Illustration of Satan (Devilman) by Takeshi Obata

This drawing was included in the art book ‘Illustrations of Devilman’ published in 1999 by Kodansha, as part of an event that began in 1996 to honor Devilman creator Go Nagai. Famous illustrators and artists were invited to submit fan art of Devilman and this was Obata’s submission [press link in the source]. Of note, Obata says in How to Read that the design of L from Death Note was partially inspired by Akira Fudou in Devilman, particularly L’s eye bags.
