|How do you evaluate whether an idea is good or not?
By the excitement it generates in me.
An idea is good if it keeps pulling me back to do variations of a theme.
Is it a me-too idea or original? Does it innovate? Does it inspire my imagination?
Again, I never completely abandon an idea. I can be a bit self-conscious of my ideas (as I'm sure many artists are) and this will make me weary to put something down on paper. I've learned to do it anyway, though, and have found that once I revisit an idea, I'll see it from a new perspective. As far as choosing what's "good" goes, I comb through my sketchbooks to find ideas that are in keeping with the series that I'm working on at the time.
How much passion it evokes, but I can be fooled.
If an idea can be trivialised easily, then it's not worth pursuing - let the mugs have it.
When it comes to magic, its "audience testing"..I come up with a new idea I show it to other ppl...then I show it other magicians...that is how I evaluate it.
Think about it, visualize it, then if it's STILL interesting, try it out
You experience the work and you know the technical part is easy; you got it or you didn't!!! The Mysterious part is easy to, it grabs you or not.
I am my own worst critic so if I am pleased with the finished work I consider it a good idea. I don't do alot of preliminary work and if the picture gets finished and I don't want to throw it away, the idea was at least worth doing.
i don't really evaluate if something is a good idea or not. i usually just go for it - and if it doesn't turn out right, the i'll definitely know it wasn't a good idea. i always say try!
i come back to it, over and over and over...
This is tough, and it really all rests on your own shoulders. If you can't decide if your idea is good or not... then it probably isn't good. If you can't decide then there's no point in working on it - you won't enjoy the process and you'll rarely be happy with the result. If you're not sure, just think of your idea's purpose - what is it you're trying to achieve?
I either build it and see how well it works, or I think about it long enough to figure out how well it will work before I build it. Usually the latter.
I can tell in my heart if an idea will be a success. You just know it as an artist.
