    Well.. I'm not the most creative person at all. BUT... if I get stuck, I just start drawing a head. I might add some weird stuff to the characters and keep it going from there.

    OR. I put all my music of shuffle an start drawing, certain words or lines from songs will make me draw something different..

    Take part in one of the multitudes of community activities (DSG, COW, IDW, Illustration Activity, Challenges, Sketch Swap, they're all over the place). And draw a self-portrait. The model should generally be available when you're ready to draw.

    Try a websearch for "photoshop coloring tutorial" or "painter coloring tutorial" or any other tutorial about something you'd like to learn more about. You'll find more sites and tutorials than you can do in year.

    If your skill level really is were you say, perhaps a more regimented apporach would speed your improvement. In that case, my advice would be to avoid thinking of color as making art better. If the drawing sucks, no amount of color will make it any better; it will simply be a colorful turd. Concentrate on line, form, proportions, anatomy, and value. Color will come.

    Same

    I able to pull things out of my mind at the most insignificant times

    for example before going to sleep

    But when I do have an assignment I cannot even get started even with older ideas I have no motivation to do it
