Quite a few years ago, after I'd done a couple of slight things for Dark Horse, the editor of their Blade of the Immortal repackaged Manga editions asked me to do a pinup for the back of one of their comics. Thankfully they sent me a stack of reference, because I'd never heard of the dude. Anyway, this is what I came up with. The composition is completely ripped off from Hal Foster.
The pinup was published in Comic Afternoon in Japan at some point. That little tidbit has gone on my resumé ever since.
