Sketchbook and Mechanical Pencils
by John Malcolm
Final Renders & Video
My name is John Malcolm and I live in Paisley in Scotland. I’ve been a Blender fan for years but it’s only in the last year or so that I’ve really become addicted to it.
About "Sketchbook and Mechanical Pencils:"
This project was aimed at tying my love of pencil drawing together with my love of Blender. I have done freelance illustration in the past which is fully digital. Taking an actual sketchbook to my local pub from time to time is relaxing and gets me away from the computer from time to time. The drawings featured in these renders are from a couple of my ‘pub’ sketchbooks. The modeling is fairly straightforward. The most notable thing was using the Curve modifier to bend all 80 sheets of paper into the correct shapes.
