I think aphantasia has guided what kind of art I'm good at and enjoy. I love 2D animation, and repetitive yet organic designs. I have a very acute sense of what "feels" right in art, which perhaps makes up for being able to visualize what I'm going to make in advance.
Here's a recent obsession of mine artistically and the rest here aimeeseaver.blogspot.com/search/label/gif.

Amazing!
The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Adobe Flash. I turn my pencil drawing illustrations into vector pieces and then animate those pieces. I can layer them and offset their timing to create mesmerizing animation compositions.
I'm not sure how to describe actually conceptualizing it before animating it. I don't "see" it obviously... but I can feel what the motion I want is in a kind of physical motion sense. Then I rearrange elements until it starts to come together as a whole. There's usually 2 or 3 versions of each piece that didn't quite work out before I come to a final draft. That's pretty normal for a lot of artists regardless of aphantasia though.

This is a clear proof that you girl are in a wrong community. It's way too good, in terms of how creative it appears, to be from a blind mind's eye!
Unless ofcourse you had some refrence or a guide present.

Btw what a blog you have! :woohoo:
?

These are beautiful. I love the colours you use. :)
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else

Lol, glad you like my work, and ouch!
I definitely have Aphantasia, there is no doubt of that. I went through years of art school to get a BFA in Animation + Illustration and trained myself to draw without a visual imagination. I can draw these designs free hand anywhere anytime and they are my own style and creation that I've taken years to settle on and love. The only reference I use when animating is the drawings I already did free hand and reference free. =P
Aphantasia is absolutely NOT a disability when it comes to creating original beautiful art, as I'm sure other artists in this community can attest. <3
