Inspiration from other sources.
I am finally learned to take inspiration from other sources than just my head. I recently learned that for me it helps to have some sort of mini-story in mind when I create something. And then really lately I learned to start taking inspiration from the manga and anime that I enjoy. I’m a long-time fan and the art style always plays a part in my love for any manga/anime.
Bleach inspires this piece. Yes, I read all 686 chapters first. Then I had my family watch the anime but we did skip the filler episodes. I really enjoyed the story. Usually, typical shonen stories don’t interest me all that much but I loved the story, characters, and the power system. And I really loved the art.
And it all became this piece called “Hollowed Out Heart.”
If you follow me on Twitter you’ll occasionally see some of my fan art directly from my favorite manga/anime. And feel free to follow me on Twitter or Instagram to see all of my work from my digital art, photography, design, and the occasional fan art piece just for fun.
