To continue to create you need to be inspired. What gives me inspiration, I admit is some photoshop eye candy. Two sites in particular are photoshopcafe and ImagineFX. Photoshopcafe has not just tutorials but a cool gallery section with pieces done entirely 100% photoshop. (no scans or photographs, illustrator). Yet ImagineFX’s homepage is great because they feature members latest work and have a image of the day. Just visiting their site, I know I can pick up some inspiration.
I also need good music to create and two internet stations that I listen to are last.fm and pandora. Pandora is part of a music genome project – well that’s what they state. You can create your own radio station of music you like. The program that pandora uses randomly picks more music within the same genre. You can give each song they pick a thumbs up or down. Very cool. Last.fm is also very cool they also recommend songs on your music choices. They just recently added personalized visual radio, I have to spend some time on that. Hmm and with iTunes adding the genius feature seems to be a theme here. I wish I had some literature to list to inspire me hmm no.
