FREEHAND SKETCHING TECHNIQUES

Line weight is a means of using heavier lines to bring


important details to the forefront or attention of the
viewer of a sketch. Proper use of line weights or
thickness when sketching, can help you communicate
important details such as overlap and depth.
Showing a variation in line thickness also helps make
parts or your drawing stand out.

A crate is a light box draw to encase our product we are designing. It helps give the right proportions and accuracy to the drawing to make it look more realistic. Your
crate should be the correct size for the product that you intend to draw., so not too big or too small for the image you are drawing.
Always use your lightest thinnest line (construction line) this will make it easier to go overtop of it if you make a mistake.
It gets pretty confusing with all the lines, but just remember what you intend to draw and you should be fine.

CRATES PROCESS USING CONSTRUCTION LINES

ACTIVITY: complete these shapes by drawing in the construction lines in


the 3d crates and create 3d shapes.
