Honestly, as someone who's pursuing storyboard illustration in a commercial market, my (incredibly awesome no less) art teacher taught us this. He said the biggest obstacle was abandonning preconceptions (Drawing what you think is there, instead of drawing what's actually there).

He also knew that a lot of starting artists get discouraged because of how they can't draw very well so they give up. To compensate for that, he had the notion that "Get the technique down first, quality will follow." So for homework we had to draw (quite literally) one hundred heads. He showed us how to do a very basic human head and said "As long as I can tell it's a head, it's a head. Doesn't matter if it looks like a two year old did or Leonardo da Vinci did it" And everyone did a hundred heads. And hey, everyone got better.

Another motivational lesson he gave us was that, if you're doing art for someone that isn't yourself, it isn't up to you to decide whether or not its good. Quite verbatim "You don't know what good is." That's for the person buying your art to decide. If you draw something you think is a piece of crap and the person you're selling it to absolutely loves it, you did a good job because your goal as an illustrator is to sell.

I really liked him. If more people had him as a teacher then a lot of people would be much better drawers because he had a very hands on, practical and thoroughly knowledgeable approach to learning how to draw.

they say that works with forging signatures too, turning them upside down so you dont see them as letters.

OP, this is going to be really useful to show my friends, thanks.

Once people have learned to follow this, they can start combining references to make something new.

<Pic related, I combined images of an iguana, snake and a bat to make this.

I used to draw a lot with paper and pen, but I've switched to digital art over the past couple years. I enjoy it much more.

THANK YOU
no one ever understands when I try to explain that you just have to draw what you see and not what you think its supposed to look like
