The great thing about your artwork is that it perfectly meshes the outlandishness of those classic tokusatsu shows and movies and adds a very whimsical, light hearted quality to it that feels like seeing these things through the eyes of a child (if that makes any sense whatsoever). This is great stuff. If you're not doing this professionally, you darn well ought to be.

This was the first Ultra episode I ever saw as a kid. I remember waking up super early in the morning and catching his first episode on TNT. I remember just being floored and in total awe when I saw this monster. Still do to this day. I love the presense you give him :) and the little added joke with the human yelling out "king what!?"

In America, they use to air "Ultra Seven" really early in the morning during the 1990's, on a cable station called TNT. And me and my brothers loved the show, even to this very day.

When we had a water pool, we'd recreate the famous Kobe Bay battle, with child me playing King Joe, or the Roadon Robot at he was called in the English dubbing. I loved making the 'WONK' sounds while walking, and fought my younger brother Miguel, who was always Ultra Seven.

I'm an adult now, but King Joe is still one of my all time favorite 'Mecha Kaiju', and your artwork is amazing as usual!
