:iconbreakingthecircle: I would really like to get this group noticed. I have noticed more and more things on DA related to issues presented in this group. I believe this group could become a valuable tool for this site's members.

Honestly, I never run outta ideas. I'm just too caught up in anime and videogames to sit down and put them all on paper. Lol. I do, however, leave several notes and recordings behind so that I don't' forget the ideas I come up with.

I've been having issues with Deviant Art for over a week now. 

Specially with - I can't upload any images to it unless I send them there via the email. Everytime I try to upload something, I get an Unknown Error that occurs and it just never works. I've tried using both Chrome and Firefox and it's still occurring. 

There's been a lot of lag and slow loading times as well and I know it's not my internet as I'm wired in using T1 or better (don't know specifics off hand but I know it doesn't suck in the slightest lol). I don't know if it was the recent update that started this or what :/ really needs to be looked at though...

I feel uninspired when I don't have a deadline.
Gimme a deadline - I'll damn well think of something.

Creativity blocks make me feel inadequate and not so creative.  ITS NOT FUN!

Oh yeah that one. When I get a creativity block it is usually after I feel tired for any reason.  Some days I can come out of it and create something original or close to original Some days are much harder than others to think of fresh ideas.   It gets extemely frustrating on days when I find that every good idea I have well seems good to myself has already been thought of.  Those are the days when it is next to impossible to get unstuck.  But on the easy days when I have a block.  Randomly sketching images on paper or on my tablet helps give me a head start.  Listening to music before I create inspires and energizes me.  And I don't mean listening to the radio or music that first comes to mind or the top 40 countdown.   When I want to get ideas I listen to movie and animated film soundtracks.   If I want to create something both sci-Fi and full of action, I pop in Transformers the movie 1986 music score, instrumental score only.  If I want something more in the early twentieth century with a touch of film noir.  I listen to the music score to Batman (1989). If I want to make something epic or battle themed I listen to fantasy videogame soundtracks and sometimes music from Call of duty.  If I want to create something horrific, terrorfiying or apopltilyptic I listen to "Requim For A Dream." But doesn't always work.  Sometimes I get insperation from events that happen to me directly in my own life.   It's about time we get a discussion topic like this one.  Nice job.   All artist can relate to this topic.

.......I dunno. When lacking inspiration I take a break and look at nature around me. I can't force myself to think because the painting/story will be choppy or lack emotion instead of natural.
