How to stop relying on reference and develop your style

No.4197159 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

I learned a lot thanks to this community (I really did, this is not sarcasm) and I want to give something back. I prepared a short guide with advice on how to stop relying on reference and start drawing from imagination in order to develop your own style and actually enjoy drawing. I know a lot of people here struggle with being stuck in the endless grinding/studying phase and they feel like their work lack "soul". This is my take on this issue.

If you feel like you lost your passion for art, dont know what you're even grinding for anymore and generally feel unmotivated as an artist, maybe this could help. This is for everyone and anyone from traditional painters to porn artists, your subject doesn't matter. Let me know whether its helpful at all. Also if you have any ideas on what I should change or add to the guide please do tell me, I really want to develop this resource.

Disclaimer: I am not claiming reference is useless. I know its useful and necessary. This is not what the guide is about. Its for people that cannot draw anything without a reference and dont do any drawings from imagination.

the old thread is gone.
Post your current drawing here and give constructive critique to others! Don't take anything personal!
Please make sure your posted image is clear, downsized to around 1000 pixels wide, rotated to the correct orientation, and that any unused space is cropped.
If you want critique on a drawing from the previous thread, you can delete it there and repost in this one.

Can you just draw your way into cartoony/stylistic art or do you have to grind on fundies to be able to? Is Dodson better fundies if the latter is the case or Loomis or Bridgman?

Why is there no curriculum to follow for a fantasy illustrator wannabes? There are people who want to get good in 6 months or in a year to the point they can earn money (they don't have to be good by objective standards, just skilled enough to get paid at all).

When I browse old blogs of people like Dave Rapoza, Mike Azevedo, Even Amundsen and so on, they were getting paid while producing stuff that barely could fit into /int/ general.

I don't get it. This is something anyone could do in a certain period of time if there was a path to follow but nobody really cares to put this stuff out. It's all just vague "stay in an atelier for 5 years" or other bullshit where there is no time frame to get things really done. Artist communities should spend more time on thinking how to get things done instead of thinking in abstract terms. Getting good is important and it's important to get results fast.
