I'm sure everyone feels the same. I couldn't start drawing without any references when we were younger, right? While I was reading this topic
, something else came out from my mind.
When browsing back my old artworks and current ones, I realized that my style of drawing is heavily influenced by Fate/Stay Night (Nishiwaki Datto).
I tried hard (and actually still trying) to follow of how the way the characters are drawn and how the colors are placed. The illustrations are just beautiful for the eyes to see.
*A comparison, but... Still not reaching that level of coolness*
But now as I'm doing that, I am also in a stage where they call 'experimenting stage'. I'm trying to find my own style, by copying some various artist's styles. I'm active in dA so I keep on lurking there. This will go on until I'm finally comfortable with the style I'm with.
What about you? What or who were your drawings influenced by?
