    Hey guys, so i'm usually screaming out ideas, though lately, the past couple of weeks, all i've managed to do is remove my face from my face, and do a couple retro vector concepts, i usually do something with depth or meaning, yet i've got nothing, could someone please inspire me, i've gone all over the internet looking for inspiration but nothing has done it for me, help me out.

    please check out what i usually do here at my DA before posting, just so you know what i'm capable of, and what style i create.

    it's the last day of my two week holiday break and i haven't achieved any good art pieces over the holidays. please, INSPIRE ME!

    Sort link out!

    I know how you feel, though I'm working on a bit of typo with a bit of meaning due to something that happened yesterday. Does my head in when I can't think of something.

    Try looking around dA for ideas? Maybe in the vector wallpaper section as thats what you tend to do. You could always do a collaboration with someone!

    thanks, link fixed.

    i'd love do do some typography but whatever typo i've tried has come out very, very badly... and for typography to work it really does need meaning and purpose, something i am lacking at the moment.

    yeah i'll look some more around DA.

    and i'd love to do a collaboration with someone but there isn't really anyone that would, i have one friend who might like to team up for something, but she doesn't make art often, she has great potential but doesn't do much.

    there is this one girl on deviantART, some pretty amazing stuff, i'm a huge fan of her style dumhild. she might be good to do a callaborative piece with, i still don't know.

    still looking for inspiration from everyone else people

    How would you do a collaborate with her though as her stuff is drawings?

    Not saying my stuff is good (a tall) but I have some typography work on my account you might want to look at to get some ideas. Once in a while I have a look at the the most popular typography pieces that week/month and get some ideas. Sometimes I try and find quotes that mean something and just put things together.

    Yeah a lot of the time it does need meaning and purpose, its better for me as creativity is how I express myself and with typography I can just say it without saying it. Yeah that was cool.

    that's the thing, i thought maybe mixing her drawn images into a realistic vector landscape could look cool, but scratch the idea anyway, might get in contact with her if i do deecide on wanting to do a piece with her but i'd rather do something with someone i know or by myself.

    Look for artists that inspire you and try something similar to the work they create, then do it again, but with your own ideas. That's the way to start.

    For artists look through a thread I think Classicfan(Sorry if that isn't your username) has posted, I've just posted a lot of artists I get inspiration from.
