While anime is fun to watch for the average viewer, it often encourages many prospective and creative types to pick up pencil and pen (now-a-days, a Wacom pen and tablet) in order to create anime inspired works of their own! With this in mind, we’ve created a colorful list of titles to impress and amaze the minds of those who love to watch anime specifically for creative inspiration. …Who knows, maybe this list might just get us inspired to create some art of our own (woof).
Grab a few pointers from these stunning anime:
