I Like It Rough

Sometimes my art just doesn't seem like my art unless it's a little rough. I naturally gravitate toward art that is a little more gritty and loose and rough. So why have my more recent digital pieces been trying to be so tight? I've been trying to get a handle on some different styles lately, but I don't know why. It takes years to perfect a style. What I should be doing is working in the style that I like and that comes more naturally to me and just make it better and let it evolve on it's own. Also, I think that my last couple digital pieces have been trying a little too hard to compensate for the fact that I haven't been drawing and sketching as much lately.

This lady in the jellyfish dress below is a little rough, but she's more my style. Here's to trying a little harder and being a little truer to myself.

Oh, by the way, I got the idea for this piece by another Aya Takano watercolor of a girl dressed in a squid dress. The title of the piece is Squid Dress. I couldn't find that particular piece online to link to it, but if you have never seen Aya Takano's work before, I highly recommend you google her.
