to clarify i guess, i'm asking where the art of people who are seeking to design or create things clearly in the style of anime or manga but not from where it's generally created, would it be accepted as that by others or would it be something else? and is that distinction fair?
I agree that a large part has to deal with how it is explained, i hadn't really considered that. but there would be a clear disagreement from people that the art is solely just influenced and not part of that culture.
as for influence and culture, you can be actively participating in a culture but your artistic influence may be from elsewhere. generally that's what i mean when i say influence. in general though, culture largely influences the individual and what they choose to make, this is generally about how though. it's possible someone is involved in anime/manga culture but is still influenced largely by art outside of that area. and when i make the distinction about the animation houses it's generally due to the fact that they don't seem to relate much to me or people like me, as they are a little less of a grey area and it seems many people have made their minds up that what they make can not be anime, only just influenced.
I also didn't mean to imply my art had no influences, which is what i think you meant to say. if you meant my art had no influence over others, i'd doubt it does as i don't see much of it fit to release and i don't exactly have an easy way of digitizing it as it's mostly on paper.
I'm sorry for any confusion i'm honestly really stupid and bad at this kind of thing.thank you for bothering to respond at all!
