Arvind Ramkrishna is an automotive designer with 13 years of experience, and is the author of Driven Mavens, an automotive design blog which features high quality video tutorials, mainly focusing on traditional car drawing techniques.
Following the requests of Driven Mavens’ community, he has just launched a Kickstarter project of an instructional DVD set called “How to Draw Cars Now! Analog Vs Digital Drawing Techniques”.
The Box Set includes nearly five hours of video content, as well as some digital and printed additional materials.
As Arvind explains, “How to Draw Cars Now! is an introductory course designed to help train you to acquire the fundamental drawing skills taught in some of the most prominent design schools in the country.”
The DVD Box Set contains two DVD discs, a 20 page Reference Book, a printed drawing schedule and three digital e-books.
The course material is targeted to both design students and hobbyists, who will be guided from the basics of car drawing to the digital drawing and painting tools, with lectures on proportions, perspective and reflections as well as comparisons between traditional and digital techniques.
The project can be supported on Kickstarter, with different levels of pledges. The special introductory price for the full DVD Box Set is $40 (plus $15 for international shipping).
