Inspector Zenigata by RedBlooper Inspector Zenigata by RedBlooper
I couldn't draw at all yesterday, so to get out of that rut, I decided to sketch Inspector Zenigata from Lupin III.

I've been dabbing into the Lupin III anime series for a while now, and I gotta say, I love the characters in it! All the male characters have their own unique features, both visually and personality-wise, and they're always in crazy situations with tons of humor and physical comedy. The only problem with it is the constant fanservice and sexual humor (mostly from the supporting female character, Fujiko). I can't stand it! Oh well, at least I can like the characters from afar and enjoy my favorite Lupin III movie The Castle of Cagloistro, which was very cool to watch (and surprisingly fan service-free!).

Only Monkey Punch himself could capture Zenigata's essence better.  Bravo!

Zenigata is my favorite C:

Aaaw yes, the fanservice schtick grates on me as well. Which is a shame because when Fujiko is treated like an actual character, she's actually pretty cool. But that's only about 8% of the time.. :/

Even though I havent seen any anime of Lupin the 3rd, I will say you have done well with this character. Is the series any good?

Thank you for your comment!

Well, from a neutral viewpoint, the whole series is pretty cool, and it's pretty consistent throughout all the tv specials and movies and different directors and such. But in my opinion, most of the series is virtually unwatchable, mainly due to all the fan service and stuff like that. It's just a little pet peeve I have. I've only been able to watch the movie 'The Castle of Cagliostro' (which I highly recommend by the way ;)), and I've gotta do a little digging to see if there are any episodes of the old tv series I can see. But overall, the series is pretty cool, and the characters are super fun to watch!

Hayao Miyazaki (who directed Castle of Cagliostro) also directed a few television episodes, but I haven't seen them.  From one still I saw, there's a robot that has the same design as the ones in Laputa.
