    Whenever I think I found an art style I always change it the next week. It makes me feel lost and confused and I always question myself "Am I really an artist" "Why can't I stick to anything" "Have I wasted these years on nothing" "What am I going to do" "Should I just give up"
    I swear to you that where I am is not a perfect place to be and I feel like a lot of artists might be in the same situation as me. Just recently though I've accepted that I should just go with whatever I find amusing until I find something new and not get too attached to a specific style.
    "There should always be room for self improvement" is what I've discovered.

    I agree with you, I have three brothers and I can tell who drew what no matter if they draw the same thing, one would be dark and gloomy and I say it is my middle brother, one is happy and vibrant that is my younger brother and one is so linear and angles that is my eldest brother, now that I am drawing too I draw differently even if I try to imitate either one of them.

    Okay, so, I used to draw in more of a hyper-realism mixed with amine proportions, if that makes any sense, but today I was looking at some pictures for inspiration when I saw a drawing that I loved so much (It was drawn by Arieann on Pagieeworld.com.) because of the style. I had seen this style before, but for some reason, today I was like, let's try drawing in this style, maybe mixed with a little of my own. It came so easily to me, I was honestly shocked. I love the drawing I did in that style and I finished it in under 30 minutes or so. I think I found my style.

    Thanks for this video!! It was SUPER helpful. I'm honestly young(if you call 5 months from teenage-hood young, send help) and working on my "style" a lot, and have been varying a lot.
    I'm also getting into drawing animating, so the "simplicity" version you're talking about is rather helpful. Since you shouldn't spend a couple hours on each frame, simplifying a style makes a whole story that much faster.
    Just a big thank you. I'm so cheesy I'm melting. xD

    This may not be relevant to this video. I think this artist should be more confident in herself. I was watching her videos and I constantly heard her say that she Dislikes her artwork and what she drew. I'm not saying that she can't hate what she wants to hate. I am just stating that you should be more confident in what you drew and what you made.

    It made sense! This is really helpful. I consider myself a mix of beginner and intermediate artist, it depends really. I think this was really helpful.

    My art style changes over time, for example:

    -the way I draw eyes might shift a bit
    -learning ears and mouths
    -anatomy tips

    So ye! Thank you so much! I really love your channel, it’s really inspiring and I love the art you create! 😀

    my professor said that if two artists draw the exact same topic, even if its hyper realistic, it will still look entirely different because some people have more expressive or light or heavy hand. It doesn't mean one is better than the other, just that they're different.

    For style, I have noted a line edge and line shapes are how I note a number of artists. Someone makes a squiggle one way and another artist makes the same squiggle another but mix in the line edge and feeling of the line and it distinguishes the two. I noticed on Amino more recently I see a number of sketches and I know who drew it based on the pencil/pen/brush stroke even before seeing the whole piece.

    My style is varied these days.

    Sometimes, I focus on western cartoon styles mixed with anime styles, and other times I just stick to gothic storybook-like works. Low saturation is always my thing, but I also like drawings with calm mixtures of color and other levels of saturation.

    Your explanation on art styles being a favorite way to draw is absolutely true. I just like to experiment every once in a while, and I can see that the same can be said for your works as well. The works you make are unique, as if they're your own children.

    Whenever I would ask an art teacher about finding a style, they always tell me to instead master the basics first which is one thing I agree. Finding a style is good but finding it while you approach the basics and fundementals of drawing and finding ways to break them help you in finding your own unique style that will make your art and message be known and heard by your audience.

    My style wholely varies based on my medium. When I'm using my mid-tone paper, it bears little resemblance to my Prismacolor Marker-based pieces.

    This was a really cool video! I’ve never really voluntarily tried to find my style. When I started drawing I just wanted to know how to draw stuff, not like in a certain way. But has I kept drawing I just sort of altered how I drew things. I kept getting inspired by other artists and trying new techniques until I went back to just drawing stuff. The things I drew were different though because of all the things I learned. I incorporated the things I liked about different styles. I don’t know if that made sense but yeah. I really liked the analogy with personalities and clothing too.

    style is a huge problem for me, because I just love so many different styles. I tend to draw in a style that I think suits the piece that I'm working on. (which means it varies a lot for me haha) i wish i could just pick out like 3 different styles and stick to them

    Thank you! I love topics like this! :)When thinking about artists style I’m kinda thinking of Beltracchi. I don’t know if he’s very known over in Canada but he is one of the biggest art forgers :DI like your anologies, I wonder if you’re randomly taking notes whenever these thoughts come to your head or if you actually keep all those ideas in your head. Or I guess this is something you just notice over time. Unfortunately I don’t really have a style yet 🙁

    My style changes the more I experiment with different shape and sizes. Though I don't know how to describe it. I don't want it to be anime. But anime inspired or has the aspects of it but is not exactly anime. Does that make sense? I want some YouTube artists to tell me what they think it is or what style group they'd put it in.

    For me I have about 3 styles but mainly two. I have a super cartoony and simplified style and a more stylized style if that makes sense. I feel that it’s important to exercise different ways of drawing so you’re more flexible in your field

    I agree with all your points. The past year or so I’ve completely forgotten about style and just focused on realism studies and making my art work academically, like studying tone and colors etc. Even though I put zero effort into developing a style, I still see one developing naturally. In my opinion, this is the most effective way to “find your style”… not by searching for it actively, but letting it find it’s way to you passively. To me, it’s possible to tell when an artist has been too preoccupied with actively searching for a style. Ironically, in many cases these artists end up making less intriguing stylistic choices than an artist who doesn’t spend time consciously developing a style. This absolutely does not apply to all artists but it is a trend I’ve come to notice. Just my thoughts on the subject. Great video!!!

    My art style:(My supplies): copic markers,pencils,eraser,inking pen idk what kind.
    Non-realistic eyes/cartoon eyes
    Small/cartoon fake lips
    Barbie doll looking teeth (but I never draw teeth)
    Small anime looking noses or moana noses
    Curvy more realistic body shapes (I draw all body shapes I just prefer more curvy body's)
    More cartoon loose hair without a lot of detail
    Ears are just the ear shape with a 6 inside sometimes only the shape
    The clothes I draw aren't that realistic but I'm working on it so there aren't usually and wrinkles in the clothing
    And lastly I draw shadows just so you know
