Hi! Watching your works I remembered the adventures of "Douwe Dabbert and The secret animal kingdom": [link][link] That's an absolutely amazing classic comic, I don't know if you already knew that but I highly recommend that to you.
The disadvantage of emulating a specific style is you're only limited to what you see in that style. On the other hand having a good understanding and experience of foundations/basics of drawing in general and color theory will give you the ability to learn and adapt to different styles much faster, because "style" is just an advanced form of "basic" after all. Not only that, but you can always stay ahead of yourself because you have a mastery of the basics.
Trying to learn styles without foundations is like trying to walk without feet.
Your right unfortunately. The way im just going after an style wont work. I need to take a step back and actually learn what light an color really is. I think from here ill try to runder pictures for a while , or some kind of first hand reference , photos , stills stuff like that.
Thank you by the way for some of your insight. it wont go wasted
