I'm amazed at how much the Japanese style of manga art is progressing. Whenever I search an artwork on deviantart, there are at least 2 works that are of manga style. What strikes me even more is that this style has influenced places as far as Britain. Put beside american style cartoon or realistic-cartoon drawings, the manga drawing is probably more likely to get the most attention (I'm not sure; it still depends on the person's interested style, but I know the manga one would cling me the second I glance).
Wow, the Japanese did a great job influencing the world. To think, the very first manga was adapted from american comic strips. Now, manga, from what I see, is dominating the visual art world. I can't blame anyone; the manga style is one to marvel at. I too have grown to love the style.
It's either the striking detail, the captivating backgrounds, very-human like character renders, beautifully drawn females, handsomely-drawn males, dazzling colors, or all of them what make manga so attractive.
I can't say that this is a bad thing, but I think it might be harder to create original styles that are not of manga adaptation nowadays. The manga style is way to attractive to let down and reject getting concepts from. If the style isn't that original, I guess it makes up with the more original story line. Even with a manga adapted style, one can still inject his/her own style into it to make it unique. In the end however, it's still manga inspired.
I don't know if everything I said is true; this is merely my observation.
I am a Filipino artist aspiring to become an animator and publish a novel. I like works of fantasy and almost all my works are fantasy based. My style is based off manga but it isn't, so it doesn't exactly look like manga; it's my unique style (hope it's unique, maybe a little). I do watercolor too, but not as often as pencil and ink works. I'm also working on a fantasy novel. Still a rookie but hoping to make a mark in the artistic world. I also admire works made by others (No artwork is bad). Hayao Miyazaki is my animator Idol! Hoping that the Philippines can catch up to him.
