Style Chameleon

Category: General Prompts

Draw your character in at least 6 different styles!

Details

Draw your character in at least 6 different art styles from animated shows or other artists! You can also transform your character to make it fit into the world of the show more- ie. if you're drawing a dragon character to fit into spongebob, you could draw it as a sea dragon. 

When you're analyzing the style you'll be adapting, pay attention to the following:

  • Posing & expression: What's the norm or range for these in your source?
  • Shapes: Are the characters very geometric, or very soft and rounded?
  • Line style and weight: Are the lines precise or sketchy, thick or thin? Do they vary in thickness, and where? 
  • Color use: Style comes through in color choices as well. What kind of color choices does the source make? Are they usually muted, darkened, high-contrast, or oversaturated more than what you would use? Try to experiment with using color-picked colors from the source.
  • Think about how the source might be drawing and how you'll imitate it- will you need to use bigger, looser strokes than normal? Will you need to work in blocks of color instead of line?

Art Requirements

  1. Six fullbodies of your character in different styles other than your own.

Art Bonuses

  • +2TC for including a fullbody of your character in your own style
