So here I am, still using PS 6 (we have a copy of PS 7 around the office\nsomewhere, but since I don't have a scanner or tablet hooked up to this\ncomputer yet, I haven't gone digging too deeply), I've been certified since\nJune 2000, but you know... it's boring.\n\nNot that Photoshop really is, I mean, it's a lot of fun when you're in there\nworking, putting time in, but when your work strays away from the graphical,\nit kind of becomes a question of: What to do in Photoshop?\n\nSome people create art. I myself am a traditional artist, so I'm used to\nstarting out drawing something, then scanning it in and using PS to work it\nup. But what do you do (what can you do?) when you're sitting there with PS\nopen, and a big ol' blank canvas, with nothing particular in mind? I'm\ntalking inspiration. Not your typical artistic inspiration, but more\nspecifically, photoshop inspiration.\n\nAm I making sense here? If I'm uninspired, I can open a drawing pad, scratch\nsome lines, doodle, until something reveals itself. But Photoshop\n(especially sans tablet) is a different tool, a different creature. It seems\nto me you have to go into it with something in mind, or else you just don't\nget a full experience.\n\nAnybody ever face this issue?
