A few days ago, I was browsing someone's illustration site. They had some anime-ish stuff, and one drawing that wasn't any style I'd seen before. (The one on bottom left)
I thought it was the best.
It made me wonder about my own style. It has certain conventions that I think are limiting its effectiveness.
If I had drawn this in my normal style, the two boys would have been close in size, and both have had small triangular noses and pointy chins. The big guy's expression would have had to be scaled back.
Not that I think this little poo sketch is great, but I think it's more interesting than the alternative I described.
