Ignite Inspiration and Keep the Creative Flame Burning...
I was working on a sketch for a character concept. I could see and feel the energy of the sketch, pulsing. I was very excited about its creative potential. But then, as I was rendering the final image, the energy of the sketch suddenly staled and dissipated, leaving only a dead, although meticulously rendered, drawing behind.
This experience was repeated often so at some point I had to question my creative process.
In this thread I will be posting my explorations as I look for ways to keep creativity alive throughout my working sessions. Each image I post, has a time-lapsed video associated with it. You can access it by clicking the image, or the link under the image. The focus of those videos is on inspiration and creativity. I hope they will be useful to some in this forum. (Please excuse my terrible accent in the videos. Hopefully it will be getting better as you get used to it)

I would have to say that this is top-notch stuff right here. However, I would like for you to do some full-color stuff when you get the chance.
