Angie seems to have a style all her own. It will be her style. There will be some anime references, i.e, sweatdrops and veins and such, but it will be souly her own style.
And question, what do you mean by 'very stop'? Do you mean jerky? If you look at DBZ as you're only example, then yes, this is true. But you were to say, look at Kenshin or Akira or Cowboy Bebop, then this is as far from the truth as you can be.
Each animator has their own kind of style. If you want to generalize all American animation as just Tiny Toons/Loony Toons style, then yes, all American shows feature very toony characters with slap stick humor. But what about such shows like, say, Thunder Cats, or Jackie Chan Adventures, or Samurai Jack or Invader Zim? If you compare each of the shows you'll no doubt notice all the styles at EXTREMLY different. You cannot generalize all American animation just by one type of show. Each are different.
I hate it when people do this with anime. They see a few hentai shows, or a shoujo, and then they think all anime is tentical rape or girls with over sized breasts in skimpy clothes. Anime isn't a genre or a style. It's simple animation. It has many genres within itself, and many styles. Compare Rumiko Takehashi's(Ramna 12, Inu-Yasha) work to CLAMP( Rayearth, Card Captor Sakura, X/1999) or Hayao Miyazaki's work(Mononoke Hime, Tanori no Totaro) to Yuu Watase's(Fushigi Yuugi). BIG difference, eh?
Not only in style, but in genre.
Lesson; for the love of GOD, don't generalize animation to one style, one genre. If you watch a Bruce Willis film, is it safe to say all American films are action-packed bang-bang shoot-em-up films? Nope. So don't. 'tisn't right.
