Where do you steal your builds from? (Sources of inspiration)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fb4dc594190> #<Tag:0x00007fb4dc5940c8>

I recently stumbled across something known as the Imaginary Network on Reddit and what I found was so amazing I thought I’d share and I hope others might share some of their sources of creativity here for others to use.

Prior to finding the Imaginary Network I would spend hours on google, pinterest, youtube, deviantart, etc looking for something to inspire my otherwise unimaginative mind. This has made that searching easy.

Here are some of my favourite categories:

My main Reddit’s are aww and eyebleach

I have no idea what those even are… I’d heard of Reddit, but up until a few days ago I had never used Reddit… :nerd_face:

This is the type of thing that gives me millions of ideas.

I usually google a lot of images and then.build something based on whatever I saw.

Some times I just copy what I found like the buildings I showed a while back.

Aww is basically the same thing

They’re like an antidote to the internet/reddit

Gee thanks DK, now all my inspiration and motivation is going to waste while I spend the remainder of the day sitting here scrolling through adorable animal pictures.

That is indeed an excellent Reddit thank you DK!

OK I stopped when this appeared before me. Nothing can top this, I wish I was this creature.

Hard to believe the adorable creatures in those pictures likely spend their evenings casually plotting ways to murder their owners if the food ever runs out :rofl:

I tend to float around Google images and wherever that leads me if I’m looking for ideas, there are so many artists out there who have such a great imagination. Myself I’m not that creative lol and I can’t draw for sh##.

Yes I do love artstation!

I do ask permission. Especially if I am going to try and really recreate something. I have too much respect for these people. I wish I had that much talent :slight_smile:

Agreed! The work they do is amazing and that really is commendable of you to go so far as to contact them. Fortunately any attempt I made to recreate something like this:

Would probably more closely resemble a toaster by the time I was butchering it. haha
