Developing a signature style

Developing a signature style - student project

I've been struggling with a consistent style for years, looking for a style that can easily be identified as mine. Only recently I've started to see some similarities in my work, and I feel more confident. I start to feel like I can rely on my skill more than usual.

The words I used to describe my style are: girls, portrait, soft outline (non-black), colourful, alternative fashion and beauty, flat, stylised, dynamic, texture, mysterious.

Not all words apply to the illustrations shown above, and I think it has to do with a shift in my style. I've included older work down below. I feel like I'm between static and dynamic, and I don't think the 'mysteriousness' is always visible.
