I also like it when you draw Harpy with a smile, though I'm still a fan of her original, more hesitant/curious looks.
I know I've never told you this before Glacies, but I consider you to be up there with my other "sensei", the likes of Mark Crilley and Yoshitoshi aBE, two artists that I've literally learned my whole style from. I think it's your combination of gentleness and intricate detail that I want to try to emulate. I'd probably refer to you as "sensei" too, but... I won't. Something tells me it would just embarrass you.
How do you draw like this? I can't even find a style and I'm always so frustrated with my art... Is there any tips you'd give to beginning artists? Considering your art is beautiful and all beautiful art has to be developed.
In all honesty-- through lots and lots of practice!
For me, finding a style wasn't really intentional, it just happens after you continuously refine your works.
Although this will probably sound cliche, never give up, and just keep on practicing! It can be disheartening when it comes to trying to find a style of your own that you're happy with, but you can only get where you want to be through practice. I highly recommend quicksketching (sketching with a pen, no erasing) in order to boost your speed and accuracy. Try studying and practicing realism, and then once you have a strong grasp on the fundamentals, start working with adjusting it through stylization ^^
It's a long process, and it definitely does not happen overnight-- so you must be patient with yourself and your art, and then you will get where you want to be ^^
And thank you very much for your kind compliments!
