We've all been there, haven't we? Staring at that terrifying blank sheet of paper, wondering what to draw next. All creative juices evaporated, our poor artsy souls left in an artistic desert. In those moments, even our trusty drawing tools seem to mock us, daring us to find something, anything, to draw. Unfortunately, we're no strangers to the quest for drawing ideas when the muse has taken an unexpected vacation. It's during these times that we realize the true value of prompts — those little sparks that ignite our imagination, allowing us to create cool drawings that make our friends request custom artwork. Well, that is until they realize there's a price tag attached.
But it's not just artists who suffer from creative block. In fact, anyone can experience it. Writers, musicians, even inventors! Some of the most brilliant minds in history have been plagued by this frustrating phenomenon. Even while writing content for Bored Panda, we sometimes find ourselves desperately hoping for the blank document to spring to life and shower us with a torrent of creative genius. Spoiler alert: it doesn't work like that.
