All I can say is get a model (maybe a TLK figurine or a stuffed animal), and look at it from the point of views you're trying to do. :3

you're just going to have to force yourself, no matter how boring and painful it will likely be. x) To get unstuck, you have to do something different. And like Serge said, a model will always help, and you might want to look at some other fanart or screen shots done differently, and work from those.

Or even diffrent shots of real animals help to. I've noted you've been stuck that way for a bit. I get in habbits similiar myself..like only drawing characters facing left. =P

What serge said is good, and the real pics thing may work to.

Random:But from the statues thing..maybe get some modeling clay, and if you have a knack for sculpting do a basic figure, and work from there.

Watch the movies and pause it when the chars are out of 3/4th view. That's what I do.
I kinda like 3/4ths view...heh.

usually people will stick to drawing what they know; what's in their brian's catalouge. Just find a bunch of pictures of animals in crazy views (even if it makes for unflattering art) and sketch/sketch/sketch. you'll fill your head with ideas about how things work from every angle.
