I really have to disagree with the assessment, Ludo's work looks nothing like Toriyama's. Dragon Ball is excessively cartoony, often almost to the point of funny paper-esque cartooniness.That said, as manga becomes more widespread and available in the west, you're just going to have to deal with up-and-coming artists in the comic industry showing that influence in their own work. That's just the way of things.Besides, you'd do good not to just discount an entire form of media (manga). You might be surprised to know that only a small percentage of manga has "exaggerated facial expressions" and "spikey hair", generally in the shounen genre targeted at adolescent boys. Take a peak at something more adult-oriented, like Hiroaki Samura's Blade of the Immortal or Tsutomu Nihei's Blame!, which are two of my personal favorites.
