i'd add another smaller square to put Frank Miller, Macross Plus, Mecha Sonic(welp) and Sub Terra(book) but that wouldn't be as relevant as the ones already there.


The original, its a nice excercise actually, since it allows others to understand what you do and why you do it that way

(i think i overdid the part about modding it)

(and everyone should be aware about myself being a robot/space fag at this point C: )

(inb4 the nes wasn't an inspiration?)

fuck da pixels

It's not as pixelled as I'd have expected... but that doesn't make it any less cool. Nice work.

actually seeing Shirow and Toriyama work in the same piece irritates me more than I thought. One I love (even if nearly all his female characters seem to have the same face) and one I loathe greatly.

fun fact is, i love both for the mechanical desings rather than for their characters. they are both sides of teh same coin: while shirow always aims for efficient, smooth and efficient desing, toriyama always winds up all sorts of extra devices and gears that add a more rustic vibe.

fair enough. The robot in chrono trigger was my fave design in the game (the frog was cool too) even if i'm not an rpg fan. still hate his human character designs and dragonball z is my absolute least favorite manga/anime I've ever read/watched in the past 25 years or so since i first saw anime.

Shirow's stuff doesn't just appeal to me thruogh the artwork but I've enjoyed so many of his stories too.


You mention macross plus too. Always enjoyed that, the design work, the story and even the music. I'm not usually a fan of Macross (other than the Transformers Jetfire toy I had as a kid) but Plus really worked for me whether it's the 4 part version or the re-edited movie version.

the desing of the Blue Varitech(the VF-21 if i recall correctly) is one of my all time favorites ever.
