This is hard.

This is hard. - student project

I tried to make a city but I'm not sure if I like it. I think that I have the skill in me, but I lack the creativity and knowledge. I have no idea what makes shapes appealing and how to make it look believable. This is also my first time using Photoshop. I'd say that I'm pretty good at making characters, and I know how to paint them, but when it comes to stuff like this I get overwhelmed by the detail -even with custom shapes because I don't even know what custom shapes to use.
