Sorry that I have not been posting anything lately but I made this! Swipe right for the layer breakdowns.
Some of my friends said it looks like The Wind Rises but I actually haven't seen the movie.
People say my works look like Ghibli but it kind of makes me sad because I haven't seen many of their movies and I don't want to be seen as a copy of something.
Prior to coming to Ringling I've only watched Ponyo and Spirited Away. Then in Ringling I watched Howl's, Totoro and Mononoke. Now I kind of don't want to see the rest of them because I don't want people thinking I am super influenced by Ghibli.
It's quite conflicting for me because on one end I want to be myself, but when my works always remind people of someone else's works, I feel like an imposter.
