Something I like to do on occasion is take work I like from another artist and remake it in my own style. I came across a work by hamid_bahrami on Blenderartists.org called Fantasy Cottage (Day), found here https://blenderartists.org/t/fantasy-cottage-day/1372107 .
My version involved little modeling and more than a few assets from Megascans. Throw in a dash of Botaniq, which is amazing by the way, hit render, and this pops out. Created in Blender 3.1 and rendered in just over four minutes at 64 samples, including compositing time. Blender is just getting better an better with every release!
