CMC is the project that CCP has continued for seven years.
It’s an abbreviation of “CCP Muscular Collection”; the “Kinniku-man Ultimate Muscle” (Muscle Man) figure series with the concept “if a “Chojin” really exists.”
“I will go to Southeast Asia tomorrow with Mr. Yudetamago for an event.”
On the interview day, Mr. Endo seemed to be devoted to preparation for it.
An event inviting the author of Kinniku-man will be held in Southeast Asia, and CCP will also go there and sell their works, I heard.
It seemed that I visited him when he was so busy.
In 2017, the 29th year of the Heisei era, (29 can be read with the same pronunciation as “Niku” (In the Japanese it means “meat”)), many events relating to Kinniku-man are being held. On “Jump plus”, a new serialization started. About this great manga, many people enjoy lovely celebrations.
CCP’s “Ultimate Muscle” figure.
As for the facial expression, it’s just like one from the manga, but the body is very muscular and very real.
The face is one of the manga’s.
But the body is overwhelmingly real.
“But when we merely 3-dimensionalize something 2D, there is a possibility that people will say this isn’t a true Kinniku-man,” Mr. Endo says.
Only changing 2-dimentions to 3-dementions won’t do, I hear.
How amateurish of me, but I have never looked at things like that. Real in a ground plan and real in three dimensions are different… I noticed such an obvious thing for the first time.
To be sure, any impressive illustration should have the drawer’s original tricks implemented skillfully with the greatest care.
For example, by slightly drawing in part of a blind spot that we cannot see in reality, an outstanding drawer always expresses things cool beyond simple realism with his original skill, I presume.
Besides, this is the comics that has been attracting people by drawing powerful fighting.
Naturally there is a special setting.
For realization as an impressive figure, it is natural that we need a new logic and a new trick of molding it.
Being an amateur, I came to realize at length.
We can see Ultraman and Spectreman in special effects drama.
But it is an entirely different thing to change the two-dimensional expressions such as from the comics.
