Hey! you’re from the SA forums yeah? I recognise your style. I really dig the colours you use and your treatment of facial features, especially the noses.
Umm, as far as influences go… Jesse Moynihan is probably number one. I fucking love everything he touches. Seeing stuff by Sam bosma really kicked me into drawing again a year or two ago and has been a constant subject of adoration, jealous hatred and outright imitation for me. I think Jillian Tamaki is the best illustrator out there. My irl super pal Tom Hunter made me realise it was okay to simply draw whatever I thought was awesome and that has really coloured my style. I think my stuff steered towards looking like what I liked by Nick Edwards for a while, too.
edit- more recently there are a lot of people influencing me to the point that I need to take forced week long breaks from the internet.
Kali Ciesemier made me buy a tablet, Andrea Kalfas made me get back into gouache, Jimmy Giegerich made me add loads of texture to my musclemen and goop, Michael Deforge is just, like, woah, Brandon is making me give comics a serious go.
There are loads more but that’s what comes to mind right now. This message has made me realise I am a giant hack
Hey I’m doing a project where I draw portraits of people. If I follow you and you want to know what you’d look like with some sort of battledamage/facial scarring, post a pic on your tumblr and reference this and I’ll do it :)
