that last sketch you posted with the tears is a good example for how you keep copying odlaws bby
….Okay. Let me tell you something, bby
I won’t lie, I like odlaws (odraws) a lot, their drawings are very nice and inspirational, I actually have some of them printed out in my map of inspirational pictures.
But I’m not copying them.
Our styles are a bit similar, it’s all about gore+cute stuff, sex+sprinkles and so on….But I only found out about them this year or so, long after I started painting these things, long after I discovered my own style.
Now, for the tears, I know odlaws does that too.
You’ll discover tho, that extremely big tears are something especially studio ghibli does a lot and I think that actually inspired me a bit more, I’m not really sure though because I don’t think about copying anything while drawing.
This is how art works, you see-
You get inspired by something and you take small things that other artists did and build them into your own paintings to create something new.
That is creativity. Rearranging old things in order to create something new.
And yes, odlaws is among my inspirations, along with a looot of others for example: Tim Burton, Mike Mignola, Stanley Kubrick, Pendelton Ward, Frazer Irving, Alfons Mucha, Leonardo DaVinci, Marilyn Manson, Hergé, Tove Jansson, Park Chan Wook, Eiichiro Oda, Quentin Tarantino, bla bla b l a
There’s so many different influences I don’t even know about them myself.
The reason why my paintings/drawings might show some similarities to odlaws’ (tho I don’t really see a lot) is most likely that we are about the same age and experienced similar artists in our lives (as for example studio ghibli which leads back to the tears though of course I can’t tell you if odlaws was also inspired by them.)
However, this applies to every artist ever, of course you take some things from others and
copy them but that does not make it any more or less yours. (I can’t believe this is about that horrible sketch i mean oh god how can you even compare that horrible picture to anything odlaws did?!)
