Video tutorial: Form Development


As a designer it is important to be a form giver. One of the hardest things to do with a sketch is making something 2d appear 3d by giving it structure and a feeling of substance. Sometimes searching for form and developing surface is a matter of diving into some scrappy sketch exploration. This video shows how you might work to search out for form and give structure by keeping it quick and loose.
