Hi Viria! I have a bit of a problem...everything I draw seems to end up looking like a preexisting object or character that’s already popular, and I don’t mean it ;-; what should I do?
I think it’s something the majority of creaters feel. You draw something and then you see there’s already a very similar pose, very similar idea, very similar character. At this point it’s hard to create something completely new and unique the world hasn’t seen before.
If you know the character looks very similar to someone, try to give them particular features that the already existed character doesn’t have. So you made someone with blue hair and there’s already, like, Kuroko, for example. Give them different haircut, or different lopsided ears, or different build or an eye colour etc etc. Still, you don’t have to necessarily do it. Leave yourself some fun;)
