To keep on drawing means to keep on learning. If drawing helps you become more creative and helps you become better at animating too, what’s stopping you from practicing?
Check these 5 reasons why you should continue drawing:
1. Drawing educates our visual sense
Practicing drawing can help animators understand how bodies are shaped, how they work, and how they move. It also teaches you about the dance of colors, the importance of shades, the thickness of lines, and the importance of curves in a drawing, among other things.
2. Drawing inspires imagination
Drawing helps you interpret the things around you into something abstract, and it can also help you translate the abstract things within you into something visible.
3. Drawing helps us communicate
Drawing is a form of communication without using words. It helps ideas and experiences turn into something visual.
4. Drawing heightens our attention to details
Animation involves a multitude of details, and most of them are visual. In modern animated films, details are so specific that even the hem of a garment or a type of fabric can often be seen.
5. Drawing is what legends did
The most iconic cartoon and animated characters to have ever existed started as someone's drawings.
