Back when I was first getting started, Endling, The Time Police, and Dana Terrace were my biggest inspirations. They don't really upload as often anymore, and I've sort of grown into being driven by competition. I'm REALLY bad about being competitive, too. I'll see an artists work, admire it for a moment, and then go "I can do better". The reality of it is that I can't, but hey, it keeps me going. :'D
It also seems to drag me into a lot of actual competitions...
It's an amalgamation of visual input that I use to get the momentum going. I've always been highly inspired by cool designs in logos and packaging designs (Paul Rand is a massive inspiration)! I really enjoy seeing little twists and arcs and angles that feel so nice on the eyes~
But the visuals that feed into my art are increasingly of bits and pieces of things I see. Though, two artists do come to mind when I think in terms of aesthetic appeal:1. Haruka Makita is a seriously talented artist that I admire for the atmosphere of her depicted figures' faces. She also has a gorgeous, raw, organic rhythm to her detail work that I would love to experiment with in other areas.2. I draw from Gobi's (Baptiste Gaubert) lively, distinctive character designs and colours. To be able to have that richness of form and confidence in gesture is ANY artists' dream, hah!
Exactly, for me that's the best manga I've read and still reading even my comic resembles bleach style of fights and attacks but I'm still not as good as him in drawing characters n backgrounds
A lot of people on deviantart and youtube inspired me to draw. I really loved oceantann (or oshaikeuchi formerly on youtube) Her videos were super motivators for me. Other artists include rosuuri and also formerly riniuu (she's been of the internet for a while due to an... incident...) For manga artists, I was really inspired by peach pit to get serious about drawing. Their series shugo chara and how it was drawn inspired me. Later on in life, I was really influenced my Sycra's videos on youtube and they really helped me see art from a different perpective.
Tite Kubo definitely, he had the biggest influence on me. Bleach was what got me into manga and into creating webcomics.

Inspo to keep drawing and improving, I'd have to say...
The twins Tomer and Asaf Hanuka and a bunch of random artists on tumblr.
mike mignola is my role model and absolute favourite , the dark atmosphere he creates is the best for me, also i´ve always wanted to do something as dynamic as what yoh yoshinari does
Chris Schweizer, Steve Lecouilliard, Mike Allred, Rob Guillory, Darwyn Cooke, Bruce Timm, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo, Sara Pichelli, Steve McNiven, Scott Kurtz, Eric Powell, Mark Buckingham, Babs Tarr, Doug Tennapel... I could go on
Me to, it is so far my best manga and if anyone asks me its the best in the world
Wow I'm really happy as I'm seeing alot of fellow bleach fans
Lots and lots. But here are a few (not all of them makes comics or draw ):

I also have to mention the Oddworld games.
yes the old and new one.! i prefer the new one bcoz it matches th drawing in manga via anime ^_^
I would have to say the comic book artist Ryan Ottley. He is pretty much does every thing when he does his art for Invincible.The only thing he doesn't do is the writing because that's Robert Kirkman's job. Ryan shows and says that good artwork takes time and lots of hard work. Just reading the comic book series Invincible(which is my favorite series of all time in comics) has made me see that through hard work and a lot of time that an artist can evolve to be better than they could ever imagine.
Marc Silvestri. Dude was my inspiration when I was 14 and first picked up X-Men with his artwork in it. I liked how his style was sketchy but on point at the same time. I pretty much followed him(he's one of the original creators of Image Comics) when he started doing Cyber Force...short of lately, I've moved on from being inspired by his current work, but every blue moon he'll whip up something that appeals to me.
Years ago I would have said Angel Medina, Greg Capullo, Dale Keown and most of the 90s Image Comics roster.Now, probably Leonardo Ortolani and Simpsons/Family Guy artists for my comic Zoonland.
Always is and always will be Shilin Huang. Especially way back in 2011 when other people's drawings discouraged me, hers always makes me want to draw even more. Not only she makes awesome original illustrations, she has an awesome webcomic as well! I was like love at first sight on her drawings.
Ahhh! Gushing about artistsssss! Yesssss!
