Do you think art styles define how skilled you are at drawing?
my prime example is Mr. Pendalton Ward (creator of adventure time and bravest warriors)
most of you have seen his work in adventure time and i’ve even had people tell me to my face “he’s no artist, anyone can get a show on TV and draw simple stick figure bodies, hell i could do that!”. If you define an artist abilities based on just what you have seen from them than you’re not grasping the BIGGER PICTURE. I like to represent and experienced artist’s abilities as an ice burg, where, on one end you see the art they post and show to people and that you know them for, and the other end is everything they had spent hours, days, and nights practicing in order to get where they are. whether that be face, body, style, or shape studies, anatomy studies, real life drawing, cartoon practice, figure drawings, animations, realism sketches, ect, ect ,ECTTTT!!!
