It's normal for a beginner and even pros will go to references to get a specific pose or object just right. If it's something you're really worried about, then a good excercise is looking at a ref image, hiding it and drawing it from your head, then looking back at it when you're done and seeing what went wrong, what went right, and what went better than the original image. Watching atheletes or even people on their daily routine move around and observing how they move and the nuances of their poses helps a lot too, and that combined with a basic anatomy knowlege, and lots of practice, will eventually give you a in-depth enough understanding of the body to start drawing most poses with no references at all. In the end, the most important thing is flow and readability. As long as a normie can see a dude riding a bike and it looks loose and natural and they can't point out any overt conplaints, that's what matters more than drawing everything perfectly anatomically correct, but stiff.I have a question: is it bad that I need to find reference poses to use for my Art because right now Everytime I try to do one from imagination it always looks off.
Is it normal for a beginner to do this or should it be something I should try to I HAVE AUTISM PLEASE LAUGH AT ME myself off of being dependent on reference poses?
