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).
The second part talks about how an artist arrives at his or her style, and describes a method you can use if you don't want to wait for your style to surface organically ... in other words, if you wa

dA Guide: Text Formatting
This is just a quick text formatting guide for dA. My goal was to make a simple html guide for easy reference.  Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work!  (Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.)  :'D
I provided "working examples," which might make the codes easier to understand because you can see them in action. (Keep in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until AFTER you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible for the purpose of demonstration.) Enjoy!!!

The following codes can be used in
comments, deviation descriptions, journals, and profile page widgets.

This will make bold text.
This will also make bold text.
This will make italicized text.

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Hello! I enjoy creating digital art and hope to slowly improve my skills. Although I almost exclusively post things drawn in my art program of choice, Procreate for iPad, I also dabble in cosplay, crafting, photography, and traditional art. I have posted next to nothing that falls into the latter categories for a multitude of reasons, but perhaps one day I will.

I currently do not take requests, commissions, or art trades. However, I will do collaborations with close friends only.
I’m sorry if this causes any inconvenience. I didn’t think anyone would be interested in this sort of stuff from me since there are far better artists out there, but people have asked so I thought it would be best to clarify things here.

Your welcome. You having a nice day? :) (don't worry about it being late, it's good to hear from you.)
Lengurkur Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, it's been a pretty good day. I should be back to posting something about once a week hopefully soon. I hope things have been going well for you.

Hi Lengurkur! It's been quite a busy week so I haven't been online for long. How are you doing? I managed to get some stuff off my plate since both my children''s picture book and comic draft have been workshopped. It was well-received, which was a relief, but now I have to finalize the drafts.
We also got to read a chapter of Maus in class (chapter 5 in the first book). It was a nice discussion and now I really want to read the rest of the book so I can get to understand it better. Oh, and speaking of reading, I got my hands on the Legendary Edition of the Minish Cap/Phantom Hourglass manga! I'm all pumped up to draw Picori and Ezlo again, and I'll probably be doing so when I have some spare time.
I hope you're doing well with your own classes and hope to chat with you again :)

Don't worry about replying late! I'm just glad to know you're doing better now. I wish you a speedier recovery!
I've heard about Steins;Gate but haven't watched it before. I knew there was an anime, but I've only heard about the visual novel now. It still surprises me how a lot of franchises have a multimedia approach nowadays - but it's pretty cool to see how adaptations work. Speaking of visual novels, I'm actually wondering whether I should try out Doki Doki Literature Club since it's free and all, but I've been spoiled on pretty much everything by the Internet :/ I have a lot of friends who are fans of visual novel type games, but I keep forgetting their recommendations for starters lol.

I'm doing pretty good! The semester is nearly over, and I'm both excited about winter break and sad because I have really been enjoying this semester and almost don't want it to end. That's great to hear your drafts have been accepted! Best of luck on them.
I still have Maus sitting right next to where I draw, but I haven't cracked it open yet. I may do that later today, actually. I've got to get some housework done first, but I've been procrastinating on reading it long enough! That's so exciting! I wish I could have gotten the Legendary Editions, but I purchased the box set a few years ago. It's definitely nice, but the color pages and larger trim size of the Legendary Editions makes me want to somehow exchange my box set for them.
I hope you're doing well too! Do you think you'll post your comic on DeviantArt once you finish it?

I'm glad to hear you've had such an enjoyable semester then! We actually have less than 3 weeks ourselves before Christmas break. Still a lot of deadlines before then though, so it would be a relief to reach our break.
I hope to at least watch Over the Garden Wall when the break comes. I'm also planning to buy the last book in the ToddHunter Moon series, so I have a few things to catch up to myself after this sem. I'm not sure if Maus can be considered happy reading, but it's certainly very interesting and I particularly like how Spiegelman also talks about writing comics. I won't say anything more so I won't spoil you.
I actually saw the A Link to the Past legendary edition as well and I was wondering if I should buy it before the sem ends. The color pages is really tempting, and I like the extra character illustrations. But I also have my eye on the Spirited Away art book…hmmm.
Btw, I got my Miiverse post history yesterday, and it was fun scrolling through it. It's a shame the comments weren't included though, but it was nice. I haven't checked in with the Miiverse discors server, so I'm not sure if everyone's received theirs yet.
About my comic, I was hoping to work on it even if it's just rough drafts over the break. Not sure if I'll be able to do it by myself, but it would help me push my limits and I'd like to receive more feedback on it!

I hope you enjoy Over the Garden Wall! I don't know if I'm familiar with the ToddHunter Moon series. I started Maus and it is quite deep and really fascinating. I'm pretty sucked into it. I also find it interesting how he discusses writing comics.
That sounds like a tough decision... I know you've had your eye on that Spirited Away art book for quite some time now... Well, whichever you decide to go for, I know you'll enjoy it.
I'm bummed about not being able to see the comments as well, but I'm glad we at least get to save our posts! Oh, you're on the Miiverse discord server? The Miiiverse Hangouts one? I didn't know! I'm on there as well. I know a few people have gotten their post history and have shared some of their posts in the Miiverse Memories Community.
Best of luck on your comic drafts!
