JJBA: Dio Brando Phantom Blood by cogdis JJBA: Dio Brando Phantom Blood by cogdis
"Hmm . . . Let me get this straight, Miss.
What you're asking is . . . 'You can take my life but please don't touch the kid.' Is that it?

. . . You're making me cry! OK:
I, Dio, promise that I nor any of them will touch the kid . . ."


~~

Another stolen-straight-from-the-manga composition: [link]
(Except I left out the roses.)

I can totally do my own compositions from scratch, I swear. It just takes thirty times longer than this.

Photoshop. Probably something like 9 hours? It's hard to say, I worked on it on several different nights over several weeks (months?). I forgot I even had it until yesterday. :)

Have you seen the trailer for the new anime?
If not I can send you a link! It looks awesome.

I'm sorry to say but this new JoJo anime could
make you forget any other JoJo anime existed.

So far I would say I recommend it to...

ZA WARUDO!

But thank you for the invite!

Wow what a user name! I like it!

Ah, thank-you of thinking for me! Yeah, I was glued to the press conference when it happened and then spazzing out about it for like 10 hours straight! <3333

STILL SPAZZING :D

no problem. I'm a bit sad that there's not much talk going on.
Well hopefully this anime will get
more people interested (again)

What do you mean not much talk going on? People are hyped on the forums [link] and tumblr kinda exploded [link] about it and it was trending on Twitter . . . A thread for it even got stickied on /a/ for awhile [link] <3333

I keep getting hyped all over again, it's super thrilling! There will be more information in the upcoming ultra jump definitely- but with the arakiJOJO twitter maybe we'll have more news available before then! <3333333

It's true JJBA is still a pretty small fandom english-languagewise . . . But I'm expecting many more fans to show up as well! It's such a great year for jojos! <3333

Well the places I go at least. Of course I probably shouldn't expect much talk of JoJo at a Naruto forum. But there are a few JoJo fans there. And they were JoJo fans BEFORE I was so I thought they would be going crazy. And then I told some people on Youtube but I hadn't heard anything from them. Maybe they already knew? Anywho it's good to see that there IS talk about it.

I think I'm on Volume 15 right now and Episode 2 of the OVA. Is it just me or does Jotaro look a bit TOO manly in the anime? I mean yes the JoJos have a manly appearance but there's always a bit of youth to them. Jotaro doesn't have much youth to him in the old anime OVA.

So are fans called JoJos? Nice. :)

Ha ha, I think everything is "jojos" in jojos! I mean, even poor Dio is "jojos" sometimes.

And yes! There's much talk going on . . . And outloud screaming on skype from time to time. If you're interested in interacting with more JJBA fans you should check out the forums definitely and tumblr probably . . . I think Tumblr is the most active place for the English speaking fandom right now. Although you tend to run into the same people there and on devART and at the forums etc! It's a pretty cozy fandom at the moment. It will be exciting to see what effects these new things have. :D

Ahhh, you're working your way through it quite well! So what have been your favorite moments so far? Do you have a favorite character?

I actually watched the anime before I read the manga and I was like, "Wait, this guy is 17? He looks and sounds 40!" I agree that the older anime missed some of the more youthful essences of Araki's stuff . . . I really hope the upcoming anime captures it. <3 (The game looks AMAZING in that respect! I love the way Jotaro's figure compares to Gyro, I'm so excited <33333)

True. Right now I say he's about 80% JoJos.

I thought about joining forums. But I'm so far behind in the series I want to catch up first so I don't have to worry about spoilers.

Did you ever see the teaser?
I think when they show Jonathan Joestar he has a more youthful appearance. I mean he still looks like he belongs in the NFL but he looks like he's in his prime rather than a veteran.

Plus I love the old school feel.
Well I suppose JoJo IS old school.
Classic really.

One thing I love about JoJo. Chock full of action. Even training arcs are interesting. There really is never a dull moment in this series. One might say it's over the top but then I say that's what shonen is SUPPOSE to do.

Favorite moments?

Dio getting shot and then rising from the dead and punching sucking the blood/energy out of the constables comes to mind.

Favorite Character?
Dio would be too easy.
He's just too Diolicously evil.
But I rather like the Zeppeli
family. They seem to have an underdog vibe to them despite knowing so much. As soon as Caesar Zeppeli was shown I knew he would be cursed to die because of what happened to his grandfather.

I think Jonathan Joestar is my favorite thus far. Though I really like Joseph Joestar too. I enjoy the classic hero of Jonathan Joestar. I think sometimes it's nice to have someone who's just plain and simple a good guy.
Though I like how Joseph has become the badass grandpa character. Jotaro seems a bit uptight to me but he's got skill and confidence and a good heart.

Design wise my favorite is Jolyne Kujo. She's got that badass hotness to her. It's not like other anime heroines who look like some cute chick with armor. She looks like someone you don't wanna mess with while at the same time not looking butch and masculine (some people think she does. I don't see it. Do you?)

D'oh, sorry for the delayed response!

SO ARE YOU ALL CAUGHT UP WITH JJBA NOW??? :D

Have you seen the concept art and production details for the anime? (I don't actually know anything about the people behind it because I don't really keep up with that much anime / manga but so many people are thrilled about Dio's voice actor and that makes me thrilled because he's my big baby <3333)

The Zeppeli's are totally a bittersweet experience. D: It's amazing that you like Jonathan more than Joseph, that's unusual! :D I like that simple sweetness to Jonathan too, I'm so excited to see what he's like in the anime.

People complain that Jolyne got more masculine as time went on, I think. But I didn't really see that . . . Especially since Hermes has a more masculine design! But I really love exactly what you're saying, she looks badass in a very authentic way, it's awesome!

Eee, I really love that scene of Dio coming back as well . . . There's a lot of great horror moments in Phantom Blood and I'm so excited to see it all animated! ♥

Awesome. I finished Phantom Blood not too long ago.
Good stuff. I'm on Chapter 85 of Part 2 now and it's
pretty cool too. But honestly I can't wait more Dio
to return. He's in my opinion the ideal shonen villain.

I felt that way too! But I did warm up to Joseph . . .

I actually started reading the series just for Dio . . . He's my ideal everything ever (If my gallery doesn't already show it, lol.) ♥

Joseph Joestar is awesome! So is Caesar. So sad. I get the feeling anyone with the last name Zeppeli...has a cruel fate.

I also like Wham! Cars and AC/DC.
But they ain't no Dio! ;)

The picture kinda add a bit of scare because of DIO's red eyes,But also because its very well detailed. Man,those zombies are U-G-L-Y. What do you think?

Hey have ever thought of sending your art to Shonen Jump?
It would be cool to see your work in their section of fanart.

cogdis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011
Yeah, Araki seemed to have a lot of fun making some really hideous bad dudes. :D

Oh, I didn't know they had a fanart section! I've never actually seen an issue. Even when they have them up online sometimes, I only read the Jojo stuff, lol.

Araki is very good at making scary scenes! (He's also good at making funny ones and sweet ones and sad ones . . . He's just good at everything, ha ha.)

I'm glad you like it. "Dark" and "Sexy" are two words I'd use to describe Dio by default. :D
