Drawing the Subconscious!
I have this image, or characters in the back of my mind. It's hard to explain, but they have a style onto themselves that is very specific. I like to work with the subconscious but I have never been so challenged by dream like images before.
I want to be able to draw and paint these characters along with other dream like imagery. But when I close my eyes to focus on the images in my minds eye, I lose them, they disappear. But if I pay no attention to these dream like images, they disappear too. I can recall the image or characters at will, but I can only half see it.
It's a bit hard to explain, I can recall the image in the same way you might be able to recall a dream. Its fuzzy and not like it was when you were dreaming.
I can't however imagine the image or create along the way as I go. I've tried to draw it but every time I look at the picture its lacking and never captures the essence of the dream-like characters in my minds eye.
I must be crazy!
What can I do to get these characters out? How do you draw subconscious imagery when the image is fuzzy?
