The Inspiration Topic

Hello. I have no idea how you do it. In a good way, I am jealous. Some of you can become inspired by relativly nothing and make something amazing. I on the other hand, have apparently a medical lack of inspiration.

Maybe I'm just lazy. I know its not imagination, because once i get somethign it flys around doing everything in my head.

Enough about me. I know you love me, but maybe later, okay? What I really created this topic for is for thse of you like me, and the rest of you. Post particularly amazing and inspiring things. What i mean is, artistic-wise. Post things that would inspire someone to draw/paint/aret-create, something amazing. Who-kn ows, besides +10 Karma for you, maybe the creator will love you long time?

wow, you must need a really steady and to do detail like that ship, its great :D
A steady hand (mine isn't so much anymore) and a good eye (my eyesight is fading too)....sigh But thank you. Some of my best pieces were wolves I did for people that asked for them.....they were both a challange and a lot of fun.
hahaha that rules me out, shaky hands
the wolves one is really good, i can't even draw, let alone do something as difficult as that
Well, if you can sketch, you can learn to do pyrography. Thanks concerning the one wolf I made....I had a few others I'd done that were much better, but sold them before digital camera's were no pictures.
ok, thanks for your help :)

their really impressive works of art! :D

The above comments are all usefull ideas but YOU need the "spark" that lights your fire, external stimuli nurtures your interest but there has to be a connection to give you inspiration. Are there things around you that you have done and are pleased with or proud of, no matter how small? Are there things you wish you could have done better? Make an Instructable, following the checklist, and show how you did it, or show where you went wrong and what you would have done to get it right.
I believe that once you start "something' It will lead to more creativity. It can be daunting to see how clever some people are but it's often the smaller ideas that appeal to a broader audience. Good Ibleing.
In my case it's not really a spark, I usually see something I would like to improve (in my daily life) and then think about it (use google, to see if something similar exists and make some sketches). It's more a process; I always have the best ideas when I have no time at all to execute them, that’s why I write them down. The best way to get ideas (or to solve problems) in my case is sleeping, apparently I’m extremely good in coming up with ideas while I’m sleeping (I can think about something the whole day, but find the solution in my sleep). The hint I would give to you, that always worked for me is: relax! You can’t force ideas, go through life with open eyes and you will see inspiration everywhere.
"....that's why I write them down...." I have a very useful device, a small personal digital recorder, I picked up on sale that I keep with me at all times, so even if I can not "write" I can record ideas.
good idea, i often get my best ideas whenever i can't get my hands on a piece of paper and a pencil, so maybe i should do the same
The one I have is about the size of a cigerette lighter....quite handy really.
