1. Introduction: are you tired off teary lessons about art styles? Do you want to take matters into your own hands? Then this is a glass for you. I'm Patricia, a digital artists and online teacher, and I'm here to help you figure out your own art style for the practical and hands on approach. At the end of this class, you're going to have a develop, unique art style. This will be based on the few exercises that will be working throughout videos we'll be covering What exactly is an art style? Deciding what draw? Creating a very inspirational mood wards for your specific tastes as well as stealing. Yes, you heard me, Right, Stealing. But thesis is ethical side of stealing. Trust me. Not only that, but I'll be doing the exact exercises I talk about in the glass along with you. This isn't a theory class. You're here to learn, but also to improve your own art right away. Style is something that is constantly changing your life but that our waste breakfast and develop it much bigger isn't just waiting for it to come frantically. So if you're ready to get started creating their own unique art style. John n, I will see you in the class 2. What Is An Art Style?: Hello and welcome. Now, before we start, we first need to know what exactly is out. Style and art style is a mix off your whole skill set as an artist, your inspirations and the solutions you find to the problems you in concert as you drop. This means that it is something that is constantly changing as you improve. So there's your style and at work. What inspires you also changes, and you find new in different ways to do things are our style is ever changing, and we might notice those changes more easily than the people around us now, even though the things that inspire as my change some off those stick towards more than others. For example, many artists love the business style and keep referencing it for their own work and art style. So it's always good to find new works and artists to help ourselves get inspired. And remember, even if you're looking into developing your own arse, l it's important to focus on learning the basics of drawing as well. When there's one last thing that I want to talk about in his radio, you already have your own at style. Yes, it's true. No one draws like you do. We all have always of trying, so each person as their unique style. It just needs some refinement. You probably can't quite recognize your own style yet, but it's only because you're the one doing the work and it's completely normal. Chess is. Are your friends or followers that see your art can recognize it more easily. All right, now we're done with our theory videos for this class, I promise you. And from now on, we're getting into the practical side of it. I'm going to be doing these exercises along with you, so I will see you in the next video. 3. Deciding What To Draw: all right. Hello, and welcome back. Now, before choosing or understanding what kind of our style we want tohave. It is important to decide what you want to draw, because in bending on what you're drawing, your style is going to be different or is going to adapt itself into what you're drawing. So what do you want to draw? Do you want to draw characters? Do you want to draw maybe environments and different sceneries? Do you prefer toe just row forwards or trees, for example, or even animals? So try to decides what do you want and then practice developing your art style based on that? So, for example, in my case, I draw mine early characters. Sometimes I like to draw some backgrounds going with it. But what I really like to do and to the most is drawing characters are like creating my own characters. And so I developed my out style based on that. And when you're learning to draw these things that she wants, for example, here, we're going to be basing this in characters. Be sure to find some references like a happier So let's say you want to draw people as well one thing you can do, especially at the beginning when you're still learning, ends honestly at all times. Whenever you're having some difficulty with oppose our just trying to understand how to draw on arm or something like that, do find some references, and then you can always low Europe ass ity here bits andro shapes on top, just like these simple shapes. Now I've simplified them a little bit more. For example, I very rarely used the lines to show where the legs and arms are. I usually just use the shapes because I find it's easier. But maybe if just shapes are a bit hard right now, then maybe just draw these lines here. You can also just draw, for example, the line of action that goes right here that we go. This is our posts here because all over this way find different ways to I understand better house or draw something for me. It's always shapes. I think that shapes really help, and then from there we can draw our character. So let's say maybe I will draw this one. I'm going to hide this and create here a mask so because we don't need the other ones. And now I'm going to be drawing this post and the character very quickly in my own odd style. So the style that are currently use. And then from then we're going to try and develop it a little bit more So going to grab here, my pants Ooh, make it a bit darker And now I can start drawing my character. I might also just need to look at the pose from time to time. So she is looking straight at a straight at the camera. So see, these are the shapes I was talking about. Just go over here and them address shapes for the whole thing. The shape here for the arm and now the legs are the same. So shape here, foot. And this leg goes a bit to the outside, right? So I'm not a shape here, and there we go and that we know that this hand goes over here and this one goes on the front, right? She does appear yet the arm is in front off the rest of the poly. There we go. So we do have the the body mostly built just changing here a little bit because It's not right, competent, right? So now we need to create the rest of the character like some clothes in the hair style rides. So let's do