Car sketches are your food

Today I would like to tell you about car designers favourite food: sketching cars!

Several times I wrote about the importance of sketching cars correctly and the image here published made by designer Akos Szas is an example. The car sketches composition about a Wolksvagen project proposals shows how exciting could be drawing cars. I imagine that Akos's drawing is part of a larger series of presented works, what is very interesting and well made is the composition and all detailing done.

Here another good car drawing made by Brook Banham, this is another example of how we can describe on a white paper an idea with several drawings. The objectif is to express ideas and creativity with a simple technique, good basic rules like perspective and linework, line quality and shading, a focal point and a good simple composition.

All this to sell well your concept and make sure that you keep high the attention of whom is watching your works. So this is the importance of sketching and drawing well! A good sketch that explaines clearly your concept will always be well accepted and not ignored.

Many times I have seen good ideas very badly represented and there you go... nobody paid attention to them. Was it right? Yes! Because we do not have too much time to discuss, lots of drawings to check, many presentations to listen to, how could we stop minutes on each single drawing? Impossible, so everybody looks for good stuff to critic from which chose some.

Tamila's drawings about an Alfa Romeo MiTo research is again a good example of what I wrote before. Good ideas, good composition, nice illustration technique, focal point.

So once againg my strong advice for all young car design students is to keep on sketching cars and anything else you feel like drawing. Make many sketch-books, use this school time to train yourself as much as you can, this is your it and do not get tired of it.

Have fun!
