My style is made out of various elements.

1) Trying to learn drawing as myself, by improving techniques from books and from my own sensibility.

2) Sure anime and my preferred artists play an important role in my art. Sometimes I try to imitate their style to check if I am good at that tecnique.

3) Experimenting

4) Pratice, pratice, pratice...

And sure my efforts are not all in-vain as you can judge from this artwork:

Style develops when you deviate from the norm. Veer away from what you were taught to do. When you allow yourself imperfections.

Most people will say anime realism but I'm in the 33% category

I try to be realistic, a realism artist. I first started out by drawing from other pictures, getting books on how to draw stuff, then adapting the style to my own. I got into manga for a while, but then stopped because i got bored with it. My style is in the process of changing, as i am getting bored with it.

Final fantasy, Heise and anime <_< but then I saw Artgerm, and Sakimichan, and so I started to draw from life, so I prefer the semi-realistic painterly feel.

Combination of Realism + favorite manga/comic artists. Ever read the breaker? I think you'd like it. Like, a lot. B-E-A-Utiful art, wonderful action scenes, roller-coaster in some cases emotionally. Gorgeous.…

I'm not really sure if my style is what you could even call a "style" :P It changes to suit the drawing and the character or my mood, even. But yes, I think I do have a certain "style" in every drawing I do, even if I change the way I draw every time.

I used to try basing it off my favourite artist, and if you look REALLY closely at my drawings you might just be able to see that the way I draw certain features have been influenced by them (but not copied), but in the end my style is my own, and it could never look like another artist's.

From Favorite Artists. I tried on Realism, but much to my dismay, I kind of, eh. Failed xD It was advantage though.
I developed from Anime, Character designs and such. But Im willing to go on Realism again.

LordTchernobog Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
My style is directly originated from the Once upo a Time... animated television series; especially from the Man, Spane and Life series'. Bloody seriously; but I changed the eyes into a simple dot or a little oval, and made a lot of eye variant. (mostly for females)

When the first time I decided to draw a woman I realised... I can't draw a female human body(!). But... i figured out, but looked horrible. After winning the 1st place ina comic drawing/writing competiton, I got a bad cough and got cold. I was in bed, and surfing on the internet (instead of relaxing xD); and that time I found a picture about Psi (the girl from the mentioned series above) on Deviantart, and something went through my mind: I know her. From my childhood... i googled after her, and another realise made a point: when i was a child, i always want to draw her, but I was too young an untalented ;-; and forget her for a time. Then I watched the Space series again, and started to draw Psi. I think she’s a pretty girl ^-^ then she wa the main base for my future female character, but tried something else. Their head’s shape became different and their eyes too. One character is almost 100% based around her. They share the same hair color and style, has a nice circum face :3. differences are the skin and eyes.

So, Psi is the „mother” of my female characters, even I drew females, but those weren’t look like women :/ My style is basicly based on a French animated television series; but only the first three, because from the 4th, it starts to change a lot (example: Psi sometimes became european skinned, and her headshape changes :/ ). The series belongs to Albert Barillé, the desing to Jean Barbaud 

Music helped, and I have chronic depression. So it came from both of those things. My first creation was this thing called Troy, yeah. I think for awhile, I used them as something to describe myself. They were linked to me in some way. Troy was usually anger, hate, ect. Then there was Raem. She was usually suicide. My main character, well she had many names, because people always told me she way stupid. She had all sorts of problems. She describe me. And Troy and Raem were inside her head all the time. Well yeah. .-.

iixRainexii Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012
I just kind of drew.... first I tried to be realistic, and then once I understood realism a little better, I was more liberal with what I created. Also, my tablet drawings have a certain style to them....... though that's just because I played around until I found something that looked half decent when I coloured it in. :P
Toyai Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
it just developed as i kept drawing. i mean it was definitely influenced by anime/manga/video games but otherwise it just kind of happened this way.

Actually I am still in the process of developing my style, it's crap for now, so that's why I haven't posted works in years and I am developing my style based on many many influences like my fav manga artists, deviantart artists, what I like to draw,my fav tv show and what I want my art to represent
CitricRainbow Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
I go through phases of become really in love with one artist and I use them as my main inspiration for 3-4 pieces then I fine someone new, repeat. Each time I go onto a new artist a still retain something I liked for the old on that inspired me, and they all meld together to make, my style.

I try to go from realism.
Which also includes other artists' styles, because I just like being able to replicate something I see in front of my eyes.
I really don't think I have my own style.

I don't have a style, I don't really think anyone could put a name on my art when they come across it.
I don't derive my style from others, I just pick stuff up randomly- try things out. Sometimes abstract, sometimes realisme. It depends on my mood really. I relay how 'I' see a character (I draw fanart) and put MY emotion in it.
Living-Magikally Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a great mixture of things. When I was little I was really influenced by Disney and what little anime/manga I'd seen, and then I got to the internet and started seeing so much from viria and burdge and palnk, and now I've found I like staring at people during class to get my anatomy down.

My end goal is for realism; however, I've developed my style over time slowly, working from a more cartoony style upwards.
Ara-la Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012
As for me, I used to be strongly influenced by manga (especially Bleach, at least some years back). About a year ago I started to draw realistic style every now and then, and I think my style now is a somewhat of a mix of the two.
Also, my style is affected by my mood and motivation (and by what I want to draw, different styles fit differents pictures). 8D
