I have been meaning to sketch out my motorcycle (my grandpa’s old bike) for some time now. I started with just a simple papermate fine point on marker paper with the sketch below. Feeling out the shapes, silhouette, proportions and placement of each part. There is lots of room in the engine area, because Benelli used this frame for 4 different size engines (125, 175, 250 and 360cc!). Click on each image below for the step by step demonstration!
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.
