I had a fan boy moment and felt compelled to do a quick sketch of Spike from one of my favorite Anime’s Cowboy Bebop. It is such a damn good piece of entertainment… filled with creativity and inspiration. Big thank you to everyone involved with making this project and for inspiring me!
It’s been a year since Darkpilot came into our lives! Thank you for all the Benpoe universes <3 @tenukii‘s Benpoe AUs have really been a gift! Prince Ben and the masquerade in Downfall is a favorite. Also Cowboy AU.
What do you think the seven are afraid of? Death, being alone, spiders?
–Sam seems downright comfortable staring
down the business end of a gun. Hell, he’ll even opt not to carry his own; but even in those situations he is in control. And that need is exactly where his fear seats itself. Sam cannot abide losing control.
No one ever sees Sam’s fear.
They don’t see it when he runs his hand over the scar on his throat. They don’t see it when he is intensely engrossed in a plan, or when he readjusts the items in his pockets, but it’s there just the same.
Goodnight Robicheaux -“Goodnight,” the “Angel of Death.” He earned his noms de guerre. Because of his time at war Goody has numerous
personal demons that make him jump at shadows. Despite this, there is something
that is even more horrifying to him: losing his legacy. The bleak irony is not lost
on Goodnight. He yearns to be remembered the way he used to be. It’s why he
allowed Faraday to goad him into displaying his skill. There is no phantom owl,
or fear of death that will keep him from proving (especially to himself) that
he is still Goodnight Robicheaux.
Red Harvest –Red was born a warrior and he’ll die a warrior. It’s the interim that’s unclear to him. While the fear the young Comanche evokes in others has its uses, every mistrustful, sidelong glance from a white man chips away at his patience for clarity. Save for the clench of his jaw, Red Harvest gives no indication of this vexation. Not even to the rest of The Seven. While being with them is a step in the right direction, he constantly cautions himself against bitterness. Ultimately, he fears that it will lead him to compromise and disgrace.
Jack Horne –Jack
Horne’s initials mark his possessions. They are his; and he carries them with
him the way he does the memory of his family: with faith and ferocity. It is
unthinkable to him that those things, those memories could ever be stolen away from him. Yet, the fear is there. He is afraid he will lose them
completely, and that he will lose what is left of himself along with them.
Billy Rocks –It’s
difficult to believe that Billy Rocks fears anything, but there is one niggling
notion that is forever in the back of his mind. For all of his stoicism, Billy
fears that he will never be enough. Not for Goodnight, not for himself. He’ll
always be an inconsequential runt. Billy refuses to let it be a detriment,
though. He compensates for his doubt and fear by honing his elegant lethality,
and he has no pity for anyone who is dumb enough to underestimate him.
Joshua Faraday –Joshua
Faraday will jest, and openly admit to being afraid of clowns. Sonsabitches are
terrifying. The truth of it is, though, he fears change. Not change in the
day-to-day sense, no. Faraday seems to be the human equivalent of a tumbleweed.
He fears that he will outlive the time and place to which he is so well suited.
On sober, sleepless nights Faraday will take pause and think about the
encroachment of civilization. The thought of the West being less wild fills him
with an unease that he finds difficult to quell.
Vasquez –Vasquez affects a devil-may-care attitude
about having nothing better to do, and having nothing to lose; but this is
because the alternative terrifies him. He says he doesn’t have the guts to have
a family, but that is only half the truth. If he had a family, and they were
taken from him, he recognizes that the depth of that loss would break him.
Vasquez has only to look at Jack to see how agonizing the loss would be. And if
his loved ones came to harm because of his past? Vasquez doesn’t let himself dwell on it.
He figures it’s best not to find out and keep his life to himself.
I’ll start with my personal favorite, the Radiohead Cowboy. Some one got plenty of pictures of him, and I kept seeing different angles and what not pop up all over tumblr. Eventually, I was able to piece together the entire set. He’s a good looking guy and he’s wearing the shirt of my favorite band, and on the shirt are the lyrics to my favorite song, “House of Cards.”
Wow… fanart from my favorite anime… Full Metal Panic!… I was having a discussion with someone and we were talking about our favorite anime and the ‘good ol’ days’ of anime and I got to thinking of FMP! And I realized I never drew anything for it. So I had to remedy that. Trying to get back into drawing/art/commissions again. So thought I’d start with something for me, and work my way to my other projects. What do you think?
