I posted this at another art forum, but I'd love to hear all of your thoughts on this.
Someone IMed me the other day and asked me "how does someone get creative?" and for some reason the question stunned me. I was about to give him that "go look at things that inspire you" response, but I realized that (at least for me), it doesn't really spark my creativity. it just brings forth a desire to make something similar to whatever just inspired me. Thoughts?
P.S - sorry to make two threads at the same time, but I felt that both were good questions that need to be answered, and are of a very different nature, so they should get different threads.
