First art of 2012   8-Man by Lonzo1 First art of 2012   8-Man by Lonzo1
My official art of 2012

I decide for my first piece would be of one my fav.anime classics 8-Man...Yes i've done him before.. but this is the first time i drew him on my tablet since i got it.
For those who's not familiar With 8-Man....

He was once Detective Yokoda a cop who was slain in the line of duty but the brilliant Professor Tani was able to transfer his mind into a powerful robot body thus giving him a brand new life..Tani gives the android the name 8-man because he was his 8th attempt with this experiment this time being successful..The former Detective Yokoda now 8-Man has been given an armor plated body,incredible strength,speed and the ability to change his appearance..Assuming the identity of Private Investigator Hachiro Azuma..8-Man pledges to use his powers to wage war on crime and to protect the innocent.

8-Man created by Kazumasa Hirai and Jiro Kuwata.

I agree. 8 Man was so serious it was almost drama, which put it a cut above any other anime.

Awesome job. I know about 8-Man. He may be a bit underrated, but in my opinion, he's one of the coolest anime characters I've ever known. I've seen the original 1960s TV show, and I've even seen the 1993 OVA. 8-Man rocks.

We have the 1993 8Man After. The animation and the storyline is really stellar. I wished they'd do a live action for the 2016. That would be totally cool.

Yes. Like I said, I have seen that OVA. I loved it. But it left some unanswered questions, and I wish they could do more with the franchise. If Casshern could have a reboot as recently as 2008 in the form of Casshern SINS, then surely they could do the same for 8-Man.
