My work tends to differ from at least those artists who use pen tablets primarily. My work is not as clean and crisp as most. I like drawing abnormal, dirty, sweaty people who have some character to them. I do use a tablet to clean up small things, but I always try to start out with pencil and ink before adding color and touch ups.
I've been thinking about my artistic influences and I should sit down and list them out. My influences today seems to be a little Robert Crumb, a pinch of Peter Bagge, a sprinkle of Basil Wolverton. It's too bad none of them were any good at doing color. I have tons more influences that are contemporary to the 21st century.
I really liked the color combos in that Gravity Falls cartoon series. Also the animation. I mention that show because alot of my influences are from video games, animations, people on the street. I try not to copy other illustrator's work. But sometimes their influence just slips in there.
Okay, that's it for now.
