Finally got to watch the class on finding your style. Its super interesting. I was very ready to dive into the homework of building a dream portfolio. I've never sorted through all the art I love to separate out the things that are specifically in the direction I want to go. I put together some collages with my 20 pieces. The earliest pieces that I remember getting lost in were Arthur Rackham and Mercer Mayer's fairy tales. I remember studying their work for hours at a very young age and trying to copy what I saw.
What do they all have in common... Some of them are very sketchy, they tend to have either subtle or glowy color. I think on Jake's style wheel, they move away from graphic/symbolic and more toward the realistic/stylized. Any other similarities you all can spot? I'm not up on all the art terms, so I have a hard time putting into words what I'm looking at. @Lee-White Any thoughts?
