Nate - Espaki's Sketchbook (2d, 3d, figure stuff, and maybe some photography)
Hey all, i've been meaning to start a sketchbook thread for a while. It may only get updated once a week or so, but hopefully it will motivate me to update more
My background is in 3d, but i've sketched all my life and currently work as a 3d environment lead and concept artist at a game company. (i know, weird title. I basically create art for whatever is needed at the time, 3d, 2d, level editor, etc...)
Lately I have been doing a lot of digital figure drawing, so i'll kick off my thread with a few of the ones I like the most.
These 3 are 3 hour poses
Some short pose:
And a few misc mudbox sketches, an hour or two each:

Banggg onnnn i'd really love to see your sketchbook work, Values are looking good lovin how you arent going 100% light or dark keeping it in between 20%-80% most of the time is wicked
i dont know much about 3d work so i cant say much there
lines looking a little stiff for the poses i'd love to see you find a bit more Rythem / flow in the gesture phase perhaps
looking forward to more soon ! keep up the hard work

tjtiger: I just ran out of time on that one...no real reason.
Zorcron: Thanks, I think the reason I don't really go to pure black is that I like to have a little color in my darks. I get pretty close in creases though. I know what you mean about the stiffness of my lines, I think my 3d background makes me chisel in form and volume rather than get very fluid with it. I'll try and get some regular sketchbook stuff in- I haven't been working on paper that often in the last year or so, I wanted to focus on my color rendering when I got my laptop.
Here's this week's figure work, 3 hour pose. Overall I'm pretty happy with it, although I didn't get to finish. We'll see if I can try a more "spontaneous" approach next time.

A quick doodle from today while looking through a rainforest book. Color scheme and texture inspired by a frog.
A WIP 3d model I've had on the side for a bit. I haven't worked on it in a month or so, I need to get around to finishing it. Based on my car.
And another Figure piece from late last year.

Figure drawing from this week-
I tried a different approach this time, i didn't start with line, and I used a much more textured brush. I feel ok about this one, but I think my pallet choices could have been better. Finishing some of the details would have been nice too.

Your March 9th model painting is stunning! The negative space enhances the feeling that she is lost in her thoughts. Beautiful pallet as well.
