Z

I remember watching and LOVING Mazinger when I lived in Okinawa, Japan, as a young'un. I loved how the ship would land on his head. Man that was the was most genius thing to me about the "Z" man. To this day I still adore it's design, and different reincarnations.

For this piece I didn't intend to take it to full colors, until after I cleaned it up, but after scanning it in and a few edits here and there I couldn't resist. hehe

Anyway, here's my take on him. :)




Hope y'all digs!
