Want to learn faster? Make it personal | Sketch from Leo | TIP 168

TIP 168 Want to learn sketching faster- Make it personal. The design sketchbook - Product and industrial design sketching tutorial - Leonardo Penaranda

Leonardo Penaranda Sketch like the Pros student.png

Leonardo studied Industrial design, and he’s today a 3D artist for video games. He enrolled my course Sketch like the Pros as a VIP student.

Leonardo sent me his work about cubes – it is pretty unique. More than following the course step-by-step, he spice up his drawing session: by drawing cubes following a path. His training became an artwork!

Leo’s story and testimonial about Sketch like the Pros. 🙂

“Make it personal.”

Adding a zest of creativity in anything you do help you learn faster. Why?
Because, it become a personal matter. 🙂

Challenge yourself keeping pushing your limits.

Leonardo didn’t draw this artwork for me, for his friends or else. He did it for himself and test how he could perform even more. He’s challenging himself.
That’s a great designer attitude and mindset I admire. Always keep that hunger to improve and push the limits.

Leonardo could push the exercise even further – so I gave him an extra challenge:
Adding holes in all the cubes!
Here we go! You can see his response below:

Leonardo definitely enjoy sketching! I guess that’s why he’s making so cool sketches! 🙂

If the sketching methods I’ve acquired aid me in my life and in my career, I believe that they can also help you to learn, and help you with your projects. Whether Design is a job or a hobby it doesn’t matter, so long as you do what is important to you.

    Sure, I’m sorry if I revealed a well-kept secret!

    I would love to get into the 1-on-1 version if the price is the one I saw. I think I could make a great use of it. Do you already have a waiting list? If so, save me a spot! Contact me in the email adress I provided if you need any more info.

    Looking forward to joining it and working with you.

    Hi Chou-Tac. Are you going to open a new edition of the “sketch like pros” course anytime soon? I don’t know how I ended up in https://training.thedesignsketchbook.com/oops-the-course-opens-soon but I noticed that the offer already ended. I would love to do the self-taught version if you keep such a competitive price.

    Thanks for your time! Love the website.
