SAKANA 4 by MyNameIsMad SAKANA 4 by MyNameIsMad
Uploading a few hours early because I have some homework I SHOULD be getting to. :I



With Taro I wanted to create a character who was adorable and creepy at the same time, but I think I mostly succeeded in making him look like an especially hairy woman. I guess I should address that in a later strip.

also HUGE EYES. Taro's glasses give a whole new meaning to "coke bottle".

And here's some more pictures!

I think you succeeded. He's adorable... and terrifying. Kind of like those animals in the zoo you'd like to go up and hug but you know they'd claw your lungs out?

He doesn't look like a hairy woman. XD He looks like a nice guy who loves his freaky job a lot.

I love his uber huge eyes when he's got his glasses.

I wouldn't say that he looks like a woman. But then, I've gotten used to an overabundance of feminine-looking men, so my judgment is probably not the best.

That being said, I love the last panel. xD

Odd question: Do you hand-letter, or do you use a digital font? (Great job, btw. Hairy lady = XD)

Wow, that's really great lettering. I mean it, some publishers would kill for lettering like yours. ;)

So much carnage in this comic. I think his look is pretty unique, kinda masculine and feminine at the same time. He seems right at home surrounded by all that gore.

Pfft. Hairy woman. Now that's all I'll be able to see.

It reminds me of China Town, New York, where the aisles were barely wider than one's shoulders and live seafood markets were as common as those for produce.
The sweet Chinese cashier ladies all had a good smile at the crazy white girl running around the live fish and squeeing over gross stuff like it was magical.

You've succeeded in making Taro live up to his first impression.

For that you are now my favorite cartoonist on DA.
