Ever have one of those days... - One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?

Ever have one of those days...
I'm having one. I need to be inspired. I need to stop worrying about things I can't control and wondering if I'm always the one at fault. I need to stop shouldering responsibilty for things I have no control over. I need to move on and chalk it up to yet another learning experience.

Not always so easy.

I have 200 icons to make--40 of which need to be posted in the next few days. Yet I can't find the inspiration to make them. Every time I start, I feel like what I do is complete and utter shit and so I trash them and start again, only to repeat the process all over again. It's just hard to be creative when something is making you heartsick.

So--if any of you out there give a shit--inspire me. Write me something or give me a picture or hell--ANYTHING that will spark something within me--something creative.

Just basically feeling useless, worthless and cretively stunted.

And I miss the past.

EDIT: And yes maubast I took my meds. *sticks out tongue*

*hugs you carefully*

I am sorry you are feeling that way, sweetheart. I do not know if I could inspire you or not. But I offer you my support and understanding.

I know that feeling, it sucks! I still have to make over 70 Legolas icons in the next two weeks and I don't really have inspiration myself :(

Where do you have to make those icons from? Perhaps I can inspire you with pics or something else!
And if anyone want to inspire me for Leggy icons, that would be more then welcome!

icons100 I knew it was a real challenge when I signed up because I feel like I can't make any Orlando icons because I just can't do him justice. But I'd been doing so well with making icons. Now, I just feel like I can't seem to accomplish anything.

So for you, here's something I did for a good friend a couple of years ago (800x600).

Legolas

That's a great one! I haven't made icons from that scene yet, so hopefully that will get me into the right mood :)

I'm never ever going to make a 100 claim after this. It's insane! Especially for people like me who just can't make even two icons with the same style. I somehow need to have every icon to have a different look *sigh and kicks myself*

And your icons are great hon! Would it help you to look at my newest? I often get inspiration just from looking at others icons.

I'm trying to get the idea out of my mind that an icon needs text and I think for the most part it works. When I do end up putting text on an icon it's good, but I like the feeling of the icon being complete without having to add text because that's always been the hardest part for me.

And be glad you don't have Leggy to make icons from, I still don't know how I'm making a "kiss"-themed icon :/

Hey! That's me.

And I miss the past.

I wish I could have my memories wiped. I wish I could forget everything but for you.

I took my meds. *sticks out tongue*

Good because I'd hate to have to thump you. ;)

if any of you out there give a shit--inspire me. Write me something

I give a shit. And I'll try.

Yep. Don't we all? Honesty, and being blunt has it's advantages. You might try it sometime. It can be quite "uplifting".
