This may look like a black and white manga drawing. But no, it’s a three-dimensional figure with a custom paint job.

Previously, Kotaku profiled Japanese figure maker mumumuno53 (here and here). Those earlier works were in living color, but his latest effort evokes black and white. From nearly every angle, the custom paint job makes the figure appear drawn.

This is a Revoltech collectable of the Powered Armor from the Starship Troopers anime (you can see the original here). Studio Nue did this particular design.
