Let's first understand what is Art Block.
In simple words, Art block is what you experience when you really want to create art or do something but can't figure out a 'great' way to do it
You can figure out a good way, but you're not looking for that and hence, Art Block.
people do confuse art block with a sudden downgrade in skill or will and it is surely not that.
Consider it the most cliche but effective way.
Now when you are looking for references, you need to make sure you make a moodboard (a place or file where you stack all the references)
Do not visit a site and keep scrolling till you find something. If you do this, it will be a much longer process and a tedious one as well.
Gather at least 10 images or pointers to work with.
Imagine it like your fav sports team but this time you're not playing, you're the coach
It's very common for people to say that artists pick their own style. Yes, it is true but they don't just pick, they also experiment with it and see other styles as well.
Sometimes, you may not be able to do something when your own art style gets in your way.
Always remember, each art style comes with it own pros and cons.
when you're not able to draw a cube, try making it a square.
If there's one thing that you won't find on the internet or any references website is your imagination.
Learn to look at simple objects like a cup or a bowl and imagine what it could be like, if it's size was doubled, it's texture was changed etc.
A bowl could be like a skating park or rink, whatever you call it, if I wanted it to be that way.
Finding shapes and making faces from clouds is one easy and free way to get yourself started with. The
Everytime you want to create something and you can't come up with something, then generate a random name online.
It will take you less than a minute but you'll no longer call it art block, you'll just call it 'xyz' (name generated)
This way, even though you haven't started at all, you do have a name for your project.
And if you think, this wont work then I'll just say
All the big companies first come up with the name

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
