I sometime receive email from aspiring designers who wonder how to start drawing in 3D.
If you also may wonder the same question. You also may face this situation:
Whatever you draw looks flat. Even though you may use a reference product from real life or a picture, your sketch end looking flat like a « Crêpe ».
Why ? Because you try to draw on paper that is in 2D, so your brain visualise in 2D as well.
But there is also an other explanation. It’s the lack of technique. In other words, your product has no structure in your mind. So your imagination seams to be « cloudy ».
You may think that you will never be able to sketch, because you can’t even get any clear picture in your mind. That makes sense.
But once again. Learning how to sketch has no link with Innate talent. It’s all about acquiring the right skills. To do so, today I though making a series of 3 videos to help you start visualise cubes in 3d – and drawing them from different angles !
To get that fast, I will ask you dedication and implementation. We are gonna go through the CUBE MANIA CHALLENGE ! IN other words, you are gonna draw a LOT of cubes following the techniques I’ll show you. They are pretty simple that anyone can understand (even if you are a kid).
So take a pen, some paper. Don’t ask yourself too many question.
Watch the videos, and at the same time as me, “JUST DRAW IT ».
PS: To get started in best condition, I recommend you to go through the Designer Starter Kit:). It’s free.
p dir=”auto”>PPS: I am excited to prepare the reopening of my design sketching course with you guys. This end of the year will be the last launch of Sketch Like The Pros for 2017 already. But it will be also a Back to school period for many of you. I though it would be great to start your new venture in best condition and confidence.
Let me update you on the date as soon as they are confirmed. 🙂
