Om-nom-nomnivore's Influence Map Picture

I've been wanting to do one of these for quite some time now. I'm glad I finally got around to doing it! This represents many of the things that inspire and influence my art. It was hard to narrow it down to so few, since there are many things that influence my art.
I'll go thorough an explain why I chose what I did if you'd care to read more:
Disney: Primarily the Lion King which has had a very special place in my heart since childhood. Disney has familial animation and stories. I also have a very long history with it. One of the very first drawings that I ever did was of a lion.

Studio Ghibli: Beautifully detained animation combined with inspiring stories and unforgettable characters.

Pokemon: I consider pokemon to be a part of my soul. It has been one of my favorite things for as long as I can remember. Many of my earliest drawings were of pokemon. I still enjoy drawing all of those lovely creatures!

Adventure time: One of my all time favorite TV shows and favorite animation styles. It's simple and unique and has woven its way into my own style. The funny and carefree atmosphere of the show has inspired me to show my goofy side in my art.

Anchent Egypt: The culture and mythology of ancient Egypt both fascinates and terrifies me. Their art is very unique and I love all the angular shapes and bold colors. They also have very good taste in fashion.

Cave art: This particular picture is from one of the oldest known cave paintings. It's an entire wall covered with cave lions. I find it inspiering that people from so long ago still have preserved art today. It's an example of the lasting effect of art on the world. I especially like the drawings of animals that have now gone extinct, such as these cave lions.

Haida art: I like the art of very many Native American people, but the Haida have such a unique style of depicting animals. It inspires some of the tattoo like designs that I make. I also like their use of black, white, and red.
