Thank you to everyone who has submitted their wonderful paintings and ideas to my little contest! The contest is closed now and my dear friend :iconakeyla: and I have had some deep thoughts and already came close to make a close selection! It will be very difficult for me because of all the wonderful entries I already have. But keep the collage with your image included in mind! :D
The winner will be announced in the next two days, so keep your eyes wide open! Thank you so much!

Everyone hast their own source of insiration.
May it be merely by looking out of the window, having a walk in a vast alley or small forest, by listening to music or by seeing artwork of other artists who express themselves through art and even more. Every single of us finds their own little pathway to getting inspired.  

How do you find inspiration?
What inspires you mostly?
Does inspiration for a great idea come to you by looking at a white sheet or thinking of a melody?
Those and more questions is what I would love you to show me here.

I have many sources of inspiration, but I love to watch tutorials, because it actually really helps me a lot to improve my drawing skills. I'm quite happy that I have never run out of ideas yet, but I think looking at amazing picture of other people also helps me a lot to have many ideas.
I really love this wonderful theme of this amazing contest, thanks a lot!

Well, I did one.
Now I will try to explain what it means (<-most difficult part T.T). Anyway
My inspiration comes mainly from nature, I think it's really interesting and it was why I started drawing when I was...(can't remember but I was really young, three maybe?). I also get inspired by books, tales, stories, emotions, history, legends (I really love them!), music (sometimes, but not often) and, of course, other people works (when I see other people drawing it nearly always makes me want to draw too).
And...that's it I think, I tried to put those elements in the picture keeping it simple, hope I didn't fail.
About muro...I think it's the first time I try to do something there OTL
