I do not think anyone draws without a reference, probably someone that was visually impared since born. We, the rest have visual references all the time. Some skilled people learn how to grab thoose visual references from memory or intuition. Chapter I, a study of material properties This is a complex question. For example, in 3D rendering this is one of ...

This is a simple application of the moiré effect. Here's one way to recreate it: Create a pattern consisting of regular black stripes. For an optimal result, the stripes should be a little bit wider than the transparent gaps between them; here, I used 6px stripes with 4px gaps: This pattern will be what you'll print on the transparent screen in front of ...

This is called Marker Rendering, is a sketching technique to present design ideas. It's a very common presentation technique used by any designer attending early stages of design, arts or architecture school. It is also used by professionals that become masters at this technique. This skill kills any computer aided illustration technique, becuase is ten ...

Funny that you ask this - I just saw this for the first time last week myself in book form at a toy store. I searched around for that online and found this: About Scanimation. In case that page goes away, here's a link to the YouTube video in there. Not sure if Scanimation is just a brand name or not, but here's their description: Scanimation is a state-...

I am not a product designer, nor do I play one on social media but ... Do not circulate your designs without an NDA! You need to entice your prospective clients/manufacturers to meet with you, sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), then present the idea. In a perfect world, you'd also patent your design. But that's not a cheap process and I suspect you ...

A quick check on Jony Ive shows that he was born in 1967, and he studied, among other things Industrial Design. While CAD was a thing in and around 1986, he most likely learned the bulk of his trade at the time using technical pens, mechanical pencils etc. The image you provided has all the hallmarks of technical drawing, but also looks to be worked up with ...

Your design does not meet the requirements for barcodes as outlined by GS1 US, the organization responsible for publishing and maintaining UPC standards. The standards are available on their website; specific information about best practices is available in the GS1 General Specifications (PDF link). Additionally, some retailers explicitly disallow this type ...

As with many questions of this nature, there are three requirements: practice, practice and more practice. That said, there are a couple of tips that I can share from my experience and struggles with illustrating product designs like those that you have shown. My approach has always been via digital illustration (Illustrator or Photoshop), but the same ...

I can definitely say that the first thing to do is to look at it in its context. See what the similarities are between all products of a similar or identical nature. Once you know what the common, acceptable similarities are, you can identify what's unacceptably similar and could be infringing on your rights. For my example, I'm going to imagine I ...

In general, professional graphic designers try not to step on Intellectual Property Rights' toes, as a big part of our industry depends on them.* What constitutes infringement, though? That is always a legal question, and not one with necessarily hard-and-fast rules. It will typically come down to the opinions of a legal team vs. the opinions of an opposing ...

It seems like you are looking for Orthographic drawings/projections. You can always photoshop a picture of a human and it's height besides the images. I don't think you will find an archive of dimensioned specified objects next to a dimensioned human though.

This kind of thing is tricky, because there are no district shapes in the image for filters and selections to get hold of, so if you don't already have separate elements for the shapes and details in the image then you are going to be doing some drawing. In the following rough example image, I have done the following: Draw a path that recreates the shape ...

Martz has a good answer. Give him the credit. To add some more details, however: I'd say that particular type of drawing is a hand drawn conceptual sketch. The idea is to show the rough concepts of a product's design. Usually its form, along with surface decoration (colors, textures, etc.) The style it is done in as a marker rendering. Specifically the ...

There are several huge reasons why this happens; 1 is because the client wants it like that. The way a client will look at this is "Well Coco Pops looks like this, and it sells, so a design like this will sell for us" 2nd is that particular design, tells a consumer a lot about the product on first glance, and sometimes that's all the time you have to sell ...

If they were compiled from various shots, it may only take a couple hours to assemble the final image. I've done photorealistic 3d in the past, and I don't see the need for this shot to be recreated in a computer. These are just well lit photographs.

I would advise to not get "creative" with the bar code design. There are standards for using bar codes. The basic idea of a bar code Every barcode begins with a special start character and ends with a special stop character. These codes help the reader detect the barcode and figure out whether it is being scanned forward or backward. How to barcode ...

Yes. It is a "registered symbol". However.... The Bluetooth symbol is specifically designed to be included on product packaging and marketing materials in order to indicate to the consumer that the item is "Bluetooth aware" or capable. With this in mind, of course you can use the symbol on packaging for your product. Merely ensure you stick to the usage ...

If you have new geometric forms, you should build 3D models. You cannot make it by editing existing images if they do not exist. With 2D software such as Photoshop or Illustrator you must be a highly skilled draughtsman and software user to get new forms right. In 3D modelling software you can experiment easily with different views, materials and ...

As your description references a box, which is a three dimensional object, it is practical to consider to use software which assists/implements three dimensional object design. Depending on your willingness to devote hours to learning a software package, you can use a beginner level program that will take little time to learn and may provide your ...

For the guy a search for silhouette drawings people would do. For the tables dimensions side view would be a description that an architect would use.

Perhaps you are searching for something like this: https://i.pinimg.com/736x/d4/bc/70/d4bc702cce51856f9849e61fe41df708--human-figures-concept-diagram.jpg Either way, you should use the search terms: person, dimensions, schematics, table (for example).

Quite complex job. Fortunately there are sharp edges and no background. Without knowledge of the geometry let's try only something plausible that does not need the redrawing of the fine paths First make copy into a new layer. There you can emphasize the fine print by the Emboss filter. Quite extreme settings are needed due the low contrast. Note the light ...

You need to know where the wanishing point is or you can not draw an accurate perspective. So regardless of wether it fits your paper or not you got to know its location. Now nothing says your wanishing point has to be on your paper. There are a few ways you can deal with this. One is to put the wanishing point on another paper, prefeerably a bigger one, ...

Hmm I'm not entirely sure as I've never used Catia / BIM but in most CAD software there's various functions for things like this. Revolve comes to mind which a quick search shows me Catia does have. You'd basically create a polyline from the center of one end to the center of the other and then use it as an axis to revolve around. Other terms I can think ...

You might want to consider making a prototype. Shapeways is a 3D printing service that can help you with that.
