Meme- Find your style by mayshing Meme- Find your style by mayshing
Chinese:


My take on the meme:


Other works:


| Altabe Studio |Facebook | Tumblr | Web-mangas | Youtube

This is a guide for:
:bulletred: Developing your style for younger artist
:bulletred: Updating your style for older artists, or widening your style range for specalized artists.

:bulletred: How to use: You can write, paste, or draw into the meme, upto you. Its for your own guide to figure out your direction. After you have figured it out, go full force studying in that direction until you achieve best result, then you can repeat the process to update your style.

:iconmayshing: Rant:
The problem these days is that we have too ... TOO many awesome art styles to reference from.

We ask, "what is my style?" Or "What do I want my style to be like?" or we get the "That looks like naruto" treatment and wants to update but not know where to go.

"You will find it with time." That's what most pros will say to you.

But there CAN BE a formula.

I was at a loss for where I want to go with my next step until I got this advice from a friend who will remain in secret.

I find that using this meme helps myself to go to my next direction to update my style.

This meme guide is to help you to narrow down your influence, or widen it (if you only have 1 style you liked and studied from)

Thank you very much! My take on this meme: [link]

I guess this helped me a lot to narrow my favourite influeces down to those that i really admire. Might be exactly what i needed now. :)

Great idea!

It's still a tad bit hard for me to understand it.. maybe it's because i'm still on the basics...

This is a really neat idea! =) I feel like I understand what direction my style is heading, but I'm tempted to play with this meme anyway. Should help me improve.

You know, this is rather interesting for finding out what styles interest the reader/user. This is something that I think that a lot of artist might have a problem with is trying to decide a personal style for themselves.

Think I'll try out this meme tonight. ^^

By the way CD, who is Sensei?

:icontearplz: Yes~!

Though I sort of know what my style is but I want to see if I can improve upon it and see if it's my ACTUAL style =3=...or just to confirm that it is my style to make me feel better...


That all translates to --> 8D I'm doing this!
