Amazing work dude, I am humbly inspired and in the midst of my own animation feat one day, I finished the script so now the storyboarding, it just the matter of who I'm going to have it animated. Anyway, I loved your work since you did that State Property animation thing. That was insane, you got that anywhere still? I'd love to see it again.

Hi Mr. LeSean I just recentyl became a fan of your art and it is amazing I cant wait to see cannon busters, it looks like its going to be amazing. But I wanted to ask what helped you find your own style. I am an artist and  I just recently really wanted to go on a search to find my own style so when I make art for commission or even my own anime's and comics that I hope to do in the future. And also what helps you memorize dynamic poses. I sort of struggle with those and foreshortening? And lastly (sorry if this is asking to much) can you give me any advice on what things I should be able to do when getting into the buisness of cartoons and animation and any tips you could possible give me? Please I would really like to know it has been my dream to be an animator or comic artist, and even just an artist in general. And if not I know you are busy with Cannon Busters. So when you have the oppurtunity and time please get back to me. I hope that in the future we can work on a project or something. You are one of my inspirations since finding your art and animation. Thanx BakBone Art aka Rashad Epps.

Thanks for the comments.

Style is when skill meets limitations and interpretation of whatever it is you're drawing. It will come as you actually learn how to draw better.  
You already have your own style, actually. No one will ever draw a hand or interpret a DBZ looking piece exactly the way you do. Nobody interprets line the way you would. If you copied a chair right now, no one else would draw it the way you would. That's your interpretation of a chair. It's just that you're just not happy with your skill set, you're too busy looking at other people's work who have invested years of struggle, failure and constant repetition and discipline into their craft, something you haven't done yet. You're seeing the finished work, the decades of effort & learned experience in one piece and saying " I wanna do that." 

Everybody "wants" things. I "want" to be a millionaire. Wanting things is easy,  because it doesn't require effort or risk. It's easy to type about what you want, too. 

But BEING a thing...that requires struggle, failure, discipline, self-deprecation and stumbling....something that you have to embrace if you want to break through you're limitations and change from the artist you are now. Those answers will only come in continuing to draw. The more you draw the faster it will become second nature, the sooner you can get to shortcuts and stylizing. As for my methods, I've no clue, I'm still changing my  tastes and figuring things out as I grow older. Nothing I will say will help you, as my life experiences are my own. There's nothing I can say right now that will make you a better artist tomorrow...at best it may only massage your self esteem, until you remember you're still where you are as an artist today. 

Type less and draw more every day. 

Good luck, and thanks for the kind words.^^

Thanx "L" I appreciate it. 
 And yeah wat you said is true. I just noticed that I was focusin more on everyone elses styles rather my own. 
And I what I want I am going to do, Im willing to put in the work and the time and struggle to get there I understand that now.
Thank you so much for your words. I appreciate it.
