Influence Some Spark

How's it been everybody and welcome back to Highly Animated 2013( YAY!!!), and to start off the FIRST POST of the Year(Excluding the last two) I wanted to talk about INFLUENCES. For I awhile now I've had this overwhelming feeling that I've lost "MY STUFF". The stuff that inspired me to draw things that I wanted to draw not things that my pretentious art teacher wants me to draw or including pieces that colleges want to see in my portfolio; it feels like I'm drawing for everyone except the person I want to draw for( Can you guess who that is?). Just a couple of weeks ago I couldn't even remember how to draw something that I've drawn so many times; I swear my skills are just regressing.

     A way I thought could help me reconnect with all things inspirational to me was doing this little number called an "Influence Map"   
If you have a Deviant Art account than you already know what this is but for the little lads&lassies who don't this is a meme created by fox-orian and it's a great exercise to enlighten yourself about..well you. There are plenty of things that inspire me, but this is just a fraction of influences; so lets start down the list(in no particular order):
10.) Film Directors

Because there are many reasons why I love each of these people I'm going to do some posts completely dedicated to each artist and why I love them ( be expecting that soon).
Check out their art, tell me what you think and last but not least
Hope You Enjoy
