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.

STEP 1: DRAW WITH REFERENCE PICTURE | DISCOVERY

  • You start the first attempt using reference pictures.
  • You analyze the product from different angles.
  • You memorize how the camera is built by drawing it multiple times.
  • You are not afraid at making mistakes. You are studying the product.

STEP 2: REDRAW THE CAMERA STEPS| MEMORY

Now you draw it again with confidence and with 90% from memory. You look at the pictures only for some details if needed.

Suddenly, 

  • The perspective gets better
  • Your lines get more clean and fluid 
  • The light reflection is improved
  • The details are also sharper
  • The overall presentation looks more professional
