Posing a model for still art?

I'm thinking about getting into 3d modeling as a hobbie and would like to create still art.

I'd like to know if you have to animate the model before you can pose it for still art or is that not required? I'm only asking because, just from skimming the forums it sounds as if animating the models are really hard. I could be wrong...

You can certainly pose without animating, but you'll still have to create a bone setup and skin weight that setup(which can be a bit of a pain) before posing it.

Unless of course you're using ZBrush.

What can ZBrush do?

You can also pose meshes without any bones or rigging, you just have to select areas you want to "rotate" and use pivot point on screen to pose them...probably doesn't make sense, but it's pretty damn useful and fast.

Zbrush has a plugin called transpose master, essentially what i described above except it's even faster and more user friendly, but still comparable.
