this may be the most dumb question ever, but what if you want to draw something straight from your brain? Like not draw another image. My thoughts are kinda too fuzzy to make out shapes

I think that's what most people want to accomplish, being able to draw from the imagination. Most people do have problems pulling images from their heads and putting it on paper; like you said, things look fuzzy, and that's normal because our brains aren't meant to be cameras and to absorb every detail.

But the brain does store images the more you draw them. Lots of people I've asked who are good at drawing people/characters say they took life-drawing classes and drew real people or copied pictures from manga or comic books. They eventually learned how to draw anatomy and faces and things like that through copying until they were able to do it on their own. Through spending time figuring out how to draw something through copying, you may get a better understanding of it.

Oh yeah, I would suggest using a website like www.quickposes.com to practice drawing poses if you aren't able to draw from real life. Lookup gesture drawings and do those to get the basic idea of a pose. You could also get some manga books and study the drawings to get an idea of anatomy. This is all just if you would be interested in drawing people. If not, you could do the same for dragons or landscapes or things like that. You can definitely learn by being observant. I hope this helps!

I thought talent is when you get better at something with less effort than other people.

Except that "Talent is a lie" is just a lie to keep people without talent motivated

Artsy talent is the most common talent people pop out of their moms vaginas with

Yes, but when people talk about talent they're talking about the combination of physical aspects, such as a steady hand or good eyesight, and mental aspects such as a certain viewpoint, that mean that compared to someone else without training they'll have an easier time learning and completing an action.
Talent isn't some mystical magical concept.

more like to give lazy people an excuse to not work.
Sure, some people are born with higher artistic ability, but in the long run their 'talent' gets them nowehre if they're not willing to work on it.

That may be true as well, however that was not my point.

I was saying that the statement "Talents is a lie" is a fallacy and people are in fact being born with talent.

How they decide to use it (be it polishing it or abandoning it) is their problem and their decision

I just woke up from my nap and I found, literally like 49 notifications only in this post.
That means is thanks time.


First, I didn't thought that this thing would become so popular to reach front page idk why, i'm a negative person so this is or if that even works, there's some time (around 1-2 years) I haven't done a copy from something and I can't do anything but formless and sometime creepy things. For example, the picture in this comment.

I'm glad some people found this useful, and more than that, I'm glad they shared their own works, even if its a copy, everybody puts something of themselves in every line.

I envy all of you, brilliant *************. <3

Thank you! Now I no longer have to make the "god given talent is ********" rant. That's seriously a load off of my mind!

Shading is hard. I'm used to using lines but should I try to switch to circles? I think it's good for color pencils but for sharp mech leads it (the desired shade) just comes out uneven.
