Sketches 2018

I wish everyone a happy and very succesful year 2019!
This is a collection of sketches I did in 2018. Some are just for me to relax, but most are actually tests to deepen my understanding for design. Especially in the last months I've been focused very much on finding my way further into proper design, away from a mere illustration approach.
The big thing for me this year was getting into Blender 2.79 and a bit of a revelation mid of the year with Blender 2.8. I'm currently in the process of shifting my whole workflow into Blender and only going into Photoshop when I have to 'pretty' something up a tad - or I just don't know how to do that in Blender yet. Grease Pencil had been a BIG part of the switch for it giving me the opportunity to draw in 3D space without goggles on. It's not the same, but I guess as close as you can get.
Grease Pencil and Blender 2.8 in general enabled me to go way beyond my comfort zone and perhaps broaden my comfort zone by a large margin.
