i've been drawing since i was little (like many) but i started thinking anime in 5th grade because i was playing Kingdom Hearts and reading the manga. i copied anime-style art sometimes but mostly i just drew my own thing (bad cartoons with anime eyes)
7th grade i was into Fruits Basket and was trying really hard to improve my skills but i think i subconsciously realized how awful my anime stuff was because in 8th grade i started leaning toward a more cartoon-y style with some anime elements
by 9th grade i had given up on anime completely! which actually really helped me think outside the box more, style-wise. i found a bunch of artists i liked that had a more Western style too and that really inspired me to develop my own style rather than stare at a manga cover and agonize over drawing knees perfectly. i started focusing more on the big picture rather than tiny little details i thought important to a specific style! so my art became a lot less tense, more free-flowing. i thought more about posing and facial expressions and such than i did beforehand.
even now that i've been studying anatomy and feel pretty comfortable with my own style, i can't draw anime for shit, haha. i guess because i have to think too hard about it looking an exact specific way while drawing it!
some things i drew relatively recently:

as you can see i don't draw a whole lot of anime fanart (i'm into Homestuck p deep rn if you couldn't tell); that'll probably change tho because i just finished Gurren Lagann, Madoka, and SNK and started FMA UuU idk if i'll ever finish the Kamina he was more of an experiment than anything

A lot of the post here seem to be drawings in different medium instead of difference of style.
Its hard for a person to actually possess multiple styles. Not that its a bad thing.

Varies depending on mood or the perspective/interpretation I'm trying to send out.

Mostly Traditional, figurative, representational. Some begin in representation of an image and evolve into representations of different images in the peripheral details.




. . . and I don't have the hang of Anime characters (this is a drawing of a Volks Dollfie Dream I did the face-up on and styled. so her face and figure are anime-proportioned and styled to begin with); it's generally the backgrounds that attract me in anime, as it can be like watching watercolors.

scumtrilescence:

I like the action in your cartoon sketches and the ability/skill you have developed in including significant detaila. That's where I fall on my face in cartoon representation: distilling the character images into the most expressive and individual details. One needs to be observing and drawing and memorizing constantly for that. You have the ability for it and have developed it nicely!

This is the picture aboveby scumtrilescence on which I was commenting:

I guess it's a combination of "realism" and abstract.

My current style is mostly anime/manga, but I'm trying to transition to semi-realistic anime style. I was always naturally attracted to things that were anime styled, like as a kid I loved watching pokemon, digimon, and Studio Ghibli movies. In middle school I got really into reading manga and decided to try drawing it, plus it was "trendy." 6th and 7th grade I was sort of an anime otaku, so my artwork was fairly generic and boring looking. 8th grade I started taking things more seriously art wise, and got my first pack of Prismacolor colored pencils which was a turning point for me. I got a tablet in June, and tried to learn digital art.
I'm currently a freshman (14 yrs old), and I don't know exactly what direction I'm taking with my art. My taste has changed, so I want to aim for more semirealism and more painterly, but still keep an anime touch to it. I mostly use colored pencils, but these days I've picked up my tablet again. My confidence in my own art has been up and down lately. I'm new to digital art, and I keep on getting frustrated that things don't turn out the way I want them to. I'm still trying to figure my direction at the moment.
Here are drawings from this school year (One of them is unfinished):

I wish I had a style. I'm pretty much a living photocopier.

Stop acting like a c*nt. It's easier to show the difference in style type when it comes to art, than just talking about it.
