Anonymous asked: If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take you to really come into your own style where you felt "okay I found my niche" & how long did that take practice wise?
Conglomerating the things you like (or dislike) into your “own thing” is more of a practice thing than a time thing, at least it was for me. I think I drew easily over 100 pages where I was trying to figure out how to hold a pencil, how to draw inside little boxes, etc. I started seriously drawing in like 2006 or so, if that helps (and it’s always an ongoing thing, being yourself). But I think it’s more of a page volume thing than anything else. And don’t forget to have fun with it, too.
