IIRC, this is supposed to be a movie-poster image from one of the kung fu flicks Minmei did with her cousin(?*), presumably featuring the two facing off against an evil monk of some sort. Note her cousin's highly suspicious resemblance to "Dead Prettyboy"** from my Titans: Scissors, Paper, Stone DC one-shot, and the fact that Minmei appears rather more racktastic than I recall... (Well, it's entirely possible that her chest was Photoshopped for the movie poster.)
Why, here's another Robotech illo that and yours truly likewise did for Wildstorm:
*Alas, my recollection of Macross TV-era continuity is hazy (if not wholly nonexistent, given that I never saw the TV version) at best...
**Note also that, arguably, I should've called him "Pretty Deadboy" instead.
If any one is interested the movie staring Lynn Minmei and Lynn Kyle is called "Small White Dragon." A combonation Kung Fu/Action/Morale/Propaganda movie shot on the SDF-1. A army of giant foreign invaders takes over a peaceful Chinese farming village. A young couple is flung into the search for a power to drive off the giants. Lets just say that the movie was not big on subtleties. Oh and Kyle kissed Minmei at least once during the movie sending Rick out of the theater. Ah, love triangles.
Was published here in Brazil too!
I don't believe they were related at all, she just referred to him in that honorific method.
i totally recognized it just by the thumbnail.
"Rock, Paper, Scissiors" is one of my favorites of yours! It's got some of the best artwork with the colors and some of the best lines ... could almost have been written alongside Peter David's works. I believe you and he have the same fun-loving sense of humor!
Robotech was always kinda missin' the kung fu fights, too.
Pretty nice. Reminds me of Star Wars, kinda
Use of heavy contrast black in this is gorgeous. I presume this was after the Star Wars manga covers you were doing? The noses/faces are leaning more toward your current style here.
