Interesting stuff, Ry. What influences you?

Oh, pretty much anything I see that I like. I'll take both thematic and specific visual cues from all sorts of things both fictional and otherwise. If you mean technique or style, I very rarely study such, but if pressed might cite webcomics like Zebra Girl, Subnormality, and Ava's Demon as ones that inspire me, visually- for a long time webcomics were the main form of visual art that I consumed. Also the graphic novel Saga, I rather love the art and character design in that.


The tribal guy is more towards the abstract end of my inspirations, more of a generalized riff on a sort of Mad Max-esque techy muscular future that just fell out of my head without a ton of thought. I started drawing a muscular dude and gave him some accoutrements, really.

The scene of the bear about to kill the monkey stems mostly from my fascination from the brutality and relative fluidity of Bronze Age era war and politics- the bear is a part of a raid-heavy tribal culture, and the monkeys are part of a bureaucratic empirical culture mostly based on ancient China.

The haloed lich on the cross was something of a doodle that halfway through turned into a specific visual riff on the being Adam, from Evangelion.

The bat-man... I've always held a specific fascination for altered humans, or humans combined with something else. Not sure why, but it's the reason I draw a lot of animal people, I should think. Ultimately I think I could probably attribute it to stuff like the Secret of Nihm, the Fly, Planet of the Apes, and the Thing. There were a lot of things I saw young that might have impressed an interest in the human form modified or altered.


-EDIT- Do you have any specific influences yourself you'd care to name, yourself? I dig your outline-ambivalent, pixel-pencil style.

I see a bit of homestuck in Gauph's recent stuff.

But with less self-indulgent codswallop.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Yeah, I found Homestuck pretty striking at times. I always lacked in the color and composition department so I've been fiddling around with it in paint, 'cause in that thing you're pretty limited. It's fun and challenging. Planning is important since there are no layers and it's tricky to come up with something kinda sorta interesting to look at by the end.

I like not too many things, but when I like them I do so obsessively. They tend to get stuck in my brain for a long time and present themselves in weird ways.
I'm also vaguely influenced by anime but never really got into that. Mostly I just like interesting characters wearing cool costumes and holding weapons and stuff, influenced by loads of video games.
If I had to pick a genre I like most it's fantasy. Thankfully you can apply that anywhere.


But yeah, I've tried lots of different things to try to stay interested in art. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
It can be a lot of fun but I get after myself a lot for being so lazy.

Figure I'll do more throughout the month as part of the challenge. I hardly ever do this sort of thing so maybe it'll help me learn.
USING ALL OF MY TRAINING

Gauph we need to get you making a point and click adventure game.

All we need are your crazy backdrops and characters with some simple animations. It'll b a HUGE HIT I guarantee

more like itll be a HUGE SHIT

But yeah, it'd be neat. I think I'd be more likely to make a VN or even webcomic before I made a point and click. Dunno though. Suppose if I grabbed one of those engines out there I could make one. Problem is that they're structured a little differently.
Even considered making something goofy in RPG Maker but eh.

Eh.
Aboot.
