  1. Is drawing ability required to 3D model?

    Hey thanks for taking the time. Those are great models.. what software do you use? After thinking about it I just don't know if drawing is really necessary. I mean yeah for concept, unique stuff but in terms of your real world assets, I don't think it is. I have no desire to be an artistic person who can draw great on paper. Just enough to make something half decent. Rough sketches if you will.

    Thanks for your replies I appreciate it.
  3. Is drawing ability required to 3D model?

    If you could've told your beginner self any advice when you started learning 3D without drawing ability, knowing what you know now, what would it have been?

    That kinda depressed me lol.. that if I get good at 3D I'll realize it's still not that good
  5. Is drawing ability required to 3D model?

    Thanks for the reply. What do you mean they move in to 2D? Like what? So I shouldn't worry about learning to draw right away? It's all overwhelming so I'm kind of confused right now on what I should be doing to progress.
  6. Is drawing ability required to 3D model?

    Thanks for your replies I appreciate it! I picked up a couple books, "drawing for utter beginners" and "perspective made easy". Might get "drawing on the right side of the Brain" too. So I guess drawing is a bonus in terms of the modeling, but really helps in terms of being able to author your own original concept art to create things that you can't find real life references for? Would that be accurate? Does drawing benefit for texturing and materials? Which I have no idea where to even get started there. Thanks again for taking the time to answer me.
  7. Hi, I'm brand new here. I'm learning modeling in Blender. I'm just curious if drawing ability is required to become a good 3D artist? And if so is there any help with that (books, etc) you could point me to. How did you get started? I'm not exactly a young buck, I'm 32, so I'm a little late in the game to be starting, I know, but games are a passion and the art in them are fascinating to me.. my goal is to make environment assets for games in engines like Unreal which I'm currently using. Thank you!
