Lots of people have no imagination. I look at reference photos all the time.

Not too bad, you have potential, the most important thing is that you recognise and are okay with the fact that you aren't Davinci -today-.

Some tips for beginner 2-D artist, these are taught at the college level:

1. Study human anatomy, and use it in combination with animal anatomy for more realistic fantastic interpretations.

2. Look up the term ''gesture drawing'' and do ALOT of it. It WILL help.

3. Learn how to use sighting and measuring techniques for both photos and real life objects/people.

4. Don't be afraid to use reference images for ANYTHING. Use multiples, mix things together, it's even okay to trace some things so long as the piece you end up with is either for the sake of practice or unique enough not to be easily recognised as a copy.

5. Learn the elements and principals of design and practice using them in your work. Learn about the idea of the 'picture plane' and how your eye moves through an artwork.

6. Don't be afraid of critique, seek it OFTEN, and try your best to trust or at least try what people suggest. Try to recognise whether someone is helping and when they are just being a dick. Sometimes critiques hurt.

7. Don't get hung up on nekos, anime, manga and that style. It's fine to do, but people often don't like to take you seriously. Also, learning how to draw from REAL LIFE will make your fantastic interpretations more believable and therefore good.

This sounds like ALOT I know, and it kind of is, but if your serious about art in any way, even if you just do it for fun and want to be a good artist just 'cuz', its worth it. Try one or two of these things at a time and enjoy the journey of learning. Whether you sell work or just draw for the sake of drawing, seeing yourself improve beyond anything you could have conjured now is a gift like no other.
