    Help!

    Ok so here's the deal, I'm painting my ceiling and I have 20-30 tiles that are pretty big in size and I'm painting on some murals and stuff and I'm trying to base it off of natural things... like right now I'm working on a starry night with a comet...

    So the thing is I don't have 20-30+ ideas... and i need some ideas... I doubt they'll be anything amazing but I'm tired of staring at a white ceiling... so I'm using my boredum productively.

    Anything is welcome and there will be pictures to follow...

    Depends on how skilled you are rly.
    collourfull dark clouds and such usually look really great but are a bit hard to do i imagine. Googling around a bit you should easily be able to find examples such as these: Link. Maybe look up the painted ceilings of churches etc and pick out the parts you think are doable, for instance some sunset or something.

    I'm curious how its gonna turn out tho ^^ so bring on those pics!

    I'm going to counter those clouds with stripes, not hard to do and can get rly rly nice with the right colors.. and im talking about like 3 different colors and diagonal pattern in the rectangular celing with variations of white-gray-black.
    3 huge diagonal stripes. Well maybe my taste is funny... But hey i'd have it in my strange home.

    hmm, sound dreamlike, i like that. Black base paint and the detail work with the image of the earth and the moon(?) not to forget the light effects of the comet will be difficult but who wouldn't love to just stare into that ceeling later on.

    Or just something simple as square patterns like modern art although with some kind of IRL motive mixed into it?

    well since its a bunch of tiles some kind of mosaic image might be doable. paint a bunch of tiles in the same collor to make an image of a star or something. Linky
