Sketchbook Ideas – Bodies in Motion – Scott Eaton

These series of photographs have been captured by artist, designer and photographer Scott Eaton. These are just a sample of the several projects that he has undertaken.

The entire works are to be compiled together in a single website that will launch in September.

These are fantastic reference to practice your life drawing, anatomy study sketches, and to help inform your animation skills.

For added complexity to a sketching exercise and to challenge your ability to visualise the human form, take a pose of the subject and then attempt to sketch it from a different angle or perspective than that captured through the camera.

Visit Eaton’s own website here, and in September go to the bodies in motion website for some amazing reference for animation here

Scott Eaton’s work focuses on the form, motion and anatomy of the human figure. He s one of the pioneering artists in the field of digital sculpture and his work combines traditional sculpting techniques with the power of modern digital tools. Scott’s art and designs have been featured in Wired Magazine, Vogue, Vanity Fair, the Times, the Telegraph, and can be found in Harrods and other design shops around the world.

3D Living Scenes Transformed Into 2D Paintings – Alexa Meade

Alexa Meade compresses reality by covering models in specifically applied paint, making sure to focus on painted shadows and highlights to transform her posed subjects into paintings. Meade’s works, which she has referred to as “reverse trompe l’oeil” combine installation, painting, photography, and even performance, as many of her works are done live and with little room for error.

3D artists should take note and look at more non-photoreal approaches to texturing, and would give a very different style to their work.
