:blush: Hahahah Thanks! Well... that's a hard question, because there's no magic answer here and I'm not used to getting this kind of questions either. I think is about the work you do and time perhaps, I've been on DeviantArt for 8 years since I was a teenager and when art for me was only a hobby, then I got into art college and now I am a professional artist, so it really has seen my art evolution.

So if you take that into account it has been a path of 8 years and refinning my skills and work, finding my own voice and what I wanted to do. I think the voice part is important, more than skills or technique, what you want to say and what you are saying with your work even if its a fanart is what gets to people. I did this piece 3 years ago and although I look at it and see a lot of anatomy flaws and other things this is still one of my most seen pieces and I think is because the message just reaches the public. It's about what is saying, and not necessary how it looks.

Also not everything is immediate; I've had pieces here for years that had like no attention, and from one day to the other they get attention in the best way possible, so it's all about patience, doing the good work, expressing your own voice and have trust that that voice will reach, even if it's months or years later ;) Don't hurry the good stuff, everything comes at it's own time. Hahahaha supose that can be used for life too = )

I think this is a more hopeful answer than helpful, but hope it stills works =). Thanks for commenting!

Do you mean "style" as my drawing style or the subject (theme) of the drawing?

drawing style.

Wow, that's a tough question; of course I've had inspiration for my style, but there's also a natural evolution to it and practice. It happens to all artists, if you see my drawing style now it is very different from this piece for example, not only because my inspiration changed, but also because I kept practicing different things for improvement, trying some new others and that also adds up to the natural evolution in ones style and skill. I think an important part of inspiration is to be limitless, I used to and still do have a wide range of artists I like, from classic ones, to realism, cartoon, american comics and anime that come from different artists  from different places and I supose that makes my style a little more expanded instead of limited to one taste/category/artist only. 

I hope this is a good answer? I really didn't knew what exactly you were looking for, but hope it helps =)
