I love to draw. I use photos or live models for poses and human forms usually. If I don't it can take forever to get proportions right, but mostly I just draw from what is in my head... and what's in my head is not an image. I can't explain how it works, but it something like having a conceptual map instead of a visual map. I asked an professional artist friend about this and, although he can visualize, he says he sometimes does and sometimes doesn't. That makes me think creating art and creating a mental image are not strictly tied together.

In this one, I looked at a Rembrandt sketch to get the pose correct, and I think I had a picture of a mouse for reference, but I can't recall for sure. The dress and the trees and the path - everything else, I drew just from my imagination.

In this one, I referenced a picture of a skull, but it wasn't a melting ice skull. The chain was drawn from scratch.

And this fantasy landscape was completely from scratch with nothing to reference.

Those are some very nice drawings, thank you for sharing. :)

Thanks, Velvet! I'm just a hobbyist artist, but I enjoy it. I was mainly trying to show that just because you can see images in your mind, doesn't me you can't remember what things look like or use your imagination to make up something. :)
