Sketches

Postby Gerardo » July 9th, 2019, 10:41 pm

For my latest model I made my very first sketch as part of the design process. Most of the models I create are practical. My main concern in those cases is for the model to work and not so much how it looks. And regarding the few figurative and conceptual models I have created, I usually worked with a mental picture, but I never sketched them.

So I wanted to share the sketch with you guys:

And this was the resulting model :):

I know they have their differences. I simplified a couple of the things in the model and the top isn't as seamless as in the sketch, but I think I got close enough and I liked that.

Those of you who make sketches, please share them here. I showed you mine, now I wanna see yours :P.

I know for example JAPC has made sketches for creating models: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=79&p=137002#p137002

Gerado, I have to admit, that your sketch and the final model look quite similar, but in my eyes their expression and meaning is very different:
- The sketch shows a desk with chuckles.
- The model more looks like a table or box than can be opened at the top with two handles.
At least this is my interpretation. Maybe I'm still completely wrong.
The sketch probably would have been helpful as an explanation for the June challenge.

Thank you for your words and you're probably right Splunge. Now, the judge's and a fellow competitor's comments made me think they got my model and fold. Aside from that, I consider that if a figurative or conceptual model by itself isn't enough to express its referent and concept, then it isn't good enough. Finally, I'm already conversing about my model with different people through the O-list. This thread isn't about my model, it's about sharing sketches ;)!

So, do you make sketches when creating a model? Let's see one!
