e1n's Influence Map by e1n e1n's Influence Map by e1n
Well, this was awfully difficult to do.

The bottom half, at least, the top half was quicker than the time it takes for light to travel eight times around the earth.

Jumping on the bandwagon since this seemed fun to do. I cannot deny the fact that half of my style is derived from One Piece, since that is the main reason I started drawing in the first place.

Also I love looking at buildings and sometimes wish I was doing architecture instead of Physics, but AutoCAD is such a pain in the ass and I hate making floor plans.

Bill Watterson and Douglas Adams are two big influences and inspiration when it comes to humor. They are responsible for some of the longest, loudest, most obnoxious laughs I've ever had while alone.

Claudia Nice has a lot of books on inking and creating textures with just ink, which I found amazing. Her books has inspired me more than any artbooks in the world ever could.

And Google Image is probably my most visited site for references.

One Piece is an obvious source and the others are interesting to know, but there were one or two I never even heard about. XP
Nice unique map man. ;)

I like how the first few panels were filled w/ One Piece, it was exactly what I first thought when I saw the deviationwatch message for your influences.
Thanks for sharing :nod:

Loved your The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference

only Lord of the rings is better than The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
XD

Ahh, this makes me want to do my own.
One Piece inspired me to make my art looser and more zany. Still working on that...
Hah, I love Calvin and Hobbes! That strip is so cute! I also love the faces he makes and the variety of styles he can use.
Also, am I the only one who thinks Usopp looks cool in the image you used?

I could say a lot about how I adore Douglas Adams, but there's so many people that will say all that I could and more, I'll just limit myself to Stephan Pastis: he is a surprising comedic genius. I'm generally rather indifferent to the comics in the paper. Many of them are good for a small laugh, but Pastis is so consistently funny and has such a wide-ranging sense of humor that Pearls Before Swine is something of a breath of fresh air. In my opinion, he makes reading the comics worthwhile again.

It took me a moment to get that Life, the Universe, and Everythin was pretty much part of the same thing.

This bandwagon is an interesting one. It's pretty cool to see what influenced people and see all the different inspirations. c:
