    Personal Style

    Hi everyone at CA. I'm new to this site, so I hope I'm not stepping on any toes by posting this here. Basically, I'm trying to develop my own style. For years, my "art" was anime-based crap, and after intervention from a few friends, I decided to focus on a more natural, or at least, home-grown style, which fit in with my course anyway. I could go on about my personal grievances with my anime vice, but I digress.

    I was introduced (obviously not personally) to several artists, ones that originated in 2000AD, like Dermot Power, Ashley Wood, Simon Bisley, and I've even started painting in acryllics, for the first time. The problem is, while Simon Bisley is a massive influence, I'm beginning to see all my latest work as impersonations of his own style(though not actually copying anything).

    So yeah, if anyone can offer advice on developing your own style, like books or well, anything, I'm all ears.

    Edit: After re-reading that, I sound like I'm a bit up my own arse, but I really amn't, I swear. I don't mean to say that my drawings are anywhere near the quality of the Biz, and I'm very much aware that I've a lot to learn before I'm any sort of artist.
