Inspire The World!

Use Your Art, and Change Things

If you look back in time, you will see that great art has always been there, weather it be for political protest like the late 1960’s and early ‘70’s, or in celebration of life like the renascence. But now, we are falling from those high points. I keep looking around Elftown, and I see so many talented people that seem to have the same issue that I have… getting hung up on only what is right there in front of them. I believe that we need to change that, so I have created this wiki. It’s the place to post your inspirations, or links to your work. It is my hope that if enough people get here, then we can begin to see some real talent, when people begin to collaborate on some major projects. But all I can do is start this and hope some of you begin to post your work. Start with something you want help with, or that you are proud of, and post it, tell us why your proud of it, or what your looking for. I hope someone is brave enough to take the next step, only time will tell though!
And if you Just want to make fun of people, go to Bob's Diner, and have at it!

A Super Wiki Page
I'll put an explanation next to each of the links on the wiki page :)
I'm always looking for people to be honest when they critique my writing and I'm looking for more than 'it's good' or 'it's not my style, but it's okay' since that seems to be all I get. With drawing I merely want to draw whatever comes to mind and to make believable proportions with the human body.

A Soldiers Tale
This was inspired by my trip to Iraq, and how close those of us there together felt. As well as how hard it was to come home and leave it behind.
It is the best poem I hve ever written, but unfortunately, the rythem is off because it was saved with no spaces.. need to work on that. any suggestions?

Archives of Insanity
The quickest way to see my work is to read my house. This link is a collection of some of the stories I have uploaded here on Elftown. I am a poet, an artist, a writer and a dreamer. Creating is just, simply, what I love to do.

Eyden's Stories
There are so many aspects to the human condition that hasn't been touched, and I want to express that even the rottenest of people have a heart.

Easterling Photo Album - The Mysterious Building
I think that inspiration often comes when you're not expecting it. At least that was the case for me, when I did this experience, which resulted in these photos. On my trip to China, autumn 2008, we visited a tourist town outside Kun Ming called Dali and there were these Buddhist buildings called the Three Pagodas. I thought these old towers were amazing and completely breathtaking, and I was inspired to take a lot of pictures. I think it could be inspiration for both artists, photographers and writers, so that's why I'll post this link here! Enjoy!

a fairy tale I wrote back in high school. I believe it's my best work. My insperation was a mix of lesser known classic fairy tales, and historical places and people. I am proud of it that it encorporates nearly everything I have an interest in, from pacifism, romance, fantasy, history and religion. My concern is that the reader may not enjoy it if they do not also hold those interests. I also feel that some readers may take it as a religiour or pacifistic story trying to make a point, but I really only added those to make the story interesting and give the characters more depth.

Fifi McFu's Art /
I have always loved manga and anime and have been drawing it for ages, but I only recently started to really improve. I am actually branching away from the works on the wiki page now and more into the realm of semirealistic fan art, which can be seen on the dA page. Any tips you may have about semirealism are much appreciated, as well as manga tips!! ^^

[Duke Devlin]
Duke's Writing
I've always adored writing - this are a few of my miniature stories. XP My inspiration? Life. :)

[~*~Music Junkie~*~]
poetry of a junkie
I guess i would have to say, life and living are my greatest insporations. The things we know, the things we dont know. The things we love, the things that make us hurt. The adventure's we have, and the obsticals we over come. Society, and how it views us, how we view it...etc.

[The Black Cat in Your Path]
Cat-chan's Short Stories/Cat-chan's Art or Cat-chan's Art 2/Cat-chan's Pictures
There are lots of things that inspire me. Usually it's just the feel of a camera in my fingers or the creativity and pride of finishing a book.
I put my art up for others to admire, but constructive criticism about anything I post is always welcome. :)

HELL•YES -orrr- delight-in-a-cup
I'm not 100% sure what makes me do art, but, if I had to guess at inspiration, I would say anything fleeting, overlooked, unusual or beautiful. Including (but not limited to!) Music, autumn, science, other people, abandoned places, and other peoples work of any sort (writing, pictures, photography, blah blah blaah.) Criticism? Whatever you want to give, I'll take. Just be nice about it! :]

2010-01-07 [Ninja Smurf]: Akane you rock! :)

2010-01-08 [Easterling]: This is a good idea. I have some photos I could share, that inspired me a lot and that could be used to inspire others. Could I put that wiki up here, [Ninja Smurf]?

2010-01-08 [Ninja Smurf]: Yes you can!

2010-01-08 [Easterling]: Good. :)

2010-01-08 [Ninja Smurf]: whoop.. forgot to add a rule.. need a way back here from the wiki's if possible.

2010-01-08 [Easterling]: Oh ok! :)

2010-01-12 [Amanda Bastian]: this is pretty sweet :)

2010-01-14 [Amanda Bastian]: haha awesome :)

2010-01-22 [MoRoxy]: Ooh this is very interesting =]

2010-01-27 [Ninja Smurf]: Just a quick update for everyone; I am working on two other ideas along the lines of this. One will involve a group project, I have a lose idea of a direction for it, but need people that would be willing to contribute to it. If you are up for the challenge, send me a message!

2010-03-07 [wicked fae mage]: o.o *gasp*

2010-03-07 [Ninja Smurf]: Yay! Hopefully it will bring more people to join :)

2010-03-07 [Eyden13]: congrats

2010-03-15 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: What inspires me always is either love, or anger. As long as I am feeling something, I can write or paint. 

2010-03-15 [Ninja Smurf]: Do you have any examples that you can post?

2011-01-08 [Ninja Smurf]: Hmmmm.. very very quiet here lately...

2011-01-09 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: well..I have many examples of writing to hand..and yes it is pretty dead.
