McKay Nilson  Industrial Design ✖️ Art

Here's an example of the concept I introduced last time being used to map out a real object; in this case its flashlight I designed last year. By twisting the head a USB charging port is exposed on the underside.
Construction geometry was especially important here by defining a clear central axis and perspective to build the cylindrical shapes on. It also provided a framework for the action arrow that allowed it to fit cohesively with the product in the scene.
For the next one I'll be showing how I use construction to draw engaging exploded views!

📐If you can draw a cube, you can draw anything! A lot of you expressed interest in learning about the ways I use construction geometry in my process, so here's the first of a 3 post series I'm working on.
If you can draw a good cube, you can use its geometry to construct almost any other basic shape inside of it. These basic shapes become the building clocks for sketching out complex forms.
In my next post, I'll show how a product can be drawn by reducing it to basic shapes like cylinders and cubes. 📐

📐Nitty gritty. When doing complicated scenes with multiple parts, construction geometry is my favorite tool for keeping everything cohesive. Would anyone be interested in me posting a series showing in depth how I use construction geometry in my sketches? 📐

🚩Here's one for the #everydaydesignuk furniture sketch competition! The Panton Chair by @vitra is one of my favorite examples of harmonious form and function. I really love the lines of this chair as well. What's your favorite iconic chair? 🚩

✨ I've had several requests to do a light saber recently so here it is! I've always been impressed by the prop design in the original trilogy. ✨

✏️ Last Summer I started posting sketches as a way to keep myself practicing and improving. I never thought I'd have so many people supporting me along the way so thanks to all of you who follow and support my work! ✏️
