TLTEAOTJ+A: fake Newtype by bigbigtruck TLTEAOTJ+A: fake Newtype by bigbigtruck
So someone mentioned picturing this story as an animated series - which, TBQH, I do whenever I'm scripting or drafting, but, uh, their comment made me think "haw haw, wouldn't it be funny to make a fake Newtype Magazine spread, complete with overblown headlines and cel shading and ridiculous tilty dramatic horizon" and well

Looked at some old Newtype issues for reference - all the skies in the real spreads were blue, but screw that I wanted a sunset :I

Hand-painted/eyeballed the background from a stock photo I purchased for reference (rights included).

The cel-shading was actually pretty fun. I usually hate working with uniform line width and no undertones, but it was a fun challenge to balance the warm light and cool shadows in cel style.

Anyway, three days later, and with awesome translations by my buddy Paul, here it is: the most weeaboo shit I have ever done. If you read Japanese, you might get a larf or two.

SO ANYWAY THIS IS WHAT I DAYDREAM ABOUT SOMETIMES

p.s. Yes I know Nakai Kazuya doesn't speak English but his tone and timbre are what I have in my mind for TJ

This is soooo awesome, this should be an animation since I don't really consider it as an anime, it's better

Kazuya Nakai could read the damn Tokyo phone book and I'd STILL buy the disc(s)!

Ohhhh that just makes it worth going back and reading it with his voice in my head!

I wish Newtype was still running, and this would be a SWEET anime!

Hee! I drew this image before I'd even thought about putting the comic online, but you're right... XD

Thanks for the reminder - I have a newer version of this where Amal's face looks better... need to upload that.
