I’m taking a pause and a step back from my art because I feel I need to do some re-accessing.
After going through old art files, looking at new files, and struggling to draw what I want, I realized that it was because I didn’t know what I want. I essentially have three “technical” styles of art: flat color, line art, and painted. Only my line art is okay. My flat color needs more work with light and shadow, and I barely know how to paint.
As for my actual style of drawing, that is pretty much up in the air. Every other drawing is a different style, switching between: cartoon, something anime-like, and something leaning toward realism. My drawing style confuzzles me because I don’t know which one I like more. I suppose it depends what the drawing is for.
My plan is to browse art and make collections of stuff I like. Then I’ll go back and study these pieces and figure out which parts I incorporate into my own art. I’m just looking for some certain direction.
