    Unhappy Loosing the passion for Art..please help

    When I started my new college I was very excited and had a burning ambition to become a concept artist. I do still have this passion but it seems to be fading. The tasks at hand are becoming mundane and dull. I need something to liven me up again. I know in my heart that drawing is my true passion and joy....Is there anyway I can boost my mind up again?

    Hey, I hear what you are saying. I had wanted to go into concept art myself, then I kinda lost interest, and realized it wasn't what I wanted to do. Maybe I'll go into it eventually. But, I'm the type of person who needs constant new input, and focusing on anything too long bores me.

    So here's a couple of suggestions:

    a) Take some time and focus on other possibilities in the art field, such as matte-painting, portraiture, 3d sculpture, music, whatever. Then go back to doing some concept art. If you still like concept art, having these extra influences will make your work stronger.

    b) Get together with a group of friends who are also into Concept Art, every week, and just share ideas and your work. They can remind you why you are interested in concept art, and give you a fresh perspective, (and vice versa). And of course, just check out work on Concept Work as often as you can. I haven't seen your work, but there is always room for improvement. A constant hunger for self-improvement is a great motivator.

    Hope this helps.
