When I’m creating an art style, I create a new piece of art to be placed under the old artwork and then I use the new art style to set the art style of the new piece of art.
I find that if I do this on a regular basis, I’ll learn the art style as time flies by.
What is the difference between having an existing style versus creating a new style?
Having a style is simply a way for me to express my thoughts, ideas, and concepts through my art. For example, some days I might draw what I think is a good color palette for the game “Bubble Bobble” by playing on the arcade hardware to find inspiration. If I don’t like that palette, I create a new style and create art that is based off of that new style.
Having a new style is different. I want to express myself through my art. I can say, “This is a new way of putting this idea through my eyes.” If I draw what I think is a really good color palette, I can then take that idea that I’ve created over time, create another new type of color palette, add different elements, and then place it under the old art that I just created.
This is the reason why I always create a new style for all my art projects. I create a new style to express me through my work, and the old style is gone.
Is drawing and designing with a brush all the same?
Yes! The main difference is which type of brush I use in the art. The majority of my work is done in ink. My main focus here is to give you a sense of the texture of the medium itself, which is the primary reason for using a water color brush. I use all-new brushes to create the environments where I place my characters and to create the various textures for the game. In order to make it a little easier for you all to understand what I’m saying: Inkbrush does NOT include water color painting. If you’re looking for that, then you should go check out my other games.
A tip for when starting out is to first try everything out in black and white. With my own art style, I prefer to use black and white because it emphasizes the idea that I have a new concept.
What is your favorite color? Why do you like it?
Honestly, I don’t have a favorite color. I think people are going to
