What are certain aspects of your webcomic that are influenced mostly by specific things? My comic is essentially a love letter to early 90s-2000s Shounen like Bleach, Hunter X Hunter, One Piece, Yu Yu Hakusho, Gintama and the like as well as Grunge rock and 1990s Pop-Alt.
Comedy: As of 6 hours ago I only have nine episodes of the content so I need to finish establishing characters before I get into the comedy which is more character based (because it's inspired by Gintama) and kind of a thing that helps characterization. A lot of my comic is spent travelling so the characters at the beginning of an arc or in a dull moment may make a dull scenario into a pun or an argument with a lot of characterization that should've been a one page interaction
World: Widely inspired by One Piece and Kingdom, it takes a more Renaissance and slavic combo vibe. While I took Eiichiro Oda's approach of slamming very familiar yet odd and different ideas together, I did take a more grounded approach than Oda and structured society in a simple, yet efficient way, like Kingdom. though I'm not nearly as good as either.
Characters: I would like to say I made them all by myself, but the serious warrior vibes the Shinigami from Bleach give off is definitely an inspiration, though I've gave them traits that allow more levity than that, everyone is rather goal orientated with a "ends justify the means approach" but I made them much more approachable than the Gotei 13, that's for sure. Maybe not as cool though.
Story: I take more of a Gintama approach here as well, the story isn't used as something within itself but a vehicle to see the character grow and adjust. The funny thing is that I write a serialized comic with arcs so this is kind of odd, but to me the A plot is the Main Characters with a simple location A to location B kind of arc while the B arc is used for hyping up the finale of the Season and the C plot is used to build and develop a plot for future seasons for the Main Cast to grow more.
The comic I'm currently working on, I'm currently in the process of improving so I upload Monthly with two episodes this month. Thanks.
