Hello :) Thank you so much! You’ve made my morning :)
My best advice for developing style is hit up yo library. the wider your scope of miscellaneous knowledge the wider your imagination. Never disregard anything that may seem useless to your art, I guarantee you can find a way to pull inspiration from it :) (The only thing I’ve given up on is math, but dammit I tried) Educate yourself and use those findings in your artwork :) Before my junior year of high school I focused a lot on my technical skills by practicing anatomy, life drawing and copying elements from works of art I really liked. Not until my senior year did I really focus on the subject matter of my drawings. I got really into history, short stories, podcasts, comics, obscure films, old films, museums, and most importantly libraries. All of these things have become EXTREMELY handy while writing VOX. Its amazing how people have the feeling of what they want to draw but when it comes down to doing it, what you put on paper never seems the same. Push past that feeling and hit the books. Theres nothing more rewarding than teaching yourself to see in a way you couldn’t before :) I have a quote by Glen Keane hanging above my desk that I look to whenever Im frustrated: “When you come across a problem in animation that you can’t solve, its not because you’re not good enough, its because you’ve reached the limit of your knowledge” And more importantly, dont be afraid to make bad work, just go crazy and draw whatever in your sketchbook all the time and pick the gems out later :) Best of luck with your studies! :D
