really evoking some tripped out Jack Kirby shit
off the charts
Tasteless yet excellent nonetheless.
I always suspected the artist behing this art cover is Nihei, author of Blame! and Knights of Sydonia. Really reminds me of his style. The guy even looks like Killy.
It’s credited to Kan Takahama, so I guess they just were fans of Nihei.
Elemental Gimmick Gear has amazing art direction
I think it’s probably a discredit to say that this was made by someone who was a fan of Nihei given that its style is very different from Nihei’s style in 1999. I mean they’re both sketchy but Kan’s art has a much greater emphasis on realistic human proportions
