First meme here!
This is my Influence Map:
-Mafalda: When I was a kid I really liked Mafalda strips, Quino style and humor sense was my beginning.
-Mordillo: He really influenced me when I was 7-8 years old. I started drawing Mordillo looking cartoons and I still have most of my drawings from my childhood. He lives in Palma de Mallorca and, even having been invited to meet him several times, I've never seen him in person. One day I'll got my drawings signed by him, I promise.
-Rurouni Kenshin: For me Kenshin was like the ultimate anime series when I was 14. I wanted to draw like Watsuki for a long time XD.
-Baby Follies: No comments. HAHAHA!
-Super Mario Bros. 3: With Mario 3 I knew amazing pixel art and also beautiful video game packaging. Mario instructions booklets were so cool for me! with tons of illustrations... years ago, when I made my first and only manual for a Nintendo game (Doodle Hex for DS) it was like a dream come true.
-The Simpsons: What can I say?
-Mega Man: When I was 10 I LOVED Mega Man NES series. I was drawing my own Mega Man bosses for a long time, even for class works and homework! One day I made a wood puzzle with one of my own bosses XD
-Street Fighter Alpha 3: The art of this game is one of the biggest influences on my art. The cool designed characters, the sprite work, the overall graphic design of the publicity and the game itself... everything.
-Snow Bros: This game was an influence not only for me but for some of my closest friends. The pixel art, the characters, the colors...
-Pokémon: specifically the video games and the trading card game art was a reference for me in many aspects. Again pixel art and branding design were for me really important at that time.
-Illusion of Gaia: My first RPG game. I really liked the way people used to interpretate the tiny pixeled characters. Again: packaging and manuals design was very important for me.
-Kablam!: This tv show was so cool! It was like an internet meme!
-Project A-Ko: With this anime (and many others) I started liking the moe themes and started liking drawing cute girls.
-Slam Dunk: So much style on Slam Dunk! Later I realized that Inoue Takehiko was going to be one of my heroes!
-Silent Hill 2: Amazing. Again, everything related to this game amazed me: the game itself, plot, music, character design, publicity, packaging... graphic design in general.
-Bust-a-Move 2: Amazing character design, colorful art direction, really neta interface design...
-Honey & Clover: this one is more or less recent for me. I loved the manga, anime, j-dorama and movie. Is very girly but the art direction of all projects is really sophisticated. Also the character design for me is just perfect.
-Inoue Takehiko: As I said before is one of my heroes. Every time I don't have inspiration I just see his artbook Water. He is so talented and his art is so elegant, stylish, strong... I wish one day I could master watercolor like him.
-Samurai Shodown 2: When I was 12 I was going to the arcades just to see for hours how people played this game. The art for me is just perfect in every aspect. later with Samsho 3 was the same, pure inspiration for me.
-Street Fighter V II: This anime was a reference for me in many ways, really well drawn for that time.
-Fist of the North Star: I just started to see this anime this year and I love it! Now I understand why people love it. I think that this anime in influencing me a little lately. I really like the 80's look of the character's design.
-Akiman: Ok, for me this is the biggest influence. Since I was a child I was influenced by Akiman without knowing. He designed several Capcom characters and his style just pops up from others videogame artist styles. I think that lately you can see his influence on my drawings more than before. I wish one day I could design cool characters like he does.
OK. I'm really tired. Take care!
