He's Bengosha- Japanese cyborg warrior from the future where monsters, demons and dragons have become a real big problem in Tokyo after a parallel dimension portal opened up in Shinjuku 100 years ago! His Father was a world famous Samurai master of Yosake Dojo and the secret owner of the legendary Murasame sword. After his father died in battle while he was still a boy, Bengosha, inherited the Murasame and now acts as an elite defender of Tokyo ^_^

This was a character design for a Dragon Slayer contest at 3d Total forums. I thought I'd be a little different and go with some more cyber punk stuff since most entries weren't anime style based for once! Plus the people entering were REALLY good, so I had no chance (Curse you Cyberhues! ) Anyone familiar with the Guyver, Alita (Gunnm) and Metal Gear Solid will be able to see influences, but what's cooler than a fusion of the coolest characters in games and anime?
Bengosha was also used as a character example in book, "The Art of Drawing Manga" and for the cover of "Drawing Manga in Simple Steps".

This art rules. I have a book called 'How to draw manga' coz I love drawing manga, and this is in it. I am amazed at the time it must have taken and the imagination you must have. The colours are really well suited to the mood. It astounds me how good manga can be when done properly and I think this is a really good piece. So cool!

I have to agree with Arlem but... his eye seems out of place.

Hello! I was just wondering if I could get a picture of his back sent to my e-mail. If you could, that would be GREAT!
I really like Bengosha!
