Hi all I have some questions about drawing off the top of your head.
I'm really into comic book art and I see in comic books there are like a million different intense poses in each comic book.
Is this usually done with a reference or all off the imagination?
do the comic book artists typicaly use guides?
Ask this because my cousin use to have this friend and he could just sit down and just draw all these crazy characters right off the dome and in pen no less.
for example he could just sit down and draw alien (from the movie alien) in any pose he wanted. and it looked exactly like the real thing.
so I guess I kinda answer my own question if it is possible.
But is it possible for anyone to learn to do this?
Or is it just a rare gift that only a few have?
This fustrates me because I can draw off the top of my head. I have very strong imagination. But it seems when I try to draw the image I see in my head it comes out differently than the way I see it in my head.
I certanily can't draw other peoples creations off the top of my head in the exact format and detail as the orginal.
Any one know how long it takes for something like this develop if it is possible?
