>>509538>Because drawing, believe it or not, requires you to think in 3D.
No shit, but why is this relevant?>If you can't draw you either can't or aren't very good at thinking in 3D
Drawing is also a lot more than just thinking in 3D.> doing anything original is going to be a pain in the ass since you won't be able to draw references for yourself
Why would you need to draw references? The point of knowing anatomy and lighting and things like that is to detach yourself from reference. If you only draw (and model) from reference you would simply need good positional awareness.>>509539>Why do you ask a question that you don't want to hear the answer?
In this post you didn't give any sort of explanation as to why I was wrong. You basically just called me a retard. Am I just to accept what you tell me without thinking at all?>>509570
Nice strawman man. To be honest I have no interest in 3dcg (at least for now), I prefer drawing, it's fun, but I was just really really curious because I hear this all the time in CGsociety for instance, and I just don't get it.>>509649
I assume if you have a concept in your head you won't need to scribble a lot to pose a model the way you want and then tweak it to find a nice composition. Again, those things are simply not tied to drawing or painting.
Basically every reply in this thread is >>509589>>509609>So I have basis on lighting, how things work, how anatomy works.
So ok, what you're telling me is that you don't need to deal with those things in 3d so you can't practice them in 3d? Come on mang.>I've seen people who draw like 13 year olds produce good quality 3D
What do you even mean by this? So they CAN'T draw?
