Staying over at work playing instead of going home to clean the apartment as planned... The sketch started as a phone doodle but then I got stuck in the world of sketching and Photoshop magic. Here is the original sketch and the final result.
Equipment: Staedler permanent Lumocolor M
Time: 30 min
Equipment: Photoshop CC (Liquify and some cleaning up)
Time: 20 min
Equipment: Photoshop CC
Time: Experimenting for 3 hours (I did plenty of different versions, but I liked this the most because it caught the venomous feeling that I wanted to create the best)
With this image I wanted to show my sketch class students that sometimes it's good to be able to have a hand made sketch as an underlay when creating line drawings or renderings in the computer. I think that you have much more freedom to think and experiment with the design when sketching by hand (or on a Wacom) instead of just going into Illustrator or Photoshop directly and starting to do the line drawing/rendering from scratch. Good proportions can also be hard to achieve if you don't have a sketch to build on. Sketching by hand (or on a Wacom) is also, atleast for me, the quickest way to produce many sketches and form variations, which means that you have more to choose from and therefore are more likely to find a design that is what you want.
Equipment: Sketch: Biq ballpoint pen, Line drawing: Photoshop (I know I should have used illustrator, but I was too lazy...), Rendering: Photoshop
Time: Sketch: 15 min, line drawing 20 min, rendering 3 hours
