In conversations with a couple friends I was thinking of doing a little showcase of some of my inspirations for this dA profile of mines.
I don't know how often I'll be able to do these but I will try to do these as often as I can.
For starters I have a lot of influences and inspirations. So much so that I decided that I wouldn't make one of those meme image things. In fact I've had to whittle these down a lot still.
So firstly, I decided to show artists that inspire or influence me and my style.
Starting with guys I saw on dA that made me sign up.
This guy pays a lot of attention to the details of his characters. Plus I love his pro wrestling knowledge. You see more than the usual with him.
I love his style of erotic wrestling. Again, he does much more than the standard fare and takes it to the ultimate extreme with his imagination.
His ongoing comics are phenomenal and so is his work ethic. I'm still secretly trying to keep up with him. His characters are really good too.
This guys work got me to sign up here. Amazing 3d skills, great stories and captivating matches.
And now onwards to others who inspired me before I joined this site.
I just realised that this is the only westerner on my list. One of my close friends bought one of his art books and we spent an afternoon just analysing his work. Brilliant artist which I aspire to be like, combined with Takuya Inoue.
Draws the the ultimate curvy women in my opinion. Luscious curves bursting out of clothes... oh yeah. Just awesome and a huge influence.
Koutarou with tpink.sakura.ne.jp/~koutarou/We…
A very similar style to Takuya Inoue. He has the more typical cell shaded anime/ manga style. Really nice and definitely x-rated stuff.
The first manga artist I saw draw women thick, strong and athletic looking, especially video game characters. Used to scour the internet looking for his stuff.
The detail in this guys work is incredible. He has a lot of work out there. Although I tend not to draw really muscular women, I am trying to incorporate his style into mines.
One of the very very few futa artists I look at. Really cool style. Curvy women with some awesome physiques. Big influence. Definitely nsfw.
One of my long time favourite artists. I honestly don't know what to say about him. My main thing with him (aside from the hot gals) is the skin texture he uses. Really nice.
A really great artist. He specialises in female pro wrestling. Has really cool characters, but I especially love his doujin comics, with a nice combination of pro wrestling action and eroticism.
Another really great pro wrestling mangaka. He also has a taste for MMA. He draws some brutal moves and I love the cute he adds to characters he draws.
And there you have it. These are my favourite artists. There are much more but I already had to narrow this down. Any artists I didn't link to do a google search. Check them all out when you get the chance and you hopefully wont be disappointed
If there are any favs you have, give them a shout out.
