    Sportive Sunglasses

    Good day!

    During my side-job as an optician, in which I am now occupied during my search for a job in the business of Industrial Design Engineering or as Concept Artist, I started to draw some sunglasses.

    Please let me know what you think about them, dont be gentle critics can only make me better!
    Thanks

    From a purely ergonomic standpoint, I wouldn't touch these glasses with a pointy stick. They look seriously bulky and uncomfortable to wear.

    Thank you for the replies.
    I agree, I did not yet look into any of the ergonomics
    I will see if I can find a suitable model who wants to pose for some photographs of his / her head, so I can draw over an actual face.

    If these drawings are in progress, I will let you know.

    I agree they look bulky, but with todays materials they dont have to neccesarily weigh alot. The bottom one looks the most feasible, with the exception that the lenses seem short until they get to the side, if I wore these, they would not block sun. I guess I'm saying the nose bridge is way too wide.

    They may look cool, but as many others have mentioned, the functionality is in need of improvement.

    I love the styling on all - not to mention excellent visualization technique. As far as ergonomics go, I would have to trust your expertise there - being an optician you are surrounded by the product plus the marketing and trad mags you have access to. From a layman's pov I agree the nose bridge seems wide...

    Cool stuff though.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Thank yuo all,

    Now that I look at them again, I have to agree on the poor ergonomics. This is most likely caused by the fact that I intended to make a nice dawing instead of a nice pair of glasses

    I will try to find a suitable head to use as a layer underneath the sketches before I start working them out again.

    I hope to be able to provide some roughs soon, but the final pieces will probably not come within a few weeks. Got to much going on again!

    Thanks all!
