I want to take a course to become a Graphic Artist, but can not draw well. Is that going to be expected of me?
I have known several people who have gone into Graphic Design without a great amount of drawing skill.
Today you can create most of your graphics and designs on the computer and with use of technology.
However, you might want to try and brush up on some drawing techniques as well. Just to be safe.
If you take courses in Graphic Design they will vastly improve your drawing capabilities.
Drawing is a learned talent, not some sort of gift.
Whether you turn out to be a great artist is when it is a gift.
I would say go for it, I took some graphic design classes and was SUPER happy with the results!
Art, like all things, can be learned if you are willing to work hard at it. You may never be Michelangelo, but you might develop a style all your own.
That said, perhaps the field you’d rather try is graphic design, which enables you to create a visual message by assembling other art components in creative new ways.
well if you talk to any artist they will tell you “anyone can draw” and when people hear this they are like no way in hell can anyone draw look at me i can only draw stick figures! If its your dream to become a graphic designer go for it! don’t let anyone stop you! But i would draw everyday, start to drawl simple things and as you practice start to draw more complex drawling. if you draw everyday im telling you your art will improve! its not going to be an overnight change! but you will improve. but you have to try adn draw everyday and practice whenever you can! good luck to you! hope this helped!
You can still be a graphic designer, but you will be limited. I believe in today’s society you will be worth more to a business if you can draw as well. An example in today’s world would be an animator who can also design 3-D models. It simply just goes together and in my college at least, drawing classes are required for a graphic design major.
I’ve taken three graphic design classes, two drawing classes, and 2 illustration classes. I’m very into being original, so I like to make sure everything I design is 100% original and by me, not borrowing photos and such. I never took a class, but I also do photography, which I have applied to projects. (A normal digital camera is all you need, no special equipment. Any gain in quality is lost unless you are going to print an advertisement 100 meters long.)
I wasn’t very good at drawing before taking classes, but now i’m in the top of my class.
Drawing is an art that is a little different from Graphic Arts. But the drawing skill helps in the development of the graphic art.drawing is a basic art but the graphic art is not. So i dont find any reason why a graphic artist must be a drawer. You can very well go for the graphic art & succeed. Go ahead.
No! A graphic art course will make you more skilled in the area of drawing. Look at Weta Digital, the guys who did the effects for ‘The Lord of The Rings’ films and ‘King Kong’ – sure, Weta Workshop can draw, but Weta Digital can’t. They just do the computer stuff.
Physical drawing and computer design are quite different. But in turn, when you are good at graphic design, you will learn to see the whole wide world as art, so you will therefore develop those desired skills.
Good luck with your course and your career!
