    What super power would you want? (from artist's standpoint)

    If you could have any super power (coming from the standpoint of an artist) what would it be?

    I think time-control would be pretty sweet. Then, whenever I saw something that I wanted to draw, I could just freeze time and whip out a sketchbook and draw it. If there was someone interesting that I wanted to draw, I could go up real close to them and they wouldn't notice. Also, if you wanted reference for something that is hard to get ref for (ie, falling, fire, water, fast motions, etc) you could get it more easily.

    Also, "painting the future" like Isaac Mendez from Heroes would be pretty cool too. Except... I don't know why I would want that power.

    Maybe something like photographic memory or Sharingan, where you could copy stuff would be useful too.

    So, what would your super power be?

    Never having to sleep, always have time to get work done.

    Muscle mimicry, drawing like a pro just by watching a pro draw.

    Super fast perception/muscle movement, working at super speed.

    Super communication skills, being able to let everyone know your ideas in perfect clarity every time.

    Omnipotence is obviously my #1 answer, although I'm assuming you won't accept that one.

    Time control would probably be my #2, for all of the reasons listed above.

    Infinite telekinetic control over matter would be #3. I'm talking Dr. Manhattan-type powers. That would basically give me the ability to sculpt anything on any scale out of anything else.

    Fourth is mind control and fifth is control over the weather. I'm sure those would both be very useful in many situations.

    Having imaginary creatures, models etc appear of any size and character that will pose for you in any wich way. They must be stable and not disturb my mental condition. I would most prolly abuse it.

    Anyone ever read the story of Faustus?
