Have you guys ever gotten into a niche where you just can't draw? Im kinda stuck in one right now. I try to draw something, and it just won't come out. I'll try to draw a portrait, or a still life, or anything, for that matter. Its incredibly frustrating and upsetting. How do you get out of this?
It's called Drawing Block, or something, the equivalent of writer's Block. The best way that I've found to get out of it is simply to have the tenacity to draw a picture then move on, and not expecting it to be good. To take pride that you're able to produce drawings, not to expect yourself to produce anything good. Otherwise, can't be helped.

Can I get some opinions on this at the moment? Should I add some smoke to the volcanoes or add more light since they are at the peak of their eruptions. Also how does the flying debris look thus far? Any suggestions on those? The lava looks good to me but open to suggestions.
It's a volcanic piece. You want big, you want drama, you want as much smoke and lightening, and lighting, as you can possibly get - get cram as much dramatic positioning into it as you can possibly get, right now it looks fairly tame. Not happy with the smoke? Throw a lava-kraken in there. You heard me, a motherfucking lava-kraken. Plus the pictures of the Gods smiting mortals... and and fire, and more fire.
I got carried away, but you get the idea
