ChatGPT is a little freaky

Share Post:

I signed up for the free version of ChatGPT. You can also sign up here.

Here is the article I read that inspired me to sign up. I’d been using it inside Notion while it was free. But they just started charging for it and I wanted to see if the free ChatGPT was any good. I started with a simple yet complex question. This is what it gave me. 🤓

How to find your signature style as an illustrator?

Finding your signature style as an illustrator can be a long and iterative process, but here are some steps you can take to help you discover and develop your own unique style:

  1. Explore different mediums and techniques: Experiment with a variety of mediums and techniques such as watercolors, markers, pencils, or digital illustration. This will help you find the medium that feels the most comfortable and natural to you.
  2. Gather inspiration: Look for inspiration in other artists’ work and various visual sources such as nature, fashion, architecture, or movies. Analyze different styles and techniques, and try to identify elements that appeal to you the most.
  3. Practice consistently: Dedicate time to practice and create new illustrations regularly. The more you practice, the more you will refine your style and develop a unique way of expressing your ideas.
  4. Analyze your own work: Reflect on your own work and analyze the elements that consistently appear in your illustrations. This may be a specific color palette, type of line work, or subject matter.
  5. Experiment with different styles: While it’s important to develop your own style, it’s also important to experiment with different styles to find what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to try new things and take risks in your illustrations.
  6. Be patient: Developing a signature style takes time, so be patient and enjoy the process of discovering and developing your own unique way of illustrating.

Remember that finding your signature style is not a one-time event, but rather an ongoing process of exploration and experimentation. Keep practicing and trying new things, and your style will continue to evolve and develop over time.
