So you know, the left part of your brain is associated with all the stuff that are logical and rational and calculated, while the right side is said to be more about emotions and intuitions.
The thread is not to debate whether that is true or not, I just thought it would sound better to put the title like this instead of "do you draw with your rational and logical thinking blablabla...".
So basically, I'm wondering about what you all go through when you draw :
Do you reason a lot when you draw, do you have to consciously remember all the rules you learned and carefully apply them by rationally thinking of everything you're doing ?
Or does it all just come together in the back of your mind, and then drawing just happens, almost like magic, almost like your hand just knows where to go to achieve what you want without you having to think about anything rationally ?
Personally I struggle a lot thinking clearly and logically about drawing, I can not for the most part reason with it, I mostly just witness drawing happening instead of really doing it, my hand just knows where to go (of course based on all the information I learned in the past and the images I came across) and while I use logical thinking AFTER drawing something to evaluate how correct it is and decide if I have to change it, I can't really do it DURING the process of drawing.
I wouldn't say I use my emotions to draw, drawing has never been a way for me to to vent or something (but an escape, yes) but my drawing is very instinctive. I use my emotions to draw expressions tho, I kinda have to feel the mood of the persona to be able to convey it.
