Studying Figure drawing for all it's worth - Andrew Loomis
I am studying the book of Andrew Loomis figure drawing for all it's worth, I live in Brazil.
I have a question. I can not understand what he means on page 16 at the end of the second paragraph:
"It has taken me a lifetime to realize that. So before we talk at all about drawing, it is important to sell you strongly on yourself, to plant that urge so definitely in your consciousness that you – must know at once that most of it comes from the other end of your pencil rather than the business end". (the section in red).
Could someone please explain me to understand this.

He means that the crucial things in drawing happen in your head, not on paper.

I thought he meant the eraser end
It all depends on where you stick your pencil, and how far you push it in...
