Who/what influences your style?
« on: October 12, 2016, 04:52:28 pm »
I always find these interesting, to hear who or what influences an artists style and sometimes finding those traits in their art cool.

So is there a certain artist or maybe a cartoon/anime, or even video game that influenced your current art style. Do you draw influence from multiple sources, like you like how one person inks, how another shades and maybe you like the general style of that one anime and kinda combine them all for example.

You can say other things like what influenced you in the first place and stuff, I'm just curious owo

For anthros I try to mimic fursuits, specifically AutumnFallings and PhoenixWolf. They're just so cute!

Otherwise, it's just a mixture of thousands of different artists I see all over the place. Professional animators/illustrators are a favorite!

I should probably reply for myself too oops

A huge influence for me as kid was the original Pokemon style and that kinda stays as a general influence from 90's anime(nothing specific just the general style, most notably the eyes), recently I've been picking up things from some of my fav artists like CookieHana, The_Jotaku, enjoiPANDAS, and Crwn, although my style has been cutiefied a bit recently cause some new favs like PoofyLion and TeaParties.
There are other smaller influences mostly FA artists but those are the main ones right now, their all awesome artists^^

when i first started drawing, i wanted to draw in an anime-ish style. however that changed into something a little more cartoony haha, i've had people describe my style as a hybrid of like steven universe and bee and puppycat. idk how true that is but
i don't like anime styles anymore, some are pretty to look at but like it's not the type of style i want to draw in anymore.
if i had to pick artists who have influenced me, i'd say... probably teazs and squeedgemonster.

I'm still a total rookie, so I don't have much of a style yet. I can say though that what style I do have is heavily influenced by my experiences with drafting and technical drawing. I can't draw something without meticulously reworking it constantly and I tend to take forever to do simple things because I try to get them perfect the first time. I also have a hard time freehanding because I'm used to drawing with at least a reference to go by, if not precise measurements and a straight edge. Part of why I haven't improved very quickly is that when I go to draw something I usually feel I have to set aside at least a half hour, I have a hard time just doing quick simple sketches to practice so I don't really have time to draw much. I need to learn to just sketch stuff even if it turns out really bad at first.
