I believe this looking around tips and getting involved in groups are very useful, maybe the most useful ones.
And of course "learning" to comment on the work of others, I always find myself lacking in words
I mention these things because I am curious to know how others with health difficulties get round these issues?
For the record: I don't drive, I am looking for alternative family accommodation and public transport doesn't take you into the depths of the countryside anymore
My sovereign remedy for artists block is to stick music on as loud as possible, grab some paper and a pen, doodle and let the music do its magic
I love your response here though "My sovereign remedy for artists block is to stick music on as loud as possible, grab some paper and a pen, doodle and let the music do its magic "
And by the way: Thank you so much for featuring the latest one of my Arthur-fanarts! Aww... This is too kind and I really appreciate it. I feel motivated!
It's more the writing of fanfictions these days what captures me, not drawing. But I think it's about time to return to my very roots. I've ALWAYS done art in some way. Every time I took up the pencil it feels like coming home. So I think it's only a matter of time. I'll draw again. Wish I'd have more time for this though. The job... But like I said: I feel motivated. And thankful for your words!
alot of really good work shown here..
i dont really get artists block.. for me its more i just sometimes get unmotivated to sit down and create..
once i sit something always comes out..
Literally, the only thing I do to overcome it is just to draw. I know this sounds so weird because the effect of Artist's Block is to not be able to think of anything to draw or not be able to apply your ideas on the paper but this is where my solution comes in.
Imagine you have Artist's Block and you have a sheet of paper on your desk. You have a pencil in your hand and you have no idea what to draw. Just draw anything. A line, a circle, a word. Anything.
When you have that basis for your drawing, [ideally] the ideas of what to add/draw next should be coming in one by one. Maybe an hour later you could having that looks really amazing. Maybe even one of your best works. ;D
I don't have artist's block anymore. I write down all my ideas so that I always have something to draw. Also, I notice that creativity is something you have to 'work out' like you do - or should do - with your body, the more you create the more creative you become. I had a hard time finding ideas but now they seem to come to me.
My major problem now is lack of motivation - that doesn't count as artist's block, does it? -, I keep procrastinating doing art, I always think that all I have to do is just 'do it' anyway, but I don't know, that have been so hard x.x
thank,s to all for your presence and your encouragement to all novice and fractal beginneres
Mmm... I do one of two things. I either go for a walk, (Or pace around the house XD) or I listen to music.
Walking is something I do a lot whenever I'm thinking, so I'm usually pacing up and down the hallway whenever I'm writing something. Sometimes, I go outside, because I annoy my brothers with all my pacing. >w<
And I listen to music. Not only just the music on my iPod, but I go around the internet to find different songs that I've never heard of before. Music helps me in weird ways, it can inspire me to draw, or inspire me to write. Sometimes music inspires me to make a new OC. (Which I still have a billion to make. >.<)
Oh, and another thing. I find doodling random things to be extremely helpful, and fun! Randomly drawing about things you like can definitely help you, or just make you laugh and enjoy yourself. ^^
