Sketch: 1 Matching
Background: Original Matching
Here's a simply perfect look at Bancoran's grandfather, reputedly a pirate of some sort. Looks obviously ran in the family!
I was drawn to this show because it's a complete riot and very campy. But the "Bancoran" look is so clearly one of the early progenitors of the "beautiful bishie" type! The pointed chin, the sultry eyes and stern expression resonate through decades, now, of shows that followed. What's especially interesting is that in my celbook, Patalliro is followed by my lone Petshop of Horrors cel of Count D. The resemblance is startling (and very pleasing!). There are even echoes of this guy in Vampire Hunter D's killer looks and dark appearance.
