The Inspirational Splash Board Thread
« on: January 08, 2016, 04:31:12 am »
Hey all,

I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets very inspired by other art forms.  On my computer I have a big folder of inspirational pictures, gifs, and just any other kind of art that inspires me.  I like seeing some of my favorite artists retweet artwork on twitter that inspires them, and I'd love to see what else inspires you guys!

I'll start with some art that recently inspired my music:

Knew I wasnt alone! I usually start off my day by browsing deviantart and saving the pictures I like, and end up using it as a theme for my next track.

I've been using a lot of cool pics I find to sort of help assist with whatever mood I'm trying to convey while I'm writing, I usually just have some pics open in other windows so I can switch back and forth between fl studio and a e s t h e t i c. Something else I like to do is go outside and find new scenic places, especially during sunsets, it's kind of surprising how helpful that is.

Also, I just got back into video games, those have been really inspiring. Specifically Undertale (for really emotional melodies), and if I ever want to make a song that makes me feel nostalgic, I usually play Sonic Adventure.

Since the file size limit is kind of small, here's an imgur album of inspo pics: http://imgur.com/a/r4SzG
