Minna! I am working on a series of father/father figure pics of Anime/Manga heroes who have or had a strong male influence on how they became themselves. Now, I'm not looking for necessarily biological fathers or even father figures who were their during the heroes formative years, but a male influence who had a significant parental role in placing the hero on the right track. (even when that involves declaring war on the government *coughLuffycough*)
Pairs I have so far (the ones with the strike through have been drawn already):
Kurosaki Ichigo and Isshin - Bleach Zeff and Sanji - One Piece Monkey D. Luffy and Garp - One Piece Rorono Zoro and Sensei Koshiro - One Piece
Ginrei and Byakuya Kuchiki - Bleach
Son Gohan ("Grampa Gohan") and Goku - Dragon Ball Z
Cutty Flam and Tom - One Piece
Tony Tony Chopper and Dr. Hiriluk - One Piece
Usopp and Yassop - One Piece
Kyoraku Shunsui and Yamamoto Genryuusai - Bleach
Ishida Uryuu and Ryuuken - Bleach
(Future)Son Gohan and (Future)Trunks - Dragon Ball Z
Kenshin Himura and Sensei Hiko Seijuro XIII - Rurouni Kenshin
Meta Knight and Kirby - Kirby Series
As you can see it's all very lop-sided towards 2 mangas. So, any help you can give would be great. Other anime/manga I can think of but can't find the right kind of pairing are: Ruroni Kenshin, Yugi-OH, Full Metal Alchemist, Hellsing, Cowboy Bebop, Tenchi Muyo, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Trigun, but it's been so long since I've seen most of these that while I remember the heroes I no longer remember their backstories too well. I could go look them up, BUT where's the fun for you all??? I want you guys to tell me what you want to see.
They'll look like this:
And when all is said and done, and I get my tablet back I will be coloring them. I hope to have the whole set done by Father's Day 2013. So, let me know, minna!
