I don't watch a whole lot of anime these days, but there was a time, my friends. There was a time. It's not often that I think about it, but when I saw the anime-inspired artwork of Mike Luckas, I was immediately drawn back to memories of those younger summers where I cared an awful lot about Faye Valentine and Vash the Stampede. It was sort of like getting in that time machine from Back to the Future, except that instead of having to help my parents hook up, I had to confront the fact that I have spent a lot of money on imported Japanese action figures in my lifetime.

But we're getting off track here. The point is, Luckas's art is awesome, whether he's drawing classic anime characters, video game stars like Metroid's Samus Aran, or his own creations. Check out some favorites below!
