About This Class

Do you think "I don't have enough talent for creative stuff" ?

I have good news for you: thats bonkshot!

You will learn strategies and techniques i discovered and developed along the way which help you to empty your mind and just get going.

I will talk about my journey as a graphic designer who never believed in himself and how i changed my mindset and still do.

You’ll learn how to perceive yourself differently regards drawing. And you’ll get a glimpse on how it is to see.

This course is designed for everyone who can write her or his name, so basically everyone.


Sounds good? Let's go!

Material you will need:
- Paper

P. S.

I intentionally kept my bloopers, blackouts and moments when i was freezing internally in the videos because i wanted it as raw as possible. I also wanted to show you that we are all human and “mistakes” are an essential part of the process. The more mistakes you make the more success you will have!

So you it is the development. So it's just a process, really. Grosses. Okay, See you later. 5. Empty Your Mind: Drawing Lifelines: Hello. Take a most come back to exercise two D exercise. Teoh. This exercise was designed to shift from the Left Hemisphere logical hemisphere. So you arrived creative in towards a hitman atmosphere because it's too complex and too much data for the left. You would get more in a moment. You calm down, there's no future and there is no past. Make sure make sure papers totally out of your focus. Let's go. That's let's go. And it's good, Captain, we clothe. So, uh, before we draw the life friends, we should do a woman exercise. It's very important. So what do you do with your little finger? Three times This comes this. No. So does this. My And these are my life once and all the elements. It's worlds. So what I do? Uh, just look at my start, letting totally to see you take my time. You re less my friends, their extreme made looks more the ship from left hemisphere too, right? This could be We take five minutes. 10 minutes. That's up to you. So you go. I was drawing for approximately three minutes. Four minutes on. Get this. My drawing off my life. Really some lights before some I didn't realize before. So help you concede hope to contrast this high enough. And you, Um yeah. So, basically, you can take any complex pattern like a bark from a tree or, I don't know, a complex pattern from shirt from some clothing store. And then you give to go if your nose, uh, anxious or mood, just do this for a woman Exercise. Yeah. You can start you. You're actually wrong. You can enjoy it more so see you in the next life. 6. What do you see?: work on big toe perception Exercise one. What do you see? Yeah. So I'm asking you, What do you see here? What? Flora? No. What's wrong? What do you see? Flow. What do you see? Really? A flower? No, Just look closer. What? You actually see strokes and shapes? Some strokes are thicker. Some strokes are thinner. Uh, and combined, They are making the illusion. Uh, how can you say horror, Graham? Ah, something like this often often flower. So that's the reason you are struggling. We've ah, during what you see. Because actually, when you draw something, uh, from she know, I lost last threat. Um, did did the debate diverted That, uh, different evident it did do, do, do, do do do Do do. So, uh, there was actually in war going on between your brain and your eyes and your hands so you can say between your brain and your hand Eye coordination did say you want to draw just falling for flow on you sheet of paper and then you start ruling. The chances are much higher than then. Did you that you that you draw a slower? We just thought in your brain instead of the quarter flour, which is on the piece of paper. So did work. That's the reason I was choosing the the lifeline exercise before it was distress you as well to be more in the moment and really draw what you see and not what is in your brain. So, yeah, I think about it. Or let it sink in this information. Um, yeah, and, uh, soon the next lecture. Enjoy. 7. Drawing gently: one. Uh, what? Nobody to perception Exercise, too. Psaltis drawing So But let's talk about myself first. I used to draw, Let's say, press like an elephant. They cause if it subconsciously huge pressure. So this was off course reflecting. You can say it's a perfect mirror off your internist. After a while, actually, many years I realized, impressing wayto I want to enjoy joy, make more most strokes. So and then after a while, I realized how was pressing Maybe the dates of the So let's stop exercise. So for their exercise, I have chosen December for incident. Yes. Yeah. Affinity beans. So no process for so be it. In this case, you take and then you draw. I do this, you go. You feeling how hard pressed? Then you be the impressive you think hard on. Do you suffer that? So a little slide off your hands, we'll feel refused. Yeah, you chose, um, spirals. You see the paper or it doesn't. So you told us virus. Find the sweet spot off the pressure on and it's not too soft. 8. Class Project: "My ugly Masterpiece": All right, So now it's time for a class project. Draw something.
