Art Advice Issue #5 - How to Find your Own Style
By far the most common concern I see people on DA mention is, "I wish I had my own style / How can I get my own style?" Hardly a week goes by when I don't see different people saying this. Because of this, I decided to write this article with some tips people may find useful, when searching for a style to call their own. This is what I did, ten years ago, when I was trying to find my own manga style; and I've mentioned this method to some other people and they found it informative and useful as well, so I'm sharing it with you all.
The first part of this article will talk about what is included in what we call "style" (did you know personal style is also found in realism?) and the reasons behind common stylizations (as commonly seen in anime and manga).

Control Freak...This is what you want, isn’t it?
I see it all the time from you
Your lust for power, your desire for control
Your need to be in charge of everyone
It’s everywhere. In everything you do.
Your true colors shine bright… but they’re blinding.
They block out common sense, destroy rational thought
Destroying everything… and leaving only you.
You stand in the spotlight, everyone else under your spell
“Come to me!” You cry. “And I will share my power with you!”
You watch with a grin as they all come running
Your eyes scan the crowd, and you choose a victim
“This one!” you yell. “This one will do nicely!”
You look at them, and you work your magic
You twist their desires, bend their minds and their bodies
And you have control. Complete control.
It’s all that you want. It’s all that you crave.
Endless control over everyone around you.
But you can’t let it slip! You’re still being watched.
