I'm trying to influence my drawing style to a western cartoon style. The anime style I usually sketch is drifting off my fingertips. Why? To put it in my perspective, some anime I see, or getting a sneak peek, nowadays are getting into that anime cliches that we all know and love: breasts, harem, bathing scenes, nose bleeds, speeches, gluttony, moe stuff and the likes. I am really trying my best to avoid those qualities as I write novels on my time. Alas, it affected me greatly and started to think that maybe drawing anime-esque style is not suited for me now. You may say I can avoid this but I can't, because of reasons.
For many months, I turned my attention to some cartoons they are currently showing. To my surprise, it was simply... divine! Though viewed from adults for children, along with such comedies and silly antiques, every episode they put into are heartwarming and tear-jerking scenarios. I really don't see those kinds nowadays on my television. This is an all new experience I'm willing to do. They are not only cartoons but they are stories! Oh, such well-written stories that puts me in like novels.TL;DR
I tolerate anime now and loving cartoons even more.
I'll be drawing cartoon-esque with good stories.Note:
I'll be trying to draw this character, with feelings and a little improvement. I need to practice the eyes.
