a question , the future of 2D?

Hi,



Just wondering about stuff, and thought I would a question, all I need from you is your honest opinions, it would really help me out



Will 2D last? I don’t think that it could happen, but could 2d ever get completely replaced by 3D? Please let me know what you think,



Thank you

This is kind of a silly question when you think about it.

As long as people draw, and paint, there will always be 2-D. Cavemen started this artform, and it has a lot more use. Even 3-D artists use cell shading to produce 2-D-like images.

Plus... not every artist wants to use a computer...

Just from an economy viewpoint, a great many still images are easier to produce in 2d than in 3d.

Everyone said Cg would kill stop motion...

Stop motion is stronger than ever.

This is very true, there's at least two stop motion movies coming out that i'm aware of (Wallace and Grommit and the Corpse Bride)

Films like Spirited Away prove that there's plenty of life left in 2d. Not to mention great shows on TV like Family Guy and Venture Bros that I can't really imagine working in 3D.

As long as there are people on the earth 2D will be popular.

Has the automobile eliminated the horse, has the television stopped radio? People like horses, people like/need radio and people love 2D.

Just because creating 3D objects/scenery has become easier doesn't mean all the other styles, techniques and mediums are history.

Sorry if it sounds harsh but, I've always thought that there is no stupid answer, there is only stupid (flawed) questions. This post has proved me right.

Art is a language of expression, and it will presist as long as humans do not suffer a genetic mutation on a mass scale that will inhibit there communicative abilities.

There are many examples in history, one would think of the theological prohibition of characterization of people and animals in the Islamic arts many centuries ago, and what happened, artists came up with remarkable new ways of artistic works of "Islamic Patterns" that relied heavily on math, sophisticated geometry and proportions.

To understand how the future will go, you will have to examine your present and understand where it came from.

best,

You guys have to remember, a lot of these types of questions are asked by very young people who are probably still in puberty. They haven't had any life experience or gained tnough knowledge yet--that's why these questions are asked. So, no, the question isn't silly--it's just about right for that age group.

2D art will never die
3D may the the direction of the future, but I doubt that 2D art will fall to the wayside as an antiquated, outdated pastime.

I think that, even when entire 3D virtual environments are developed like Star Trek holodecks that people could enter, walk around, explore, interact with artist-designed 3D characters - that paintings and drawings by 2D, more "traditional" one could then say, artists, would still never be viewed as "hopelessly out of fashion".

True art, and appreciation for true art, will not die, no matter how many dimensions it has - 2, 3, 4....

I don't think it will 'die' out, just as much photography didn't kill painting in the 19th century, or computer technology replacing paper/books. The nature of how it's being used might change, but not the skill an-sich.

It will never die, just as painting and sculpting will never die.

The tools we use may change, but it will stay.

There are some people who claim as soon as your work is touched by a computer in a digital way that it's no longer "art"


and, Stop motion may be getting stronger, but it's still not used as widely as it used to be.

Problem is, most artists don't want to think about the technical bull#$% that goes along with 3d, 2d has only one barrier, your hand, or the pencil...hmm... 3d has many technical hurdles that one must overcome to achieve a finished image. Zbrush is getting very close...but, it's still not quite there.

IMO, all 3d packages are seriously lacking because it can't see whats inside my head and make it so! but I love to do it anyway...

I find drawing very relaxing, my mind, my pencil, and the paper.

disclaimer: I have no idea what I'm talking about, I stopped taking my medication.

I'm a 3D artist, but I think that 3D is nothing without 2D. If there wouldn't be, then 3D would be 1D [3D-2D].

And yes, as someone said. In 2D you paint as you want, and if you know how to paint, then fast! In 3D you gotta know a lot more to "draw" and o know how the application renders.
