When I sit on my desk and I start sketching, my fingers are quite stiff. The first sketches are often clumsy and it can be frustrating. However, after a bit of warm up, the lines get better, I feel more confident and I start focusing better.
First sketches of the night:
I started my sketches with some kind of stiff lines trying to get a “too perfect” result. But it was just too early stage. Instead of trying to get a nice sketch, I should start first looking for new ideas. As well as in product design or in concept art, the phase of research is great while sketching with a loose hand.
After few minutes of warm up:
Why sketching with a loose hand?
- To warm up the hand
- To draw much faster
- To drop on paper more ideas
- To provoke ”Happy accident” let you pen slide on paper without thinking too much. You will explore unexpected shapes. When you discover a good one, you have a Happy accident.
Drawing with a loose hand is quite closed to Doodling.
The outcome is more free, fluid, and it’s actually easier to draw new ideas.
The final result is a mix of stiff and loose hand. Tomorrow will be a better day. Time for me to sleep – Good night ! 🙂
See you guys for the next Tip of the day !
