How to Generate Shapes and Forms – Alchemy

October 17, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

Starting with that blank page is pretty difficult.    Even if you start sketching, sometimes you tend to sketch the same shape over and over again.  So how do you get over this and break that trend?  How do you generate different ideas without investing a whole lot of time? Finally, How would you like to energize your creative thinking and start sketching some MAD lookin shapes without even having to think about it(well…I guess the thinking will come in afterwards).

Now you can…for FREE!!!(That probably woke you up a little bit)  Enter a sweet software called Alchemy!  This software is simply BAD!!  It allows one to create random shapes, textures, thin and thick lines, rhythmic patterns, and many more things with a swipe of your mouse or wacom pen.  Many  pros are engaging this unique software like Scott Robertson(used on some conceptual vehicles in his book “DRIVE”), animators, automotive designers, and even schools are using it to help spark the creative minds of youth!

Below are a few sketches and a quick video that show you what you can do with Alchemy.  Alchemy will truly help inspire you to find treasure in absolute randomness, changing the way you sketch and generate ideas. Make sure you download the software here and start sketching!  Be sure to post up what you can come up with on the Driven Mavens Fanpage.
