How would I shorten the delay in your second exercise? As a man with Aspergers and A.P.D (Auditory Processing Disorder), I've felt insecure about my processing being slower compared to everyone else's. I don't want to force myself to be frustrated and scared to get caught by someone while I was secretly drawing them in public. I just felt like I'm thrown in there without any idea what to do. I would feel worthless, like I did back my computer art class back at high school, where I was just thrown in there, without knowing what I was doing. Everyone else in my class seemed to know what they were doing but I felt like the only retard with special needs in the class. Does go back to practicing basic anatomy? Would I have to do that first, by myself before drawing in public?

Alice Borealis says:

I don't like the idea that you present that "drawing from imagination is going to be the last things you're going to learn" when you should be doing that and practicing that all the time if your goal is creative work. If you do what he did and waited 10 years before you draw from imagination you'll have a good technical ability but that's all you'll have.

AFK4Realz says:

are you born with imagination or is it learned?

Debbie Sunlight says:

Thank you for all you do.

Sebastian Helm says:

Nice plant you got there in the background!

My memory is terrible. I have short term memory issues so quite often I'll talk and right in the middle of a sentence my mind goes blank. It's worse when I'm stressed and makes it super hard to do job interviews and stuff. I originally started drawing as a memory exercise and it has helped a lot. I still suck, but so far it's the only thing that's even scratched the surface:)
38:00 Also that piece of advice right there was super helpful! Thank you, I feel like sometimes I get stuck staring at a blank page when in reality there is inspiration all around me.

Is there a photo of a dragon? (3.11) 🙂

Omar Abdul Hassan Hassad Ahbad Ali Shahid Muhammad says:

One thing that really helped me on this skill was to draw everyday for a few weeks without any reference. This actually forced my mind to visualize more accurately and acquire a better sense of transferring that visualization from the mind to paper. Also I really really wanted to draw from imagination better so passion is important too.

Luke chudleigh says:

Just curious wouldn't it be easier to use a couple different references and combining them to make something new?

NaturalGee says:

To be able to draw from imagination all you need is to practice and patience.

Jakierria Williams says:

it look like a deep freezer

Petra P. says:

awesome lesson, really useful.
But what's wrong with the sound?( it sounds metallic

Vee•Sent•Days’ -EnDZ says:

Awesome!! I have trouble blocking in anything I want draw.I'm so off when I try to fill in that circle with facial features and limiting that circle just to the head,I end up extending that circle like 10 times bigger with facial features and the head is extended.Any tips on how to block in and stay focus to fill in that circle with the whole head and facial features???? It's like that with everything I draw,and my proportions are way off as well,man and I been drawing on and off for years.

Derdoppelgaenger says:

Beginning: "I'm so excited to try out all those exercices!"
45 minutes later: "Somebody get me the hell outta here." (insert Young Frankenstein meme).

Seriously though, this helps. I never know what to draw from my imagination and I think my sketchbooks are kind of boring to most people. I need to practice these. Thank you!

charles butts says:

Lots of help, but the audio sucks & is quite annoying.

dylan maxwell says:

it seems you don't enjoy doing this. You seem exasperated and impatient.
