I am about to get my bachelors from the school i am at now, but i feel as if i have come out of it with just a bit more then i came into it with. I know some basic 3d modelling with 3ds max, and i have recently began to teach myself a bit of photoshop. None of which i am really all that good at.
I am still planning on continueing self learning, but i have begun to feel, at least when it comes to what i want to do in photoshop, that a traditional art is where i need to learn some of. I seriously have no skill whatsoever in that area. I would really like to get into painting in photoshop, while i was younger in school. that was something i liked to do, but never really went anywhere outside of the classroom to do it.
I am really curious what you alls thoughts are on this... i want to continue with 3d as well.. but as i am not really into animation, i would like to really create still images, and i have looked around and it seems many of them also have a deal of painting done in those images as well.
Not that i am basing my entire decision on what i hear here... just to get a perspective from elsewhere... what are anyone here thoughts on getting at least a basic understanding of some of the traditional art principles for working in 3d and photoshop?
