Influence Map by gem2niki Influence Map by gem2niki
Blank meme here: [link]

I always wanted to post an entry about my influences...but this seem quicker. There are waaay too many artists I am influenced by, but these are the major ones that affected my style progressions. I have favorite traditional master painters...but they're more like inspiration than anything.

Honestly I feel like I get influenced heavily by one artist for a certain time and then move on to the next like some leech...

If you share some of the same influence, let me know XD

I am absolutely in love with all of oh!great's and Obata Takeshi's. Their arts are so detailed and the colors! *die* OMG I LOVE SUGISAKI TOO! been waiting for DN angel's ending in such a long time T^T and I really liked Takehiko Inoue's work (mainly Real and SlamDunk, Vagabond is amazing though) I really like your choice here.

Kinoshita, Obata, galou, Digimon and Ouran influence me a lot...in phases. It's like, learn from one and move on to then next. Nothing wrong with that, right? XD;

It's interesting to see your influences~

Katsura Hoshino, Nomura Tetsuya and Hitori Bisco(ouran), were major influences on what I draw. I'm still learning though ^_^'' the manga and anime that come from their work though, definitely helps :D

AMG I SEE YUKIRU SUGISAKI, KATSURA HOSHINO (old style Q_Q), TETSUYA NOMURA, OH!GREAT AND OBATA TAKESHI :icontearplz: THEY ARE MY IDOLS until a few of them changed their styles

IM LOOKING AT YOU HOSHINO :iconwthplz: and slightly Sugisaki since her stuff got more DISPROPORTION AND BIG-EYED MOE although I really like it for Lagoon Engine Einsatz

but those two were the greatest influences on me ;u;

ROFL you listed the reason why i don't find them influential anymore haha. Hoshino and Sugisaki had beautiful style in their earlier works T__T Everyone on DNAngel looks like little kids...they're going backward in time haha.

QAQ Im so glad someone agrees with me! I was IN LOVE with both of their older art styles! but then they changed it and now it sucks :iconcryforeverplz:

LOL DNAngel did exactly that XD which makes it hard for me to read because I still love Daisuke to death but he looks/is WAAAAYYYY younger than me QAQ *feels like a pedo*

And Hoshino WHYYYYYY I have this theory that she actually died and that they replaced her which is why her artwork suddenly changed after the Lenalee fight with Eishi. It looked okay at first but it lost that soft gothic look that made me love it QAQ THEN SHE MOVED TO MONTHLY AND NOW EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE CRAP OTL I didn't even recognize Allen when he first showed up! He lost his 15yr old boy-face and his Zidane/EdElric hair style QAQ And the Noahs...yeah they just look gay...I dont like it sorry for ranting OTL

We can only reminiscence how good their artwork was back then T_T *lol at your icons*

I can't get into the series anymore b/c of the fluctuating art changes... You're right!! I did notice the change with the Lenalee vs Eishi. Some weird mouth shapes were happening. I think Hoshino's illness did some brain damage >_>;;; Like she's channeling in different artist style or something after she goes into each hiatus. There was a moment I actually went back liking her style at around 165. But it didn't last long T_T I don't want to even think about her current style. Everyone looks the same!!!! Have you notice Allen looks like Kanda and Alma?? (i didn't bother really reading it tho since the artwork blinds me)

LOL its nice to rant someone who share the same opinion!

This. Right here. Totally agree. Hmm, maybe I'll do this sometime. Looks neat.
