Tutorial: Art Block by ToySkunk Tutorial: Art Block by ToySkunk
This must be the most useful tutorial I have submitted yet.
Results guaranteed.

Hard to pick a category for this considering its... ah... somewhat parodic nature! It was my response to the fact that I've loafed around being unproductive for the past month and a half.
I hope it provides some amusement. =P

I forgot to say that it was suggested by the lovely ~Eeyore4444 (the queen of art block, or rather, the queen of not posting anything in her gallery. Ever) - I'm sorry hun!

Edit: I can't believe it. I think that writing this may well have cured my art block. That's it, guys! The solution is to take the mickey! :giggle:

LOL, ripping sketches I try to complete is practically anger management for me.

"Try to take as many requests or commissions as possible. The more you take, the greater the pressure, and the greater sense of despair you will feel upon picking up a pencil."
I feel this part. I feel it so damn hard. Mostly on Tumblr, and I have no idea how to limit the amount of requests to take other than turning off the ask box. :(

I love this because it's witty, but also because people - well, at least I - can avoid Art Block by doing the opposite of what you've suggested. :3 That's why I love this humour!
Brilliant!

Came across this searching for any way of helping my art block... welp.  Horrible depression has gotten me stuck in this cycle, except with the first step of the second part being "ask for suggestions and have your friends outright ignore you, or ignore you and change the topic to focus on themselves".  I've asked for help in half a dozen different places, and directly asked half a dozen friends... NOTHING.  Which only makes the depression part worse. :/

mmmmmkayy....no ofence to you or whomever reads this but, art block doesn't exist.
it is simply being lazy. it annoys me because people should realise how easy it is to draw or think
of what to draw. there are NO proffesional artist that experience art block.
