"Skill is the result of trying again and again, applying our ability and proving our knowledge as we gain it. Let us get used to throwing away the unsuccessful effort and doing the job over. Let us consider obstacles as something to be expected in any endeavor; then they won't seem quite so insurmountable or so defeating." - Andrew Loomis
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!

http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=192127"Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."-John Huston, Director
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
