I'm pretty happy with my progress in drawing things that are right in front of me, but I'm having a much harder time drawing things from memory - and it's harder still to draw things that I've made up.
What are your tips for drawing things that don't exist - aliens, weird new machines, mutant plants, characters that live in your head?
All suggestions and resources (websites, books, drawing prompts and exercises) appreciated.
