I've been wanting to do this meme for a while, but I honestly cannot think of any specific art influences when it comes to my style. I just sorta take everything in passively idk.
I think more than anything, music and story influence my art.
The way a story's told or the story itself is something that inspires me a lot/motivates me to draw -- I sort of feed off of the "feeling" that comes from stories.
(Similarly, visual art influences my writing a lot more than other writing/stories do. idk man. Music plays a p big role in each.)
Anyway-- yeah so I decided to list a few things that had story and great "feeling", along with some nice art because why not.
