You're awesome and please don't worry too much about what happened. We all make mistakes and you recognized that and apologized, which makes you an amazing person! I usually obsess over my mistakes and so I completely understand that crappy feeling of "oh no, what did I do?". Also, I'm curious as to how you developed your style as an artist and also how you realized that it was YOUR unique style?
Thank you, lovely! I guess we all have bad days. I was dreading coming in so that’s probably what got me all twisted up on the inside. ^^
I’ve addressed this a few times before, but it’s always good to show others how style works. And style is a really weird thing. Some people come by it easily and others don’t. It took me a long time to sort myself out. Only recently have I sort of come into my own. Even so, my style will continue to change and evolve. It’s just what it does.
Here’s one of the first Sherlock arts I ever did:
And now it looks like
I have all sorts of trouble with noses. It’s probably what evolved most over time. You can see a distinct exaggeration. The eyes, too. Went from really small to really big. It’s not something I decided to do consciously. It just…sort of happened because I kept erasing too much, you know? I just steadily starting making things bigger and more cartoony.
When you feel like you’re cutting corners, you’re really not. That’s your own unique style trying to assert itself. You can see the changes in my hands, too, though it’s not as noticeable. Less angles, more suggestive lines I guess.
In the next year, I guarantee that my art will have changed from the most recent of my drawings. Don’t fight it, just let it happen. :3
