Flan by LukeDenby Flan by LukeDenby
365 days of Cyborgs

Desty Nova is one of my favorite villains. He's one of the best mad scientists out there. Like many good villains he often believes what he is doing is right, atrocities in the search for knowledge and truth. The original Battle Angle manga is one of my favorite comics, the new Last Order is still good but it's really different.

This is probably my last cyborg for a while so I can focus on other pending art project that need to get tied up before I leave for vacation.

And he's truly immortal to boot. He can bring himself back time and again :D

Favorite villian ever!!! If that freakin movie ever gets made, they need Matthew McConehiegh to play him. The face (when he takes off his glasses) is a perfect match!

I think Cameron wants to make a CGI Movie like Avatar but with no real Actors.

It's going to be live action, but by necessity most of the cyborgs will be CG. They already have an actress for Alita - They're doing motion capture on the set along with the normal live action stuff. It's not a big stretch to see a live action Nova along the line, though the movie is supposed to encapsulate only the first 3 novels (up to the first half of motorball).

Remember that they photo realistically created the human actors. So they can still base it on him. Can't imagine Cameron not using real actors for mocap and voices.

I finally found you.
I came across this picture and was wondering who drew it. It's a very good drawing, much like your other drawings. Bravo!

Damn. This was so unexpected. My friend sent me this, but I left it in the tabs window, and I knew what the pic had to be through the name up there before I saw it.

amazing character, great technique, you're gifted!

I'm agree, Last Order is different, but it's fun, very fun^^. I thinks I prefer this original... But I love Sechs XD.

Even though he/she is just a supporting character I think Sechs is my favorite in Last Order.

Yes, me too, with Gally of course. (but she's less berserk in Last Oder ><) the design is so great, and his personality is engaging^^.

Very nice and richly-detailed image of this great villain!

It is a pity there isn't a movie or series based on Gunmm yet, even though james Cameron commented he would be directing one. I do hope, however, they keep Gally' name intact, instead of using the americanized version, 'Alita'.

I wouldn't mind if they gave the anime another crack. They did one a few years ago but they tweaked it a little to be just a 2 episode OAV.

A young Anthony Hopkins would be amazing in a live action Battle Angle.
