Monkey Punch just drew the cast of the new live-action Lupin film in anime form.

I think the article is mistaken. This is not Monkey Punch's style at all. They are the product
of an animation studio most probably. The "animated" versions of the live-action cast are also
used for a trademark set of snack food.
Time to play the game, time to get a chance !

Oh.

Update: I wouldn't call it 'fan art', but you can see a drawing of Fujiko on the official Lupin mag in Japan looking like she belongs on the set of Rose of Versailles.  If you look closely, you'll notice that it's because they cast real actors (or actresses, I guess) for a special Lupin-themed Takarazuka Revue. 8)

Update 2: Urusei Yatsura seiyuu Toshio Furukawa just uploaded a sketch featuring Lupin and Ataru8)

Update 3: Via @catsuka, vid of Otsuka sketching Goemon.

I used to draw all the time, but over the years that hobby declined. However recently I've taken it up again, on my iPad. I'm kind of re-teaching myself, so I'm doing a mixture of tracing and embellishing with my own touches. It's been a while since I drew some Lupin, but watching Jigen's Gravestone got me in the mood. Here are a few pictures from the iPad of one of my favorite subjects:

Fujiko with a gun. This one is a composite of a few different pictures from multiple sources, joined together and redrawn into a new image:

Fujiko and an old acquaintance reunited:

(On a side note, I've always felt that Return of Pycal was a bit of a disappointment. I'd love to see a new story involving the man they called a magician done in the Fujiko Mine/Jigen's Gravestone style...)

And lastly, it wouldn't be Fujiko if something wasn't NSFW. Except for the face and shoulder, which come from a frame of Fujiko Mine, this is pretty much all my work, and it's my favorite of the trio:

Here's the reference I used for that last one:

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

Thread, I command you to rise from your grave (and rescue my daughter).

I'd hoped to have this ready in time for CR's stream of the blue jacket series starting, but my original plan to do flat-colour on the character art didn't work out and I decided to paint it instead.



Click image for larger, or here for process video.

Also it occurs to me that it recently passed six years since I started doing digital art seriously.  Totally worth it, every minute.

I dig it, man. Definitely glad you didn't go with the flat colors, since the mood created by the dim lighting is what really makes it (although I love the posing and expressions, too. They just radiate cocky confidence, despite likely being in danger, which suits their characters well).

About a month and a half ago, I decided to try my hand at drawing the gang in various expressions (I called them "character studies", is that the right phrase?) as a way to practice drawing faces in general as well as exploring their personalities a bit. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a little bit about the characters that I never did before, especially since I was trying to take inspiration from Monkey Punch (for example, did you know that in the manga, Zenigata often keeps the brim of his fedora over one eye? And that while the anime gives Goemon side bangs, MP has always drawn him with sideburns?)

I'm totally jealous of your technique and skills, Gaff ! XD
The lighting, colors and anatomy are really great and the whole is really solid and engaging
with Lupin and Fujiko looking right at us, with complicity. Excellent work ! I'll definitely have to up my game ! ;)

And DrFurball, I like all your manga-inspired sketches. They are an excellent way of working on facial expressions
and movement. ;)

I confess I stopped posting my work on the forum and I'm usually posting them on DeviantArt or Tumblr but here's a
small selection of my most recent lupintic works:

Technically, this is an official cover, but I had to add my two cents. Anyway, is it just me, or does Fujiko in that corset remind anyone else of those Rocky Horror Picture Show stage performers?  ;D

Well it looks more like classic lingerie to me but having seen the movie recently,
I can understand the connection. ^^

Following the resurrection, here are my most recent Lupin-related works !

Yellow Lupin (he exists in colored pages of the manga):

Wow, I really like that yellow Lupin, good job. I totally vote for a yellow jacket in part 5.
