I still remember the other day when this anon came to me saying that it was very hard to describe my art style because I always draw everything in their respective official styles.
I felt a little worried because they may have been right, do I even have my own art style? I mean, usually when Im not drawing fanart, my original art always looks sort of inconsistent.
But what if my style is to mimic other’s styles?
I legit find the entire concept of expecting an artist to have a distinctive style to be rather stupid. I mean, if you wanted a job professionally illustrating for a animation/comic/publishing studio, chances are your “style” wouldn’t matter because you’ll have to follow a model sheet anyway. So the ability to “mimic another artist’s style” would be a plus.
Draw what you want to draw in whatever way you want to draw it. The fact that you’re drawing is all that matters.
