Hiii and thank you!
I think the problem with just drawing from your head is not using reference for drawing. Because we usually think we know what an object/thing look like, but I think we only imagine it vaguely if we don’t use reference or practice enough.
When I think of a drawing, I try to first think of the general feel of the drawing, then of as much details as I want (ex. what is the character doing with their hand? What’s their expression?..etc) , but the final outcome doesn’t have to look like what’s in my head (and 99% it won’t). So yeah, I try to imagine the details, then look for reference for similar poses from google, and then draw!
And then I can change and improve on the pose I referenced!
Best things to practice (imo):
- Facial expressions/emotions
- Drawing from real life
- Actually drawing what you like and what you would like to see
and finally enjoy!
Practice practice practice and don’t give up!
This is just my opinion based on my experience, but I hope it helps somehow :)
