If you can't think of anything to draw, then draw lines and shapes. If that's too rigid, just scribble scrabble for a bit. It always helps me too loosen up my mind.

the problem is not what to draw, I have many ideas. The problem is I just can't draw. I can replicate if pic is in front of me but I can't draw from mind or anything original

Learning how to construct a figure helps draw "from mind" but most importantly to learn to draw you must not give up, study outside your comfort zone and keep drawing even if you're not satisfied with the results because improvement is slow

1st drawing
>>
this is one of my more recent drawings. across the span of 3 weeks since i first started drawing, this is how much ive improved. take is as you may, i think that ive improved a lot, and i am pretty satisfied with my progress. your first artwork may look like shit, but if you look at it from an objective sense, register the mistakes youve made, and improve with those in mind, im sure that you can start drawing at the very least decent art in the span of around two weeks.

i personally learned that creating a foundation on which to build anatomy and such is very important, and that without it, your work will look very incoherent and strange.
>>
also these were all drawn with a mouse because im poor so dont use that as an excuse fool

I don't want to make a new thread and bump an old one off so I found this related one, someone pls respond anyways. In the beginning of this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzdN2PYAVJY
She talks about gesture drawing and how it's a great way to build familiarity and a natural style in the beginning, but she also uses some language like "outside the lines" and "your unique marks" and typical art school bullshit.
I don't understand figure drawing or any drawing well enough to know when it's bullshit and when it's useful, so my question is is this good advice that will help me build skill and familiarity faster or is it bullshit that will have me churning out Picasso scribbles instead of decent figures?
>>
I haven't drawn since like middle or high school, every time I try I just feel tired and sad and stop.

>>624836

Start learning about perspective.
I just started learning and even I know it's the foundation of all drawings
