This is a grid that you can populate with what you consider to be your greatest creative influences in up to 3x3 tiles. Larger tiles are more significant, obviously. Tiles can consist of absolutely anything that you consider formative to your present sense of creativity and body of work. Television shows, movies, novels, comics, cartoons, plays, quests, or even music.

Use this thread to post and discuss your greatest creative inspirations.

I guess I should post mine. It was difficult to choose these, and I might even shift some things if I re-did it.

1. Studio Ghibli: These movies are all so very pretty.
2. Transformers: Things turning into other things is the best. Also robutts are pretty great.
3. Cucumber Quest: This is what convinced me a lineless style could really work out well for me.
4. Terry Pratchett: I devoured many fantasy novels as a child and teen. Discworld was always one of my favourites. RIP Sir Terry Pratchett.
5. Keychain of Creation: This is what set me on the path of trying vector art after seeing a simple style could still be very cinematic.
6. Andrew Loomis: When I was first learning to draw, the Loomis books were a great help.
7. Tsutomu Nihei: Huge architecture, creepy biotechnology and robutts. What else do you need?
8. Evangelion: Non-standard alien invaders versus robots! Unnecessary religious symbolism! Gateway anime! This might explain why I like protagonists with brain problems.
9. Magic the Gathering: I got back into Magic about the Mirrodin, Kamigawa and Ravnica era. The art and the setting design back then was really neat. Also goofy combos.
10. Madoka: A recent influence. I loved just how weird the witches and their barriers were.
11. Lovecraft: Anything can be improved by inserting tentacles.
12. China Mieville: Weird fiction! I love it.
13. Steven Universe: I want to eat the brains of their colour palette guys and absorb their knowledge.
