Colored markers are much harder to use than gray scales. Just matching up the tones and shades can be a huge headache. In grayscales, everything is setup for you. You don't have to go out and test the shades or tones. They are all written out for you. I do recommend using grayscales first. Another thing is, you want to start light. Go 10%-40% at first until you are used to seeing the form of a car before diving in fully and using darker tones.

I have a question...... I bought my prismas online, but I don't necessarly know what color to get next. I have Some greys, a black and some assorted greens, but I don't know what else to get.


I also have trouble inserting 'detail' into my drawings.

With details you don't necessarily have to use markers. Instead throw in some primsacolor pencil in addition to a light color. If you are doing chrome, use cool grays and blue to reflect the sky in addition to something white to show highlights such as whiteout or nupastel sticks.

Sorry if I have any typos. I just cut a piece of my finger off today while working on my clay model for trans.

Well I guess everyone has there right to their own opinions.

Take it or leave it, try both!

This is the thread to AGREE, not disagree, am I right?

See which one you are better at, and feel comfortable with.

Steve.

I definitely agree with steve, techniques can only be self taught. There is no real step my step process as to how to sketch or render. Everyone has their own style and process in learning. The best way to improve is try everything.

To Mrfdesign:

As I was trying to figure out the perspective issues in your sketch/rendering, I realized a lot of the problems where created because your car is too close to one of the vanishing points which creates a fish eye effect making the car look lopsided and out of perspective. There are still few things that you might want to line up with the perspective lines I drew in.

No, I've already told him that.

I also mentioned to him the effect we seem to have on people in a different way...

For example, while the idea may be good, there is alot more to a design then being pretty, it must also be functional, and ergonomical. However, he knows, like the rest of us, that FORM goes ahead of Function in this field.

He's getting much better with his work, and I'm definetley impressed by it.

Steve.

Its a bit more than that, its the fact that its fisheyed on oneside but not the other. Its just much easier to do a 2 point perspective sketch.
