2d & 3d Layout sketching



Hopefully you've had time to practice and develop your technique. This section is about adding subtle layers to your technique to enhance the quality of your sketching. We're going to cover quiet a number of techniques so I'm going to break this down into the following : -

Simple Rounds
Complex Rounds
Casting Shadows

Simple Rounds. Nearly every object has rounded edges, there are very few objects that have perfectly sharp corners. Look around you and see these rounded edges and notice the highlights that they reflect.

Complex Rounds Complex rounds...are, hence the name - we effectively have three simple rounds (count them three!) all meeting at one point and this gets tricky especially when you start thinking about the other 6 visible corners you're likely to get.

If you look at this image you'll see I have drawn a sort of lamp post for the my light source and this lamp post generates two sets of parallel lines. One line goes from the base of the lamp post through the first {closet} corner and out the other side for some distance. Each subsequent base corner has a line moving away from the light source parallel to this first line.
