In order to break the cycle, I bought a few inspirational sketch books with suggestions an ideas and they’ve been really helpful. I’ve also been messing around with some coloring books for kids, because sometimes starting from basics can give you that extra boost.
Lastly, I’ve been messing around with different mediums. I used to always draw in graphite and occasionally pen/ink. Then, I transitioned to acrylic for several years, and now I’m coming back to pen and some watercolor. I think its been good to stretch myself to use mediums I’m not as proficient at. That way if its not amazing, its ok, because its not your go to style anyways. Sometimes just thinking outside the box can inspire you to do something you didn’t know you had in you.
