Fusataka Shikibu has really suffered a great influence from Tony Taka.
I would think that was a good thing ;P

You're right. At first I didn't see it but I looked more closely. Compare the eyes with post #109475. Notice the lines on the inside, center portion above the eyes and the eyebrows. Very distinctive style. Look at the position of the fingers in this post #109260.

What sets Tony Taka apart primarily IMO are the outlines. They are bold and not very well-defined, but it makes his work look more like traditional canvas/paper artwork which I think is more beautiful. TT's stuff stands out immensely compared to all of the recent computer-assisted drawings with near-perfect lines. The shading is also very unique in how it contours the body, particularly on the drawn clothes.

I feel TT's style is a good approximation of what a person could look like if they were viewed through an "illustration filter." It just seems like a beautiful illustration of a real person.
