One of my illustration lecturers believe that you become a great artist by copying the people who inspire you. The idea is to try and mimic loads of other amazing artists and then try and mirror the inspiration in your own work. As you add more styles to your ‘visual skill set’ or ‘data base’ you develop your own style and actually do amazing things with the little bits of knowledge you pick up as you go along.
I copied a piece done by bluepaletteart. You can find the original work here x. I have no idea how to make it look as magical and glowy. They’re such an amazing artist :D
