Sketching Tips

    Sketching Tips

    Has anyone any tips on how to start sketching, like tutorials or books? I've been away from design since I left college a few years ago as I found work in other areas and want to get back into it, and having a hard time getting started back sketching.

    If you look at some off the other posts there is books mentioned. Actually I must say I'm trying to get back into sketching and its quite hard to get back when you've been away a while. I finding it hard to get started, hard to stick through the shit I'm producing, problems is I look at the books and want to produce the cool sketches but will take lots off hard work to even get near there. The worst thing is I don't know what to sketch...there's only so much boxes and elipses I can do, its making the next step to picking a product and making it look real on the paper.

    Re: Sketching Tips

    I have a few recommendations for sketching tutorials and books:
    Sketching the Basics Sketching the Basics- Koos Eissen - Brilliant book that provides an overview of the fundamentals of sketching.
    Sketching Product designSketching: Drawing Techniques for Product Designers - Relates sketching techniques to product design firms - like a big case study of design firms and how they sketch.
    Also a brilliant online resource is Sketch a Day.com - this guy has a good few tutorials and although they are quite advanced in many cases it will help inspire you :-) They are also on FaceBook so you get inspire regularly :-)

    My company DesignBurst is running a sketching course. Its a 4 week evening course that is very intensive. It covers all of the fundamentals of design sketching and rendering and will help you brush up on your technique and will give you a clear way of putting pen to paper effectively :-) I designed this course based on my years of experience in the design sector and have tried to keep it fun and engaging to encourage people to sketch.
    More details of next course here:
    Sketch 4 Success course -DesignBurst

    Any questions please just ask :-) Happy to help share any insight I have :-)
