31+ Awesome 3D Pencil Drawings for Inspiration

Creating a 3D image on with pen and paper is a multi step process. Unlike traditional 2D drawing or sketching, you generally do not see what your finished piece will actually be like until the project has made some progress. You generally start off with a sketch of what your piece will look like in the end and then build objects in 3D in a modeler. Once your models are finished, surface textures and characteristics such as reflectivity, transparency, roughness and luminance are applied to make it stand out.
