Ode to the old school by Ryuuhiken Ode to the old school by Ryuuhiken
Well seeing as most of the new anime and movies that have been coming out are mostly boring. I decided to go take a look at an old (very) school mecha anime/manga "Dragon's Heaven". While the series was very low-key and had a small reception I always remembered seeing a design from the show time to time thinking "Thats pretty cool". After coming across a mecha site called "MAHQ" I found out where it was from.
Dragon's Heaven was a manga created by known Gundam mechanical designer "Makoto Kobayashi". All of the designs were very organic while retaining a mechanical feel, which is something I like to see from time to time. While the OAV I watched was unsubbed, and feeling its age (1988 lol...) I still enjoyed it. So heres to the old school "Here here" :drunk: (soda so sue me xD) BTW its drawn completely in pen, and is not a design from the show, however I did have some fun trying to get into the design style,feel free to comment.

P.S. Yes it has four arms ^^;...

Ill take that as a compliment but these drawings are actually pretty (very) sloppy compared to Makoto's sketch work.
