I'm practically looking for a Industrial Designer who can teach me and fellow MTC members develop this skill. I've read a few books and watched videos online on how to develop this skill. However, I find some topics technical and I'm having problems understanding them and how to execute them in my sketches.

Like anything, I suppose design sketching is a skill. And skills need practicing to hone and master.

PUT ASS TO CHAIR as my old editor used to put it, gotta do the work to get the results...

Practice practice and practice, you need to learn anatomy, yes that's right anatomy.


So you will know which and what bones/muscles are and how they would react on certain postures. It lays the rule in proportionality. If your interested with drawing ala Marvel/DC style. There is a term called Hero proportion, it is basically an emphasis of certain features like the eyes,shoulder, arm/leg lenght and jaw lines (even hair) even the height is counted at 9 heads instead of the standard 7.5


Grab a book by Andrew Loomis (illustration and human anatomy drawing) or Christopher Hart, Drawing cutting edge anatomy (its for comic book artist)


On a related note, I am a fan of Whilce Protacio and even have an mint copy of his "Wetworks" issue 1
