yeah same here. as Aformentioned I dont really have favorite artists really,there are SO many out there- just good art that catches my eye, I appreciate…artists who come up with their own styles who are willing to try somthing different as long as its in the right direction…
FIghting games, Comic books, superheroes, cartoons/ anime manga/
Streetfighter was the turing point, and since then ive never looked back, but as far as character designs Go, Ive taken a liking more for SNK’s designs overall, -
I have a strong liking for Martial arts, Kung fu movies not only by bruce LEE, But with other Martial artists Such as JET-LI, and Michelle Yeoh, Donnie YEN,
Fist of Legend has still got to be one of the best Kung fu movies ive ever seen ( a movie that uses little wires ) also noted should be Donnie Yen’s IRON MONKEY, and Once Upon a time in CHINA and America with JET-LI…ive studied alot of their movements watching some of the local Competitions that are in town, as well as taking up a little myself, has helped me tremendously with capturing fighting poses, stances and action.
Im not gonna preach again how Important it is to have Figure and lifedrawing skills,but if one wants to grab jobs in animation etc, etc, its important that they have the Foundation laid out for them here first with the basics first-
