I remember seeing a various really good post about the visual references to american comicbook artist in My Hero Academia, like how Stain takes cues from the 90′s edgy anti-hero aesthetic or how the more exagerated mouth expressions are like those drawn by Todd Mcfarlane -especially Bakugo’s.
All that said I decided to specualte myself about what artists inspired All Might design, both the musclebound and the more scrawny version.
The heroic version of All Might has been compared to a Rob Liefeld character due to his absurd size but I think it looks more like how John Byrne drew Superman but with a way heavier inking.
Even his smile looks like an exagerated version of how Byrne drew Supes’ own.
As for his more humble version, the dropped shoulders that seem to blend his neck and arms, the angular face and the simplistic mouth shape with square teeth remind me mostly of how Mike Mignola draws Hellboy.
Hey guys, here’s a big dump of stuff about my D&D characters from my twitter. I’m so sorry that D&D junk is basically the only art of mine that I can post right now!! Makes me look like an even bigger nerd than I really am.
Lieutenant Vester Belknap, Cirian Aster and Lord Quinten Sunsage.
-He believed if he could make himself look virtuous and pure and pretty- that no one would even notice the things he was hiding. The struggles and sins he carried with him, that tore him up from the inside, would be all but invisible. He was still waiting to be proven wrong.
Cirian is a cleric I’m playing in a solo game with my favorite DM. Belknap was Cirian’s antagonizing commanding officer for a while, and Quinten “Silver-fox” Sunsage is his adoptive father.
