I'm sorry to hear that, lollige. However are you sure the imagination this is an actual physiological problem and not something you've been told you have/you've misinterpreted you have, because I find it really odd that someone cannot 'imagine' a backstory for an imaginary character. Are you sure you tried hard enough, or are you self-crippling yourself for some reason? How old are you, also?

Odd it is, and yes im shure about it. I can imagine things, but not into the details, so if I would imagine a big illustration like huzba had said, there would only be a start in it for a drawing, and the rest on the information only comes when I zoom in on one piece of that. Im 15.
Its very hard to explain, and there are thousands of books written about my problem, but if you want to have a bit of information:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDD-NOS
thats not very much, but Asperger syndrome looks alot like it, and there is much more information on that..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger_syndrome

Can we continue on the pixels now  ::) ;) :P

age has a tremendous lot to do with technical skill, extent of real-life observation, confidence (or arrogance), affluence with regards to culture, and many other things.  Don't worry, Helm isn't a creep ^^.

my mother is a specialist in the field of disorders with expertise in high-functioning autism.  If you want to be able to create characters, she suggests that you write down aspects of many different characters on little cards which you can mix and match at random for ideas, using that as a framework rather than relying on thoughts alone, then if you get used to this, you might be able to chose possible aspects from your memory, rather than "imagination".  Many people who are not as hindered still find this a very beneficial practice for planning any kind of project.  It's worth a shot, i think.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

yeah you've made a big excuse (truthful or not i don't really care) for the lack of personality of the character, but that doesn't stop you improving your pixel-art technique.

Sorry if I'm late on THIS one, but I'm not sure why people have to use excuses relating to diseases, when it's their skills at fault. I don't want to boast about myself, I've had my fair share of problems, but at my age, I already was able to draw very decently. However, he's atleast made a decent attempt, it suffers from the points others have pointed out.
