':cool:' being original can be hard. as for the best ways to do this i cant really say. ive been drawing so long i usually get what i want with not much effort.
but there are times where there may be something i dont like or i am unsure of. (example- how far does the nipples move when an arm is streaches upwards)anatomy can be hard to learn. as ive only really put effort into really tring last few years.
now i dont know what skill level you are at, what you draw or what problems you have besides . your art looking like anothers. still its very unlikely this will happen often/ hasnt happened to me yet.

but the best advice i could give any artist, is to overcome your problems you must practice a lot. and i mean if you have a problem with drawing hands, feet whatever. make the effort to learn it, by drawing it many time from refferences OTHERS ART ARE NOT GOOD REFFENCES- (you will never be original if you, copy others work) not to menchion you may make more mistakes by doing so. since we are not perfect, all art has its imperfections. learn to draw what you see, practice drawing without an eraser, you will learn faster. and also you learn how to thinkout the things you are doing, better. after you have mastered to some degree of doing this, work on drawing what you see in your mind. using all the things you know about the real world
-and i cant stress enough learning anatomy, from pics, life, magazines , and books
-also learn perspectives. this hurts many artist, that are too lazy to put effort into making good backgrounds.
-and lastly, learn how to draw animals.
i say this last before it is the least important, in my opinon. for without these things behind it, your work will never be that good.

i dont give advice i dont use, if you like my work. then i hiope you take some of my advice to use. i can post some links to good books ive found very usefull. if you want.

and i hope this does help you some

The hardest thing I find when drawing is coming up with a pose.  It helps if you yourself get into the position you want to draw to get a feel for it, and see what goes where (of course with yiff art this isn't always advised '<img'> ).  As for the rest, follow Lordstacker's suggestions, I highly suggest not using an eraser.  I always do my sketches with a ballpoint pen.  Also, the better you know your anatomy, not only will your drawings be better, but you'll also be able to pull off some crazy poses.

Myself, I'll start with an idea and start doing crude rough sketches- not even trying for details or neatness. I'll doodle the idea over and over, and each time something will change as my mind works thru the idea. Eventualy I'll hit on something that just jumps out at me and I'll then go from there. On days that I can't find a starting point I'll go back thru my doodles (I save them all) and see if something that I rejected triggers any fresh ideas. I've had a doodle that just went nowhere for months suddly jump out at me and with a small change be just what I wanted.
  I will use pics I find as references for backgrounds (my BIG weakness) every now and then, adding my own subject matter fore the pic.

I do kind of like Sporty Fox does, keep a sketch book of all my doodles and sometimes a rejected one will pop out and be "the one"
What I do to get ideas:
Look at nature books with animal pictures.
Read magazines like Smithsonian and National Geographic. Articles about far-away ruins or hidden jungles really fire my imagination
Read a really good book with an exciting plot
Listen to my favorite music
Dreams are always a great bet
My cats ^_^ always a source of laughs.

I have never had a deep interest in revenge. Revenge is the concern of those who are at some point or other beaten.

Yes, get a sketchbook or have some sort of way to save all of your drawings.  I've got many sketchbooks just full of sketches that never saw daylight.  It's a great source of ideas or insiration.
