Also this week, since I was sitting around with a couple of hours spare, a Hokuto no Ken pastiche, a special treat for pretend-Internet-friend Ren...
Tetsuo Hara is some kind of crazy god; there's an insane amount of tiny detail and texture and volume-shading packed into some of those images. I've only managed a pale shadow of his work and already it took me about an hour just to do the line art. Not to mention that Kenshiro has the most eighties hair ever.
Hokuto no Ken was my introduction to manga. I still love watching the old episodes and the movie, when I find them while channel surfing.
Rei was one of my favorite characters, because of his slicing techniques.