that. Let's keep maybe that sporting look to her. I usually have longer necks, so I want to do that now, when we Unless you really want to have a very realistic style, sometimes we don't want to draw exactly what we see. What we want is to take that and apply to our style. I have a very cartoonish style, and so I'm usually not. I don't want for things to look very realistic and exactly like they are in real life. Now, how about hair? What do you want for hair? Think we want something, but it's simple like this. All right, so now I can do my final ones for this one, and then we're ready to work on it. So for this video or at the end of this video, I want you to go look for some reference. If you want to draw character, then do look for some people. Some poses with the style you have right now, just like I'm doing here. I'm doing my usual thing, My usual process. So you have already something ready for the next exercise that we're going to do now I have here my sketch done. I'm going to add some conspiracy here. I can hide this one now, and I'm going to create a vector layer on top, my pen brush, and now I can do the final lines for the skeletal. Now, the reason I use the the vector layer here is because I want to be able to change my lines if I need to, without losing any quality to them, I'm going to be very sketchy with this. I'm not looking for something super perfect right now. I'm just going to change here. It's her top a little bit. Remember this. Always time to change your mind on things when drawing. If you're not happy about something and your your final lines or your painting as you go, feel free to change the things that you don't like. You can always change your mind. Our goal here isn't exactly two. Learn how to draw. We have other business for that. Here we have another other classes if you want to get better at drawing the female body, for example. I do have female or even my body. I have a whole class about it, So feel free to check that out. If you want to get better at that, I sometimes tend to be very sketchy with the hands and that is something there I want for them. But that is something that I want to work here in this example is the hands I want to work on. The way I draw hands. That's one thing I want to develop with my style here. But we're going to talk about that later on. So don't worry about that just yet. Just focus right now on creating our character or if you want to draw animals, maybe draw a dog or a squirrel, a bunny, whatever. You want to get better ads or you want to draw the most. So you have something ready to do later on on toe, work on later on. So we're almost done here just missing here. The face If you follow me on instagram, even Twitter, you know that I would really like to draw around eyes, better round eyes and sometimes even bigger than then in here and being very calm with my eyes here because I usually make the eyes way bigger for me. The eyes. I think it's the one off the most noticeable, not civil things in my art style. All right, so here it is, a character in my most recent art style. I go very culturally. We did so I tried to use as many shapes as possible. And in the next video, we're going to start working on developing the current style to something else so that the kind of process that we usedto find the outs are on our style and work out on it. So this is it for now, remember, create your character, or if you want to draw a flower or an animal, do that right now, you can find some references, learn, damn, learned, opposes and draw it, just like you usually do right now with the style you have right now, even if you think you don't have a style like I said before, you do have it. You just think you don't, but you do have your own style. Nobody draws like you, so draw. It's like usually do right now, and we're going to be using that for the following videos. So follow me to the next video. We're going to be talking about mood boards and inspirations, so let's go over there. 4. Creating A Mood Board: Hello and welcome back. Now in this video, we're going to be talking about mood boards, so we're not going to be drawing this time. But we're going to be creating a mood board for our own are still not. You might already be a bit familiar with mood boards. For example. I always creating would board when I want to create a new character. This will help me get a better feeling off how I want my character to look. What do they like? And what do they do, for example? So as you can see here, for example, this character she likes toe collect flowers, Perhaps she has very curly hair and white hair, some loose pans. Her I one of her eyes might be a little bit difference, and that's why she wears the I Bet show. As you can see, almost everything translates into the drawing. And even if some things are not as queer, So, for example, here I have the tarot cards, I have some, which is things here. Maybe if you look at her first, you wouldn't say she's a witch, but I do know that about her, and I do try to show that true other things, like her clothes or maybe her markings on her face. Things like that. And it is very helpful to create a mood board when you're creating something this needs on Lee to be for characters, for example, integrating a story you might want toe create a mood board for your world, how the world feels if it's more modern. If it's futuristic, if it's a fantasy world, so you might want to try and find photos and images that will help you with that. Even if your want, you just dio very complex illustrations. So you have backgrounds. You have characters. You have a lot of elements in it. You might also want to create a mood board, for example, for the color what color schemes you want to use. Net piece. You might want those images on your mood board to be references for the things you're trying. So let's say I want to draw ire. Not like a scenery. The background is a tiny village with some mountains, and there's a character riding a bicycle. So maybe that case, I would want to have a bicycle so I can have a reference for it so I can