I don't know why....

for some reason for years and years since about 12 all i ever really get the urge to draw are 60% cats, 10% dogs, 20% lions and 10% dragons and 10% odd animal. I don't have the urge to draw people, landscapes and other things not listed. I regret it alot as my skills are terrible compared to the others in my class. I feel like I get stuck in this loop that I can't get out of.
Maybe I don't have the drive to draw or improve my skills or the patience to draw and draw and draw constantly and drawing different things as I would loose concentration/attention span. I also don't think I have talent at all so thats also a demotivator. I also tried to do 2 comics. I had 2 separate stories I planned out from start to finish. Each time I get to a certain page eg 4 or 5 I get bored and lose interest. I didn't realise that drawing the same thing over and over would get old fast. I thought if I liked what I was doing it would be okay, you know?
Also when I attempt to digital paint something i get to a certian point and can't concentrate anymore. Its an endless cycle. And one more thing i find when i DO finish something I am never satisfied with how it turns out. So I feel like whats the point?
So why do i have this problem? ADD? Lack of passion and drive? i don't know.

You need more motivation!
I had similar problems myself. Can't concentrate, hardly can finish any of my works and drawing nude girls all the time...
For me it was wishing for the result and not enjoying the process itself! Just relax, don't look on anyone else (ok, just don't harshly compare with yourself, you have your own pass to walk) and enjoy the process itself!
If you're worrying about painting only one kind of things - just ask for commissions, people around will help you!
I solved my problem pretty roughly - I started a job where all I must do is painting environment, landscapes and backgrounds which was a weak spot for me.
Cheers, don't give up on yourself!
