Artist's Block

I feel like I haven't had much inspiration for drawing lately. It seems like I keep drawing the same thing over and over again, and I hate that because I know that's not improving at drawing over all but improving at drawing one thing and one thing only. I've been sketching a lot, but I haven't done a final illustration for about a month now and I'm getting rather bored. It would seem as if  I have slipped into another block and it's slowing down my art. What do all of you do if you get into an artist's block, any suggestions? Or what do you do when you need inspiration? What do I need to do with my art to take it to the next level? 
Here's another sketchdump from this last little while.

Sketchdump 2






I'm going to go draw now.

SHOUT OUT TO CJ

This is a big shout out to Elder Gordon, by big bro who's nearly home from his mission. I talked to him today on the phone and he said that he's allowed to view blogs, so I'm going to update some animation for him to see. 
CJ, if you're reading this, know how proud I am of you! You're doing a fantastic job and I can't wait for you to come home. I love you!
This is a quail animation I did last...fall, I want to say? Yeah.

This next animation is not finished, but I like it so far. It's Owen from the University's "The Lion and the Mouse" film. Owen is insanely fun to animate. The fact that he's a round, cute, Disney-ish character could be a factor in this. I'll upload the final when I get it done.

Whoo-hoo, animation!

In which I find a new favorite superhero

Due to the the recent lack of updates, I've decided to post that Ironman is the greatest superhero ever.




I wish I could draw superheroes.
And on another note:
