Join the club. I've operated and built ray tracers, fractal generators 
and so forth, but when I want to actually draw something, I always end 
up staring at a blank screen thinking "hmm, what might be cool?"

I have no idea how the professionals do this. Try drawing a cube and 
writing on it "cornflakes". It looks rubbish, right? Now go to any shop 
that sells cornflakes... all the boxes look amazing, right? How the **** 
do they do that??
