The ideas flow like a river, it's my hands that don't want to work.

I'd have more drive to draw if what I drew looked like what I imagined.

I've got the drive and the ideas, they just don't usually come out 100% right when I draw them.

once I get started there's no problem. Sometimes I have a hard time finding drive but that's usually only because I can't think of anything to draw... and the hardest part for me is coming up with unique ideas. But if I have the idea then everything's peachy... too bad that's the hardest part for me... drawing it isn't too hard and if it doesn't come out how I wanted it to the first time I just draw it again (and again) till I get it how I want it! :D

Well it depends.... For me, if I have a specific idea the problem IS drawing because there is no way in hell I can make it the way I've pictured it in my mind. This is sometimes the worst thing ever...

When I start to draw, I have an amazing painting in my head...But unfortunately, my ability to creat shit in my head is greater than my hand's ability to try and recreate that... :(

finding the drive to draw it because if youre not into the drawing then it will really be hard to draw and you'll come up with ideas that doesn't really make sense to you.

Tho, if you have a really good idea then you'll have the drive to draw it...

Idk, depends on the person really, I'm in between finding the inspiration to do it and drawing it.

A combination of 1 and 2. Even when I do get an idea I really like, it never comes out as nice as it was in my head.

Finding the drive...but mainly finding the time because I have a kid and schoolwork. Hard to make time for all the ideas that are in my head. Slowly but surely, though. :)

I'm the kind of person who lacks the creativity, and usually just draws from photos (awful i know) so the "finding an idea" part doesn't really apply. The actual drawing is always hard, (we can never be perfect ;) ) and procrastination is key too...

I'm not the BEST of artists with my tablet, and get very impatient. I tend to erase my entire idea and start over simply because I never can get satisfied.

It depends, I find it hard to find something to draw..and while I find something there's always something that doesn't feel right. I struggle alot drawing hands and arms so I usually just leave unfinished drawings .-.
I can get many ideas but I struggle choosing what to draw and mix everything together that I make more decisions.

Drawing the picture OFC!!!
whatever you think whatever you want what ever you desire on the moment before you draw something its not too hard
the hardest part of all is how to convey your idea on the canvas
thats why we are all different
if i give you a ready idea you gonna draw it but if you look on my canvas you gonna see the same idea but different
because im thinking the same idea but with different perception

Inking/lining is definitely the hardest part for me. Just one little mistake and it could mess up your entire picture!

How about "finding the drive to take the time to clean up the sucker so you don't mess up the inking"? It takes so long...

It's hard to say whether it's the actual drawing of the picture or finding the drive to do it. There's always been this sort of gap between my creative mind and my technical skills, so I often think up really nice drawings and then don't have nearly enough technical skills to complete them. However, I'm sure I could find ways to complete the pictures if I had the drive to continue trying after a few failed attempts.
