Rock Day by maiyeng Rock Day by maiyeng
9th of June, which means it's Rock day~! Tezuka Osamu's Rock Holmes.
I decided to go with the more popular version of Rock, Rokuro Makube from "Vampire".

I recently found out that the guy who provided Makube's voice for the Black Jack ONA series does Knuckles (Yes, Knuckles from Sega's Sonic series), Nobutoshi Canna. XD
I wouldn't have recognized that voice since Knuckles tends to sound angry and yell a lot, whilst Makube is suave. :XD:
The closest you can hear Makube's voice is from this neat little video I found "Can they Sing? Sonic JP Voice Actors"

oh Rock looks awesome as always, did you know about the BlackJack DS Game? Rocku plays a role.

Thank you!
Yes! I've played and completed the game. X3 He plays as Makube rokuro, BJ's childhood friend. But I find it odd that they have BJ call Makube, 'Rock', instead of 'Makube' as he does in the manga. :shrug:

I actually breezed through the game and hardly attempted to read the text (as there's a lot of it). XD;

Rock's motives where very mysterious, but he has helped BJ escape a group of Vampires, but he does play an important role.

You make him so bad-ass. :'D

I still owe you another less-fail drawing of him. Anyway, I love the angle + pose combination. That whip thing suits him, too. This almost looks like it could be a doujinshi cover if you changed the text. 8D

Speaking of which, do you ever plan to make an actual little booklet for sale of your Black Jack comic?

Whoa! Hit the return button but ended up posting a half baked reply! XD;

Thankies, MTP~! I do prefer drawing Rock with a whip, it just makes him so badass. Haa~, it actually could be another doujin cover. :XD:

I thought about this and wasn't really sure if the comic is worthy of print.
A colleague at work suggested that I should try and publish it, but he also said that it would be much cheaper to print if I had more pages.
Who knows, perhaps later in future I might publish an anthology. =)

Ooh, an anthology! It would work especially well if you could find some more experienced artists who are Black Jack fans and would like to contribute, too. C:

Yes! I was actually planning to do that this year! But I've been so busy I haven't even started with the next Black Jack doujinshi yet. XD;
Next year! Next Year!

Hey there! Karmi-Sempai here!

I had no idea there was Rock Day and that he has a whip in Vampires. :?

maiyeng Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
It's not official, but the day was just conjured up by fans. Just a day where ppl draw a Rock fan art. ^^

It's only in Vampire part 2. He uses a whip to punish and train a Weco. But it seems to be pretty iconic, even though Rock's default weapon is a gun.

Oh, I do like this <3 I... Is that a whip?

I was equally surprised to discover that the guy who voices Knuckles in the english dub also did the dub version of the main YGO character... Weird.

Oh yes, it is a whip. :XD:

Professional voice actors has done plenty of voices for cartoon characters. I use to think that hearing Garfield's voice coming out of Peter Vankmen (from Ghostbusters) was weird.
