Will practicing sculpting be any use to a painter/drawer? Aside from studying light. I know Loomis said the skills are somewhat interchangeable
Either way, what would be a good way to get started?
I was wondering the same, I made some test with sculptris ( the free part of zbrush) and it's surprisingly hard.
I really think it could be a very good training to internalise body and face proportion and to develop 3d visualisation.
I've learned more from my head drawing studies after doing a sculpture than before
Getting to know space and mass gives you a new depth, and what you're able to perceive is the limit to your skill
Also most master sculptors were fucking amazing drawers, like Michelangelo, Bernini, Rodin
