Never one to turn down an Art challenge, I came across the #drawthisinyourstyle hashtag on Instagram and had to get involved.
The ‘Draw this in your style’ Art challenge is pretty much what it says on the proverbial tin. Artists challenge others to redraw their original illustrations in their own style.
This is actually a great way to improve your drawing skills, without the need to feel pressure to come up with something original. It also helps you to assess and develop your own art style.
In a way, it’s similar to copying someones artwork, but you have the all important permission to do it.
Lara Pickle’s Character design.
For my first pass at the #drawthisinyourstyle challenge I gave Lara Pickle’s character ‘Milk Mermaid’ a redesign in my style. I had a lot of fun drawing this one, and really noticed my comic book style settle into the illustration. Watch the video below to follow my redraw.
