Product design sketches should be technically accurate as well as aesthetically pleasing—even when it's a part as complicated as a Formula 1 steering wheel. Veejay Gahir shows you how to render a design in SketchBook Pro using this complex example: from importing reference images and the initial outline to adding shading, highlights, and feature lines with tools like Flood Fill, Lock Transparency, and various brushes. Veejay also walks you through how to add text to your design and export the final work as a JPEG file.
There are many different types of sketching tools available on the market today. They vary greatly in cost and capability, but what I particularly like about Sketchbook Pro is the fact that it used extensively by Automotive and Consumer Products. It also supports a familiar layer based workflow and allows for customizing of the user interface. Sketchbook Pro is specifically designed for pen tablet interfaces, which allows for direct interaction with the sketch and comes equipped with a comprehensive array of tools and brushes.
For this course, I'm assuming you have a basic understanding of Sketchbook Pro. If you want to brush up on your skills before taking this course, I recommend checking out Sketchbook Pro 2010 Essential Training by David Lee. On my Cintiq, I have programmed four buttons: one for undo, one for space bar, one for swapping brushes, and one for saving the file. There are a lot more options to customize a Wacom, but I find that these four keys allow me to enhance my workflow, and achieve everything that I need using SketchBook Pro. You can also the Wacom Intuous family of tablets to achieve excellent results.
