Draw Your Mind Out: How to Create Without Thinking by LadyAway
Draw Your Mind Out: How to Create Without Thinking

Artists are usually pictured as spontaneous, slightly crazy individuals. When they get inspired, they forget about everything and just... create. 

However, when you're merely a beginner artist, it doesn't seem to work like this. Yes, you get inspired, but you can't allow yourself to forget about everything—instead, you go and search for a reference or two, or a tutorial, or a set of tips. In the process you lose your primary idea and modify it to what you're learning. You want to draw a new species of big cats? Sorry, there's no tutorial for the vision in your head, but here's how to draw a tiger.

The problem is, you can't become that free-drawing artist before passing through the learning phase. "Senior" artists simply have their heads full of various memory-references created consciously at one time of their lives, and they use them while working without any visible reference. 

But that doesn't mean you're fated to draw only generic things until you reach this phase. Follow me to see a method of drawing your mind out, even when you have no idea what it is you want to draw!

How to draw crocodilians by LadyAway
How to draw crocodilians
Although crocodiles aren't the closest extant relatives of dinosaurs, they surely don't look much different than them. Big, scaly, ferocious, with huge jaws full of sharp teeth—they make a good reference for dragons, don't they? Let's take a look at four species of crocodilians (the family of crocodiles): the well known crocodiles and alligators, and lesser known species such as caimans and gharials.

Grayscale to color: paint a Winged Hussar in PS by LadyAway
Grayscale to color: paint a Winged Hussar in PS

The Winged Hussars were an elite cavalry unit of Poland, invincible for almost two centuries, often defeating enemies many times more numerous. They're the national pride of Poles—a symbol of the greatest time in our history. Besides that, they simply look epic, so they're a great topic for an epic painting.

Now, I've never painted a hussar before. Therefore, it will not be only a tutorial about digital painting, but also about preparation for drawing something accurately, even if you have no previous experience at this. 

I'll show you how to prepare the composition and how to shape basic lighting into full detail shading. Then you'll learn how to add vivid colors to a grayscale painting, and how to manage recurrent details without having to copy and paste them. I'll also explain the difference in shading different materials, like metal, horse hair, and cloth. 

The most important lesson you may take from this tutorial, though, is how to manage the whole process of painting to keep control over it in every phase.… (seriously, check it out, this is one of my best tutorials so far)
How many times you stopped what you were doing just to check your e-mail, dA, facebook, watch a funny clip on youtube, only because your task seemed too hard for a while? Sometimes you just want to take a break, but without admitting it to yourself. And if you try to fight it, you'll end up hating your task more and more.

I found a nice workaround for this. Anytime you feel tired/bored/discouraged, come to posemaniacs and draw a few random poses. This way you won't waste your time, you'll take a break and when it gets too hard, well, maybe your main task will appear more attractive..? And remember—every sketched pose makes you better at creating your own!

Is wyvern a dragon? 

88 deviants said Yes, it's a kind of dragon (every wyvern is a dragon, not every dragon is a wyvern)
40 deviants said No, it's only related to dragons (smaller, more common species)
8 deviants said WTF is a wyvern?
