HOW TO DRAW STRAIGHT LINES | THE 4 CONFIDENCE EXERCISES


Hello guys!

Many beginners wonder how to get started in Industrial design sketching.

You may tend to have clumsy sketches no matter how much effort you put in. A good way to improve from start is to work on your quality of lines. It all starts with drawing straight lines freehand.

The common mistake is to draw with your wrist or elbow. While you should draw with your whole arm and body. Your shoulder should be in movement.

If you are not aware of it, a bad position can affect dramatically your results for years.

At the end of this video:

  • You will gain great confidence using the basic movement of sketching.
  • You will get ready to go further to make your first steps in perspective drawing.

As soon as you master this,

Professional designers still like to draw straight lines as a good warm-up before a sketching session alongside drawing ellipses and circles.

It helps to warm up your hand muscle and start with good motivation! : )

Like how my friend JonhgHo Lee, Director of programs and professor at the Samsung Art & Design Institute (SADI) says:

“Sketching is like body language (…) It is all about learning the right movement in a step-by-step procedure.

Let’s start! It is gonna be a really fun journey! 🙂
