Product Description

After years of requests, the recording of this workshop is finally being made available! You will leave this workshop with a new set of skills that will improve your current work as well as your entire art career.

Drawing from imagination or memory is a critical part of the creative process of the artist going back thousands of years. The Old Masters would develop their compositions first from imagination and only later, if ever, would they bring in models to help them work out their ideas.

Today, drawing from imagination is not only applicable to fine art, but also to concept, visual development, animation, illustration, comics and more. Unfortunately this is a skill that is diminishing today, and many artists are under the mistaken impression that drawing from imagination is only for the most advanced artists. In reality, the artist should be drawing from imagination as well as from reference throughout their entire career.
