Old School White prismacolor pencil Industrial Design “ID” sketch on black paper tutorial


April 9 2012

Detroit based Industrial Designer Eric Strebel demonstrates a design sketching tutorial using a black piece of paper and a white prismacolor pencil. This technique has been used since the earliest days of Industrial Design by pioneers such as Henry Dreyfuss and Raymond Loewy to quickly show a design idea or concept. Eric shows how to start the sketch and describes what ellipsis to use and how to get the perspective just right. The sketch is finished with simple shading and a drop shadow highlighting the bottles top. Music is by Brothers and others Saxaphone Quartet. There are several other Industrial Design tutorials available on Eric’s YouTube channel. You can subscribe to the channel to follow Eric and future Industrial Design tutorials.
