Drawing from your head

Here is another one. Someone asked about drawing from your head, or drawing people in action. I usually imagine what I will put down one piece at a time or imagine the arm in a new spot and decide if I want to move it. i can't quite imagine the entire pose clearly like some people do, but I'm working my way towards being able to do that. For quick sketch, or action poses from life, I try to remember 1 or 2 important things and make up the rest.

  1. Great stuff as usual Rad! I hear you on trying to imagine the whole pose clearly first. Any tips on how you are going about getting better at this?

  5. I'm such a lurker, so this is my first post. I love this blog, and your ideas for breaking things down (not just this post, but others as well) are really great. I know this will be so helpful with drawing from life quickly, something that always gives me a hard time. Thank you!

  6. Very nice post indeed. I would add, imho, that seeing the picture in your head before you draw is also very valauble. Maybe on can combine that with this method, trying to see very basic forms in his/her mind first, then draw it, as good as possible.
    cheers!
