When I look at portfolios, to give a feedback, I often see lots of sketches with too many details. If you decide to draw all details on each sketch you risk losing the “ideation feeling” or that right mood that will bring you to find an interesting proportioned car sketch.
For this reason, I made a car sketch tutorial to explain and show how to just have fun looking for new proportions before thinking about design and details.
In other words, do not close yourself to fast into a styling mood. Proportions come first!
Remember that every week I will give you homework to do, you will upload your homework done and I’ll critic or draw corrections and also write some comments to help you understand better your mistakes and how to improve.
Don’t wait, take advantage of this opportunity, enroll fast 😉
Michele Leonello is an expert Car Designer (former Alfa Romeo designer) and also one of best SPD Design school teachers in Milano Italy.
Michele made this great step by step marker car sketch tutorial to clearly explain his own technique and methodology, so here I am presenting it to you because it might be useful to understand and of course exercise!
Sketching free-hand showing excellent skills & talent is extremely important to be a designer.
In a Design Process, to develop a project, sketching is the first important step to make, drawing on paper our ideas (ideation stage or brainstorming step) will give any designer a passional and fun way to look for ideas and also to do it in a more efficient way in terms of timing. If we know how to draw it will be easier to see on paper our ideas.
Any project has its Design Process and Design Planning (how long will it take to make the project according to company’s time to market plan); to perform correctly every step of this process has a given time that we (designers) must respect.
You understand that if you do not sketch well or think that you can easily jump steps to go directly to sketch modeling you are making a big mistake! The reason is simple: it will take you a lot longer to respect the Design Process Timing (specially in Car Design).
