    I'm not a frequent poster in this forum, but I am a painter. Though I don't do much fan art currently, my own work is heavily influenced by filmic aesthetics and the work of Star Wars-related illustrators like Ralph McQuarrie.

    So basically this thread is for us to share our stylistic inspirations, be they genres, individual artists, or other factors.

    Here are some of mine:

    Ralph McQuarrie:


    Really, I like anything with a 70s-style future look to it -

    Syd Mead:


    John Berkey:


    NASA illustrations like this:


    Other artist influences include Rene Magritte:


    Jerome Witkin (his work has a large effect on me - I had to pick something not very 'edgy' and without nudity as I don't think those things would pass censorship here):


    I like some of Magdalena Abakanowicz's work:


    Gregory Crewdson (photographer):


    Ryan McGinley:


    I'm sure I'll add more later.

    So, discuss, add influences of your own... etc!
