TETSUOOOO!!!!

[Oliver]

Hi ya'lls, how's it goin? I just stumbled on and saw a little known anime called "Akira". ( I definitely recommend you watch this gem of Japanese animation if you haven't.) I loved it and was inspired to draw my favorite character from it, the very misunderstood, Tetsuo.

This is the first in a three piece triptych I plan on doing of all the main characters. I can't believe I never heard of this "Akira"...funny.

Hope you like.

Nice. The robotic stuff in the background looks great.

That is one PIMP Tetsuo. Very cool adaptation of the style.

Hey guys, Oliver here. Thnx for all the nice comments and also, what kind of artist would I be if I never heard of Akira before? It was just a suttle joke, guess it didn't translate that well :)

You just discovered Akira?!!!

Wow...

That was a really big rock you were living under.

Otomo certainly liked his tight, high-waisted trousers, but did you have to put so much emphasis on Tetsuo's groinals? The face is a bit feminine too.

Still the background rocks - did you intend a connection between his arm and the large pipe behind?

LOL... little known. Damn Oliver you must be young and I'm not even close to 30 yet. It's trippy isn't it? Check out Evangelion if you haven't done so... total mind $*@$.

I prefer Ninja Scroll, or Fatal Fury the motion picture.

Are you the same guy who posted the gay hulk picture? Comic fans do get offended when you make cheesecake out of guys, although I am not one of them I just won't buy the book.
