    How do you get that creative juice flowing?

    Hey guys, I'm really impressed by all this art everywhere.
    I've wanted to become a concept artist for a few years now but lately my brain has been in a mind stop.
    The lack of creative creations has led me to not wanting to draw much anymore.
    The times I do draw I don't bother spending more than an hour or two on it mainly just blocking in shapes.

    How do you get that creative brainjuice flowing through your limbs?
    I still want to work as a concept artist/illustrator but i feel so far behind and the more time that passes the further back I go which brings my lust for art down even more.. Its a circle of death!

    It's not a race. Relax.

    his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he
    has imagined, he will meet with a success
    unexpected in common hours."

    done all of the above and read the inspiration threads.
    I just dont get any "ooh I want to continue" but more of a "I suck why bother".
    And Its not that I'm depressed I just dont feel like I gain anything from what I do. =(

    I wouldn't worry to much about "creative juices" (orange juice is pretty good stuff too ya know)

    but seriousley, I think that it is safe to say that being at a creative "moment" is nice, but waiting around for it is going to kill you as an artist.

    And Its not that I'm depressed I just dont feel like I gain anything from what I do. =(
    sometimes, the most importent steps that we take are the ones that we don't even know wer are takeing. Just draw YOU WILL GET BETTER!

    And here is a hint, those times were you are tierd, stressed, or just want to find a place to hide, feel like doing ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING because you are just so warn out,

    tose are your prime times to draw.
