How to think of things to draw

Clean up and organize your drawing tools

Sometimes it can be hard to start drawing ideas easily if you can’t find the tools you need. Putting your drawing tools back in place can give you some ideas of what you can do with them. Still, if you have a lot of tools and time for different media, it becomes distracting for you and has a negative effect rather than negative effect a positive one.

Tools may become discouraging to the drawing if they are unclean; Pastel colors, when placed all on top of each other in one box, look bleak, the watercolor pallet may look brown or muddy due to a lot of mixing colors on it in the previous drawing session, and dozens of unordered wood colors look like a confusing mess, making it difficult for you to choose any shade of the reddish-brown color you want. Choose one surface or notebook and one color type according to what catches your attention the most. Now put the rest aside; Organize everything else, put it where it belongs, and settle in to get you started.

Read, listen to music, dance or do any other creative activity.

What is the shape, color, and texture of these activities? What image (tangible or intangible) do they form? Answer these questions and try to draw a picture of what these activities might look like.

Look at clouds, fire, wall paint, holes in the ceiling, or stars in the sky.

What shapes do you think you see? What would you have to do to mimic those shapes you visit daily? Do these shapes remind you of other pictures you’d like to draw?

Draw people

Human faces come in all shapes and sizes, and you might find drawing hands, legs, and body shapes interesting. Try removing people with different movements, poses, and scenes if you want to portrait them.

Try drawing animals

They can be familiar animals, such as cats, dogs, birds in the house, or wild animals from nature.

Try drawing a plant

The drawing of plant species has a long history that has been used since antiquity to identify and classify plants before the spread of photography. If you are not going to paint realistically, you can draw an artistic fantasy of a plant.

Consult a book

 You could read a bit in a drawing book to get some ideas and find some topics for practice. Or you can even read a non-drawing book, such as a nonfiction book or a nonfiction book, to make your mind move in a new direction. But if you want to get ideas for very imaginative drawings, you can choose a science fiction book or a fantasy book set in a complete fantasy world.

Fall asleep thinking about what you are drawing

Sometimes your creative energy bursts with dreams or the dirty thoughts and half-dreams of your early sleep. Put a notebook next to your bed to record these thoughts, so even if you don’t get inspired, you’ll have some relief.

Draw abstract objects, repeating patterns, and shapes

Arrange the different conditions in a way that you find exciting and dynamic, and then try adding color to them. On the one hand, you can do something soothing but flowery and detailed on the other by making tasteful frame designs or experimenting with imitations of Celtic-like motifs.

Look in your old sketchbooks to get some ideas.

Your drawing of something you drew a long time ago may not have the result you wanted, but if you can now see what’s wrong with the first drawing, you’re halfway there to do it better than before. This can be your eye of inspiration as it also reminds you of how much you have evolved. You can also find gems that you didn’t realize came out of you as good as these drawings can inspire you as well.

Make your habits of drawing and coloring.

Do you always listen to music when you draw? Or do you listen to one tune and not another? Do you like to light incense before you start painting? It may help to clean up your drawing table and your pens before you start. And make yourself a few simple, short rituals that you do in the same order before you start painting to put you in a different mood from everything else in your life. It does not matter what you choose to make your environment conducive to art and painting; The most important thing is for these rituals to become your ticket and help you stimulate your creative habit.

Journal. Even a simple two-minute drawing is an excellent way to make drawing a habit and keep the creativity going. In your busiest time in life, you can set aside two to five minutes for an activity. Your friends will comment on your development and often praise your work. The longer you practice drawing, the better your daily drawing will be than before, which means that the social support circle around you will grow.

Find a place you’ve always wanted to see or visit.

Find out what the place looks like and try to copy this on paper, perhaps finding a picture of the location on the Internet or in a book. Try to notice the details before you begin to transfer the image onto the paper.