look at it and know how to draw it. Maybe I want to look for pictures or villages for simple these days, even though I'm not trying the background, I know that my character leaves in the forest beads, close it, so be it far away from the people. And these things are things that I know about my character. And if I want to draw something that shows a bit more story and with background, these things here are here to help me into use as reference. Anderson goes for art style so it can be very helpful to make a mood board off the things you like and that you can inspire to create your own our style. So I have here this template, so this will be available for you to download, so it's just unload this. You can open it in any software of your choice and right on top of it. Or you can print it out, print out the things that you like and put it in this squares. So the things I want you to look up for our tree of your favorite artists. Now I know maybe you like saying 2100 artists and I also have a lot of artists that I love . But there might be some that are more important to you than others. So choose tree of those grab it image that translates very well. There are style and put it on each off the squares, then just right below What artists is that the name off the artist. So, for example, for me, I have here the sorry wrongly. So for me, I thought about choosing artists that marked me more true out my child. So I chose Billy Waterson from he wrote and true government jobs. You might not know this comics. They're very well known and I really like the comics. I read them a lot while growing up, and I really like the ourself. It's very simple, but also very emotive. Next I have Sillerman. So if you grew up in the 90 Sailor Moon is probably a great inspiration for you, especially if you're a girl. But also for boys. Honestly s a Salem owned by now Loco Taco, was she? I hope I'm I'm reading this right? I'm not sure, but yes, Silman was a very inspiring cartoon from me at the time. I would love to watch it. I would watch it all the time. I mean, so there were girls, and at the same time they were kind of warriors and heroes fighting against evil. And the whole ourselves is beautiful, both in the Munger and on the animal. There they're gorgeous. The drawings and the character designer Gorgeous D animation is amazing. And yes, of course, as a kid, I would draw a lot off Sillerman because I liked the drawings. And my last one is Tim Burton. So for a long time, I would watch his movies over and over and over again, especially nightmare before Christmas. And what I like about his drawings is how the contrast in the drawings. So you have, like, a torso here that is rather big. But then the arms are very thing that almost just like Luns, then they have really huge hands. The head here is a circle, and then you have a very thin neck going from the heads of torso that you can't almost see . So obviously there's all his differences in whites that I really like the style and you can see this wrote many of his movies. For example, even if Ed Verses of Hands is a movie with people there, some concept arts, and it has the same feeling. Corpses Bride is also a bit off the same. You have very thin limbs, like the arms and the legs are very thin, very round head with very big and round eyes, and I really like those differences in weight. So these are the artists I chose for this class, and we're going to be working with this. But that's for later. Now let's see the bottom part off our templates here. Now these are a bit more about the inspiration than to use directly on your art style. So we just three artists. And now I want you to pick immediate something from media. So a favorite movie, a cartoon, a book, some Mangus and comic books, whatever you want. But it must be something that you watched or read and that it talk to you. So, for example, in my case, I chose Dragonball. Now I've probably Mission Dragonball and the artist a lot of times on my classes, because honestly, it was probably the thing that most inspired me. I really like the style. I have some art books at home, and it's the thing that I always go back to whenever I'm not sure what drove anymore. And I liked to make studies off those. So I started watching Dragonball very young, and sometimes I still watch it. So it is something that I think maids, quite a mark in me and my art style might be very connected with that, even if it's not directly. So do choose something that inspires you and that you enjoy and that you feel that to take a lot inspiration from it. And next is a photo. Just choose. Afford that we might be something that you took. It might be something that you found on the Internet. What matters is that something that you like? So it could be a favorite place, an object, maybe foods an animal, whatever makes you happy. So in my case, I chose here a photo of nature not you might have noticed. For example, let me show you here very quickly. In all these characters, there's one thing in common. There's lecturing them. So here you have here the house in the middle of the forest is a forest here. There's some plants inside the house. The next character, the same thing. She likes to collect flowers and to keep them and to write about them, maybe even draw them. And even in my third character here, I have a room here, flute full off plans. So nature for me is something that I always end up incorporating in my characters, even if sometimes it's not really conscious. I always like my characters to be connected with nature, and that's the reason why I want you to put here a photo off something you really like, because these things, the things that you like are things that you're going to put in your art almost at all times. Even if it's unconscious, you're going to want to put that into your art because you like to share and show people the things that you like and enjoy doing. So this is it for this video. I want you to just pick up the templates downloaded and choose treat artists such real like that inspire you to not just shoes an artist that you