    Can't take full credit as you rehashed it, I do remember seeing video somewhere in youtube where guy (cant remember who) actually wrote mindmap of things that he want to paint, started from genre-> more specific like, sub genre, race, place etc. -> what comes to mind from previous word etc. when he got enough "branches" down then he would combine what he thought would be best ones together to get new idea.

    Good point. I tend to start from a genre and then branch out as you describe. Sometimes I am random on purpose so the topic is more unpredictable and has more room for creative interpretation. Thanks.
