Start drawing in 3D with The CUBE MANIA Challenge ! VIDEO 1/3

Hi guys,

I sometime receive email from aspiring designers who wonder how to start drawing in 3D.

If you also may wonder the same question. You also may face this situation:
Whatever you draw looks flat. Even though you may use a reference product from real life or a picture, your sketch end looking flat like a « Crêpe ».

Why ? Because you try to draw on paper that is in 2D, so your brain visualise in 2D as well.
But there is also an other explanation. It’s the lack of technique. In other words, your product has no structure in your mind. So your imagination seams to be « cloudy ».

You may think that you will never be able to sketch, because you can’t even get any clear picture in your mind. That makes sense.

But once again.

Learning how to sketch has no link with Innate talent. It’s all about acquiring the right skills.

To do so, today I though making a series of 3 videos to help you start visualise cubes in 3d – and drawing them from different angles!

To get that fast, I will ask you dedication and implementation.

We are gonna go through the CUBE MANIA CHALLENGE! IN other words, you are gonna draw a LOT of cubes following the techniques I’ll show you. They are pretty simple that anyone can understand (even if you are a kid).

So take a pen, some paper.
Don’t ask yourself too many question.

Watch the videos and: “JUST DRAW IT!».


PS: To get started in best condition, I recommend you to go through the Designer Starter Kit:). It’s free.
