Sketching Mechanical Dog

Another 3 min video of sketching the mechanical dog. It starts with an absurdly simplified mockup of a dog, which I drew in seconds with a thick brush. Then you can see me building up a pencil sketch on top of that. Trying and discarding different ideas as I go. Cleaning up and refining the final sketch. Tools: Procreate for iPad.



This is my favorite sketching method at the moment: taking advantage of digital layering to build the sketch up from simple to complex where a quick draft sketch acts as a map for the next layer/sketch.

Here is a finished version of the mechanical dog, completed in vector format in Autodesk Graphic for iPad.
