God damn, nigga
I cant draw SHIT without a reference

Sucks to be you, Proko

>> No.4150337

Draw something with reference, then draw it again without reference. It's no problem really, you just need to build your mental visual library.

>> No.4150339

I've been doing exactly that for a decade and a half.

>> No.4150345

Man draw with the reference using another pose , angle etc Eventually you willget yourvisual library

>> No.4150351

Are you just copying? Or are you thinking about what you're drawing and the way it exists in a third dimensional space? Try to visualize it as a 3d object while drawing it.

>> No.4150353

Referenced work, life or not, and imaginary work are very different things.

You don't know that because you haven't read any books and it shows.

>> No.4150401

if you cant draw anything from imagination even though you do work from reference then you aren't doing proper studies, just mindless copies. analyse the shit you're drawing, make notes. you're literally supposed to remember what you're drawing so you can reproduce that later on entirely from memory.

basic knowledge about perspective helps with rotating your reference and drawing it from different angles.

also, you should just literally start drawing from imagination even if it looks like absolute crap now. just draw, turn the page and draw another one, keep drawing, you wont learn shit if you just give up because "you cant draw". if you draw 5 shitty hands then you'll probably come to a conclusion that you need to check for reference and you'll start actually learning from refs instead of being a human xero machine.

what kind of weird-ass brush are you using. Turn down the flow and turn off size jitter so you don't get such drastic changes in brush size.

>> No.4150439

the default brush that came with the application.

what happened to "no rules, just tools!"

>> No.4150444

Anon... I'm so sorry...

>> No.4150447

If you don't realize how it's hindering you then I'm afraid to say you will never get good.

Also you arent actually op, he would be aware enough to notice that drawing without reference isnt his issue if his drawing looked like that after 15 years

>tfw you've been drawing from imagination and are independent from references
Who /original/ here?

>> No.4150515

Do you have aphantasia?

>> No.4150768

the thing about digital is that I want to try and mimic the feel of traditional as much as possible. That brush looks like you took a filbert and dunked it in two inches of black paint.

>> No.4150790

It's one thing to be able to draw from imagination and another to have good ideas
