 good design is good design (shapelanguage, rythmn, balance, etc) no matter if its 3d or 2d, used to inform an abstract composition, or a representational figure. you can draw from life all your life without remotely becoming a good designer. you cant spend 30 minutes studying design without becoming a better designer than you were. easy choice for me.
