Blaster Nakoruru! Never used never published design. Hand painted, I think its paint.

Looks like alcohol-based markers to me based on the pigmentation and bleed through the paper. Very cool stuff.. Shiroi Eiji/Zin Mera has always been my favorite classic SNK artist. I used to hang out with her in Osaka long ago. Thanks for sharing these images.

Funny how this stuff just gets lost and found again. Especially something from this long ago. Excellent find!

Looks like someone was a fan of Dororo. I own all 3 volumes so this stood out immediately.

Bump for the 25 year anniversary. I still haven't gotten around to organizing this thing properly. I'll work on that. In the meantime, we used this image from the folder in the bitmapbook's Neo Geo book.

This is pretty awesome. I am amazed someone would sell this.

The guy just didn't know what it was. Just a rusty folder with a flyer or two in it and some copied art. If he looked close enough he would have found the original sketches and documentation. They were all piled together in maybe 10 or so document sleeves inside the folder. None of his other auctions were anything related, just junk.

Wow this is really cool, can't believe I missed this thread last year.

Another treasure saved by NTM! Looking forward to seeing the rest as you post them.
