Hello anons.

My primary hard drive just up and died, along most of my drawings, saved art I liked, references and all that other stuff. Got a couple of good books lying around, still, but so far most of my data is gone.

How do you deal with having shit memory? I just can't remember things anymore.
I keep trying to recall certain things and I just can't; like if I look away from a reference or pose I almost instantly forget it, or constantly forgetting anatomical bits (their shape and name) when I thought I had it memorized.

That, amongst other cognitive issues... Pic shows a relateable train of thought.

Not talking about visualizing btw, I'm actually decent at that.

>> No.4315084

You're not studying effectively.
Some people can memorize visuals easily with little effort, but it's not usually helpful on its own for drawing at different angles/situations and etc.

You shouldn't be trying to look at references to memorise how they look. Analyze the actual structure itself so you're able to draw it from imagination (A term I'm not a fan of, because it's more like building from imagination).

For example, I'll start with something extremely simple. If you analyze a brick wall, it's very clearly made of stacked rectangles, with a thick outline between them. A row of equal length rectangles begins at the bottom. The next row, though, is offset by exactly half a brick length so each vertical line matches up with the middle of surrounding row's bricks. This goes on for the rest of the wall, so at this point you can accurately re-build a wall in your mind. It's basically construction, but applied to your memory instead of just drawing.

If you want to memorize something more complex like anatomy, I'd suggest starting at a part of the body with less to remember and work your way across the rest. The neck is a relatively easy place to start, so you can move down to shoulder/collarbones to chest/torso and so on. Personally, I don't find remembering muscle/bone names too important, but it is a valid memorization tool for some people. I think after a while of drawing something specific you'll start to learn the names. If not and you still want to learn them, you can just draw your own diagrams so it's easier to remember than looking at foreign ones.

That being said, if you actually have severe cognitive issues, memory exercises might be more helpful than this.

TLDR: use construction on your memory.

>> No.4315465

The best way that I've found for memorizing any kind of information indefenetly is to studio every day for a week the same concept. Repass every morning and every night for a whole week the certains ideas that you want to remember, for example the incertions and names of the muscles. The important thing is to be very consistent. I also have shit memory, I can't remember what the fuck I did yesterday, but in this way I have memorized whole paragrafs of books without too much problem and toons of other things for university. you just have to be consistent.

Your understanding of design theory I'd assume. Y'know, the symbolsim of general shapes in the clothing and body type, color theory etc etc.
Most important I think is a distinct shilouette and face. People always look at those first, and they'll do the same with fictional characters. If you have for example that cowboy character there in your pic, the next cowboy could always wear dark shirts and a differently shaped hat, maybe he's bald. Maybe his shoulders are a bit wider but he's a lanky fuck.

>its anime. there is no real life equivalent.
Stop right fucking now. Do not draw until you've dispelled this absolutely retarded idea.
ALL stylization is born from reality. Anime has no basis in reality? Look at "cute" things and understand what makes them cute. Big eyes, round cheeks, small noses, soft pale skin. The main thing that looks anime look bad, or any stylization, is when the artist has a poor understanding of what the style is trying to portray. This applies to everything in art, by the way, so the mindset that "oh this has no basis in reality so I guess I'll just copy" can and will cripple your progress. You NEED to think critically about your and other's art, or you will hit a wall and won't be able to move past it until you start to think critically.
