Manga March Madness: Appleseed
These are both a little late. I have been very busy with life stuff. Anyhow I will try and catch up. I have been working on these drawings the past two days. Appleseed was a very influential comic in the 90s. This is before Masamune Shirow made some bad art decisions as well as went full scale crazy. We can talk more about that later. Anyhow Appleseed is a political cyberpunk romp. You can find out more about it here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Applesee…(manga) .
I chose to draw the two main characters from Appleseed Deunan Knute, and Briareos Hecatonchire two ex LAPD SWAT team members in an post apocalyptic world. Eventually they are found by survivors of a supposed utopian city Olympus and brought into their law enforcement agencies.
I had the hardest time getting Deunans hair the way I wanted it. Briareos was fairly easy once I found the right references. I really liked playing with the silhouette of the cityscape behind them. Overall I think they turned out fairly ok. I can see mistakes but I’m happy with them.
