TIP 1| Draw with a Papermate Flair M
Learning a new technique is often intimidating at the start.
As a beginner, we lack precision.
This is why I recommend you practice with a thicker felt nib: The Papermate Flair M is my favorite.
Draw without looking for perfection and enjoy studying today’s drawing tutorials!
TIP 2| The minor axis is your symmetry axis!
An important rule is to draw a cylinder base product, the minor axis is your symmetry axis.
No matter from which angle you see your product.
TIP 3| The 3 steps to drawing “cylinder forms” are easy
Let’s have fun drawing some random forms using the “Cylinder base” technique! I show you below in 3 simple steps:
TIP 4| Visualize boxes in perspective
To level up your visualization in 3D, imagine your “cylinder forms” embed in boxes in perspective.
TIP 5| Draw contour lines
TIP 6| Try the Spring technique!
Let me show you a fun sketching technique.
I draw some springs to create some volumes. Remember to widen the “ellipses” as you go down.
Alrighty, I hope you enjoy this simple tutorial. I wish to show you how you can draw many new forms even as a beginner. 🙂
