Talking about improving your visual memory on the LIA Cast with Brandon Dayton!
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the best drawings you make are the ones for which you have a very clear mental picture? Have you ever tried to draw something from reference materials and just can't accurately capture it? Is the first situation simply a moment of "inspiration," and the second situation "artistic funk"?
How might things change if we consider the difference between seeing and object and perceiving an object? By improving our visual memory skills, might we one day be able to draw entirely from memory like Kim Jun gi?
This time we have a discussion on the role of perception in illustration with guest Brandon Dayton, who shares some tips on how to improve your visual memory and draw with improved accuracy.
