Hockey Helmet

Inspiration comes from so many different places, things you see, events in your life….especially when hockey playoff season starts!  Haha! Sketched these, and many other pages out, before going over to Easton Bell for an interview….worked on a few more after the Sharks won a crazy game last night OT.  Gotta work on sketching human heads, get that proportion down….none the less, pretty fun to sketch out!

What if Smart Car…..made a truck?  While I was working the other day, I stared out the window at a Smart Car and thought….wow, it might be cool if they made a cute little truck.  Make it a bit longer, add a really short bed, could be pretty sweet!  ….no no, not a Isuzu Brat….a Smart Truck! 

Happy 1st Birthday Lineweights!

Circles Inside Squares

Recently, Jon and I were asked to teach the Visulaization 1 class @ SJSU Industrial Design.  It is something we both aspiring to do someday in the future…and that future is now.  We are now 3 weeks into the class and the students seem to be responding really well, and bring a positive attitude to class everyday.  Hopefully from their point of view we are able to connect, communicate, educate and inspire.  I felt like the Circles Inside Squares demo was a great spot to start with our new posts for the class (as several other components that we have taught already appear here on LW’s).  Enjoy!

First, sketch this out on a sheet of paper, cut it out and fold it up into a 6 sided cube.

Now, using your cube…sketch out what you see.  Play with Perspective Views, View Angle, Eye Level of the cube…and then freehand the ellipses on each showing side of the cube!

Monkies, Guns and Life

Sketching random things you see or imagine and composing them into one sketch, can be a pretty interesting way to spice up your content.  This is a combination of both things I came across, like the older gentleman on the right, the hand gun, and the city in the background…the skull, rocket ships and monkey in the space suit are from a Digital Art magazine.   Had a bunch of fun with this sketch, hell…who doesn’t like drawing monkeys?

Smart Car.

Pretty straight up…time to draw a Smart Car!  They have such cool little personalities,  it makes it easy to capture the character like feel that these cars have.  Used a ultra fine point Sharpie and Pentel Sign Pen to bold up the out side lines.  Keep it loose and free… Enjoy!

Sketch Warm Up!

Feeling tired and rusty?  Been a while since you last sketched? Need a pick-me-up, that will get your marker started?  Sketching warm ups are the best way to break that silence between your pen and paper.  It will help your brain visualize your next move and learn to build confident lines.  This technique shown here is most commonly taught at Art Center in Pasadena, and Scott Robertson being the biggest proponent!  I threw on his DVD and did a little sketch warm ups.
