Grave mistakes by Tapwing Grave mistakes by Tapwing
Sometimes when you're just not sure what to paint it pays to just pick your favourite brush start throwing paint strokes at the canvas. 
You might start to see something in the mess. 
For me I used a large rough square-ish brush and jotted down some strokes that curved together slightly down the centre. 
I started to see mountains and thought " I wonder if I could set up a scenario in there" 
Eventually I worked my way up to this.

Drawn in Procreate.

Looks awesome, as if the fire breath was slashing the very air itself.

What have I done? I released it. I brought my comrades to their doom. All because I was drawn to it. The fire. The Prospect of power.

You got this just by doing some brush strokes?

That's amazing. I've done that before where I had no idea what to draw so I would just grab a pencil and start making random shapes on the paper till I started to see something and would begin connecting the shapes till something came out of it.

But this amazing!

Well less boredom and more extream undecisevness with 10 other unfinished projects. Sweating a little... Thought it better to paint something rather than just stare blankly at a screen again. 

Took a while to turn it into something after the initial venting at a canvas, But I'm quite happy with how it turned out. 
Thanks :D

The things that can come out of mere boredom are impressive usually!
