At one point in time I was obsessed with developing my own style and it was a complete waste of time. You do not need to "develop" a style. We're all different, no one else draws and paints the way you do, you can't help but have your own 'style' and it is much more original than anything you could develop. The only thing you should Not do is make a conscious, long-term effort to copy someone else's style.

    Copy the masters, try different methods, learn whatever way you can.
    Don't worry about style, just work on being good
    .

    I believe this is my biggest downfall, I see so many brilliant artists and their end results, and I try too hard to paint like them as I wish my art was like theirs.. This in turn causes me to always feel unhappy and disappointed in my work and I feel I am achieving nothing in the process.

    How do you cut yourself from trying to paint like your favourite artists when you cannot gain confidence in your own work and style? What would you suggest in that regard for those who have fallen victim to trying to copy another artists style?
