You sometimes make me think of some kings of the late Art Nouveau, with your curves and colours (not to mention the fact that women were one of their top 3 inspirations ). Like Aubrey Beardsley. A bit. I love that But there's way more than that, and your style (well the one you seem to use the most) is really hard to define; I see a lot of influences in it, and as an (apprentice) art historian, it's really some awesome stuff to watch I love it, that's all XD
First off, I am really, really sorry for the late comment. Life stressors and all have sort of made it hard for me to stay in touch with folks on dA and I'm just finally getting back into the swing of things. I hope you didn't think that I've abandoned you or anything. I'm just taking my time to sort through my messages, which are about 8-10 pages deep right now XD
I am really, really happy that you think that And I'm glad you like my style! Many people have said it's hard to pinpoint my style because it's such a blend of things, but I think it's really fascinating to see what people think! I also looked into the artist you described, and i think I could see a few pieces which could resemble my art c: Anyway... your comment made me really, really happy
Aww, don't worry I was really happy to find some messages from you when I logged in and I totally understand that you took some time with your messages too (though I can't say I know what it's like to have eight pages of messages, there's not enough fame for everyone I guess XD just kidding though) Haha, I find it looks quite adorable, really... sweet in fact it also sometimes happens that I don't like someone's style (though it's pretty rare but there are things I don't like, for sure), but I still find it awesome then, because the fact I don't like it means it's not a random, irrelevant one, and so it's cool Haha, maybe it's hard to see some links (now that I've tried afterwards it's not as clear as it could seem when I said it at first), but I'd be one to restlessly tell you that Beardsley should be a model for everyone Awww, I'm so glad to hear it it's really good to know that I made you happy :3
Awww you're too sweet! Yeah, I had some issues in my life as well which prevented me from replying to people on dA right away, but it's been taken care of, and I'm feeling a lot healthier c: (Haha, tbh I would have said the same thing years ago! XD A lot of my messages is just because I talk a lot though )
I think everyone is like that tbh! It's a matter of personal taste... I personally like a wide variety of styles, but tend to be less into the more suggestive, boob-showing styles if you get what I mean XD I like diverse, cutesy styles generally c: There's a style for everyone, really XD
Indeed! A lot of the ancient artists are super inspiring. Although I'm generally more of a modern day enthusiast, I can still appreciate the artists in our history, especially given that they spend years completing some of their works. The modern day artist only spends like... what? Maybe one day on their art? XDDD
That's because of you Glad to hear that you're alright I hope it won't change for a long while haha no problem with the talking, I'm a royal chatting box myself
There are a lot of things I like but there's also a lot I'd like to try myself hopefully I can gain enough skill to do as I please one day xD but you're definitely right, there's a style for everyone
Years, yes, you're right, I've been writing/creating my beloved book for seven years now, don't know if that counts XD Tolkien (gosh, Tolkien...) started creating The Silmarilion in his twenties and he died without having finished it (same goes for Michelangelo's Tomb of Julius II, except he was older, speaking about ancient artists XDD) these people are definitely people to look up to, just because how hard they could work when it was about their art ... Yeah I don't know about you but I never spend more than 5 hours on a drawing, I feel so ashamed now XD I have an excuse though, I can't get back to a work I've stopped while unfinished. If I have to go to sleep or to go out in the middle of my drawing then there's no chance I can get back to it afterwards and finish it at all, and it's not convenient XD you digital folks can't understand how I feel X'DDD
Haha hope it sounded fine you're welcome Yes I was hoping nothing wrong had happened to you :3 I hope you're alright now There's no secret trick in anything I think, there's just training . But now I wonder what part does "talent" or "gifted talent" does play in achieving something. I'm way too philosophical I'm afraid, tell me when I have to stop please xD Haha I didn't read up to your "it takes a lot of practice and hard work to get there" when I wrote what lies just above, seems like we do agree a bit awwww, understanding, I've been looking for that :'D glad you know how it feels Oh my pictures are gel ink stuff too! :'D the ones with scars at least
Of course your style is very cool and original in its own way, I love how you take your influences from everywhere and don't try to be anything else if you know what I mean ^.^, I must admit more than once you've made me think of a couple of artists my old fine art teacher once showed me (and have been favourites ever since). You might like them, they get a little Victorian/18th century esque a lot of the time. I was looking at your book cover art with Estelle and Marci and they came to mind ^.^
Have you ever heard of Mark Ryden or Marion Peck? They're kind of chibified/semi-real/childlike (as in their people look mainly like children)/slightly dark/unusually cute/very fairytale Alice in Wonderland ish.....ah, maybe I should just show you. Who knows, sharing art leads to new inspiration ^.^
Word of warning if you go researching though, they can get quite....dark. Mark Ryden is a bit obsessed with meat (but I do love his dark stuff, what can I say, I'm a Goth!) Sorry for another long winded comment! Haha, I thought they might interest you is all ^.^
Sorry for the late reply! I've been super duper busy for a very long time. ;n; Even my friends in RL are being neglected aha;; woops.
Ohhhh thank you <33 I've always wanted a unique style, glad to see I've achieved that! It's very true that I take inspiration from everywhere, so a lot of my own style stems from three different forms of art, somehow blended together to form a: "What-the-heck-art-form-is-this" feel I know a lot of different styles, so I could do anime and semi realism (especially with more practice) if I wanted, just as I could chibi or cartoon, or even pixel art. I experiment A LOT, so I know a lot of different forms of art. I was just curious to see how people perceived my default style, which seems to have a lot of the mixtures of many different forms of styles. It's probably because over time, I drew many different forms of art.
Ahhhh I haven't heard of them, but I'm very glad you showed me them. Mark Ryden's style in particular stands out to me as unique, and really something else c: Hahaha, I did a quick search on google, and there was some dark art, but it's fine because it was amusing to look at. He really does seem to have an obsession for meat
Aw, it's OK! Me too actually! It's so easy for real life to get crazy and take everything over. It just hit me recently how fast this year is going by!
Experimentation is the best. ^.^ I think it's really cool though that you have your own style that can't really be pinned down to precisely, it makes you unique!
I've loved their work for quite a while, but I'm glad you like them too! I love dark art of certain kinds, but theyre really bizarre and yet oddly beautiful! I love discovering new artwork too, it's so good for the inspiration ^.^
