For you fanart and fanfic makers out there, how do you keep yourselves inspired? Watch TNBC for the billionth time? Read/look at others works? Speak to me people.

My inspiration? Hmm...well music really feeds my drawing and writing its kind of hard to explain but some music just brings images into my mind or gives off some kind of spark that makes me want to write or draw. I also take inspriation from life and stuff that happens to or around me. Sometimes its just random and there really isnt any way to explain it.

Are you are Marvel comics fan, Amelia? What's your favorite superhero? Mine are Superman, Batman, and Spiderman.

Death and dreams huh? Dreams I understand, but death? What do you mean by that? Just curious.

i get inspire mostly by other peoples art. i might see an idea and it will spark something in me to draw a pic.

also, music plays a big role in insperation. i like to picture music vids staring the nightmare and corps bride cast.

With me it just comes randomly, usually the characters I come up with are originally real people with different names and appearances.

Events and storylines can come from reality and my own head. Usually the most interesting characters are in fact real people.

Or maybe I'm just a little weird and have too many strange people in my life...

I didn't know that Superman and Batman were created by Marvel Comics...aren't they part of 'The Justice League'?
As for the question of this topic...hmmm my inspirations would be games, personalities, books...especially fantasy books...and some others.

Accually, Superman and Batman are owned by DC Comics. The Justice League consists of DC comic characters. Marvel Comic characters include the Fantastic Four, SpiderMan, The Hulk, Iron Man, Daredevil, Thor, Captain America and the X-Men.

... My dad's a huge comic freak. He has over a THOUSAND in storage. I should know this less I'm no longer his daughter anymore XD

ooh cool your dad likes comics. That's way cool man.
Yeah i thought that Superman and Batman were not Marvel Comics superheroes...I should know coz I watch 'Smallville' and it says 'Based on Characters created by DC comics' at the end of the introduction.

(god ariel, i LOVE your signiture.... the joker RULES...)

anyway, i get my inspiration from dreams. any kind of dream i have that sends me off the nexty day in a daze is what i use as a story. most of the time, i get lucky and end up with a depressing one so i can make my readers cry, but if it's one of those happy ones, i just ignore it... ^_~

Well, It all really started when I created Romega. He's quite a bit like myself. And I started coming here, and RPing. I then started the KH series, I liked the way Donald and Goofy fought, so I use them. My fan-fic starts basically after I came back, KH inspired me, as well as Heart Of Stone.

Whoa. I never realized how there are so many ways one can become inspired.

How many of you are inspired by literary works by famous horror writers? My fav writers are Dean Koontz and Stephen King. Their works are what really fires my creative muse.

yeah, books, movies, you name it. i hate trying it that way though, because then you try to copy the plot... that's something i'm not fond of. i try to be original. LOL!
