It's looking better - the subtle rendering you did at the back changed the way everything looks. Now the monster is more menacing, has expression even though it's obscured in darkness and fog. Also the rocks around look better. So - to find your inspiration, I say - be bolder and experiment. Save a copy and experiment with not so subtle brush strokes, render forms. Make new sketches of old things, that kind of stuff. Inspiration is lurking around the corner.
