How to Find Your Art Style

How to Find Your Art Style



hi everyone so in this video I am going to be talking about art style again but I wanted to expand on my previous video so this is kind of like a part two it's sort of like a different method and more like hands-on approach to finding your style we're in the in the other video I kind of explained how your style can develop on its own so in this video I'm going to be telling you some tips that can help you actually influence your style and change your style on your own without letting it develop by itself so things you can actually do to help your style develop first of all I began drawing in that anime style and a few may be around a year ago now I decided to change it to more of a semi realistic style and it took me a really long time to kind of find find my path and now it's kind of becoming something a little bit more cartoony and I'm starting to realize how much I like cartoonish kind of drawings so I have like a semi realistic style and I have my cartoony style and I have my really cartoony style so I have more than one style but I'm still developing my style but from the previous video to now I think I've come a long way in terms of my art style and I kind of have an idea of what I want it to look like finally after practicing for so long so the first thing I would say especially if you want to make a drastic style change is look up artists that draw in style that you are aiming for so say you currently draw on the anime style but you want to draw something more of a cartoony look so look at the look of a bunch of different cartoon artists and just notice the way that they stylize things and you might even want to try some of this yourself so like say they make the eyes really big and make the eyelashes like really pointy like triangles or something you might want to try integrating little bits and pieces from a bunch of different styles that you find and then start experimenting with them and playing with them and merging them into your own style this don't don't completely copy other artists styles but use them as inspiration and kind of like like a Kickstarter to to go on the path to finding your own style that is what I did because I was so stuck in the anime style like the first thing I'm pretty sure the first thing that I decided to change or one of the first things that I was really really working on was the mouth because I used to only draw a line for the mouth I wouldn't draw actual lips so I looked at a whole bunch of artists on Instagram to see how they drew lips and I took a lot of inspiration from them and I even copied some of them just to get a hang of it of drawing actual lips and slowly I merged it into my own style of drawing lip it's not like completely original but it is a part of my style and it's now a way I draw a lips all the time and it took some practicing and I had to see how other artists did it because I really had no nothing else to base it off of so looking at other artists styles is really really helpful it's not a way of like don't like copy their style but see how they stylize things and it can give you some ideas also explore many different styles you might think that you want a semi realistic style but you might find out that you actually enjoy drawing anime more or you actually enjoy drawing cartoon so don't be afraid to experiment even if it's a style that you don't think you're going to end up wanting to draw with um just just keep a sketchbook for your style practice or just use your sketchbook to practice style in and try many different styles and explore as many different styles as you can change up the way you draw eyes in each of the drawings that we draw noses and like go between different facial features stylized combinations and eventually you might find something that you really like that you wouldn't have thought of before because of all the experimentation that you did and also it is completely fine and actually it's a good thing to have more than one style this proved that that you have a variety of things that you can draw as an artist and having more than one style kind of leaves the doors open to all the different kinds of things you can draw you say you can draw really realistically but you also love drawing comics that's a really good thing to have to be able to draw in more than one style but the hard part is making each of those styles your own unique style and that takes practice and improving your Anatomy and improving on the fundamentals of art so style isn't just about the way you draw things it's also the way you color things and the themes that you use in your art and the way you compose your drawings or your line quality all of that goes into your style and all of that takes a lot of practice to get better at and the more you improve your anatomy and your art and do studies from real life the easier you'll find it to actually control your style because you'll know the rules a lot better so you can break the rules better people say that a lot you have to know the rules before you can break them and I don't think you necessarily have to be a master at everything in order to have your own style you can be a complete beginner and have your own style of art and every artist does have their own style because no two artists draw exactly the same way so you do have a style it just takes some time to really explore it and help it blossom into what you really want it to become so definitely improving your art can improve your style and you can practice your style alongside doing studies that's kind of what I do I'll draw some stuff I like open up my sketchbook I might practice a bit of anatomy and then I'll practice my style a little bit I kind of practice them at the same time and as one improves the other improves kind of just Anatomy in general improves as you draw more people so if your style is more based on drawing people which I guessing it probably is the more people you draw the more you'll be able to develop your style into something that you want it to be so after you kind of have an idea of what kind of style you want after you looked at a bunch of artists styles and you explored many different styles based on what you saw from those artists and based on what Styles you already know exists like anime and cartoon styles and you like vary and you change up the way you draw each facial feature and come up with different combinations once you kind of find what you like I just recommend like filling up a whole page of like trying to to draw the style over and over and over and practice and continue to sketch out slightly different styles until you find the exact one that you want and if you keep trying to draw in the same style eventually it will start to become easier and like second nature and you'll start making very subtle changes to your style as you continue to draw in different styles and eventually it will all kind of boil down to to one single style that you will be able to be more consistent in because you've practiced it so much so try to if you want a consistent style try to be consistent with it and practice a lot and in the beginning it might seem like you can't draw anything in the same style everything everything looks different but honestly the more you this the more your style will start to look more consistent and I have definitely experienced this over the last year of me trying to develop my style and as I will continue to develop my style it's starting to become easier and I'm starting to actually see where I want my art to go which is really exciting because I haven't really seen that in a very long time or maybe not even ever I've never really had my own style before but it's starting to kind of develop and it's all because I've been doing a lot of sketching in my sketchbooks and they don't have to be perfect sketches just quick sketches doodles of trying to figure out your style that is the best way to develop your style and don't expect it to change right away it takes time but all the hard work you put in it will be worth it it might even take a year kind of like it did for me but your style is always constantly developing so it never really stops changing so you can develop your style for for a really long time and you might be satisfied with it for the entire time while your style continues to change each style you liked but it starts to kind of mold into something that you like even more and there's really no limit to how much you can improve and how much your style can develop so just put in the time and eventually you'll find something that you're happy with and then it will start to get even better than that so I hope this video helped you with your style I also have a part one talking about how your style can develop on its own so if you're interested I will link that above thanks for watching if you have any tips about finding your style leave them in the comments because people will definitely find that helpful and I will probably find it helpful too so I hope you enjoyed this and I'll see you in my next video I

  26. here's a tip. don't copy other artists styles exactly, i did that at first but i felt guilty. instead, just draw whatever is on your mind, draw something you can remember from memory. like if your art teacher says "okay class draw a female character the way you would do it" you should be able to remember exactly what to do. I found my art style by watching tons of videos daily and just drawing non stop. my art style is a mix of many people's art styles but it's very unique
