Tut - How to fight your brain by Minzile Tut - How to fight your brain by Minzile
its done! :) my first tutorial. some things you might not know about drawing and your brain jet. common mistakes , an exercise. all the heart wants.

i own all the images used in this myself. you might use them as a reference if you want to but don't manipulate or something like that.

would be happy to see your pics if you take some things out of this :). just show me and i'll take a look.

so sharpen your pencils and go!

if you want to have more of that stuff read
books from Betty Edwards

Tut - How to fight your brain by *Minzile -- Suggester's words: I think it's really helpful for everyone who struggles with drawing realism, and it goes straight to the point in a lighthearted manner. ( Suggested by AzureEcho and Featured by FantasyStock )

Very interesting! This helps quite a lot. While drawing, you don't necessarily need to think. Thanks~ :aww: I will see how this can change my art.

Funny enough I was explaining this technique to friends last night, they seems rather bemused to say the least. I was taught to draw like this from a very young age and have always adopted this method.
Congratulations on a wonderful tute, you have explained it better than I could ever have and used humour to emphasise it.. BRAVO

Too cool! Funny thing is that I realised this only a few days ago when I drew a picture – and now I am reading about it. :la: Oh yeah! :D
