Today’s sketch is inspired by the weather, Incubus, and Yoshitaka Amano. Weird combo, I know. But it’s been sooo hot and humid lately, I wish I were floating in a nice, cool pool somewhere. My favorite band growing up, Incubus, is coming to San Diego on Sunday and, unfortunately, I’m going to miss it. 🙁 Two of my favorite songs are Aqueous Transmission and Midnight Swim – I think I have a lot of floating and swimming on my mind. Lastly, as I was drawing, my characters and scene started to remind me of the wonderful style of Yoshitaka Amano. He’s most known for his art connected with the world of Final Fantasy. He often paints with loose, washy colors and his characters usually have very pale skin. I admire his creativity and the drama he brings to his art. His style looks so effortless and has so much energy – I am always inspired by his art!
