Just a chip off the ol' block? Razz

I think the best way to karate chop that block is to draw something stupid and inane, something you'd never show anyone else except late at night after a party with a lot of alcohol. It shouldn't be very good nor do you have to complete it. Unless you decide you want to after the hangover wears off, of course.

The point is that we get artist's block because we're trying too hard to come up with something good which blocks the creative juices, so, by deliberately doing something cringe-worthy, we stop trying and hopefully unstop the creative flow.


How about this idea? I give you a real English word, and you scribble out the first thing that pops into your head. Be crass, be crude, be nice, be prude. I don't care. You're not going to show anyone the end results (unless you want to, which I doubt) so get wonky! All you have to do is say you did it so we can try again at a later date. (You're allowed to post your scribbles if you want and can swallow your pride long enough to do so, but it's not a requirement.)

Your real, English word --> breastsummer

Just to show you I will sometimes put my money where my mouth is (ick), I scribbled up the following in about 10-15 minutes, inked it so you could make out the character, did minimal clean-up on my computer, and, in 25-30 minutes could upload it to Photobucket.

Image removed due to problems it caused for other members of the forum. I'm sorry.

(Yes, I do know what it really is, but being accurate isn't the point here. Wink Razz )

Shall I assume this was a stupid idea of mine to try and help break artist's block?


By the way...
breastsummer, n. A large beam extending horizontally over an opening and supporting the weight of the wall above it.

8 not really on Tue Oct 19, 2010 11:14 pm

Not a stupid idea, just the image came at a bad time.

My gf saw the picture and I had to convince her I wasn't looking up porn. so she grounded me. =.=

I been fondling with the ideas in my brainage cavity, but I can't even think of stupid stuff to make.


I guess I can drop all commissions down to a dollar, get ideas from other people.

I see. In that case, I'm sorry. I removed the image so you and anyone else won't run into similar problems. I apologize for any inconvenience I caused although I think your girlfriend is being petty by punishing you for someone else's mistake.




Also, I don't do porn.

Ever.

Please tell your girlfriend that I don't appreciate the insult.

(I know she won't believe me, but her disbelief doesn't change reality.)

Its all fine and dandy.

well I didn't mean that the picture was porn, she thought I was on furaffinity or something horrid like that. Like I was on a porn related website.

No intent that you make offensive material is being implied.

Ah, girlfriends, these jolly lovable knots made of jealousy.

But, as for the topic.

As I currently took a break in making my "Foreign Relations" strip, I announced free commission/request time to keep myself occupied and not fall into any art-block. I just don't want to think about what to draw, it's the main reason, and I don't want to get rusty. So, in my opinion, one of the best way to keep yourself occupied and running is to draw for others. Their ideas, their concepts, your time and skills.

You can check out the deal about commisions of mine at http://pietja8t8.deviantart.com/. You can also make a request if you agree with the rules posted in my DA journal and I'll think about it. I'm currently starting 3'rd commisioned pic, so I can't say I'm grumbling about the lack of work.
If you don't have DA account, you can always send me a P.M. here, if you're interested.

All right, I'm sorry for being grumpy.

I do requests and comissions. ------> http://midniterun.webs.com/ (i sometimes forget I have a website, you can ALWAYS have contact at my DA.)

I just dropped all comissions to a dollar til after Halloween (my prices were too high anyway). Requests are always free.

Requests are general ideas, while Comissions are specific. Like lets takes Nikolai's for an example.

He wanted me to do his character Prototype. That would be a commission. I HAVE to do it. Even if was rated XXX. Money is money.
He also wants me to do a cool full metal alchemist drawing. That is a request because I can do anything with it, or refuse to do it.

Wow. Nikolai is being abused by me. lol. I blamed him for art block, and used him as examples.

Of course I dont do comissions til I'm paid first, because that makes a date from when i need to start and gives me a general finishing date.

Any before Halloween is done before Nov 7th for example. I also keep in heavy contact so it turns out the way you paid for.
