So, since I've joined this community- I've had one goal: To express my creative elements without the burden of potentially evil or ungodly influences. That is, to not accidentally have a 'puppeteered hand' in my drawing or writing. I've immensely wanted to begin some form of story driven comic- but every other character I create feels... off... I've had a bad run of using my creative influence in questionable and bizarre ways for a good five or so years, and I've been trying to stretch out my ability to design and plot without falling back into that hole with one wrong idea or concept(such as evil beings taking the spotlight as 'good' characters.)
So, CCAS- How do you deal with keeping your inspiration in check? How do you fuel your creative flow without potentially inviting dark clouds and breathing life into unclean characters? Do you ever get bad sensations when an idea is potentially awry or from a possibly demonic source? Do you pray about your ideas or just go with the flow without taking it into much consideration? I'm curious!
