It seems counter-intuitive, but traditional drawing skills are ever more important for the games industry, despite the increasing technology. Drawing is to an Artist what literaccy is to a writer, numeracy to a mathematician and musical score to a Musician. Without a solid ability in the craft of drawing, an artist cannot communicate ideas, tell compelling stories and persuade customers to play games. Without drawing, the games industry will not flourish.
Questions answered :
A passionate plea to put traditional drawing centre stage in the education system. Why is drawing important to the games industry? What do we mean by traditional drawing? How do we teach drawing? Can anyone learn to draw, or is it a mystical gift from the Gods?
