I like to take a drive or walk and look at architecture or nature to help with inspiration!

Take a break and then start over with a new concept (or dramatically change what I already have going) :P

I like to ride my bike, go watch movie trailers, or just do something away from a screen!

Pew Pew! Gaming always works for me, always seens the best way to keep the mind distracted for a few hours!

I normally make lots of notes and also do something like a story board so when i get to actually create the file, model or so on i have something to go by. You can always add or subtract from it but it is really useful.

If that does not work i go to sleep cause by that time i know i am lacking sleep.

Cheers

I usually just step away from the keyboard, take a walk, play some video games, something that will completely get your mind off of what you’re trying to do. You’re brain will then just process and think about everything subconsciously and maybe you’ll get rid of your block. But make sure you have a notebook with you or something to write with where you’re at.

One of the most important things when doing creative work, designing, developing, and whatnot, is that we come up with most of our ideas when we’re not working on the project at hand, and half of the ideas that we get we forget. This will help you get all of your creativity in one place.

Hope it helps!
