The conventional Anime style (big eyes, large heads & proportions) origin traces back to Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989/Astro Boy, Kimba The White Lion, Black Jack), unanimously known as 'The Godfather of Anime' who was heavily influenced by the style's of Max Fleischer's BETTY BOOP & Disney's BAMBI. Anime's signature style was derived from American animation styles.

See how we influence each other?

In animation school they told me that the influence was snow white as it was the first disney flick released which featured larger eyes that they felt like mimicking and fell in love with. To each their own I guess.

Amen. I'm tired of people always saying Japans better than us, they are more creative and ect. I'm not Japanese and I'm an aspiring artist. I'm influenced by Western and Japanese art but when I tell my friends this they laugh and go " ew western why would you be inspired by that?" 

Its annoying
We do influence each other. We look at Japan and Japan looks at us

I have known this for a few years, but a lot of people don't.

Seems like it all came full circle with the Little Nemo movie.

That's funny, a visiting cartoonist told my class the same thing only a year ago.

Absolutely, LeSean. This reminds me of how Kurosawa's super-seminal "Seven Samurai" was itself a nod to the Western genre, later being remade as a western in The Magnificent Seven.
