Patience and Style

Excerpt from graphic novel by Vanessa MacLeod

I've been thinking a lot of style lately.  Now that the Gender Through Comic Books course is done, I'm devoting most of my spare time to the graphic novel I've been working on.  Currently, I'm on the 2nd draft. (example above)

I think about my favorite comic book artists who all have amazing yet totally different style.  Terry Moore for example, and Chris Ware.  When did they get comfortable with how they draw, and the way they do it?  How long did it take?  I know it's all about practice, improvement, and that never ends.  But how do you train your brain to draw something you can be happy with?
