post and rate OCs (i know you have them) talk about character design
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.
