Good Dudes Do Doodles!
Industrial Design Sketching - The Easy Way to Creatively Present Your Work.

By Alex (leManoosh)

Hi Manooshies!
I know it is difficult to freely explore your ideas and present them in a creative and attractive way. In this video, I show you the 5 steps to create quick, easy and creative doodles! This is a method that you can use to develop new ideas, better present your work and start your path to becoming a real creative mind!

Before you begin, if you’re wondering where the link is to receive the 3 other videos which I mention in this one, here it is:

Alright. So, in the video above, I show you the method to create doodles, the easy and quick way….the RIGHT way!

Use this one as an underlay if you want to follow along.

The pens & markers I am using

1 black uni pen
1 C3 Copic marker (use any light grey marker)
1 yellow highlighter (Good because it is cheap and brings life to your page)
1 black pencil (reinforces the contrasts)
1 white pen

You can find all of these on the leManoosh resources page.

The 5 easy steps

Step 1: Apply the Grey (use any light grey marker)
I’m trying to emphasize the areas which are in the shadow using a light grey (not too light, not too dark).

Step 2: The Highlighter
Just use it to fill in without spending too much time (and money..!) on the same area. This will add life to your page and makes it more creative.

Step 3: Black Pencil/Contrast
We’re adding on the contrast to the surfaces in the shadows. So the side which is very close to the shadow gets darker. This will help you to build the volume.

Step 4: White Pen
We’re creating the highlight on the other side of the black part lines.

Et voila!
