Hello! How do you get through art block? I have no idea what to draw but I really want to.
tklastasis tklastasis Said:

Hullo there!

Uuuum, Well, here are some ways that I get through art block:

  • Just doodle:  If something comes from this that you want to bring to completion, awesome!  It’s good practice and you never know what you may come up with
  • Look at some of your favorite artists work, and/or some inspiring work that speaks to you.  Some of my favorite artists’ works always give me inspiration and make me go “OH I want to do that/something similar but of my own making!”
  • Try out different techniques: Sometimes drawing with just a pen, or doodling something that you’re not used to doing (landscapes, creatures, things from life), or even drawing in a different way (using spot blacks, doing nothing but hatching, stippling, or using only 3 colors) could help to give you ideas of what to draw next
  • Reading:  I’m an avid reader, especially of sci-fi and fantasy literature, so sometimes I give my brain & hands a break, and turn to books for possible inspiration.  Maybe a scene or character from a book can turn ideas into something I can use.

So yeah!  Those are some things that I do, that I can think of off the top of my head!

The most helpful ones to me though are the first 2, looking at art that inspires you and doodling, no matter what.  Even if you don’t like what you’re producing, keep at it and work through the art-block!

I hope this helped, lol

GAME. CHANGER.

SEOUL — Korean animation firm, Studio Mir has forged a 4-year contract with DreamWorks Animation spanning four animated TV series.

I really like his uniform~


I was looking for fonts recently and fell in love with many, so I figured I’d compile all my favorites. Some of them require a tweet or Facebook post to download. All credit goes to their respective makers.
