Industrial Design Sketching - Where to Put Markers!

Industrial Design Sketching – Where to Put Markers!

okay so we have a world line work here and what we're gonna do now is I'm going to show you a few ways to add marker to the sketch and what you want to think about when you do that so I'm going to use let's see what I'm going to use three different markers so let's see if these variety of different markers maybe this one will work as well let's see sure we can use that one so whenever I start with markers I want to start with the lightest marker in this case we're going to make an orange car so I'm going to start with yellow and this is going to cover most of the car except for where we have or highlights and burn points and those are the points where the light is such a strong reflection that it's basically white so you want to keep the paper white there because then you don't have to fill it fill it in later on with white ink so just keep just have the paper doing the work if that makes sense so I always do a horizon line like this and this is to visualize where the shoulder line of the car is so the higher the shoulder line is and that is this line right here the higher this line is the more aggressive or sporty the car is usually that's how it works but nowadays all cars basically all cars have their shoulder on line and very high up it just gives it more muscular feel and it looks cool so what we're going to start with is to figure out whether light source is coming from so I'm going to have the light source coming from up here right yeah I hope you can see the arrow from up here and what you want to do now is to basically start filling in this horizon line here and by that I mean the whole side of the car up until the line that you just put out in between the wheels and you can adjust this line to have it wherever you want to have it on the sketch as I said the higher up the cooler the car or the higher up the more sporty the car is going to look basically so I'm just going to fill this in right now like that and do the same thing on this front fender right here so I'm going to cut that off right there somewhere and this yes this is just one style of infinite amount of styles to sketch a car this is just the way I prefer to do it there are probably easier ways to sketch a car with markers because you can skip all these lines just make it yellow the whole thing and then just add some white ink to it for example but this is how I want to do it and then we have this fender over here now you can see that this surface here this surface right here is facing us that means that it's in the shade at least some of it is in the shade so I'm going to add yellow on there and this the opposite side is facing the Sun so that's going to be why I'm going I'm going to keep it white for now I might add some yellow later on but for now I'm going to keep your wife and I'm gonna add the the this part here and I don't know what to call it really but the the space above the shoulder line I want to have that yellow as well at least with the first layer of yellow which is the brightest one because I'm going to use orange later on anyway so something like that that's a good start and we might want to add some on the hood as well because now the whole entire hood is white so we can add some yellow in here why not just play around with it and I think that looks cool also add up there and I think we're done with the first layer of markers basically the easiest way to do this is to look at sketches that you enjoyed that you like and then try to copy those sketches and try to think about why why the reflections actually go where they are on the sketch alright so right now I'm going to jump into the next layer of markers which is a yr 14 and I'm gonna fill in just add some depth to this and going fast over here and I want to keep the middle white and the base lines are going to get some orange on them as well and also around the wheels something like that what I'm doing now I'm emphasizing the horizon line so I want to add a I want to make this line here stand out and the same thing with this line over here with the horizon line that continues around the corner of the car and you see this nose here this line this surface is facing towards the ground that means that it's going to have a darker shade than the hood which is facing towards the sky and that means that we're going to have to add some orange in there and I'm going to add orange on this part as well because it's facing towards us and not towards the Sun so adding that right there and then maybe add some orange up here and on this side because this whole side is facing towards us and the Sun is coming from that way so that means that it's going to be a bit darker than the rest of the car something like that and I think it looks pretty good right now I'm not even sure I want to add a third marker to this but oh yeah we have this air vent down here so this is a I forgot the word now indent or whatever you call it so this sits inside of the body and that means that it's going to have a darker shade of orange then then the regular surface here that's just the side of the car let's see if we can add some what happens it doesn't even make a difference so cool I don't have to add the last marker because it's basically the same maybe just add some stuff in here like this align like that line over here and you can make a line right there sweet so I think we're done with the body work and that's basically what you want to do when you add markers to a to some line work you want to keep the keep the the most important thing is to understand where the light source is and then go from there and think about where the surfaces are tilted to or it's already tilted towards you which is the shading the which is which are going to be more in shade or are they tilted like this surface here like the fender of this side is tilted towards the Sun which means that it's going to be lighter and then just go through all these surfaces like that and try to figure out how how the sketch is built up so let's let's add some of this too and we can add some black if we want to let's see if I can find a black market that actually has some ink in it I hope this one is fine so you can fill in these air vents here for example like that and fill in this one since you have the line work is pretty easy to figure out where the black is going to go because you already have the surface defined by all these lines here so you need to just select a coloring book just fill in the empty space like this all the way back here alright so then of course you can start to add the black around the wheels and whatever you want and continue this sketch and take it to the level that you want it to be and that's about it guys I hope you enjoyed the video if you did

  1. Just wanted to say thanks you! you do an amazing job. I’ve been a wildlife artist and photographer for 40 years and I have just recently got into working with markers. Absolutely love your videos and can’t thank you enough. Look forward to seeing more videos and I’m definitely going to take your course.

  2. Hi Maroune what pack of markers touchnew do you recommend, I ask mainly about the necessary gray that are needed, some packs dont have a the cool gray one for example that i think is very usefull but that is my doubt

  3. Dude ur really talented !! .. and yh i have a doubt … what r the type of markers u use.. and what do u do if u need like really white lines ?????

  4. I must say that you have one of the most helpful channels for people into industrial design. I applied to design schools this year, but didn't get in (it was very close however). I hope year of practice in a open school and great tutorials like yours help me get into design school next year 🙂

  5. Copic markers are made for blending! Try this: hit the yellow, than orange the core then go back to the yellow on the edges of where you colored the orange while the ink is still wet (don't worry about the tips, just stroke a few times on a scrap piece of paper to clean them.) You'll see you will be able to get much better gradients of color with them.
