Audra Auclair's Process
I think it is something that takes time and effort. Just like learning how to draw it doesn't come immediately. It can be a slow process that shouldn't be forced. Instead of focusing on style you should worry about your foundation. Worry about drawing poses, facial expressions, bones, muscles, animals, trees, buildings, shading techniques, textures, etc.. Worry about learning all of the fundamentals and eventually with the knowledge you’ve gained your mind will bend your work into it’s own style.
