Imagine if I had published Rekira the Super Monster in Japan in tankobon (trade paperback) form in the late 1960s! It’d look something like the following illustration, which I started yesterday (July 14) and finished tonight (July 15) on tablet in FireAlpaca. :)
Did another illustration of my Moonlight Mask/Gekko Kamen-inspired Batman! Notice a slight change in Batman’s design, more to my liking! I also did my own version of Batman’s most popular nemesis, the Joker (inspired after one of Moonlight Mask’s own popular adversaries, the jester-like Satan no Tsume/Claw of Satan)! Did this one this morning on tablet in FireAlpaca.
Sailor Moon: Modern Guardians
With the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon happening, I decided to redesign the five main Sailor Scouts and give their outfits/uniforms and tailor them to fit each character a little more/be less dated. I replaced their tiaras for high-tech visors that vary slightly for each scout.
Originally, I was going to wait to post these rough pieces once I finished the actual piece for an upcoming Sailor Moon art show I was doing but my twin brother wscottforbes wanted to post his version of it (I’ll link his once it goes up), so here are mine! A rather weird style for me to draw in… I drew most of these a few months ago. Expect a better piece to be posted later in the month/August.
Here’s a little something I drew on July 4th (this past Friday); two big reptiles at the Hollywood box-office! :)
Done on tablet in FireAlpaca.
Whilst working on another project lately, I’ve been able to whip out this hand-drawn pencil sketch of the new Godzilla, finished on May 30, and colored tonight with tablet in Photoshop.
It’s a new video with concept art and new clips and ADRIEN and sdfkhlekhfqcdqiunefkwc
I’ll post some screens in another post.
Having seen early pics from last year (as well as the prior hand-drawn anime), I’m really impressed!
(Above image from COMICPALOOZA last weekend - super great time!)
So we all know by now that Edwards is returning for GODZILLA 2. I’m GENERALLY pleased, but not without some trepidation. Edwards has very specific imagery and storytelling techniques he likes to use, but I fear that if he falls…
As some of you are aware, I loved the new movie! Matt’s suggestions (if you read the whole thing) are more along the lines of what I would suggest. :)
Technically, Godzilla is already out in theaters, as tonight was an early-bird screening, and among the people seeing it was my big brother Peter! I’m sure he’ll enjoy it, as will I tomorrow afternoon in 3D-IMAX.
Tomorrow’s the big day! I’m pretty anxious about it myself.
But I’ll bet you forgot who else lives in San Francisco (where a major part of the movie takes place), so I’ll let Bessie Higgenbottom get a word in… ;)
Done tonight/this morning on tablet in FireAlpaca.
Superman (mangá, 1959), por Tatsuo Yoshida
A revista de mangás Shounen Gahousha, enquanto republicava histórias do Superman da DC Comics no Japão, também publicou sua própria versão do escoteirão, escrita e desenhada por Tatsuo Yoshida (Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Casshern, Tekkaman) - uma revista raríssima nos dias de hoje.

I knew I wasn’t crazy! Here’s the Superman manga by Tatsuo Yoshida (Speed Racer, Gatchaman, etc.)!!! :D
I saw this cover on an old Japanese newspaper clipping of Tatsuo Yoshida’s obituary from 1977. He looked sort of like Racer X!
This was from 1959-1960, when Shonen Gahosha was about to cancel the Japanese edition of Superman Magazine, and decided to extend it with some all-new manga stories. Originally, Jiro Kuwata (8-Man) was approached to do this manga, but felt his art style back then was not developed enough to do Superman justice. (Indeed, because around this same period, he did a Super Giant manga which looked really strange. Not quite the style you’d expect from him! Nonetheless, years after his trademark style set in, Kuwata accepted the offer from Shonen King to do the Batman manga in 1966, to tie in with the Japanese release of the TV series there.) So Yoshida took the job, as you can see.
