All you can do really is just keep drawing new things. Try something you've never done before! Scribble a flower, or a landscape, or see if you can realism. You'd be surprised at what you can learn simply by doing something new, even if you'll never draw that subject again!

Your art is classic and wonderful. Saying your art is stale is like saying London or Paris is stale. It's a classic beloved by all who view it.

I still have weak points I need to work on and a couple have already given me critiques for this and I really really appreciate it I strive for that kind of stuff ;;

I would critique but I genuinely don't see anything I could point out.

stale as in old?  ??? Nah--your style is great..  it's different,  but if you're seeking criticism I could give you some (though,  it's not coming from a good artist) 

I think you should use smaller thinner lines as well,  it could also improve your Lineart skills.  besides the fact that your lineart is p good,  it's just that the lines look odd.  You could also look up pictures of animals,  and study how the stretch,  sit,  balance,  etc. you can also use this strategy for humans as well. Studyinganatomy of human bodies or animals may work as well, you can always looks forward to bone searching andstuff. And I also found out that your drawings have detail,  but it's not accurate. It seems misplaced imo.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT  I THINK YOU'RE A REALLY GREAT ARTIST,  IDK WHAT TO SAY ANYMORE WHATSOEVER.  WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT,  HAHA. 
IGNOREE IF MY ADVICE DOESNT HELP,  ITS KINDA TERRIBLE ASDJEKSSIDIWN

I always thought you used too thick of lineart with not enough weight variation, the thinner the lines are, the more room there is for variation and detail. But that's just my opinion.

Also, I don't see enough colour variation in the colours you use (I.E. using orange/reddish orange to shade yellow, deep blue to shade cyan, deep purple to shade blue, dark red to shade pink, grey toned colours to shade white, etc, etc.), and it looks like you focus too much on pose rather than structure.

Maybe you should sketch out a bunch of faceless figures that focus on structure, yet focus on different angles of what you usually draw, doesn't have to be figures, can be whatever you struggle with, be it hands, bodies, legs, anything.

I don't think your style is bad, it's unique, just needs some fine-tuning. :dummy:

Mm thank you for your insight ;; I might try that

I do try to shade/light with colors different from the original but it does still look a little awkward

But thanks for the ideas! I'm very open to constructive criticism
