There are a few pieces of advice I’ve found useful for determining which style you like best to get started into in creating art.
Know your own personal tastes.
“Draw what you like. Don’t draw what you hate,” I remember hearing a lot from my high school art teacher. (He did a great job at getting me to be more creative, but I still found it difficult and time consuming.) Be honest with yourself and pick a style you are comfortable with. If you’re not, you can still learn to be creative. You’ll likely notice that the first thing you look at when you are sketching will be the style you like, and it can really help. I find creating a good first piece very helpful to draw a good representation of what you’re after.
It’s important to keep in mind that there is a huge range of styles that come out of different people, so it’s important you take into consideration your own tastes if you’re going to try your hand at this. Keep in mind, however, that the two styles with the closest similarities will most often come out as the closest when comparing your finished work to someone else.
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t have any artistic talent.
Just because you don’t have any artistic talent doesn’t mean you won’t end up with great art either. There’s nothing wrong with picking a style that you like and experimenting in creating something you like. Just realize you will probably end up drawing crap! If your art makes people laugh, smiles, and is interesting to everyone in the art world, you’re on the right track.
Use an artist in an art style you enjoy!
I’ve gotten tons of requests to do this. I used to do this a lot during my junior and senior years, but it’s become quite time consuming to get the hang of it anymore.
If you’re going to go this route, you want a artist whose work you enjoy and that you would find easy to learn from. I know there’s some of those that are free, and while these artists are still very entertaining and appealing, I personally think a lot of them are a waste of your hard earned money!
As of right now, though, I prefer artists I know personally and I always look to them for feedback on my work. If this does come to be the case, I strongly recommend you to find a link to them and get some feedback. If this does never work out, feel
