Course description
I believe using digital sketching techniques and 3D CAD side by side results in a powerful workflow, to quickly develop your design and create eye-catching concept presentations. First we’ll produce rough layout sketches based on a 2D underlay to quickly get you started. Then we will explore various concepts in 2D using basic shading techniques. Next up is transforming the most interesting concept into a rough 3D sketch in perspective. Finally we’ll learn how to produce high quality linework, use persuasive rendering techniques and applying storytelling elements to produce a eye-catching concept presentations! You will not be alone. Inside the course you will be surrounded by peers working on the same assignments.
