As an artist, the most important sense to you is your sight (at least most of the time).  If you lose your sight, you wont be able to see what you’re creating, which is kind of the point.

However, you should not get stuck on only one sense! You have at least 4 (or 5 if you’re spiritual, or a vampire from Twilight) other senses that are useful in developing your creativity. In my opinion, music is probably the next largest inspiration. Have you ever found yourself imagining when you listen to music? Anyone else picture characters in some cheesy music video? In a cartoon? Involved in epic adventures? You’ll find that music can dance a beautiful waltz with your mind. Whatever you do, don’t ignore those images. When you listen to music, you begin to see with your mind’s eye! Write down those images, what you see, how you feel, try to portray them in your art-pieces.

Music is drawing those images, thoughts, feelings, from a part of your mind that you can’t access easily without incentive. Movies & books can also be a great inspiration. I watch movies & get some awesome ideas pushing their way into my mind.  Therefore I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to watch more movies…
