I’ve wanted to do one of these for a while! It’s basically a map of people I’m extremely inspired by!
1. Alice. X. Zhang
Alice always amazes me with her colors, they always seem so random, but work so perfectly together!
Madi, she’s an amazing cartoon artist, I love all her comics and chibi’s!
They did the art for the “promise” avatar comics, and I love it! They have a really unique cartoon style!
Noelle, I love how she doesn’t necessarily draw anything proportional, but her fun doodle drawing style really makes it work!
5. Hans Zimmer
Not an ‘art’ artist, but a master nonetheless! He did the soundtrack for Batman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, and many other movies! I’ll never object to listening to his music while I draw!
6. The Minish Cap
The only video game I’ve ever finished. Unfortunately I lost my gameboy advance, but I still sneak my little brother’s into my room to play this! The gameplay and story are cute, and the art (both in game, and concept) is really fun!
7. Concept art
I love concept art. I really do, its so fun to see the initial thought and design behind the finished product! This piece was done for the animated move ‘The Prince of Egypt!’
8. Howard Shore
Again, a music artist. He did the soundtrack for the Lord of the Rings / the Hobbit. (I have all the cd’s, and they never leave rotation in my house stereo!)
I just discovered her art a couple weeks ago, but its amazing! She’s super good at cartoons and painting as well, excellent stuff!
10. Bryan Konietzko
Ah, the creator of Avatar! (aside from creating my favorite tv series in existence I love the paintings and doodles he puts on his blog!
11. Alan Lee
Concept artist for Lord of the Rings, I have his art-book and its absolutely beautiful! One of my favorite art-books to look through!
12. Hayao Miyazaki
This man is responsible for films such as Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and My Neighbor Totoro! (I think I remember reading) that he storyboards every movie personally… I love his watercolors paintings and sketches!
