scribbles

This is a technique I use to loosen up and try to break the monotony when designing. We tend to fall into drawing the same shapes etc. To break out of that I use a piece of scrap paper, a piece used for calisthenics is the best, and draw random scribbles. The scribbles will start to look like objects or have a certain dynamic that is appealing. From those scribbles, I usually pull out lines and shapes that give interesting proportions or objects. Doing this usually frees me up and at times I’m able to pull good stuff, but it doesn’t work all the time.

Sketched this guy on this crazy old school HP transparencey/ film type paper, that Jon and I picked up from the archives of SJSU ID.  Sweet stuff!  I used prismacolor pencils and Ad Markers on the back of it, to control the pencil/linework on one side, and marker/color on the other.
