To the anime anon: even if you specifically want to draw well in an anime-ish style (and they vary SO MUCH) you don't have to watch it! I watch very little but I really enjoy looking at some screen caps, concept art and nice fan art and it influences my own style. And inspires me. I used to feel awkward about really loving the art and visuals for certain series that I never even watched. But it shouldn't be awkward! You don't have to be an otaku to appreciate good art in anime.
