Motivation - Or not. by AssClownFish Motivation - Or not. by AssClownFish
It's sibling:

I feel like every time I have a good idea the monster that is motivation just decides to take a vacation. I honestly think they're inversely proportional. You don't have an idea, you have motivation. :icongrumpplz:

It's only a rare stroke of luck when I have both. Psh.

New Template Used.


3000 favs in less than 7 hours. All I can say is:

But thank you for the support anyway. I'm sure we all have our motivational meltdowns. I just didn't expect everyone to really...see this so quickly :'D

I feel like this stamp is long overdue. It is straight, to the point, and definitely relatable. I could definitely see other deviants using this stamp since it is easy to follow.

One gripe I do have though is the glitter. I feel it is a little unnecessary. The stamp has enough to stand out on its own without the use of glitter. I feel the color choice is fine, though red would make the stamp stand out more (in a good way).

I gave three stars for originality, since anyone with some knowledge of a photo manipulating program could have made this stamp. However, some merit is awarded for the message itself, and for the fact the stamp was made in the first place.

Keep up the good work, and continue making stamps.
What do you think?

ya I hate that I got a lot of cool things I want to draw just don't always fell like drawing it
also ya specking of odd favs its also a modivashon killer is when some one spend days or weeks or months on something and only get 10 or 20 favs and some one puts 2 secons on a stamp with something clever on it or something and gets 10000 favs
please don't take that the wrong way lots of stamps are like that but like you say what the shit but it is kinda sad

For me, I sometimes have ideas and motivation, but sometimes I have either lots of ideas and no motivation or I have motivation and no ideas. :doh:

So true. I'm trying to digitally colour sketches, draw a commission for a friend and learn how to draw wolves for said commission but I'm not motivated!

I think the "More you do, the more you feel like doing" saying is somewhat bogus.
Vanna1994 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
Motivation honestly isn't my biggest issue when I have an idea. My artistic ability is an issue though -_-
I can't always draw out my idea, then I get mad and give up on doing that one.
Normally I write it down, or do stick figures at least (with notes if there are specific things involved..)

Joan-Kagami Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't relate~
Got ideas? Just write them down then draw it out later. It's more productive that way. How many times have you regretted not jotting your idea down where you can remember it?
Got motivation? Just doodle and something will come out of nowhere. Not doing anything will make you more susceptible to these misses.

The thing you guys lack is "action".
Riku-of-Darkness Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
It's more intricate than that. I write down the initial ideas, but a skeleton plot isn't a whole story. I also need "ideas" on how to word the narrative properly, and that's where things get stuck. ^-^
