Greeble Scribbles

This is a topic for drawing complicated things. Post your attempts, post your sketches, post your successes.

Mechs, Engines, Shopping Carts, whatever feels impossible to draw at a glance without breaking it down in your head.

Rules

1- Post your attempt
2- Question / Advise people on the drawing. (How do you draw something like this when you need to? / I drew this by using Google Sketchup and following these steps...)





My attempt



I tried to draw computer chips on a motherboard.

My question: How the hell would you do something like this in a more effecient manner? Is it realistically possible to do by hand?

Somewhat confused at the challenge.  It says not to break it down in my head.  Does that mean i can't draw the simple shapes and put detail after?  Usually when i look at anything i start to break it into simple shapes in my mind

Haha no I meant you SHOULD have to break it down into simple forms if you want to even try to draw it. You can break down anything but say instead of a car draw the interior, or a car engine. I was interested in how more experienced artists tackled such things

That's a tricky one, but I see what you did there with some of my old drafting knowledge from back in the days of high school...Hmm...not a bad way to look at it. Thanks, Shane. I may actually start using some of that when I do my sketchdumps, especially with the ellipses. (Damn...why didn't I think of doing that..? :push: )

That is sort of devestatingly good Shane! That`s laser-precision right there. Great stuff! How long did that even take to break down?
