B-KO by olo409 B-KO by olo409
Here's a vector illustration of a brilliant girl
with an appetite for settling the score.

When this suit first debuted, I was instantly dumb struck
and realized how fascinating the female form can be when combined with a vicious outfit.

From Katsuhiko Nishijima and Soeishinsha, Studio A.P.P.P.
I present to you B-KO- the vengeful nemesis
from the hit series "Project A-ko"
(Released on June 21, 1986)...think I might be showing my age...hehe

***if you decide to post/link my work on your blog, tumblr, wordpress, etc... can you kindly send me the link?"***

Tech stuff:
Illustrator CS4, vector shapes and gradients, wacom
No rasters, No tracing, No gradient meshes.

Enjoy.

What's the difference between gradient and gradient mesh?

Anyway, she looks great! I especially like how her helmet and body suit turned out.

Outstanding, she really looks sexy and powerful. I'd love to see your take on A-ko as well.

I've been a fan of Project A-ko for a long time too and I run an A-ko website. Since it seems you're OK with having your work reposted, I'm going to add this piece to the fan art gallery.

Hey don't feel bad about showing your age. I love the A-Ko movie, heck I love nearly all the anime that came out around that time. It might be nostalgia but I don't think that most anime today barely compares to those. By the way, I love the whip. It really shows off her controlling personality.

Fantastic pose and coloring! You've really got her drive and power on display, as well as intentionally her ludicrous costume. :) Love that whip!

and that was 90's by the way-- confusing typo time. i'm glad to hear it's just a movie-- getting into a new series is a big investment for me and i always dread i'll get super sucked in and lose track of the other shit of my own i wanna do. :P

and you're welcome!
