Some designs for an old style giant robo. I want it to be inspired by the generation of robots that came before the super robot in 70s. Tough to balance a look that at once recalls the simplicity of Tetsujin 28, the power of Giant Robo and the grandeur of Big O.
Just another dumpdate! Had an idea for a paper delivery comic. It'd be like mad max/intial d on bikes with lots of painful bruising crashes! I think I drew the last page while listening to Muse's Exogenesis, the finale in particular. It spurred me to draw the finale of one comic. I drew the creatures on the right after reading Yukinobu Hoshino's 2001 Nights, a masterpiece of science fiction comics.
I guess in order to make up for lost time I'll just start updating semi- daily? The 2nd rakugaki book I started didn't really have anything great... a lot of it was rut-ridden, but some interesting ideas still managed to poke through.
My favorites in these pictures are probably the thugs. Mean, ugly thuggy thug-thugs. Thugs with faces that would make their mothers want to punch them. Maybe I should just make a book with nothing but thug fodder in it.
I've spent the past few nights working on a new coloring style and here's the progession, in chronological order. The drawings themselves are pretty old, but I'm still going to work off of them for consistency's sake. I think that even with their multiple errors and levels of unfinish in the drawing stage, if I were to draw them now, they'd be very different.
