what is a process sketch?
« on: December 17, 2011, 11:47:14 pm »
 :) Good evening Dr. Paricio!

Thanks in advance for the help! The question may seem trivial, but I do need the help.

I have never had formal training of ID prior to attending AIO, of course. I have been here at AIO for 2+ yrs and have often been confused a bit by all the "Titles" of different drawings. For example, What is a process drawing? Could you show me some examples of process drawings, especially if this is a generalized term for a certain category, such as "perspective"? (perspective, I get)

Hi, thanks for the question! The way I understand a process drawing would be one that you use to develop a concept in stages. So it would not be a finished one but rather one that is evolved in a succession of layers. Take a look at pages 3 and 4 on this student posting and focus how this rendering has been modified/improved in stages.

Thank you for the prompt response. It doesn't refer to a medium, like quick study sketch or marker rendering. It can include any medium, just in stages. Did I state that right?
