There are so many crappy Japanese cartoons on TV these days accompanied by so many bad fans that sometimes I almost forget there are good ones out there. Trigun
is one of the good ones. Vash the Stampede is a cool character - he's got heart. He doesn't want to kill anyone despite the environment and trouble he's always in.
Drawing Vash in a western style is probably heresy against the church of Otaku, but I don't draw any other way... so there you have it!
