Hello new people and welcome to my account, where I sometimes post regularly and sometimes not. Big thanks to everyone who dropped by on last weekend's Komiket! It was nice meeting you all! 🤗 Sorry I'm just really awkward in person and with no expertise in socializing lol. I was oberwhlemed that a lot of my merch were sold out that I need to get up early the next day to make new stocks! Thank you for appreciating my art! ON STYLE (Part 2) A lot of you and other people too asked me about the inspiration on my style. I never knew how to answer this before but upon self-evaluation, I think I can answer it right now. I grew up watching anime on television. At that time, the type of anime being broadcasted were the types of Heidi, Anne of Green Gables and the like, Japanese animation with a western culture settings. And then, that became my "notion" of beautiful style, 19th century western culture. Then, ever since, I always watch films and series with the same aesthetics (Studio Ghibli, Wes Anderson, etc). (Do you veen read this? Lol) But my writing style is different. If you happen to be one of the 20 persons who bought my zine, you'll see a huge difference, because my influences in writing are the reading materials when I was in my undergraduate creative writing degree, which mostly consists of socio-political and cultural themes. And that's the explanation on my style 😅 How to find your style? As I've said, I already have a specific style in mind that I want to make. So I follow artists with the same genre. I look at their WIPs and tried to copy their techniques. If ever you're not determined yet of what style you want, you can follow a lot of artists and try all their art style. There are pros and cons of having an inconsistent art style though. If you have a consistent art style, people will commission you because of that style but if you're the one who'll look for clients, there will be few clients who'll look for the similar style that you have and vise versa if you have an inconsistent style.
