sketch with my music channel in the background (yes me playing my electric guitar), draw cars starting from a white marker pad paper and using my pens, markers & color pastels by Prismacolor.
Cool to interact with you and going step by step about what I was doing with my tools. Soon I will do it again, so stay tuned 🙂
Tracing a car sketch or any sketch is an opportunity to improve that sketch. You can improve its perspective, its line quality or its design.
In this video I show how I do.
a front view perspective for this car sketch. Not an usual view seen the angle I used, but for sure very dynamic. I used a black ball point pen for the outline, I used 2 cool gray tones markers for shading and a black felt tip pen for the last line tune up.
