Monster by MarcelPerez Monster by MarcelPerez
And now for my series of "humiliate myself" pictures, I present to you a remake of a pretty old drawing that I should have redrawn quite a while ago already.
You see, I'm a bit fan of Urasawa's work, specially Monster since it was the series that got me hooked to him :)
So I did a fanart almost 5 years ago, while I was reading the manga. But alas, seeing it today, it looked pretty crappy...
So I needed to try to remake it! I drew this between spare times in university and my comic jobs... There are a bunch of other old pics that I want to re-do while I have some time, but it's hard to find the said time, people!!

PS: Yes, I know that Tenma hardly ever fires a gun in the show, but it looked way more natural to color the smoke than the gun (which is also gray in color, and if I painted it in another color it would look like some plastic toy gun, so yeah...). But, remember! Once or twice, he still DOES shoot! So the gun smoke is still valid! LOL

Oh!! This pic, like the old one, is still dedicated to my friend :iconryina:, because she was originally the one who asked me to do a Monster fanart (we were both into the series =D)

I won't show you the old drawing, because it's really awful and I don't want you to see it!

You'll have to look for it yourselves!! it?



...ok here you are: [link]

Medium: Watercolors, and ink for the lines.

Awesome! :D It's been too long since I watched/read monster!
*screams* PERFECT! OAO
This is very nice. ^_^ Into my favorites it goes! The perspectives have become much more dynamic, compared to the last version.

I think your colored gun smoke is justified. Tenma fires at least three times. Once into Roberto, once into Chritof's (sp?) ear, and once again to chase Roberto away from Dr. Reichwein. Also, whether or not he'll be able to shoot someone is one of his biggest character points. He struggles with it a lot.

In the end, though, I really do think he was going to pull the trigger on Johan. By then, there was a harder dilemma for him to face.

If he could, would he save Johan again?

I loved that show! This is probably the first piece of fanwork I've seen though.
Es perfecto como encaja todo

These vingettes sum up the characters perfecty, you did a great job!
Me encanta tu dibujo, estoy empezando a ver la serie y me encanta. Lo que me da un poco de miedo es ver como acabará porque lo que cuesta siempre en una serie/buena historia es hace un buen final ¡y eso lo digo aún yendo por el cap 5! XDDDDD
Los simbolismo son preciosos y los detalles.
