Find out what you really really love or things you think are beautiful or cool. Like things in real life. Just look for things you normally would ignore. When you get a bit of inspiration foster it and channel it to your art. Also breaking up your daily routine and just doing something different! Exercise really helps me to feel inspired.
I love dragons, want to travel, and meet new people. So, should I notice things like lizards, places in my hometown I take for granted, and people I see from time and time again? Like right now, I'm doing a work of romantic couples with characters from a show, but I'm giving them a more refined look, and letting them gaze into their eyes on a sofa. I was inspired only due to seeing couples and the way they are with each other. Am I on the right track?
Sure! That sounds like a good track! Just follow whatever catches your eye. You see something cool catalogue it for later. And just keep it fresh. Listen to new music, watch new movies, wear new clothes idk. New stuff just inspires me and breaks me out of a creative slump. Also try new types of art.
bring a art book with you everywhere and always draw when you are bored. This works for me. Listen to music as you draw and try painting feelings xD i know that sounds weird but music is very inspirational. My art teacher would sometimes let us choose music and let us do work as we listened : )
Yes, I use a sketch pad. I'm a traditional artist who uses paper, pencils, colored pencils and ink pens. I've just been trying to find ways on how I can be more creative, making works that come from me like a character of my own creation or a new location. Just something I can say I made up from scratch.
Don't worry. To each their own, but I guess I need to see how I can bring out that talent to be creative and work from imagination more. Like right now, I create my own stuff roughly 15-35% of the time, but wanna jump that to at least 50%. I love what I do riight now, but I wanna take in what others want to see like my mentor.