enjoy looking at, but do choose an artist that you want to pick something from it. So, for example, uh, let's see. I really enjoy lush. You might not know lie. She makes amazing art. And it's something that I really like watching, but her art style is not really for me, so I can't really draw the way she does. Nor am I really interested in it. I'm more interested in drawing. Why not doing trying things with more shapes and maybe even a simpler style. So do you think about this when you're choosing your artists, then just shoes, a movie, a cultural on the book, wherever you want to be so meaty that you really enjoy. And finally, a photo off something that you like. This is really important because it will guide you a little bit in tow. What you want to do as an artist. So do this. Take your time and next we're going to talk about stealing. Yeah, Weird. Right. So do your templates and follow me to the next Feed you and I'll see you there. Bye bye. 5. Steal Like An Artist: all right. Hello and welcome. So we are going to draw a little bit now, but above all, we're going to still? Yes. You heard me, Rights. We're going to steal. But like an artist now, what do I mean by that? I usually when we're starting, we're trying to find our own art style. We usually pick up things that we like from our favorite artists. And we'll try to use that in our own art. And this is pretty much okay, so don't be afraid to do this. This is basically the way that everyone learns. And maybe sometimes with his experiments, you want really used all of it in the future. But it's a good way off learning, for example, for a lot of time. I really enjoyed looking at Alia. Question AUVs Art is also a very big artist. I remember that. I really like how we drew ice. Still, for some time I would try to draw the eye like he did. I will also try to incorporate some things in Is in my art like the blood he uses a bit off blur on his pieces. And I tried to do that as well and today I don't do it anymore. But it's still thought me a lot. So, for example, taught me that after all, this is not really what I want to do. I want to go for something more cartoony. So this is a good way for you to figure out yourself. So what we're going to be doing right now is look up to the tree artist at which shows and pick something from its Androids. So, for example, with Bill Watterson, I really like how it draws. Hence, I really like the way the hands are drawn. They're very simple, and one of the things I really enjoy is that there's just four fingers not only for the tiger, but for the human characters as well. So I really want to do that. I'm always joking about this deads when drawing hand. It's very easy to draw the four fingers and then just feels like there's one finger that's just too much, and I can't draw it. I was make fun of that, so I thought, Well, you know what? I'm going to draw some Bill Watterson hands, So just four fingers. Let's remove one off the fingers so We don't need to. It's much less trouble that way. So he has a line going here. Sorry. The fingers are a Pedes shabbier and shorter. Right? So this is just a little bit off practice. You don't have to worry a lot about this, but there we go. We have here some Bill Waterson hands. So this is what I'm going to pick from him. It's the hand house. Simple. They are really ensure the way they they're drawn. And of course, when you're doing this, feel free to add your own twist. Wits. You don't really need to exactly Kobe something. You can take the idea from it and adds your own flavor to it. That truly important. So okay, we have here one hands. This is what I want from this artist next from Sailor Moon. Something I really ensure is the way the eyes are drunk. They have a lot of shyness to them. They're very big. I usually already draw the eyes really big as we talked about before, But let's try to add more detail to them like we see here. So you know that I goes something like this and then the very big right, Let's feel it's but then they have a lot of shining. So let's see how we're going to do this. We have one here and he had a here. All right, so there we go. Also, we have some my bro's going on, but something like this. So as you can see, it's not an exact copy off Silverman's eyes here, but it's very same similar. I took it and made it my own right, and I'll finally we have Tim Burton's. So I talked about what I would really like about his style is the differences avoids between different parts of the body. Right, So you have a very thin neg, 18 arms, and then you have a bigger torso and the head is round right, so this is something I want to pick up. So, for example, I do want to the hat, too. I had to be browned as usual. I always draw very round heads, right. I usually also tend to draw very long next. So this is this is kind of perfect. I'm just trying the body very loosely here, so this guy's I want the legs to be any teen as well as the arms that this is going to be very hard for me because I'm not really used to drawing things that thing. So this is going to be a very good exercise. So this is what I want the thin leaves, thin limbs and thing, Nick. So this is what we want to do this time. Pick up the things that you like from your artists off resemble. If you print it. This templates feel free to cut out the things that you want to learn and be better at. So, for example, if it's to the hands, you can glue it to your sketchbook, for example, or if you're doing this digitally, you can just cut out the speed putting a here on the side and draw it. So just focus on those things that you want to do, and you want to incorporate in your ourselves and draw them. You can do more than one drawing. Just practice as much as you want. Feel this sketchbook bridge We did until you're happy with the results. And then we can go for the next stage. Remember, you're not exactly coping, but you're taking these things that you like about artists and make it your own. You're not coping the exact art style that you're looking at your just taking some things from it and incorporating