I also was inspired to draw (cartoon style) largely because of Herge's works.
Well, my style is indeed the manga-style, but even if I had many influences on the style from many manga artists (CLAMP, Tanabe Yellow to name a few), I think, up until today, the one that taught me to draw the lines (even if it is just subconsciously) is Hergé. No kidding, but I can't easily make thin lines or wobbly lines when drawing. Most of the time, if not always, I draw constructive, clear and thick lines. If I start by thin lines, it will always gradually become thicker when I add other lines later, and it happens unintentionally! Perhaps this happens because I watched Tintin often, and its artwork (although it is actually slightly wobbly when I compare it to the comic today) subconsciously influenced me. Back then, I had no idea that even Hergé started his ligne claire drawings with some thin, wobbly scribbling (although now I know this, this didn't even change the way I draw lines, not even a tiny change!).
As from Tintin, he inspires me to see the world. He makes me thirsty for adventure (travelling in general and mountain climbing in particular). Aside from my family's custom on each holiday time, it must have been caused by Tintin that I enjoy traveling (and adventure, of course!).
