    Hello Spencer,

    Thank you so much for the tutorials! Design sketching is just as much as challenging for me as getting through math was. Keep up the good work!!

    Excellent! And well explained. Please do LOTS more basic drawing techniques! This is a godsend for those like me who are industrial design students who struggle with the basics. Keep going!

    Hey Spencer, ive been having a bit of trouble showing the form of an object using shadow cores, i don’t really understand that. Is the shaded line (shadow core) used on the surface next to the one that is being raised outwards? Like the way you have raised the knife handle out just in from the edges. Im also confused about when a shadow core should be used, is it right next to the area where direct light hits the surface? Because if thats the case, in the cylinder i dont get why theres a shadow core 2 sides, and not just the side opposite to the shadow?

    • http://www.idsketching.com Spencer Nugent

      Good point. I’ll try and prep something to explain more. As for the second core, that’s usually there to show something reflecting into it in the “environment” look at any cylinder and you’ll see what I mean. When there’s a light area next to the core, it’s suggesting that there is some reflective ambient or back lighting in the environment. I’ll try and get something out soon. I’ll be on a two week hiatus from the site for travel and n site demos but can take a look then.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I find it illogical that reflected light appears on the same side as the shadow, 03:54
    Bounce light is one thing but the whole side shouldn’t be lit up from my experience.

    • http://www.idsketching.com Spencer Nugent

      Sure. To each his own. In my experience as a professional designer, the goal is to communicate the form. The best way for me to do that in this case when doing something orthographic is to really punch the shadow core and emphasize the reflected (ambient) light and how it causes a lightening of the underside. Hold up andy fairly reflective cylindrical object in a somewhat similar fashion and you’ll see what I mean. Knowing the rules doesn’t mean you must be bound to them.

      Knowing the rules lets you be creative and use them to communicate in the most effective way possible. In my opinion, a picture perfect representation of reality can sometimes be boring or confusing and it’s our job as designers to represent as clearly as we can what’s going on – in this case with a somewhat 2d ortho view, that meant me pushing reality a bit to get the contrast needed to show depth. Hope this isn’t too confusing. If you need examples, feel free to contact me – info at idsketching.com

    Hi!

    Great thing to share your Skills.
    What kind of tracingpaper is this? I Spent already 50 bucks for different papers, but had no chance to find one, that works with markers! Or arent the Prismacolors alcohol-based?
    Any hints are most apreciated!

      Hi!

      Now, THAT was a quick response! :)
      Now i have to find a store here in Germany that can get it for me… it seems, that this brand is only sold in US.
      But thank you anyway! Your Vids inspired me to do more work with my hands and pens again, rather than my wacom…

    Hellos , I’m tryingig to see your videos here on my iPad but it seems that I have no video to look at, at any of your video post. Do I need to add an app? Or have a program running? I check on my laptop and in there I can see the videos but unfortunately not in my pad. Hopefully someone knows whats going on.
