In this video I'm demonstrating a simple pencil technique of using not only the tip of the pencil, but also the side of the pencil to create dimension and depth. I use my favorite Prismacolor pencils here, taking care to keep the pencil sharp throughout the sketch.
This is a very simple technique but amazingly effective. When done right you get very dynamic sketches with a very human touch to them. Try going fully analog with no color on your sketches for a few days and then try combining this technique with others like marker rendering or even adding color in Photoshop. Have a watch with the sound on to hear me explaining everything in detail. Comment below with any questions and I'd love to hear your suggestions for future videos...and of course like and share! :-)

Yo! C77 Sketch is a monthly video series from Core77 forum moderator and prolific designer, Michael DiTullo. In these tutorials, DiTullo walks you through step by step rapid visualization and ideation techniques to improve your everyday skills. Tired of that guy in the studio who always gets his ideas picked because of his hot sketches? Learn how to beat him at his own game, because the only thing worse than a bad idea sketched well is a great idea sketched poorly.
