I’m doing an inktober prompt on Instagram. That and I am just busy with a lot of art stuff already for shows and junk. Check out videos on the things you want to recreated there are lots of free resources out there. Chin up we all start somewhere
I’ve had similar issues in the past but honestly, you can’t force creativity.
I came to ProCreate as a traditional oil painter and was irritated trying to emulate the look and feel of oils. So I download a ton of oil brushes and tried to recreate a painting I did traditionally to procreate. That helped.
I also follow people on instagram and youtube who make amazing work and that can sometimes spark creativity.
My favorite oil brushes are [these](https://www.artstation.com/marketplace/p/mOkq/procreate-oil-brush-pack-i) and [these](https://creativemarket.com/OlgaRom/5830141-Oil-Brushes-for-Procreate#fullscreen)
