Lack of inspiration
hey i am nineteen and an avid anime/manga fan. i have been a dedicated artist for about, hmm let's see, nineteen years. i pencil, ink, and use water colors and markers of various sorts. i have been drawing this comic book, well trying to and it's not going any where due to no insparation...
So i am new and i though this would be a good thing to start out with.
Thanx for any input.
One: it really depends what you like to do.
Two: Most really good stories are derived from the life experience that you gain.
So, unless there is more info on what particular things interest you, all I can give you is what inspires me.
For me, it is usually music. If I listen to different sounding music, my art has a way different theme, style, and position. You could try it and see if it works for you.

Where do you get your ideas from? Well, they can come from anywhere and everywhere, if your stuck and can’t think of something from your everyday life, and you can’t make something up, try rewriting one of your favorite films/comics etc. Change the characters about…make the bad guy win this time…anything you want. Remember there are no limits, apart from the ones you construct.
Take a break ClarkShark. I mean it, just don't think about your comic.
I find that when i'm writing and I get stuck for ideas, taking a break helps. Sometimes I go for a run, somtimes I meditate and sometimes I just go downstairs for a glass of water. Find something that relaxes your mind and concentrate on other things, then you'll see that inspiration finds you, not that you find inspiration.
