Get inspired! In issue 39 we delve into the impressive sketchbooks of top industry artists to discover how they observe and invent in the digital age
Get up close and personal with sculptor Glauco Longhi, Moonbot Studios‘ Joe Bluhm, illustrator Richard Yot, 3D VFX artist Simon Reeves and digital sculptor Zoltan Manyi as we explore their individual approaches to sketchbooks in our feature, Observation & Invention.
“I spent my teenage years drawing, both from my imagination and from observation,” Richard Yot reminisces. “I used to fill my school books with drawings, rather than notes. It helped to pass the time during the boring lessons!”
Sculptor Glauco Longhi adds: “I still have my first sketchbook – paper one. There are a lot of anatomy studies and some creatures sketches, as well some rendering (light and shading) pencil studies. After that, when I started studying ZBrush for real, I used to have some sketchbook topics in forums like ZBrushCentral, where I posted a new study almost every day.”
