Wow. I don't know if it cured my art block, but it was very fun to do! I just feel very energic, I want to draw, and I like my drawing (that's a new feeling) and ho!  nevermind what I said, I am pretty sure it worked  :)
Thanks a lot!

I've been having artist block for personal art for nearly 3 years, practically all undergrad. Can always do school assignments, but once I wanted to do something for me, I just couldn't do it. Tried a lot of things but this is something I haven't seen before so I'm going to definitely going to give this a try! Thanks for the tip--hopefully this will work (I need to buff up my portfolio for grad school at the start of the year!!)

I had something like that at school as well. I wouldn't really call it "art block" though. I had plenty of ideas and motivation, it's just that I didn't have any drawing "energy" left in me because school sapped it all. I don't really know how else to phrase it, hope that makes sense :lol:. Unfortunately, there were only two cures for me: 1. not having homework so I could recharge, or 2. having a huge test/project due the next day :lol:.

Makes perfect sense! Energy sap, that sounds like what I'm going through, haha! I have a painting commission that I haven't been able to get in to. I had to force myself to sketch on the canvas and it's stopped there. Good thing it's just for a friend so they're not up in arms about it! I've graduated and it was a very stressful senior year so maybe that's why I just haven't done much. Hopefully things will change soon! :)

I hear ya, my senior year was horribly busy, especially at the end :dead:. It takes a little while, but the drawing energy does come back when you're out of school =p. Mine took like a month before I could get settled and recharged from all the stress of finals and graduation.

OMG, I did excatly this when I was like 7 years old on on my dad's computer. It turned out to be a really nice looking pokemon-like creature with hair. (Pokemon wasn't even invented at that point.) I was SO PROUD!

...And then my dad said he had little space left on the compey, and he deleted anything he didn't find useful - including my first ever digital drawing.

But thank you for reminding me that stuff like that still works. I'll try it again!
