      I listen to music. I look at Seri's [url=http://serinanth.deviantart.com/]photography. I get a lot of inspiration from roleplaying as well. EverQuest sparked quite an epic story back in the day.

      And, of course, I get most of my inspiration from Ellifayne, my goddess and muse.

      human body, natural forms. stuff like that, the harsher side of humanity. regret, darkness, oppression, pain, you know all that cliché stuff.

      A whole bunch of really awesome {photo}shopped pictures. Monty Python. And my friends.

      Broken relationships, great relationships, nature, people, my problems and desires, other peoples problems and desires, and other music sometimes.

      I like to look through very great artists pictures or go to japanese artist sites and save what I like, then go back to it and copy bits of it. Copying stuff really helps me to draw better orginal work.

      inspiration

      I am not sure if you are familiar with hynogogic images. But if you are they can be an artists dream come true. They are random images when you are totatally relaxed, usually before falling asleep, that apear at random. But not trying to manipulate the images is the key. Some people can lead themselves into a lucid dream this way. I have only done it once.
      But if you get somthing inspirational ,I suggest you snap out of it and write it down. Otherwise you are likley to forget.

      its all in my head... sometimes i feel like my head is just filled with cement or that my head is skull is just an empty chicken egg...
      but some inspiration is from music i listen to...but its mostly in my head...

      (music i listen to:
      Doors, Pink Floyd, Mark Lanegan, Queens of the stone age, Kyuss, Monster Magnet (and loads of other stoner rock), The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Sleep, Desert Sessions, David Bowie, the MOODY BLUES, R.E.M. (early stuff= ecsatic later=almost ecstatic), BOB DYLAN, Bob Marley, Ween, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, the Jimi Hendrix Experience etc etc etc etc basically anything that has actual talent)

      I get my inspiration from four (Main) things: Nature, Violence, People and my dreams. If I draw a picture of what my dream is, not only do I get a cool drawing, but I also reme,ber my dreams a TON better.

      For the last 19 years I have been walking around in my lucid dreams looking for paintings on the dream walls and stopping to memorize the good ones.

      I could say that a few certain things usually influence me -- but also, I never really know where my next inspiration will come from. A news special on TV...something that a professor said...something I heard in class...something I read on the net or in a magazine...

      well recently i had a bigger 'vision' and now i have this.. ''huge''ish, part drawing part painting on my wall... its a door, no, more like a window to my planet of inspiration and i can just jump in and write down something if i want... its so freaking awesome...
      i also found my alter ego there, and lots of new places to draw inspiration from...
      its like this, desert planet... with a dark sky... and my alter ego there.. he has this cool house and a tree by his house..and theres planets on the sky... its just its just, such a big inspiration to me...
      i also hear sounds in my head when i ''go'' there... (sounds being songs and poems)

      I made a piece of work (performance art) after a dream once !
      But for an artist it is not important from where he gets inspiration, because everything can become a work of art, idea, subject or part of a concept - inspiration is abstract, and the source for everyoneare life and spiritual worlds
      this is beyond experience

      I write, mostly stories but occasionally songs. 90% of my inspiration comes from the music I'm listening to.

      my inspiration tends to come from situations, and the emotions that i am feeling at the time...
      also music.
