Rose and Menat Summer Training
My entry to Udon Entertainment's Street Fighter Swimsuit Special issue. Procrastinated quite a bit with this and didn't do as much as I wanted to, but I'm still happy with how it turned out.

Edit: Made a few improvements to things that were really bothering me. It's past the deadline so I can't submit this version, but I at least feel a bit better about it.

Both Rose and Menat are copyrighted to Capcom.

Starting to get back into drawing and trying to create a profession from it, I'm starting to come back to my dilemma I had of not knowing how to continue my artwork.  I love practicing different styles and techniques, I really do, and I really like that I have a sort of ability to imitate styles if needed.  I've also always envied people with their own personal style, something unique, something that makes it show as their own artwork.  I don't have my own style and I've been struggling to find one that I can call my own that I'm actually happy to stick with.  

I often draw different based on my mood or inspiration.  Do I take the realistic approach, the comic book approach, the manga approach, or the abstract and stylistic approach?  It's tough for me to do many of those and be completely happy with it, but only when it's my own work.  I'll often see other artwork and appreciate the way it was done.  The stupid thing is that I appreciate another work that I am fully capable of replicating myself, yet if I were to do it myself, I would not like it as much.

I guess what I'm trying to get at is to all the people out there that follow me or look at my page, especially those with their own unique style...what do you think?  Do you think it's better to have a set style?  Or better to practice different techniques constantly?  I mean, it's nice to be able to mimic another artist if you were an animator, cause you're required to keep characters on model.  But it's another if you want to stand out.  To those that have their own style, do you ever not feel proud of your style?  Is there ever a time where you considered drawing something in a different technique versus your own?

I hate being stuck in this rut and it really bothers me because it often shows up in my work where I'll mesh different styles and to some it may look fantastic, but to me it doesn't come out as good as I envisioned it...

Of course, I love Jin and Blodia, wish I could make it into the book but my submission was nowhere near the quality level of yours. Guess I'll just have to try harder next time.
