where do you get your INSPIRATION?
«: May 08, 2009, 06:07:15 PM»
if anyone knows what i am referencing to with the title, you get appreciation!

anyways, i'm sure every artist has a little muse. something that inspires them to draw, whether it be literature, music, or art. so, where do you get yours from?

for me, it's basically anywhere or anyone, but mostly from other art. i don't necessarily have one artist that tickles my fancy. as far as famous artists go, degas and mucha are pretty fine. for more internet-restricted artists, a lot of artists from conceptart (oh god i love filtering through sketchbooks) really appeal to me. then there's deviantart, chock full of delicious artists. a few furcadia artists appeal to me also.

i'm being very vague, so i'll filter through some bookmarks later and post sites.


also, please be anything but vague (like i am)! i'd like links to any artists.

I get my inspiration mainly from anger. Or, at least, my art turns out better when I'm in a highly emotional state, than if I just decide I want to draw.

Other than that, I really don't recognize things that inspire me. I've never heard a song and decided to draw, or saw something and decided to draw. It's just...anger.

from hating myself a lot

every shitty piece I make makes me want to kill myself so I try to get better so I won't hate myself anymore

As far as specific artists I like go, I like cellar-fcp, Takeshi Obata and Ashley Wood (mostly because I worship Kojima and anything remotely associated with his work), though I wouldn't say any of them really "inspire" me

listening to music is what gets me to draw half the time. i never really thought about it, but i like to listen to manchester orchestra a lot when i'm drawing. (inb4 omg dat band suxxxx) or basically anything that's kind of fast paced and will keep me going.


and for artists who inspire me, i really like loish and jinju's art.

edit:
shyyyyyeett, sorry. i forgot to add links.

I find I'm usually inspired most when I am highly caffienated or sugared up, something about those states just get shit movin around in my brain.  Other than that, I can't really say where my ideas come from.  Some kind of weird thought seed that grows until I use it.  Music is definately a catalyst to art-making and sometimes an inspiration too.

Gawd, I get inspired by everything from Hopper to Foo Swee chin. I have a lot of comics/graphic novels, and I'm constantly staring at artwork all over the interwebs when I need a good kick in the ass to inspire myself to suck less.

Portrait artists whose work I've found particularly innovative and inspirational are: Morgan, Alabaster Sea, Indigo Nightfall, Audio Ishida... so many.

Plus, music. Lots of music. I try to listen to music that fits the personality of whomever I'm drawing. =)


Wiggle wiggle wiggle.

I get most of my inspiration from music and sometimes from what happened that day before I sat down to draw. O:
