The style that I applied to All the Might in the first volume it was having a negative effect. I was inspired by the character of the american shamelessly, her fingers of All the Might they were square, flat and angular.
Plus it's fantastic the way in which he applies black spaces. And’ how to perceive the feeling of reality if you look from the distance the balloon for as it is incredible the three-dimensional effect. When I started to imitate his style in order to understand its tricks and artistic, there are successful. Also the shadows that the drawing in the manga are inspired by the art of Mike Mignola“.
