Peony practice by Casdesespere Peony practice by Casdesespere
So...yeah. My personal battle with my personal style once again (personally?:D) continues. To be honest, the entire concept of "having an art style" scares the shit out of me. I admit, there have been some moments when I felt like "yeah, this is it, finally", but then it somehow does not feel right. I am guessing I need more practice and I need to stop stressing about being mature enough, as an artist, to have a style, but – easier said than done. Sorry for the ramble, it is just something that's been bothering me for quite some time.

Anyway, I wanted to do something more delicate than my usual thick lines, so here's a peony-drawing practice! Rose

Thank you! And no worries, I've never been much good at light-hand lineart, there will surely be more thick lines coming in :D (Big Grin)

I love this so much... she's so beautiful and the art is so beautiful... just, this is so stunning!!

And, yeah, I understand that struggle... I feel like that no one has a concrete style though, everyone's art style is forever changing and evolving, but there's still enough resemblance to know it's their's. I don't know if that was very motivational/helpful but I hope it helps a little. Heart

It surely is! Both motivational aaand helpful at the same time, thanks ♥ Also, you are probably right. I can see the style changing and evolving in other's work, I just somehow fail to see any traces of style in mine, which, most likely, just relates to one's critical approach towards his/her own art. I guess. Nevertheless, I am very happy you like this piece :) (Smile)

First off, really beautiful work!  I love it!

Haha!  I have the same problem with my own style!  I always feel like I get to the end, and have a part figured out, then I have to stop and ask "wait . . . does this work, though?"  Haha  XD  Also, I find whenever I figure out one part, there's like a hundred other things I have to fix.  EX:  I'm still trying to figure out how to draw faces straight on with my personal style.

Anyway, you're not alone in the struggling with your personal style!  XD

You would not believe how relieved I feel after hearing the same issue troubles such a talented person with sooo distinct drawing style! I should probably feel bad just for saying so, but I really do :D (Big Grin) And oh my god, yes, I understand – whenever I get too being even moderately alright with some aspect of my work, I notice so much other stuff I need to figure out. It can be a bit overwhelming sometimes, but hey, as long as it leads somewehere... :D (Big Grin)  And I would have never guessed you consider faces to be your "weak spot" – you are just so good at capturing facial expressions, it's mesmerizing. Very minimal and clean, yet you excel at conveying a wonderful set of emotions, it's great!

Hahaha, well the feeling is mutual! Honestly, I think you are super talented, so saying you think I am makes me feel even better! XD

Oh, it's true. It's a never ending cycle. But, like you said, as long as it leads somewhere, what's the harm?

Oh my, thank you so much for saying that! I'm sometimes afraid that my facial expressions aren't what they should be, but you've taken a load off my mind! XD

I have nothing clever to say about style, just informing you that OH MY GOSH IT'S PRETTY!!
Lovely flowers blooming (it looks like) out of her skin, the over-the-shoulder glance, clean lines, great shading... I'll settle down now.