it into your own on style. OK, so don't feel bad about doing this. This is a very normal process. And even natural, you might have been doing this process for a long time. When you're learning, I'm sure you've probably already tried to Kobe styles that you like. For example, while growing up, I would draw a lot of put him on, and I will draw the Pokemon exactly as I saw them. So this is a very normal process, and this is a way for you to develop your own arse. L so don't be afraid to do it. Okay? Just pick up the things that you like from your artists and draw them. And now on our next video, we're going Teoh, pick all of this thing. So for me, it's going to be the hands, the eyes and finally the very thin limbs. And we're going to pick up the character we first true and mix everything and make one new drawing in a new art style. OK, so feel free to take us much time as you want in this. And I will see you and the next video. Bye bye. 6. Assignment - Let's Mix It Up!: all right, welcome back. And now it's time for our biggest assignments were going to pick up the first thing we drew . Apply the new things that which shows from the other artists. And then we're going to create something new with it. So we're going to be creating basically our own Frankenstein monster. So let's do this. Let's start with the sketch. So from Tim Burton, we talked about those were proportions that he uses, right? So let's start with that. Going to drop everything legs here very thin. Us now the head, though I'm not really offense. So that's blue. Something else here, something a bit similar to what we have first trying. All we're missing is the eyes right? Shine use to the eyes so we don't forget about them. It's okay. We have something here. We have quite some contrasts in the character here that the big proportional. She's a very talk character. Now let's try into a more detailed sketch. Now Judea, here is that to you embrace things from your own style while picking up something from other people were not here trying to just forget everything about our own style and prayed something entirely new. Now what we want to do here is to embrace her own style and try to develop it by learning with others. This is very much our goal here. I don't want you guys to just forget about your style about the things that you usually do . I'm sure there are things in your cell that you enjoy. What I want, however, is for you to just learn from other artists and apply those things that you learn and that you like into your work. This is the whole goal off this class. All right. So you see, I picked up that idea off the proportion from Tim Burton style, but made it my own. So I created something that is my own thing. So I picked up the proportion from Tim Burton style and made it my own. So if you look at this, at least I don't think he would look at this and think, Oh, this is very Tim Burton. It's not I don't think it is. But I did look at how he does his things, how he he breaks all this rules off proportion off body proportion. And I had adapted that into my own style. So we have here a sketch a bit more detailed. The eyes, as you can see it made them a little bit. You'd see more cute. Sedin what I usually do. I can maybe try and changed use a little bit as well make it a bit more similar to what I usually do, but still taking that idea from Silin. One mostly what I'm taking from the Salem one style. I think it's the Chinese. I already draw my eyes very ready rounds and going a bit, too, the cute seaside as well. But now I'm adding more shiny to eat, more cute to the eyes, and that's what I wants. What sorry and funny with the hands round hands and small, not very big and with just four fingers. So let's do now the final lines for this one. So as you can see just from the sketch, we already have something quite. It's different. For example, I'm foot focusing more on basics shapes here. I think my style In general, I always use very basic shapes at the beginning, but here those shapes are translating into the final, drawing the bit more at least now again, I'm drunk driving a character here, but you don't need Teoh. You can do this when drawing animals. When drawing environments anything you want, the process is basically the same. We choose favorites artists would choose. We look up to the things that we like. That's why we did the whole mood board. That mood board can work with any kind off art that you're doing. So just look up artist that you enjoy. Look up pieces off, mediated to like and that inspire you and use those to your advantage. Use those in the future for your own art style, for example. We're not very directly using Dragonball here, but I always I think, that the way I drew draw hair really came from Dragon Ball. It's very if you notice the hair the way a kill it, Auriemma draws the hair is very all about the shapes, so if the hair is curly, he is going to draw. For example, have your character rights face years also the years of very round in big years and for example, in Dragonball, you might notice that for simple cancers with curly hair, the hair really goes very round and if they have straight hair, the hair goes very straight. They don't have it is what it is. And, for example, that is something that I think I picked up from there and I still use. Now there's in my style, so the hair and the years, even though it's very it's not very direct. I think I did pick it up from Dragon Ball, and we're not really using those ones in disguise. I think just using the artists that you chose is enough for now, and it's mostly so. It's not too overwhelming for you. I want you to look at your mood boards toe. Look at the artists it shows. Pick up some things from your those artists, but I also want you to pay attention to the other two things that you chose pieces of media and photo off something you like and help that into attention when you're drawing something because you'll notice that even in cautiously, you're going to draw those things. That's where I will try something from there. Also feel free to post