A little sketch featuring Weed, the main character of Ginga Densetsu Weed anime and manga series by Yoshiro Takahashi.

Personally, I don't think Weed is an interesting character. He's just too heroic, moralistic and great leader by nature with little inner conflicts, like some kind of a blue super dog. Still, in a weirdest way, he's quite a lovable derp and has a certain kitsch-value. I can see why he is so liked yet so hated by the audience.

I think everyone hates him because of Jerome.

I mean, Weed was the leader, and, come on, Jerome should respect his decision of not killing anybody. He was just punished for obeying the orders. Which is very tender despite the brutality in the GNG series (which are even more loved by the audience than GNG).


Just personal opinion,

I respect everybody else's <3

This drawing of Weed is really cool, and i agree with you once again. Weed has little to no conflict going on internally which is bad because even GB had something going on with him. Weed, to me, wasn't that developed and was just made to be a pure soul that no one can touch. he's also a bit of a hypocrite, it's okay to kill Kaibutsu but not two guys who tried a few times to kill you? Weed's pureness is needed sometimes in an otherwise gritty show but to have it showed all the time can be grating on the nerves really fast. Still great drawing.

Excellent job with the perspective on this! By making the paws on the hind quarters smaller you give the feeling that he's leaping!

I agree that Weed (who I call Weedo heehe) isn't an interesting character

Oi Weed kuinka inhoankaan sinua. Muistan kun joskus 13 vuotiaana sai vihan kyyneleitä vuodattaa idioottimaisten ratkaisujen takia jota Weeduli teki. Etenkin vihaksi pisti ku alko vänkää Gin:iä vastaa, pikku kakara ansaitsee isän kädestä. Mutta ei voi sanoa että hahmo on huonosti tehty kun se näin voimakkaita tunteita saa aikaan aika monessa ihmisessä? Hieno artti kuiteskin, tyylisi sopii hyvin tähän *nod nod* lempparit on kyl noi korvat. Toivottavasti tulisi lisää Ginga arttia sinulta *nudgenudge winkwink* Riki ja Gin? *nudgenudge*
