4 Ways To Develop Your Own Animation Style

Having your own personal style in animation will make your work stand out, help you attract an audience, and eventually turn them into your clients. Being unique pays off. But how to get there?

4 Ways To Develop Your Own Animation Style

Here are 4 ways you can develop your own animation style:


1. Use real-life references

Even the most creatively animated character or object is usually created based on a real-life person or object. It's perfectly fine to use real-life references to draw in your own art style.
