Automotive Digital Sculptor and Designer Bradley Ratajczek

talks about how to sketch Automobiles (Interior and Exterior) and gives us some of his HOT tips

Hi, I am 

Bradley Ratajczek

 These are quick 5 minute sketches

that i use as either underlays to tighten/clean up or for rapid idealization for future themes. I find by being loose in the thought process, laying out long sweeping brushstrokes help define the overall shape and theme. I mostly draw on A4 bank paper with either black Art-liner or Bic pens. Art-liners are good as they do not bleed when you apply copic markers. The rendered images of the SUV are drawn with a Bic hence the bleed.

 Do not worry about getting the perspective correct

as it take several passes by flipping the pages and drawing over the reverse till the perspective is correct. The main fundamental is to get the idea onto paper. Remember these “quick” initial concepts are usually only for my own eyes. The beautiful renders you see are drawn from many overlays with many hours spent rendering them. Another technique I use is by using underlays- do not think of it as cheating, it helps you understand proportion. Proportion is the most critical for a designer. For example a Sport car needs a longer wheelbase with short front and rear overhangs to define aggressiveness.  

I will be posting a progressive blog including interior & exterior design from sketching to rendering using Alias Automotive paint suite.
