    Has it ever occurred that you are sitting idle, doing nothing, and just staring at something and nothing is in your brain or hearing?

    There are moments in life when you sit idle
    All you try to work and scribble
    Your brain is not helping you,
    your heart isn’t flowing blood but not ideas
    your hands want to doodle,
    but you’re not in the mood.

    This block is very common with artists of any field. It can be a poet, author, novelist, sketch artist, or painter. There is a reason why an artist takes time to complete a job. Art has no algorithm or procedure. It all is a work of heart and mind working together. Normally it starts with your hand touching the pencil or brush and the magic happens. At certain moments we don’t know where the piece is going yet it comes out to be amazing. That is what art. It simply starts and you’ll never know when it will end until your heart wants to complete. Every art piece is like an invention of its own.
    I know that ideas don’t appear anywhere, they are a glimpse of the emotions and our hearts. But sometimes a push of inspiration can be helpful to draw.
    We bring you some cool drawing ideas that will make you draw something which might turn out to be something huge or a masterpiece. So No More Blank Pages!

    3. A Getaway
