Couple of sketches of this kung fu character I was drawing a lot of. Inspired by a lot of Jademan comics, I was trying to nail down how I’d like to use speed lines as a foreground active element rather a background one.
DJ Teck’s Morning Attack, a short by Katsuhiro Otomo, published last year in Geijutsu Shincho Magazine. It reminds me a lot of his beginning and ending shorts in Robot Carnival. I love the colors, and realize there aren’t many Otomo comics I’ve seen that were made with color in mind. Just pouring gasoline on the fire under my butt to see his new Shonen Jump longform series, whenever that actually starts up.
