my Devilman secret santa gift for @cowboy-punk over on Tumblr, whose request was, “Ryo (and Akira if ya want) in awful 70’s clothes.” honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better request, I had wayyyy too much fun w/ this prompt. I hope most of these are awful enough tho, b/c I’m 100% certified hippie trash, so I love a lot of 70′s fashion trends, ahaaa whoops
I tried to search for Japanese 70′s fashion trends, but I didn’t rly come up w/ much, so I had to mostly rely on American/Western fashion trends. I also took some liberties w/ the patterns on some things (like those purple bellbottoms), but I think I still got the general “feel” for the clothes across, haha
I rly wanted to draw a bonus image of Akira too but I didn't have enough time before xmas rolled around. I'm tempted to draw one later on tho b/c the dragon suit is just.... a gem....
y'all should check out the Devilman exchange tag for this event, it's p fab www.tumblr.com/tagged/devilman…
Nice drawings! You've definitely captured Ryo's... uh, look. XDD
haha, thank you! I've always pictured him as this super tall, gangly figure, so I'm glad his "look" works~
Haha, no problem! I've been binging on Ryo fanart lately, so I really loved yours. For such an influential manga, Devilman doesn't seem to have many fans nowadays.
