Follow along as I work through a few rough sketches for a new project; I discuss the key style points and techniques you can use to develop your own architectural sketching style. Each sketching vignette includes many tips, but broadly they fall under the following headings:
1) Simply your toolset: fewer tools = fewer decisions
2) Start small: move quickly, be less precise, less precious
3) Line work: architectural sketching is a line art, not a fine art
4) Annotations: helps create a layered esthetic, describes things you're not able to easily show
5) Media + Implements: how changing these from time to time can spur new ideas.
6) Practice: the one thing guaranteed to improve your architectural sketching technique.

Thanks for such an informative video. I stumbled across your channel when watching a video of a man making a bench. I'm currently studying a GCSE course called 3D art and employment. My hopes are to be an architect. Any tips?
The point about social media is so important, and kind of sad really. I, like many other aspiring artists I'm sure, so often am too focused on creating a drawing which is "good enough to post" and forget about the importance of the process. Here's to a new year full of making art for the sake of making art.
Hey, I would like to start sketching bit I don't have the materials I need like pencils or this other stuff you need. Can someone help me please and say me what kind of stuff I need and where I can buy it?
i love this video and also its content, it hyped me up to practice sketches for my upcoming cet thanks for this! btw, what's the brand u're uding in this video? i like how the colors in markers seem to blend well — and the color pencils too!
Hi I am a 14 year old who really wants to be an architect and try my hardest to reach that goal thank you for this video have been struggling with the work that goes inte getting a good idea. I keep going back and forth so much that I never get anywhere. have been watching your videos for a long time now and thank you again for making them :)
As a trained fashion designer I used to tell other students that they had to draw every day, home, travel, sitting outside, anywhere . Some asked of it was really neccesary to 'sacrifice' so much time to this but of course if you have trouble with doing this then you should find another job! I began sketching at about the age of 8 and my pocket money went into paper which for me from a poor family was treasure! One night a few years ago I came across a dumpster full of boxes of paper !!! it was raining but I managed to drag home a box despite the rain and walking two feisty Jack Russells ! I imagined what a difference that paper would have meant to me as a child. Lovely video thank you, my father wanted me to be an architect but I chose fashion so I would never be out of work and I never have ! BUT in a way garment construction and architecture are not so far apart are they!
Being an Architecture student from the Philippines. It is very helpful for us to learn new things about Architecture in your video. I already downloaded all 30x40 Design Workshop video. Lets Keep Moving Forward!
I'm no architect, but i do draw tons, a small tip for better handwriting, along with writing smaller, try to write in all caps as well, while still making the first capital letter of a word larger than the other capital letters

I have already started sketching and will be doing a lot more hand drawn projects. Could you make a video on the architectural steps or process?
From when you get a client, what happens, how does it go from there up til the completion and handover of the building? Would be much appreciated thanks.
Some tips I have found that helped me;
1.Don't try to include all details in your first pass. Start with the basic outline and add details in layers. This also helps to get an idea early on about the overall composition if it is acceptable before you invest a lot of time. You can continue to improve the drawing as long as time permits or until you finish.
2. Learn to accept a little imperfection. It will be ok, I promise. You clearly have high standards to be asking this question, so I can't expect you'd throw quality out the window. But the quest for absolute perfection will keep you stressed out and constantly worried about the deadline.
3. Make copies of your outline drawing. Yes, do the basic outline, and when you're happy with it scan it and make copies. If you find your not happy with where it going with the details or color, chuck it and grab a fresh one. Less to redo and less pressure to be perfect.
