How do you learn to draw like that?

I don't know. I've always been really bad at drawing; then, one day, I feel like I can do almost everything I wanted to. It was like a switch.

Well done! I tried Creatine and Ginkgo Biloba so far, but haven't noticed an improvement of photographic memory or technique. What was your stack at that point or did you identify the responsible compound?

I found that Noopept has a profound effect in the understanding of the figure when I'm drawing. It is weird, because in other areas does not seem to have any noticeable effect.

 

My actual stack is made by Soy lecithin, Pepper, Ginkgo, Rhodiola, KSM-66 and a blend of the extracts of Uncaria Rhynchophylla, Albizia Julibrissin and Ziziphus Jujuba. This stack give me a lot of motivation and keep my mood stable. In adition to Noopept, I think that is the best that you can take for drawing.

Thank you for sharing! I'm curious to try it (at first without Noopept) when my Jiao Gulan (which is a potent adaptogen to ameliorate mood swings and OCD) runs out. Bookmarked this thread and will report you back later.

Hmmm... I've been taking uncaria tormentosa for a while. AFAIK it reduces the receptivity to estrogen by half and improves testosterone to estrogen ratios (and probably dopamine sensitivity as a result), and it does to some extent, or is supposed to improve creativity and fantasy, but do the effects last? Maybe Rhynchophyllia is better than tormentosa somehow? I saw benefits initially, but stopped seeing them soon after... any ideas where the creative spark went or what causes this?

I've tried both and they work pretty different. Rhynchophylla is much better in my experience, but it could be related to the strength of the supplement.

You could add Noopept or Polygala Tenuifolia, they both enhace creativity. Both of them increase NGF and BDNF and Polygala also works as a NMDA antagonist and an ampakine. Noopept seems to downregate trkb, while Tenuifolia seems to upregulate it.

Rhynchophylla is highly angiogenic, I like this, but is not good for everyone. Tenuifolia is antiangiogenic.

Great pic, had a bad experience with noopept. Got really depressed on the smallest dose.

 

Is the tormentosa also angiogenic? I might want to stop taking it...

Is it just normal pencil's your using, or some a bit more special?

Well, I just separate light and dark places. I fill dark places with soft grey and then I just gradually add more intense and concrete traces. With a pencil in the nostrils, mouth, ears... And with a brush in cheeks, forehead and neck. I don't know if is this what you want to know.

A quick self portrait.

Sorry, I didn't notice this question. I don't know, everything I found seem to indicate that Tomentosa is antiangiogenic. Do you have any medical condition that makes you being afraid of angiogenic compounds? Examine claims that Rhynchophylla is higly angiogenic but seems to be antiangiogenic in tumor celules, really weird.

I think that the best thing for creativity is traveling, talking with people, meditating and looking after other artists. If nothing of this works, marijuana could do the trick, also LSD and Mushrooms. This things could fuck you up, they fucked me up, but they sure increase your creativity in ways you would never imagine, and the boost could last years. So, is your call, I guess.

PD: If you work hard everyday of your life, creativity will come. I think that is a skill that you can train.

I dont think nootropics help with skills/IQ unless your deficient already which most arent. youd have better luck with vitamins or meditation etc.

 

 

why do people portray themselves better looking in drawings than they actually are or people they see on purpose?

Wow, must have been pulling an all nighter or something. Uncaria Tomentosa (Cat's Claw) is good for male creativity as it lowers DHT and preserves conventional T. When I was on it, I definitely had more creativity and dreams. It certainly gave me new ideas and creative plasticity, but it came with very youthful emotional sensitivity. In hindsight, I think Cat's Claw would be better for writing or making the story component of comics.

 

I think what you would want to take for technical performance might be different, things that improved hand eye coordination or visual approximation.
