Most illustrators will have either a recognisable style or at least a few consistent preferences in their work. Over time this will gradually evolve and improve. Even when doing work outside of our comfort zone we still draw our own stuff in a signature style without even meaning to. But has yours ever changed? Now I don't mean a gradual change, I mean a massive shift - possibly as a result of taking in a lot of outside influences or hitting the tutorials really, really hard. Maybe you wanted to improve or saw a colleague doing great work and wanted to get to that level yourself? Or maybe you felt a change in direction was called for? My work was cartoony and flat(ish) but I wanted to improve it and tackle something I'd often admired - digital painting, no lines left in the artwork. Inspired by concept and games artists, I've spent about half a year learning and experimenting, seeking out amazing art to analyse and be inspired by, pouring over hours of tutorials and process videos, to the point where I can now digitally paint in some comfort with a little pace. I never would've imagined being able to a year or two ago. All this has left a mark on my "style", I now do things differently in my everyday work and as a result I'm much less likely to lean on my flat art style and (given the time) pay more attention to light and form, even at the sketch stage. Anyone else changed their style in some way?
