I've noticed quite a few of us on LV tend to stick to our own styles as a comfort zone and don't really branch off much for new techniques. Nothing wrong with that! Do what you enjoy! But when you do pick up a new technique here and there how do you do it? Do you learn from tutorials, watching other people (videos, irl, etc), or do you just play around with your art program until you find something? I find new techniques by looking at other art and watching videos on art! My weird bubble shading I do now was because I was inspired but some art I saw elsewhere, and I really wanted to try something similar but still keep it my own! I also started messing around with filters because I wanted to see how much more FireAlpaca had to offer.
