Hello! For those of you who are learning Car Design, CDA instructor is going to share some techniques today.  

 

Q: Why do you recommend for using a water base ball-point pen while my practicing?

You can draw clean lines easily if you use pencil or oil base ball-point pen only by adjusting the pen pressure, which is not suitable for line drawing practice. 

On the other hand, lines will be drawn in vivid with water base ball-point pen or felt-tip pen even if you adjust the pen pressure. Therefore, practicing with those pen is the most effective way for improving your drawing ability in short term.

By the way, the felt-tip pen has higher degree of difficulty than the water base ball-point pen because line which drawn by felt-tip pen is not only vivid, but it is also bold. After practicing by aqueous ballpoint pen or felt tip pen, you will find later on when you use pencil, your line drawing skill is significantly improved. In other words, the felt-tip pen is the most suitable for your practicing of car sketch.

You might feel uncomfortable for using felt-top pens in the beginning; however I encourage you to master it!