your mood board when you're finished with the Class I, or even when you finish your mood board you can post a mood board, you might from templates, so I can also see what inspires you while is like to see what inspires people because we all have very different inspirations. We don't with watch different things. We like different things, and that's more than natural. And also the artist who'd shows they don't need to be artists from cartoons or from comic books or mangos. It can be artist that you follow on social media. A lot of times those are the artists that we most admire and get inspiration from. And remember, we're not coping it. We're referencing professional artists. We're learning from them. This is very important distinction because one thing is to really pick a piece of art from someone else and drawing exactly the same and then posting and saying, Hey, this is mine when it isn't But take inspiration from them. Learning from them is a whole other thing. Like I said, if you see this drawing, you wouldn't say that. Oh, this is from, uh, Tim Burton. Oh, this is very sailor morning. It's not. Look at this. It has nothing to do with any of those artists. It's very different But I did look at them. I pick up things that I like, and I tried to adapt those into my own art style. And this is what we end up words. Look at it. It's very different from the first trying with it, you see, So the 1st 1 my first art style that I started with with all about Kurt shapes and curved lines. And here it's a bit more the proportion and straight lines if you notice there's a lot of strange shapes in here, and I really enjoy those. I really like how straight the legs are here, this very big gap between the legs that obviously not realistic at all. But I like how it looks. I like the style that it used to the character. So this is also a lot about experimentation. You can pick this things. You picked one thing from each artists, and now you're trying to mix everything up. But this a lot of options here does not just one option. Maybe I could have tried to just draw very thin arms and the rest of the body, but more proportional, for example, I've could have drew the eyes much bigger if you noticed in sailing one, and they'll in a lot of animal, especially from the nineties. It's like the eyes occupy almost 90% off the face, and I could have played with that. I could have just it saturates the size off the eyes, make it much bigger. Eso When you're doing this exercises, remember to experiment. Don't just stay with the first thing you do. Try other options. Play with everything with your own style, with things such picked from other artists. Maybe you decided, Oh, I really like how the healthiest artist rose their hands, but maybe when you're drawing, you realize that you really don't want to do that in your art style. You don't want to add in your AR style, and that's fine. So pick something else from that artist. Look for someone else because sometimes we look at artists and we think we want to do that , and we actually don't. It's a very different thing, toe like a style and wanting to do that kind of style that even though I draw in this style or and you don't need to have one style, because if you notice if you see my art on social media, my arse. L has nothing to do with this. This is the thing that I do. It's more sketch. It's a quick style. So when you're watching my classes, you don't get bored with me drawing for like, three hours and the things I do usually for social media and to show to you all of my followers. It's very different that it's something that I take much longer, and it's a bit of a different style, so it's okay to have more than one. Don't worry too much about our style. You'll get there. And remember, you're always changing so to the assignment. Don't forget, so you should root. Draw something at the beginning with your current art style, Then create your own mood board for your art style and finally mix everything up. So pick up the first trying death, the things that you chose from your favorite artists and mix everything up and create your own Frankenstein monster. I can't wait to see your projects and just follow me to the next video, where we're going to just go through some final thoughts. Thank you so much. See you in the next video 7. Final Thoughts: and that's it's congratulations. You finished the class. I hope this helps improve your on our style and helped you in your path. Remember, at the end of this video, not supposed to have a final art style were always changing, and outsell would change with you as well. The thing is, as you improve, those changes will be a bit more subtle. So do have fun. If you're just starting to dry and realize you're on our style, take your time to experiment with a lot of things. Don't be afraid to do that. You don't need to stick with the thing that you came up with right now. Maybe you stick with some things and others you just move on from them. There's always a lot of trial and error heart when trying for drawing and trying to understand our on our style. So keep experimenting and having fun with this, and also remember to keep working on your art fundamental that's well sees. That will give you a big push on your artwork and style practice, just drawing and left me lighting perspective and so on. All those things will help him profess an artist and before even focusing on our style, I would say to focus on the basics and work on your AR style as you go. The ourselves isn't the most important thing when drawing, But it can be really fun to find your own style. So have fun with that. Okay, so you keep focusing on the specific parts you want to improve and go for it. Have fun with learning. Have fun creating your own style. You've got this. I believe in you. And as always, I appreciate it. If you can leave me review, it really helps me keep going. And remember, feel free to share your Simon to. I always look forward to seeing what you can come up with and all the different ourselves that you guys can do and remember, keep on trying.
