JosephB's Honorable Influences by JosephB222 JosephB's Honorable Influences by JosephB222
I just can't seem to stay away from this meme. As I said in my first meme there were a lot of influences for me as an artist. These are just some of the ones I thought were important enough to give honorable mentions to :D

Again, thanks goes to :iconfox-orian: for the wonderful meme.

Ah, some more animation stuff that I loved! I blush to admit that I have yet to see "The Secret of NIHM". However, I did see "An American Tail", "Anastasia", and "Titan A.E.". I enjoyed them all. :)

I have to confess that I never got into the Marvel Comics, even though I knew they were around for years, and I also didn't know that TMNT started out as a comic (oh, uneducated me! :lol:). After the X-men films came out, I read an "X-men" omnibus as well as the hardcover "Ultimate Guide to the X-men", and I finally got to know them. Anybody who thinks these comics are written just for children and teenaged geeks couldn't be more wrong. These stories have such pathos and social satire that you realize the characters' overall appearance and superpowers are beside the point. The characters are well-written human beings with thoughts, feelings, and opinions. I own some of the "X-men: Evolution" cartoons on DVD, and they are amazingly mature for a Saturday morning show, which is why I like them so much (not to mention that supercool theme music!). :D

I'm happy to see that you have "Gargoyles" on your list. This is another favorite of mine, and I purchased all the DVDs that Disney has released so far. :nod: :D

When Timm did the "redesign" with the final season of Batman and when he introduced Superman, that really improved the look of the shows for me. When BTAS first came out the characters were shaped liked blocks, though I do think the women; Batgirl, Harley, Poison Ivy, and especially Catwoman looked much better before the "redesign" turned them way too tiny.

During Justice League, they did allow some of the heroines to have fuller figures, like Fire, Vixen, Huntress, and Black Canary, they even drew Wonder Women with more figure during Unlimited.

I'm not familiar with plz ;p

I think what really turned me over was the Batman Beyond series, it wasn't 100% Timm, at least not to the extreme that some of his more cartoony attempts at Batman went, but I think having a whole new series to start with it in won me over.

I love Anastasia, it's my favorite non-Disney animated movie.

I love most of Don Bluth's movies. "The Secret of NIHM" was my favorite animated movie until "Transformers the Movie" came out, and then of course "The Little Mermaid" came along ;p

Anastasia, The Land Before Time (the very first one!), An American Tail, and Titan AE are also my favorite Bluth films. The others, not so much, but they were still good.
