HOW TO DRAW A CAMERA | GO PRO | BALLPOINT PEN SKETCHING


Hello!

I often receive messages of aspiring designers
who do not dare to sketch and are worried about making mistakes.
 
To help you overcome this fear,
I am giving a 7-day sketching challenge to my students!
 
I share with you the videos drawing tutorials of the week showing you step-by-step a method on CAMERA DRAWING EASY!
 
Since the camera become digital, the forms have evolved a lot. The pictures are now no more stored in the film but in tiny memory cards. 
 
The Go Pro Camera has a rectangular lens while most DSLR cameras have a cylinder shape.
 
We’ll start by drawing a box and in the details to build up the drawing. 
 
But first, make sure to download the Designer Starter Kit first! 🙂
You will need to practice the basics of a 2-point perspective here.

    Hi Chou-Tac,

    Thanks for the demo – It’s really great. I get a lot out of seeing your hand, pen and paper when you do analogue sketching.

    Could you comment on drawing textures and materials at some point? Maybe show us some simple use of color?

    Cheers mate!
    Luke 🙂
