I have lived my entire life with mostly parasocial relationships and only consuming content. The only things I've produced myself are related to either programming or translating, so not very creative at all.

So I just wanted to ask: How does one become creative?

 No.179926

Like with most things it comes down to practice and study.

Beside, being creative is overrated if you can't actually produce something competently with that creativity.

If you're being creative to produce for others than you're not purely being creative in the first place. It should be some sort of emotional release ideally. I'm not sure how to do it exactly though, I would like some tips from others.

Oh look, it's you.
The guy who strawmans everything anyone says.
You aren't creative in the practical sense if you don't create anything.
Produce means to make something. Or in other words to create. If you lack the skills necessary to create the thing you imagine then you are not actually creating anything. You are just daydreaming.

>It should be some sort of emotional release ideally.

Says who?
You can create and be creative for any number of things will most of those reasons being equally valid.

Anyway I am leaving before I get more pissed off with more stupid srawmaning. Probably does it intentionally for more engagement.
Fuck you.

Not sure what I said that triggered you so badly. Try and reread my post in a friendly tone. I think you're interpreting discussion as an attack.

If you are doing creative hobbies focusing too much on making money off of it, or sharing it with others nonstop, marketing, whatever it may be; then you are going to burn out hard. You gotta just do it for yourself to get the stuff out of your head. I'm not that other poster

you should watch the netflix series 'the art of design.' it takes you through the eyes of different experts for many different fields of design. it really opened my eyes up to the meaning behind creativity.

another good series to watch is 'blown away.' its about glass blowing, but it shows you what it means to create good art. i think you'll get a lot out of these series.

programming can be creative

 No.180520

Look up "creative programming and procedural generation"
even game dev can be creative or any kind of coding where you are creating something

It might sound a bit esoterical, but for alchemists, there are two complementary processes called solve and coagula.

Solve is analysis: the deconstruction of things to understand how they work. Surround yourself with works of the artform you wish to create. If you want to make music, you have to explore music first. Same goes with writing, or visual arts. Anything starts with research. That is how you get inspiration. "Good artists copy, great artists steal." according to Picasso.

Coagula is synthesis: after deconstructing, it's time to put everything back together. Use the knowledge and influence of others and apply it to your own art.

I actually am taking a lot of this from Alan Moore, who I admire greatly. That video is the most important thing I have ever watched. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1qACd0wHd0

Alchemist tended to be wrong about everything including psychology and metaphysics.
I don't think their advice holds any value.

Alchemists were actually pretty good and the equivalent of most scientists and doctors of today. The discovery of many elements and chemical processes were through their efforts.

You don't have to take it literally, but the process of creating something inevitable starts with research and then practice.
