Appreciating that which I cannot do
I truly do believe that anime is gorgeous. There are many other art styles that I love and appreciate, but there's just something about anime that tickles my fancy more than the others. It might have something to do with growing up on video games, which no doubt had a very Japanese anime-style art approach in the early days. Now we see that style mixed in with all other types of art, but my love of the anime style has endured.
I've tried so many times to draw in an anime style. I've picked up books and practiced for months on end. Nothing ever really came together. I think it might have something to do with my lack of drawing skills in the first place, but at least I tried! Going through those motions and trying to learn how to draw in an anime style has made me appreciate it that much more.
Have you tried to draw in an anime style? Is it something you'd like to tackle in the future? I'd love to see if you guys have tried any drawings in that style. Feel free to share your work in the comments below or via Twitter or my email! I'm sure some of you can pull off some fantastic art, and I'd love to see anything you've pieced together!
