NS Influences Map 2011 June by NasikaSakura NS Influences Map 2011 June by NasikaSakura
I thought I might as well do one of these. hehe

I never really thought to much on my over-all inspiration. It usually varries a lot bewteen pictures, but here are some larger inspirational sources and reoccuring things. ^^

(top left corner) Yunomi-- She's an amazing "amateur" *scoff* artist that has doen some illistrations to Vocaloid songs, more known for doing the art to "Just be Friends." I absolutely adore her art and want to see more of it so much!! I'm uploading a drawing I did inspired by hers soon but it doesn't do her much justics. =w= (This particular picture is of Miku Hatsune).

Manga (Shonen Jump, Shojo Beat, Tokyo pop) -- If you can't tell, I love to read and draw manga! It combines my two greatest passions: writing and art (and in anime/manga style to boot!). And of course I chose the Shonen Jump cover with the original Naruto inside. X3

Rain-- I'm always inspired in the rain. I make some of my most beautiful poetry when it's raining. I love to curl up in my nice warm bed and stare at it out my sliding glass doors with some hot tea and a book in my lap (sketch or novel doesn't matter).

Lolita fashions-- I love them. They're so pretty! I love the laces, poofy skirts, aprons, boots, bloomers, stockings, bonnets, frills, bows, etc. etc. hehehe I'm such a girly-girl~! <3 But there are other styles too. My favorite is sweet and my second is gothic. Usually those two are seen as opposites but they're usually hand-in-hand. >w< haha

Father-- my father is a professional and well-known artist (I'm not saying who). He was my original inspiration. What I love about him most is that he never forced art on me and let me come into it myself. He doesn't teach me anything unless I come to him. He didn't really approved of my anime style for a number of years, but he's warmed up to it now it seems, especially after I've gotten two job offers from it. I also do other styles that are more traditional like his which inspired him to start a new art business this year. He wants me to apprentice him and then when he passes, if I want, he says that I can have the business.

Friends-- They are a huge inspiration to me!! Especially for comedy! XD You guys make my world so much brighter! <333

Knites-- an amazing web comic (soon to be published) by the amazing `yuumei which is Romantic in style. I simply fell in love with it.

Vocaloid (Miku Hatsune... bottom right corner) -- Vocaloid music has been inspiring me so much more recently now that I can watch/listen it! XD haha You probably can see that with Saihate and Just be Friends. I love Vocaloid.

Tokyo Mew Mew -- I loved this series. It's like the half-animal version of Sailor Moon which is probably why I like it so much. >//w//< hehe It was also my first manga I read and owned. I still have all the columes! <3

Toradora! -- My newest favorite anime series! I love that little tsundere Taiga!! <333333333

Sailor Moon-- My first ever anime. I remember! hehe It was my first favorite and I still love it to pieces (though Serena/Usagi's voice in the dub is exeedingly annoying but it gets more tollerable later on, lol). I still own the VHSs and only one DVD. XD I'm so old! lol

Music notes -- I'm not one much for music, but I have been getting more into it lately; mostly Vocaloid, but other more mainstream music too.

American McGee's Alice-- I love the phycological dark twist to a classic childrens' tale. X3 The designs are amazing too (and I never get tired of hearing Alice's British accent and word play). hehe

Rose -- I like flowers and florals. Nature enthrawls me. <3

Tortured Heart-- my own personal problems and scars spurr me on in what I draw. It's part of who I am and I've come to accepting that.

Life-- Life inspires me in everything I do. Sure, it may not always be wonderful, but I make the best of what I've got and I'll find a reason to keep smiling. ^^

Aww~ That's too bad. TT^TT Sailor Moon made me love anime.
I've seen some of Ranma 1/2. I have one of its VHSs. :) I don't know too much of it though since I didn't have TV or Internet when it was airing.
