Well, since I'm more or less back, it's time to replace the previous journal.... seeing how I can't use anything but my chromebook at the moment.

Anyway, I've been thinking a bit about this subject. A lot more recently since I've been getting back into the swing of things.

Who and what inspires me?

Now, I don't really follow art outside of DA. I have a couple classics I like. Picasso and Van Gogh, mostly. But that's it.

I really didn't do any serious drawing until I was probably around 13-14. Sure, I drew on every piece of paper, napkin, in every book and on every wall I could get away with, what kid hasn't? (don't you lie)

It wasn't until I saw Balto on tv that I found my love of wolves. Not Balto himself, he's cool too, but the actual wolves themselves. The wolves in that movie were gorgeous and differed so MUCH from the rest of the characters. Even if they were only there for literally a minute and a half, they caught my eye.
Then I discovered Wolf's Rain. Still one of the very few animes I like.

So Balto and Wolf's Rain inspired me to draw wolves, and to a certain extent other canids.

Then DA came in, took my quaint and slightly childish obsession and turned it on it's head. It's 2005 and DA is being FLOODED with wolves. Wolf comics, wolf art, wolf this, wolf that, wolf, wolf, woof.

To a young, impressionable amature: it's fantastic.

Now, everyone I watch inspires me, and I can't possibly put them all down to digital paper, so I'm going to name the big ones. Not in any particular order. These people (everyone I watch, really) was the reason I still lurked around DA, even when I wasn't drawing or anything.

:iconkayfedewa: - Kay and the Blackblood Alliance was the first thing I found on DA. Her dedication to BBA, fans and her personal art has been inspiring me to keep going.

:iconartistic-castaway: - One of the first people I talked to on DA. She was so kind and helpful when I was first starting out on DA and her art is amazing.

:iconbefore-i-sleep: - The first Stargate Atlantis fan I found here and one of the first people I called a friend.

:iconwhisper820: - My old BBA/IDS RP buddy and friend. So was so much fun to RP with and just RPing with her help me improve my writing so much. Drawing with her helped me tons as well. I actually figured out how to draw wolves from the front thanks to her.

Greykitty - No longer on DA, but she is incredible as well. So very kind and supportive, and her art style is pretty cool. I'm sad to see her gone from DA. She has a twitter, so there's that.

There are so many others too! If your name isn't here, but I watch you, YOU inspired me as well. So, thank you! All of you.

My question to you, my watchers and DA, is this:

Who or what inspires YOU?

Post a couple in the comments, or make your own journals :)
  • Listening to: my dog snore like a bear
  • Reading: Thrawn
  • Playing: Ratchet & Clank
  • Drinking: Sprite
