It’s Day 17 of the Find Your Art Style Experiment and today I thought I would spend a few minutes looking through some of the work I have created so far to see what I like about it.

Art Style Real versus Grungy

This was the first bit of art I worked on and I really like the theme of realistic or painterly versus more scribbled and grungy. This is an idea I would like to explore so. I am going to put it on my list.

Loose Rough Effect Art Style

Drawing face loose rough art style

Then I also like the rough effect from this drawing so I would like to develop this more, perhaps trying more using reference and then maybe some from my imagination. I also like the big rough block of red.

Not 100% Sure on this Art Style

abstract face drawing style

I am not 100%whether I like these characters or not, I am not quite sure why, but a few people have said they do? Maybe it’s the face shapes or the colours I used. But I did like the original one I did in my sketchbook so I am not discounting this yet. Maybe it would work in a different medium or less black or from my imagination.

I Enjoy Creating Characters

character art style ideas

Several of the bits of work I have done include little characters and that is definitely something I enjoy doing and want to pursue. But maybe I’ll try adding a little colour or using different mediums.

Mark Making Experiments

I tried mark-making last week and have been very inspired by the mark-making techniques of Red Queen Art Creations on Youtube and would like to experiment with making some grungy background to draw little characters over

Sketchbook Drawings Over The Weekend

sketchbook art style

Over the weekend I did a few little drawings with just a pen and water that I really enjoy One thing I love about working in my Sketchbook is starting a drawing without knowing exactly what I am going to draw. So it might be a little character but I will have no idea what it is going to do. Or for example, I did this little drawing which just started as a faced shape. It’s the fun of being a bit more intuitive.

Found a Video Inspiring about Artist Mel McCuddin

I watched a video which I will link to above by an artist called Mel McCuddin who paints a canvas with abstract marks and then looks for figures in it. That sounds like it might be fun to try with characters or figures.

See you tomorrow.
