Title: Advice on Creating a Visual Vocabulary and Style
Post by: kelly-owen on May 24, 2018, 12:06 PM
Hello! I'm looking fir any advice fellow illustrators have on creating a visual vocabulary and a consistent style.
My artwork and style tends to be all-over the board and I would like for it to be more concise and recognizable piece to piece.

Does anyone have any tips on how to get there? Did you have to actively decide that you were going to draw in a specific way, or did it just happen? Did you try out a lot of different people's styles until you generated you own?

I would love to know your thoughts!
