About this Project:
Hey there! Thanks for checking out my educational product, “How to Draw Cars Now! Analog vs Digital Drawing Techniques 2 Disc Special Edition”
Whether you are an aspiring designer or just love to draw, this introductory course is designed to help train you to acquire the fundamental drawing skills taught in some of the most prominent design schools in the country!
What are you going to get?
Disc 1 Contents
Analog Drawing Techniques – It all starts from the basics! I’ll take you through the process that involves the following:
a. Basic Sketching exercises – training your arms and hands to acquire consistency in your line work
b. Applying Sketching techniques – learn cross hatching techniques and how to apply them to a sketch
c. Thumbnail sketching – A process used for exploring ideas and subject matter
d. Basics in Reflections – I’ll break down reflections in simple terms and how to apply it to the main rendering.
e. Proportion – You’ll learn the fundamental guidelines for creating realistic looking cars that are well proportioned and balanced
f. Marker Rendering – You’ll learn how to create a fully detailed marker rendering that incorporates all the principles from the lessons above!
Once you master the above, you can try to create your own renderings like the one below!
Disc 2 Contents
Digital Drawing Techniques – A step by step process on how to use a wacom tablet and Photoshop to create your digital artwork! The techniques will build on the foundation on disc 1.
You’ll get the following:
a. Digital Tools – Explanation of the digital gear used to create your art
b. Work space setup – Choosing resolution, brushes, and basic tools
c. Simple Rendering – Helping you get used to sketching digitally
d. Intro Speed Painting - A process to help you interpret reality quicker
e. Digital painting – A full blown digital painting using Photoshop.
As your skills grow in due course of hard work, practice, and time, you'll be armed with knowledge to create your own digital artwork. Hopefully, you'll be able to teach me a thing or two!
Of course, my fellow disciplined artists, there is more than just the discs themselves such as:
1. A 20 page Reference Book
You are not going to be by your computer all the time, so why not take a useful 20 page handbook packed with useful tips and inspirational messages around with you?
2. Three Ebooks
a. Driven Mavens Top Blog posts that will inspire you to take action and draw!
b. Intro to Value sketching
c. Intro to Proportions – with printable templates
3. Data files that support the contents of the DVD
4. A drawing schedule to help plan your week to practice the fundamentals
So Why do I need YOUR help to complete this project?
The regular burnable dvds are relatively cheap, but it's tough to burn discs at home if you are aiming for high volume. With high volume comes the need for proper manufacturing with top notch materials for the included reference book, special DVD case, and inserts that go along with it. In order to do this you need enough volume to make it a valuable proposition to not just me...but more importantly YOU! That's why KICKSTARTER was the perfect choice to implement this project! They can enable dreams into reality!
Where am I at with this project?
The content of the DVD's are 95% complete. I leave 5% for some minor changes and due credits that are tied to backers for the higher level rewards. However the unique DVD packaging, Reference Guide book, DVDs, and inserts are all completed and ready for our local manufacturing company in Michigan to get the green light!
Why did I decide to make this happen?
To create VALUE added educational content! I believe everyone that is driven and works hard deserves a top notch education. College is getting extremely expensive and competitive so in addition to providing a learning outlet on my blog, www.drivenmavens.com, I decided to create a product that would help aspiring designers or artists get an edge. When I went to college for my Industrial Design and Engineering degree, theory and application were very rarely connected. So I decided to close that gap and bring more depth into the entire process of learning.
I hope that you are willing to contribute to this project and help to not only fulfill my own dream, but hopefully this will be the fuel to help start yours!
So what are you waiting for? Start pledgin! :)
It's very hard to show a picture that accurately conveys the beauty of these prints. Metallic photographic prints have this awesome sheen to the surface that give it almost a warm copper tone that enhances the contrast and "pop" factor on these prints. What better way to have automotive art then to have it on metallic photo paper?
