There is a new meme going around on Tumblr and DA related to styling your characters! I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in 2D work. It can bring up whole lot of challenges when it comes to facial features and breaking up how you usually draw to give you more range with your work.
There are about 35 squares that you label with different artists, games, or cartoon titles and you then proceed to draw yourself or one of your OC characters as if they were in said title. So if you pick Pokemon, you need to research what multiple characters in the game or TV show look like and draw your OC in that style. 🙂
