Question: Any other artists have the same problem I have!?
I always visualize what I'm about to draw!. I keep the image in my mind but for some reason I can never draw it on paper!.

Are there any methods I can use that will help me improve!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

My technique for drawing from memory is to visualize the image on the blank sheet of paper!. Then, all I have to do is "trace" the image that I "see!."

However, this techniques is not so much taught as it is practiced!.

And, you can see by the common theme of most of the other answers is that practice is the real answer!. If you can visualize the image in the "canvas" of your mind, then practice this same kind of visualization while looking at your blank drawing paper!. When you "see" it, then QUICKLY block in a quick sketch before you lose it!. Don't spend a lot of time doing the details!. Go back and do them later!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I used to have this same problem!. What you need is direction & that can be provided in a class!. After I took a class at my local community center, it really opened my creative mind & I am finally able to not only have fun drawing, but I can actually picture something & put it on paper!. also, try drawing something simple at first & usually you will start to see something happen you didn't think of!. Remember whatever you do, just have fun with it because the second you start pressuring yourself, nothing happens!. also, try listening to music while you draw; this has really helped me!.!.!.keep practicing!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Practice and study the art of drawing (possibly with a teacher)!. I am a musician (primarily instrumental) and songwriter, but I had the same problem with writing songs!. I could hear them fine in my head but I could not reproduce them in my voice!. However, some time with a real good vocal teacher and a lot of practice solved that problem!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It goes the same for anybody who wants to write a song!.He's got the potential but there is this factor that prevents you from unleashing to put it into reality!.You might want to relax,don't pressure yourself and take your time!.Let your imagination run wild and be positive!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
