I was analyzing my drawings and I started questioning whether my work involved any creativity at all. I realized I'm purely a technical artist and I'm just copying what I look at.
I think creativity is feeling something, going with the flow, and doing stuff off the top of your head. Like in respect to figure drawing, I think creativity is finding that hidden line of action and accenting it. Or looking at a curve of the body and simplifying it while maintaining its essence.
Is it possible to learn that stuff? Because I can't do it! How exactly do you learn to look at something, like say a normal, non-athletic leg with subtle curves and some awkward lines, and convert that in your head and onto paper into something efficiently beautiful?
How do you learn to draw from your head and go with the flow? Or how can I practice it?
