how to get an art style

gingerhaze:

You draw a lot. One day, you draw a bit that is sort of different from how you were drawing it before, almost by accident. You look at it and think “oh, I like how that looks.” Then the next time you draw something you try to do that again, only more so. Then again and again until you are doing it all the time, because you like it that way. Sometimes this happens without you really even noticing.

Repeat forever.

clubby-bear asked:

How do you make your color palettes? The JonTron sprites have an amazing color scheme o.o

michafrar:

Visuals convey more than text, but I’ll explain the image briefly.

Hue shifting is important to get colorful sprites, but you should also play around with saturation. I lower saturation as the shades get darker; and I raise it as it gets lighter. I hope that helps!

just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.
