  1. So I have been struggling with painter's 'block' for quite some time now. I know everyone has been there - you really want to paint but sitting at your painting desk you have no motivation/inspiration to get started - so I am wondering what things have worked for people in getting past it. Also has anyone found a 'trigger' that causes it (for themselves of course - I'd imagine there are as may 'triggers' for this as there are people in the hobby!) Myself I think I have actually found a possible trigger that leads me into not wanting to paint anything. When I see posts either here on my facebook feed (Reaper Miniatures is about the only business I allow to post things in my newsfeed) of these beautifully painted and based miniatures I am, at first, in awe of the skill required to get these results - I truly think people who can paint 2" high miniatures so that they look like they may get up and start walking around as some of the finest artists out there and Reaper seems to attract these experts in droves. My next reaction is often the realization that I will never even come close to the results these painters get - my style is to roughshod and I paint solely to bring miniatures to RPG games (or the occasional miniature-focused board game). I just want them to look decent but I find my self demoralized as I see these works of art. So for the last few weeks I have avoided looking at anything in the 'Show Off' forum and turned off following Reaper on fb. And something miraculous happened 5 nights ago. I picked up a paint brush and finished 2 miniatures I had stopped working of 7-8 months ago. And I have been painting every other night since then.
