Here are some of my designs from One Last Score! I had such a good time working on @scrotumnose‘s idea for a Cutey Honey/Lupin III/Rouge the Bat inspired young Ginger. I put a lot of love into her design & collaboration with Dave & I’m so happy with how everything turned out! @brandonwuart designed her trusty sidekick, & S/O to our post production editors who did an amazing job plussing the sequence! I also especially loved translating @haewon-lee‘s Ginger w/her Marie Antoinette disguise into a final design because her board drawings were perfect. Ginger was one of the pilot characters I redesigned before I started on OK KO full time, so it was very cool to see her star in her own episode. Art direction by John Pham, & @kalidraws doing a killer job with the colors as always!
