The Spiral King


I noticed that there wasn't much TTGL fanart on Newgrounds. So thanks to the attention that I got from the Cosmic Break contest I got commissioned to do this piece of Lord Genome. Enjoy!

I noticed you may have scanned in the hairy dude because of the white dots around him besides the few minor flawes, it's a beautiful piece of art.;)

shinkakakumei responds:

Yeah. The piece was actually two illustrations I merged into one. I liked how my first illustration of Lazengann turned out so I drew Genome after. I didn't completely clean the image since this request had a tight deadline and the requestee wanted it done ASAP. I'm not normally sloppy, but I should try to clean up my works more often >_<

The lineart and WIP of it is here in my Cosmic Break art thread.

I like it XD

I don't know what TTGL is but the Mecha thingy reminds me a ton of Evangelion. But yeah I still like the character designs. Umm lets see critique. The backgrounds looks out of place with the rest of the drawing and the lineArt seems a tad bit sloppy. And there is also some white dots around the hairy dude that could be fixed. But yeah the drawing as a whole is nicely done XD. I do like it. Good job man XD

shinkakakumei responds:

I was trying to emulate one of the Parallel Works style of the series. And this particular anime is done by Gainax. Yeah I just noticed the white spots on the larger resolution, but I shrunk it down for the requestee on another board I frequent so they weren't noticeable. Again I appreciate your critiques. It helps encourages this old man who gave up drawing for close to a decade.

I highly suggest watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The background will make sense once you watch it, and why the antagonist Lord Genome is referred to as the Spiral/Helix King.


How Ironic on how I was watching Gurren Lagann today. I havent gotten back up to the helix king yet. But he is quite the badass!

shinkakakumei responds:

Oh Genome gets more epic, especially in the extended parts of the TTGL movies. Thank you for the rating.
