ABARA by Santolouco ABARA by Santolouco
An sketch/fan art of Tsutomu Nihei's Abara. Really nice and confusing comics. Great action scenes BTW.

The one on the right I was trying to figure the structure of these armors but it ended up looking a bit too much like the reference I was using. So I started again with the one on the left.

Não é o gênero é a obra. Não li esse inteiro mas o primeiro livro é massa!

gostei do da direita, estilo mais solto e com o nankim direto me parece mais interessante...

esse abara tem um narrativa muito interessante, deixa a maior parte da historia em aberto o que valoriza a releitura... e o final é um grande grande chapação.
Ainda não acredito que teve um edição nacional

Legal. Também gostei da finalização deste, mais orgânica. Valeu!

E, cara, comprei a número #1 disso sem saber direito o que era, foi meio no impulso. Apesar de já ter lido Blame anteriormente, demorei um pouco pra ligar os pontos. Achei bem foda e não poderia esperar algo diferente do que um final chapação total. =]

Nihei has to be one of the best Japanese artist out there making comic books and Abara was something he did just for kicks. It didn't stick to him but hey... a really awesome artwork. I like your conceptualization of that character and for some reason that character always reminds me of the Theron Guards from Gears of War :)

I'd just read the first 6 chapters and they are great! Kind of hard to understand what's really going on out there, but the designs and story-telling are awesome.
Never played Gears of War, but I google it and it maybe because of those helmets and the teeth, right? :D

Anyway, thanks!

Yup the head design are pretty similar, btw... have you seen Nihei's new proj... Cydonia no Kishi. Another evolution on his work. A very diff artwork BUT very Niheillistic!

Yeah... I don't know why Nihei's latest work is under the the radar but... there you go!
