    It's one thing to draw imaginary characters and people form mind, it's another to create a portrait from mind. It's a good excercise trying to figure out how a friend looks from your minds eye but I doubt any serious portrait artist draw from mind without any kind of reference.

    But I would assume android could draw himself from mind by now :]

    yeah good point, but i thought about how going on the progress, if i think about friends faces i think i know them very well until i try to put it on to the paper...
    i often have more feelings than i do excactly know the features.

    for example i know one friend has somehow sad eyes but how to get this feeling on the paper...

    drawing (realistic) from the mind is just to remember how things look like. it´s the same with working from reference. you look at a photo, then on the paper trying to remember what you just have seen, look again at the photo, again at the drawing.... -it´s only more time between looking at things and drawing them.
    good practice would be, to look very careful at a photo, put it away and draw the whole thing without looking at the photo again.

    yeah thats it.
    but some faces are pretty easy to remember so that you can fake them in a way because u can focus on outstanding things...
