Trying Out Styles

2020-07-10 14:37PM

I finished reading The Frog Princess to my daughter and I made this little illustration inspired by it. But this time, I tried to develop a completely different style than I usually use.

A little princes lets a frog leap out of her hands. The princes has autumn leaves in her hair.

Every few months I like to mix up my style and try something new. This helps me get out of any rut I'm in, but it also helps me understand my current (and usual) style and see it from a different perspective. I get to solve the same problem in a different way. Sometimes I bring back the new techniques into my usual style, or sometimes I continue to use the new style for the long-term.
