The Art of Samurai Champloo


Here you will find examples of some of the original artwork (scanned from production-used photocopies in my collection) used to create the series, plus some scans of actual original Champloo pencil art (w00t!)
More to come soon. Enjoy. =)


A look at the visual evolution of Jin's character design.


[Special note: Amalgam constantly gets search requests for nude art of Fuu. In all these years, I have found exactly one fan art drawing of Fuu in the nude. It's at Saimin's site; from the main page click on the tiny [1] in the right side bar, under "_memolog".
Now find something else to look for, for pete's sake, cos there just isn't any out there.]

(Of course, if you want something from the series, there is this...)
