I did this for the Drawing for Comics class am attending at the moment. I think my map is a little bit crowded but I just had to place all of the things that influenced me and played a role in shaping my style and the way I paint today, and probably will continue to do so in the future.
I will write a quick note for each of the boxes starting from top left:
Angle dude: No name for the artist, mostly classical painting, heroic figures and superb anatomy.
Shokuen.com : I recently found his website and I have to say that I looked a lot to find it, he got some really sick figures, and I just love his girls so thin so ill.
Raymond Swanland: Amazing illustrator, he did the covers for the American version of the manga Priest.
Helmet Dude: Sculptures ... just lots of them, great anatomy and great figures.
Ashley Wood: Who doesn\'t love the work of Ashley???
Adi: He is the one who got me to love Ironman. amazing armor designer and painter.
James Jean: Who doesn\'t love the work of James!!!??? >_>
Kim Hyung-tae: Even before collage, I started collecting his work. I loved his tall girls and his super clean coloring and his costume design.
Jia Ruan: One of the best digital artist around, I love his colors and I hope that I can be as good as him one day.
Jo Chen: Clean and beautiful portraits.
Niklas Jansson: Probably you don\'t know this guy, but he is the one who got me into digital painting... yeah coz of him I wanted to paint.
Warhammer art: ....Duh!
Kids on tiger: Don\'t know the name of the artist, got lots of his work but couldn\'t find the name, help me if u can.
Mike Mignola: Who doesn\'t love the work of Mike!!!??? >_____>
Lucky Luke: I read a lot of this comic when I was a kid, got most of the translated books, they were few that got into Arabic though.
Min-Woo Hyung: The best manga artist to live, and Priest is the best manga till today...... its a shame that they stopped it... (((
Adrian Smith: That is a must, right?
----------------------- That is all. And yes you can build your own Influence Map which is made by this guy here [link]
I'm not the only one who knows of Niklas Jansson! WOO! He also got me into digital to be honest. he's out of my Influence Map, because I couldn't find him again. Nor could I remember his name, but with this. Thank you so much, man! So many wonderful re-acquaintances.
