The best way to get warmed with the sketching up is to simply grab a pen and paper. Here I show talk about the analog tools you can use.
Everything is a curve in design sketching. In this exercise we are taking it to the extremes and see what we come up with by only using ellipses!
Personally I don't like spending time setting up a perspective grid system. I use this technique instead. It's not only faster, but also way more fun!
Cloud sketching explained. The idea with this techniques is to outline the design from a larger perspective by first sketching an ellipse, or "could" where the sketch will fit within. Then we will adjust as we go along and add details once we're happy with the overall perspective. It doesn't have to be perfect!

We're starting out with shape exploration in Sketchbook Pro. Once we find a design we are happy with, it's time to jump into Photoshop to render the design.
