Imagination Drawing

Learn to draw amazing creatures and fun inventions all from your imagination! Drawing from photos is what must students try to learn, but drawing from your imagination is much better!  Don’t want to be a slave to photographs! You want the freedom to create from your own ideas. As an artist, you need to express your thoughts and have people understand them. Most people believe you either have an imagination or you don’t. The truth is like any other muscle you can develop and grow your imagination! Imagine that!  Imagination drawing is all about tapping into your storytelling skills. It is a mixture of memory drawing and the studies you have made. For instance, you can’t draw an elephant dancing ballet unless you have first studied elephant anatomy. You also need to have had some ballet dancing reference in your head and of course, you should know how the human figure works. Once you have all of that, you can tap into that and draw straight from your head!
