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 🙂
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.
Todays topic in our DESIGNtalk is about Scolarships, Masters & Online car design courses.
Some of you asked me to talk about those topics and here I am with my technical analysis. Scolarships give you a great opportunity to be in any good design school without paying for it. With a scolarship tuition is offered or partially offered. In order to apply you have to get info via design schools websites and follow their instructions.
Your application portfolio will be the key element to be selected. It is a hard talent competition and for this reason you have to give the best of yourself in terms of presentation and talent. It is about your skills level.
Master programs in Universities or Design schools can be very useful but be carefull because to become a car designer most of times a Master is not enough. In this video I explain why.
Online car design courses are very positive because they give you the opportunity to find a way to exercise and learn a speciphic topic with a dedicated online teacher. It is a way to invest little money to improuve on your own your drawing skills.
Monochromatic car sketching can be very useful because in a little time we can sketch many ideas in a very clear and professional way. So, i decided to make a monochromatic car sketch tutorial to show you how it can be done.
This is what you need to make your drawing: black soft prismacolor, Cool Gray1 – 3 – 5 markers & a Black markers. Enjoy the video!
