I never knew how sad not being able to draw can make you.

I feel like I just... Have nothing to do today. At all. Apart from waste time, or do homework I don't want to think about because it only makes me feel worse.

Nothing productive, just blankly staring at the screen or daydreaming or wishing to get something down and draw but I can't... Christ

What am I supposed to do for the rest of the day? All I want to do is animate, and even then I can't even figure out what I want to animate, what I want to do once I've got the tablet cable back.

It's just... depressing. It feels like I'm forcing art block on myself. Not only am I unable to draw since my tablet's not working, but the only thing I could be doing right now, figuring out what to draw, I can't do.

I don't want this. I need to do something. I don't know.

This was gonna be a poll originally but, as you can guess, I've been making far far too many of those as of late. Sorry about this guys, felt the need to get something out whilst I wait, wasting my weekend away. It's stupid too, the only thing I can do right now is homework, the one thing I'm trying to break from right now. Fuck me. I've gotta draw and post something, I don't care, even if I use my old over-sensetive tablet I'm not used to any more, or make the shoddiest traditional comic strip known to man, I've gotta make something. I'm getting a headache from all this...

I had a wave of really bad depression when I hurt a nerve in my arm, it caused extreme pain when doing things like drawing or writing!
So I know what you are saying about not being able to do art and how hard it can be.

Try doing some traditional sketches when you do get ideas so then you have the ideas on paper

I've got art block right now and it sucks. So I know how you feel. I'm so sorry you have it. It's like a horrible disease with no cure. I hope you get to feeling better and don't have to do the hell called homework.

Draw something on paper, something you may not usually think of drawing :3
That, or make something up as you go along, start with a circle for the head and freestyle onwards to make something.

I usually do the latter, it helps me a bit.

Same, I was unable to draw this weekend because I was at my grandmas- picked up from school and I'm not going to bring my friggin $1000++++ cintiq to school with me. //sighs
maybe college I would bring it but not high school. I don't trust the people there enough. Even if it's in my locker. :0

So I've been doing pretty much the same thing as you, furiously trying to figure something out to do that doesn't involve digital art. It sucks man. <:(

With your tablet that works try drawing a mash of your OCS on one document .or random things then colour them . that's what I would do, and I would put my homework in the darkest corner in my room covered by stuffed animals never to be seen again .... That's why I always get detentions because I don't do it or froget .

I could try but I don't know if it'll work with my UK 3DS ;^; I can't find anything flipnote-related in the eShop

ok, go in your 3ds 
settings>other>location/residence
now change it to any place on the usa (you can change it later)
now go to club.nintendo.com (make sure is the american one)
make an account, checkyour to-do list and you'll see the code of flipnote

Ghh, doesn't look like there's an option for any American states on the UK 3DS TTATT or even just 'USA'. A whole array of other countries but not America
