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

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. mangafox.me/manga/the_breaker/…

ALL OF THE ABOVE.

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.

I nab bits and pieces of all the styles I like and turn it into a style that is all my own, haha
