It's been a while since I wrote a new journal and posted some new pics. But at the moment I'm working hard on trying to finish my animatic for my third year film. Storywise I'm happy with it. I never doubted my animation and writing skills, but finding my own art style and painting inteersting and atmospheric colors have always been my weak spot.
So far, two of my teachers told me I have a naive art style. I always took it as a negative thing. It's an official art style, but when you search for it on Google all I find are words like: uneducated, childish etc. My teacher today told me that he meant it as something positive, fitting my style, buuuuut I dunno. It doesn't have a nice ring to it.
My grades are fine, strongest point are my animation skills, but it kinda bothers me that I apparantly don't really have a unique style. It's true that the characters for my films are never complicated, but that makes them easier to animate and also gives me opportunities to create more cartoony and crazy actions.
Tv shows like Gravity Falls and The Amazing World of Gumball serve as a big inspiration for my own style, but I have a long way to go to make my own unique style and it kinda bums me out.
I wonder, what do you guys think? Do I have my own style? What are some of the things I could improve on? Every feedback is welcome.
