Drawing with ARTBOOKS CHALLENGE #1 / Inkwork by Darren Quach

 

As a Product Designer,
I find plenty of inspiration in Sci-fi movies such as Star wars and Concept art sketches.
* You can discover Edward Eyth interview who created plenty of sketches and innovation for Back To the Future II, Disney, MARVEL… that inspire nowadays creation such as the kitchen robot !

Recently I asked you on Instagram stories if you have Artbooks at home.
As I do believe they are crazy boost generator of motivation and ideas !

And I had the idea to create a video about the Artbooks I have to share with you. 🙂
From there let’s study one of my favourite one from Darren Quach: INKWORKS.

Many Darren Quach’s sketches are inspired by animals

If you wonder where to find artbooks,
I shared in a previous article about
where you can find the Artbook corner
in your local library in this article.

I invite you to go there, sit and explore
these beautiful art and design books about
Cartoon, animation, video games and so on !

I know how my friend and student Antonio from Spain love books;
and I am pretty sure you will like this post ; ).

Do not sketch for the aim to study only, but have FUN !!

Like how I did previously with this
concept art engine sketch inspired by Darren Quach‘s work before.

I definitely can’t hide how much I am fan of his work !

To progress faster,
I recommend you to copy other artists,
and explore multiple of styles you like.

Then mix them so you can create your own, and keep improve it.

TIP:
You don’t have to copy 100% what you see.
Extract the elements to incorporate them in your own creation.

I personally like to import certain types of lines I could fine incomics, manga, fashion illustration into my industrial design sketches. So I can draw with emotion in my lines.

Have fun !

Cheers,
Chou-Tac
