So, I have

So, I have been getting into drawing lately and I think I'm okay but I have been copying a lot of other artists' work to get better (I cite it though so it is not plagarisim) and I feel like those are the only good drawings I make. Do you guys have any tips on how to move away from this stage? (I know it is an important part of learning but I want to make good original art) I think it is definitely a great place to start when you are first learning, and I add my own touches to it is a bit more mine but I want to make something I am really proud of without seeing other people's art and basing it off of that.

Wow, you sound like zme when I started art, I would sit there with a picture of BTS or Kpop bands and just draw that exact picture, but then I woulkd trace the main outline once I got better, and put my own character in it. Then, soon enough I didn't need the reference and I was good.

You could try drawing from photographs or life, which is helpful even if you're drawing something fantastical/cartoonish, especially for drawing people's proportions. And even if you're drawing without a reference of any kind, just practicing at that will probably help you get better.
