So my magnum opus is heavily PMMM-inspired, and I intend to do a lot of surreal stuff with its imagery. I've already gone from doing just 'pretty' things like this-
To more storytelling-oriented things like this:
And the imagery is only going to get more intense in the future. I'm looking forward to giving it my best shot, but tbh I'm already starting to feel like I might be getting in over my head. I seem to run out of ideas really fast, and I don't know if I'm making good use of the panel space...
So I'm wondering how people who regularly do this kind of art generate their ideas...what kinds of things do you think about when you're designing a piece; especially one with a theme?
