The Armour is very simplified, just to make it easy to draw again and again. When it comes to designing armor I like to make it very complicated with lots of little details, so it was hard coming up with a simple but OK looking alternative.
Ew... I hate Inuyasha. It's the same story line every 15 episodes. =/
Way back when, I used to watch a lot of Anime. (Older series, such as Slayers, Angel cop, Bubble gum crisis, macross or tank police) and it started me drawing. I've been trying to get the anime out of my style but it's a hard battle. I would consider myself more fusion or comic based than anime. =P
Due to hordes of idiot fans I don't watch anime any more, or at least not ones brought over here. I watch Japanese TV (love their comedy) and see some anime from time to time- but I only speak basic Japanese so it's hard to follow some times.
