Ugh... Does anyone have a cure for artist block? I have been starting, stopping, and throwing out ideas for this left and right. I just cant seem to paint what I want, it always comes out looking like crap, and I know I am better then that!

Hi Riktor,

just take the scientific steps.

1st - Choose to do either a panorama or a close view
2nd - Draw something with the correct composition ( go for the thumbnail testing )
3rd - Add the apropriate lighting conditions
4th - Start adding textures
5th - Add other elements

and that's it, you have yourself an image. No need for extraordinary artist skills. When I feel blocked I do these steps and make something. It is better having something than nothing at all :)

Come on, start working :) you cannot fail this competition. You gave the idea!
