Stopped in mid-air

1 Feb

So, this is my first drawing since I’m awake, and hopefully not my last. I stopped drawing once I realized the head is too large in comparison to the wheels.

Stopped in Mid-air

Getting the proportions right is hard. However, I got some insight from this drawing. When sketching the wheel on the left, I saw it formed in my mind before I drew it. I got a three-dimensional “flash of foresight” how it would look on paper before I drew it.

So, that is what this “holding in memory” is all about. I have to delve deeper into this. I know how to look and how to draw, but I still am having problems with the how to hold part. I think this is crucial. How do you hold what you’ve just seen into memory, and how do you translate that into drawing?

That is all.
