Humans from 35,000 years ago could not draw so well. The humans became extinct. They had large brains and made tools, but found it difficult to draw. Later humans drew animals on rocks and cave walls. A professor studied drawings of animals made 30,000 years ago in the south of France.

The professor said hunting skills affected drawing skill. Later humans hunted dangerous animals. This needed good hand-eye movement. Humans who lived over 35,000 years ago could not use their hand-eye movement to draw. Later humans used drawings to plan hunting and to discuss which part of an animal's body to hit.
