Becoming unique is so incredibly difficult.
When I started drawing I was just trying to be good enough. I would practice and practice to see how well I could represent something that was real. After that I started to try to draw things that suited my eye a bit more. I guess I'm still there trying.
There's lots of advice on the internet and a lot of it is completely useless.
I found a piece of advice that I think I can put into practice though. They said that you need to try as many styles as you can until you come up with something that is uniquely you. Something that is recognizable as your own.
You know a Picasso or a Matisse or a Van Gogh when you see it.
If you look at some of the early work from those pioneers, you can see that they experimented with different styles until they came up with something that was uniquely their own.
I guess a unique style grows out of all your blood, sweat and tears. You have to put in the work.
Some resonate with you. Some don't.
I have learned that I just have to keep on trying until something pops out.
I don't think I have it all figured out totally but I'll keep on trying until I do.
This little something popped out recently. I like it cause it makes me happy.
