I haven't been able to record a sketch video for a few weeks since I have been traveling in China visiting factories. Since my last video, a few of you requested that I sketch some softgoods. In today's video I sketch up a backpack concept and show you a few key techniques including: basic backpack constructions, simulating leather, and simulating textiles in a rapid concept visualization.
A few important notes on this sketch:
First, notice how I start with very light line weight, even with this Papermate Flair pen. Only once I have the form and concept roughed in do I come back with heavier lines. Pay close attention to the pressure you put on your pen to control this.
Second, check out how minimally I use markers. This is a quick sketch. There is no need to over render. Simply indicate form and materials...I also got to use my favorite marker color in this video, "Cinnamon Toast"! Who names these things? I wish I was on that project!

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.
