Lack of Inspiration by slabe Lack of Inspiration by slabe
__Lack of Inspiration really sux__. I am currently workin on a piece of art work...the only promblem is i have no inspiration for it. I opened it up...and all of a sudden this pic just popped into my head. i knoe it took like 5 secs to make....but i couldnt get it out of my head. my only inspiration was that of a lack of it.

This picture is "simply" inspirational.

in a world of overstimulation, sometimes simplicity screams. okay, so the technique isn't high caliber. but you can take all the technique in the world and still produce tripe. i've found that i'd rather have a clear, succinct concept, than a clutter of cutting-edge style. when i stumbled across this, i thought, hmm... this person not only knows how to express a common, irritating frustration in this business, but is unafraid to share it. A+++ for balls.

I wasnt saying the piece sux....i was saying that lack of inspiration sux.

I think it says a lot in its simplicity.
Even before I read your explaination.

I think your only mistake was to say that it sux. You just doomed it before you could let it have a chance... but I usually ignore comments from the artist like that, so I was able to overlook it.

__Liquisoft...this is directly addressed to you but i want everyone to read this.

My reason for creating this isnt for the "message" its for the "message behing the message". What i am trying to express through this piece is the fact that self-proclaimed "Artists" or "designers" on deviant art and other community websites, simply BRAG about the fact that they finished there artwork in ".004 seconds" and everyone is ooo-ing and ahhh-ing about it. There is too much 'Lack of Inspiration'. By creating this piece i wanted to show deviants that I AM NOT trying to showing off the fact that I have a 'Lack of Inspiration', but rather make light of the fact that the artworld as of late has been very un-original (HOWEVER...AS ALWAYS THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS...AND THERE ARE VERY ORIGINAL PIECES OUT THERE. I'M NOT TRYING TO GROUP THE ENTIRE ARTWORLD TOGETHER.) Basically, what i am trying to say, is that too many people are worried about GETTING work on-line...rather than actually DOING the work. I wanted to express without coming out and saying it. That is what this piece really represents.

Why bother if you're uninspired and don't know what to create?
This goes back to a large discussion some deviants, including myself, had about boredom wallpapers. People make wallpapers and images just because they're bored, then upload them to places like deviantart for no reason.
Why would you show it off if you yourself said it sucks? It is merely sucking up 107kb worth of server space that could be used for an image that somebody actually worked hard on.

If you're lacking inspiration, and don't know what to create, I suggest taking a walk outside or even watching a movie at home. Seriously. Nature is one of the best sources of inspiration. Films are another one of the best sources. Just go and look around at things. You'll come up with ideas in no time.
