    In my defense, roughly 48% of those thanks are for non-smartassery.

    You all think I'm naive! Thanks alot.

    Its Disney/Pixar, Blizzard, Nickelodeon, FUNimation, Cartoon Network, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse.

    We all have big dreams don't we? I'll just work at ALL of these.

    like P sage said, it depends on what you want to do. If you want to work in a team oriented environment. Like being a concept artist, an animator, a comic book artist. You need to be adaptable (maybe have a home style but show that you can do other things). For work that's more a one man show on the artistic end then you might do better with a specific style of your own.

    One job in a team environment that might benefit from you having a style, is as an Art Director. Who ever it was that decided the "Blizzard" look had to have everyone else adhere to the style he had created. Although I dislike that style now.

    looking at john and joe kinda brought tears to my eyes. I revere these guys, hope their still alive, frazetta is gone, never gonna get to meet him.

    They and others are my idols. Not in a way i want to copy their stuff, but in the way that i consider them the fathers of what we are doing today.

    Both are alive and kicking. That was '07. Kubert and Romita (kubert was at the JJ center in NY) at the last 'con. I wanted to go but life stopped me!

    The beast is a masterpiece in character design imo.
    Absolutely. I seriously felt a kind of light euphoria, partially because of the beauty of their art and also the old nostalgia-warm-fuzzies because Beauty and the Beast was one of the cartoons from my childhood (amongst many others e.g. Lion King, The Brave Little Toaster, Fival Goes West, Aladdin, I need to stop because I'm sure this thing has a character limit)

    IDK, my neck kinda tingled when I accidentally mentally combined this thread with another and came up with "Does having a style improve chances of getting laid?".
    What would Caravaggio do?

    I think people who are versatile, who can adapt and change their style to suit whatever, has a much better chance at getting a good job than someone who can only do one style, even if it's realistic.

    sure it will. My dad is a terrific artist, but he can't draw people to save his life. He has designed tattoos and much more of all different things, animals, koi fish, band logos/symbols just people aren't his thing.

    So you could probably apply for a company to be a "weapons" graphic designer and nothing else if thats what you enjoyed the most
