Re: Is it worth it to learn to use a digital sculpting program?
It's great to be inquisitive and to embrace any means of creation. Were I younger and interested in commercial sculpture applications I would learn the programs.
As it stands, I am not not interested in anything which further ties me to a keyboard, mouse and screen. Digital anything is shortcutting and feels so temporary. Hell, when I want to shoot real pictures, I take out my twenty five year-old Canon F1, load it with film and get down to business. Likewise when I sculpt, I want my hands dirty- I want to smell the clay or wax, and use all the properties of the materials to create a possession in three true dimensions and hold it, molesting the contours and having that tingle run through me.
