    Stop looking at other peoples' work. Do life studies and get inspiration from the world around you. It's like Lennon said: think for yourself. Oh, and questions like yours tend to be open targets for flame attacks. Just for your information.

    One solution is to steal the ideas from mother nature instead, as she haven't made any Copyright claims. Then you combine stuff, combine again, learn what lines and shapes that are nice to look at, let the pen wander, suddenly see things, build on that.

    Start drawing from life. Practice taking “boring” subjects and making them interesting.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Go out into life, find what interests you, fashion? music? Dance? Combine everything you like and it will most likely thrust your imagination into it's own world.
