This week industrial designer Eric Strebel‘s got a sketching video up. “I recently visited Norfolk, Virginia and was inspired by all the military hardware on display in the area,” he writes. “You can see some of the amazing ships in the beginning of the video. This got me to thinking about why today’s military hardware is not electric or even hybrid.
“I decided to sketch up a light infantry concept vehicle for the brave men and women of the Armed Forces. It’s a sketching tutorial as well. I rough in the form of the vehicle with a 10% grey marker to work out the proportions, then switch to a Hi-Tec C pen to flesh out the details of the tank. Finally I use a series of darker values to add more form to the craft.”
