"The role of a Concept Artist is the role of an explorer, tasked with charting a world without sunlight. (...)
You start off with your reference and research. These are well established base camps. They’re well lit, highly populated and safe. The better your reference the better your bearings will be. The artist’s job is to start at base camp with a bag of torches and run furiously out into the darkness. Every doodle, sketch, painting and storyboard is a torch lit somewhere out in the black."
-Matt Rhodes, Concept art behind scenes

I always remind myself this quote when I can't find "the right path" during my concept work. It's all about exploring new and mysterious land, and it's only depends on you how much it'll be fascinating.
