There weren't enough boxes for everything but you'll get the gist of what influences my art now with this Influence Map!

adonihs │ he's one of my earliest inspirations when I joined dA. My previous portrait style is really influenced by him.

Japan │ this where a bundle of influences come from. Almost everything Japanese has been so influential to my art; their anime's, music, fashion, cities, etc. have an underlying impact on my work.

BECK:Mongolian Chop Squad │ one of my favorite anime series. It's the main reason why TΛB exists.

the pillows │ my favorite band. Their music and style has a major influence on TΛB's music.

TRON:LEGACY │ everything about this movie is right up my alley. Bodysuits that light up, futuristic settings, amazing visuals and, of course, Daft Punk's soundtrack; all these things are super influential.

Explosions in the Sky │ another favorite band of mine. Their songs are moving and inspirational without the use of words and that's the kind of music I want to TΛB to put out.

Shunya Yamashita │ my biggest influence came from this guy. I love to draw beautiful and young females and Shunya Yamashita is notable for that. If you asked me who do I want to draw like, I'd immediately give you this guy as my answer.

clouds │ clouds are amazing. I can look at them and instantly be filled with inspiration. Sometimes, when the sun is setting, the clouds look like they're just painted onto the sky. And the sky, to me, is like the greatest canvas in nature.

White Sands, New Mexico │ one of my favorite backgrounds to draw are distant mountains and a lot of flat land with wide skies that just give a grand display and huge depth. White Sands, NM is exactly that.

bokeh │ unfocused lights. Distant cities. Blurred backgrounds. It's a great way to show depth of field. And in a widescreen shot with a subject up front, it gives off a great photograph feel which I love.

models/actors │ when it comes to the characters that I design, I mainly derive them from models or actors and actresses and the characters they portray. Looking at so many pictures of models has given me like a mental bank of resource material.

Legend of Korra │ probably the most recent influence on my art came from this show's style. It just came so naturally to me. I especially enjoy Korra, Lin and Asami because girls who kick butt have pretty much been what I'm all about. Gotta love strong female characters!

Ha! The way you placed elements over the tile dividers is awesome. I just found your work recently on Tumblr, man, and I've been falling in love with it. Nice to see my meme in your gallery, hahah! I can totally see where all of this comes together.

Glad to see you've found your way here!  Your meme is very popular and answers the question of "What inspires you" without having to say too much! Nice to know you like what I do; I've been a little fan of you for quite some time haha

so happy to see a 'the pillows' fan :> also, it's interesting to see that you take inspiration from a variety of things rather than just other artists.

Cool to see I'm not the only one who has a huge obsession over clouds. Also, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad is absolutely fantastic! Along with Tron: Legacy. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go check out Explosions in the Sky and the Pillows now. And the other artists now :D

bokeh reminds me of your youtube video of the TVB speedpaint with the city lights in the horizon. I love that video! And do you happen to know if Shunya Yamashita has a deviantart page?
