Honing Your Artistic Style

A Tip from Creative Illustration & Beyond



"Your style is your innate, organic ability to turn any drawing into an illustration uniquely your own. Artists often discover their styles by simply paying attention to their basic likes, including favorite aesthetics, colors, and textures... Take as much or as little artistic license as you like. Think about the details, flourishes, shapes, and signatures you'd like to be recognized by." ~Stephanie Corfee

Artist Tip

How can you style a simple drawing so that it feels like yours?
