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?
Here are 4 ways you can develop your own animation style:
Study Other Animators
Studying other animators' styles is a great method to build your own. Watch their animations and note what you like and don't like. Take note of their skills and movement. Attempt to figure out what makes their style special.
Experiment with Different Mediums
Try animating with different software, paper, and pencil, or even stop-motion animation. Each medium has its own unique challenges and benefits, and experimenting with them can help you develop your own style.
Take Inspiration from Other Art Forms
Animation is just one form of art, and taking inspiration from other art forms can help you develop your own animation style. Look to other mediums like painting, sculpture, and photography for inspiration.
Focus on Storytelling
By focusing on storytelling, you'll be able to develop a style that's uniquely yours. Your animation style will become a reflection of your storytelling style, and that can be a powerful tool in setting you apart from other animators.
