Why do my drawings look weird?

When you flip your painting, it seems strange since your brain becomes accustomed to the flaws you make in a drawing. It also becomes used to the drawing errors you make on a frequent basis. Flipping your artwork brings these errors back to the forefront of your mind. This can be a good thing because it forces you to pay attention to small details that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Why do drawings look bad when flipped?

What Motivates Artists to Flip Their Drawings? Artists flip their paintings because it allows them to see their flaws more clearly. They may examine their drawings from a different perspective and spot any errors in the artwork, which they can quickly remedy after turning the canvas back over. It's a frequent technique used by (digital) artists. The image on digital media is two-dimensional, so naturally it can be displayed in many different ways. To create a three-dimensional effect, most artists will rotate their images by 90 degrees or flip them.

Flipping drawings or paintings is an easy way for artists to view their work from a new angle. It can also reveal flaws in the art that would otherwise be hidden. For example, an artist might notice a shadow under a particular branch when standing in front of their painting, but wouldn't be able to see it if it were not for the fact that the branch is facing away from them. By flipping the picture, they are now able to see the problem easily enough without having to repaint the area in question. This is just one example of how flipping drawings or paintings can help artists improve their work.

There are several different reasons why drawings look bad when flipped.

Why do my drawings look better upside down?

When you concentrate on an image for hours, your brain grows accustomed to looking at it, so when you flip it upside down, it's no longer as easily recognized. This is why your paintings appear to look better upside down after transitioning from what you were creating to an image you were unfamiliar with. The human brain will sometimes make assumptions based on past experiences and use that information to interpret new data.

This also explains why drawing right-side up looks so much different than drawing upside down. When you draw right-side up, your perspective is distorted by how you see the world; but when you draw upside down, all of that goes out the window and you are only focusing on what is directly in front of you.

This phenomenon has been used to create some amazing artwork over the years. Here are just a few examples: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Andy Warhol all used this technique to enhance the realism of their paintings.

Why do my drawings look childish?

Your left brain is wreaking havoc on your drawing. Others were young adults who had not progressed beyond cartoonish, highly exaggerated drawings. This is frequently a front for dissatisfaction at not being able to capture what is actually in front of us. The more your right brain is engaged, the more realistic your drawing will be.

Realistic drawings use fine details that you can barely see. The image below was done with watercolors on paper. You can tell it's a real scene because I knew where everything was located even before I started painting and many of the objects have names that I gave them while I was working on the painting.

The more knowledge you have about your subject, the better you can paint it. So take time to learn about animals and plants around you and their meanings. That way, when you see something beautiful, you'll know why and how to paint it.

And don't be afraid to experiment with different techniques! If one method doesn't work, try another. As long as you are aware of which part of the picture is causing you trouble and why, you will be able to fix it.

Why can’t I draw the same thing twice?

Drawing requires the use of the right side of the brain. This is the creative half of the brain, and you are using the more logical side of your brain. When sketching the same thing repeatedly, you must aid the transition from the right to the left side of your brain. This can be done by changing up your subject matter or using different approaches. For example, if you were to keep drawing a house every time you drew a tree, you would get very tired of trees! Change things up!

The more you practice something, the easier it becomes. With sketching, this means you will start seeing ideas pop into your head that you didn't before, which is how new things come about. As long as you don't put too much pressure on yourself, this will help you develop as an artist.
