    Work with your basics, that will help you getting confident on what you do, and the rest will come easier. Bridgeman, Loomis and drawing from life is the easiest way to go.

    There's is NO need to make a new topic about your art sucking when you've just read about it another thread, you'll get exactly the same answers. Follow what was mentioned in the other thread.

    First calm down.

    Second, draw from life.

    Third, find an anatomy book. And copy it over into your notebooks.

    Fourth, when you want to draw a picture, relax, lay back and close your eyes. Dream in your imagination the scene. Try to imagine it very clearly, like you are there. Every day work on training your imagination this way for a little while. And then when you get a good image in your head, see if you can hold it there. And then draw from that image, just as you would draw from something that is front of you. Trace the image from your imagination onto paper.

    Good luck.

    Read books that haven’t been made into films and cast them with unknowns in your mind. Become the director and frame each scene. Will you get an Oscar?

    Though much good advice has been said, if you're worried about creating something COOL and original, just doodle anything, and yeah, relax!! It'll be torture for you if you don't get that pencil on paper and even scratch a line or two over it! Sometimes a great character (or a poor one, doesn't matter) can be born from nothing but a couple lines and curves that happen to move JUST right.

    Good success!!

    Actually, I don't think your issue with creating different positions, views, stances, etc for your created characters is a problem with IMAGINATION at all. It's a problem with KNOWLEDGE. And it's the same knowledge problem all artists face... namely, you just don't have enough knowledge - yet.

    It's MUCH easier to copy a pose that's already been thought out than to create your own. In fact it's darn near impossible without significant foundation, knowledge, and understanding of anatomy. That's why artists use models, photographs, manikins, etc.

    What you're saying here is essentially, "Damn - I wish I had a Ferrari... I mean, I know what a Ferrari looks like, so why can't I just take my Kia and bang out the body a little? What's wrong, I must be mechanically dumb or something." For now, be happy with your one boring straight-on view... with more practice and understanding, you'll add to that.

    its not that you don't have creativity its just that you don't have the skills to execute your ideas, at 10 you just drew because you enjoyed it as an adult you now have a more fixed idea of what your drawing should be but your probably lacking in the basics

    www.fineart.sk - good resource for books on anatomy and perspective

    maybe take life drawing classes, prepare a portfolio and if you want to break to into the industry try enrol in an art college.
