I have to slow down folks, and start with the basics - what do you look at for inspiration? Motivation? Exposure to techniques and ideas? Typically this is a short conversation, but I wish to broaden the horizons of everyone. This is something you need not be daunted by or shy away from! Everyone starts somewhere, and with some time (and practice) you can have a whole new skill set branch open up to you.
Get up - and explore! Keep a folder of interesting images from online, scraps of text on why it was important, flag something to use later, or go outside and just take interesting photos of things around you. Heck - I have two folders dedicated to interesting textures I've come across as well as various pictures of the sky/clouds/lighting.
Here are a few links and resources that I cycle through on a semi daily basis - be it for interesting new techniques, inspiration, or I need a color scheme.
If you have any sites you head for inspiration or design let everyone know and post it to the thread!
"Drawing on the right side of the brain"
Art Markers (like Copic or Prismacolor)
