Tetsuko Makes A Splash by DavidCMatthews Tetsuko Makes A Splash by DavidCMatthews
Threw some color onto the drawing I did for 30-day OC Challenge - Day 11

(I actually started this color job before Aleesha Young As Starburst; then the idea for the Starburst pic hit me and I put this aside.)

Glad you did this follow-up to the challenge.  By adding color and your touches (particularly the water sparkles from the splash), this might become a new iconic picture for Tet-chan!  Very well done!

Tet-chan is a flawless specimen of the human race! So much so that I think she's secretly a goddess!

SmithMicro Manga Studio 5 EX. (It's also known as Clip Studio Paint EX, depending on whether you buy the download version (CSP) or the physical-media version (MS). The same program either way. It can be purchased here. End of free plug.)

What inspired you to make the legendary muscle girl known as tetsuko ?

It started with an interest in drawing muscle-women in general, and wanting to do comics about them. So I started creating muscular versions of the classic comics heroines: Leenah of the Lions was my "jungle girl" type, and Satin Steele at first was my "costumed heroine" type (even if her "costume" consisted of just a bikini and cape), and then (I think) Starburst (superheroine) came next.

Then I got introduced to anime in 1987, and an entire new type ("newtype" lol) of comics (and animation) female: the anime/manga babe. So it wasn't long before I started thinking about creating an anime-style muscle-girl.

The final element was James Clavell's epic novel Shōgun. Near the end of the novel (set in medieval Japan, 1600s AD), the warlord Toranaga goes falconing with one of his prized birds, a peregrine falcon whose name was given as "Tetsu-Ko, 'Lady of Iron'." When I further found out that "Tetsuko" was a genuine (if rare) name for Japanese females (the most famous probably being TV host Tetsuko Kuroyanagi), the final piece fell into place: I had a concept - a muscular anime girl - and a name - Tetsuko!
