Where do you find your motivation to do art (you know, besides paying the bills)? I graduated in June and I haven't been motivated to do my own stuff at all, all I've done is pin stuff and like things. I want to do band/film/posters/comics/prints but I just don't feel like it even though its what I want for my life.

I graduated back in December, so I’m getting close to hitting a year since I finished school.

Motivation or what I like to call "Getting Shit Done" is a skill…just like drawing. You have to practice. I’m naturally Intrinsicly Motivationed to draw but there are still days I don’t want to. But it has to get done.

I write out a list everyday of what I want to accomplish, the list includes how many pages I want to draw, emails, and stuff that needs to get done around the house. By making a list I know exactly what needs to get done and I don’t feel overwhelmed. I break large projects into smaller more manageable chunks. But I always set deadlines! and hold myself accountable to them.

Money isn’t the key to Motivation, I’ve been payed to work on projects that I had NO to desire to draw. But you just have to keep on trucking and get it done. When you’re done with that project, you’re going to have so much energy to complete your own work.

I’m so used to drawing every day, it’s just a part of my life. When I don’t have something to work on I feel a little lost. So I’m always working on new ideas.

Hope this helps! But everyone is different, so you have to find what works for you. For me I can only draw at home at my desk with my list of work that needs to be completed.

One of the hardest things to deal with in miniature, tabletop and wargaming is losing inspiration or motivation to paint and game. All of us who do this hobby have experienced it on more than one occasion and the first thing we ask is how do you overcome it.

During the time that I have been…

More open blister! Saga Warlords. The mounted warlord has been rebased on a GW horse as the one included is closer to a pony. Below that are some Fenryll Dwarven Heroes!
