Housei Hogan by JohnSu Housei Hogan by JohnSu
The song that inspired the creation of this picture: [link]

Housei Hogan (砲声ホーガン - "Cannon Roar Hogan") is a nomadic hero who travels across the country, performing valiant deeds and carrying out vigilante justice as part of his life long fight against Assery (which, given its subjective nature, is a bit controversial).

Hogan is also affectionately known as "Cannon Man" by his fans, possibly as an allusion to his powerful cannon-like punch and his explosive battlecry: "DOKKAN!" He relies mainly on the kindess of strangers for food and shelter, though he is also capable of surviving on his own in the open.

Hogan's weakness is loneliness. Whenever he tries to talk to people or even look at them, they cower away in fear, so as a result he doesn't have many friends. There's only one guy with the courage to talk to him face-to-face, but he stands too close and makes Hogan uncomfortable.


Anyhow, designing Hogan was pretty fun, from his six-pack abs to his seat-belt belt. The rest of his outfit is a bit plain, though. In the future I think I will try to add some more detail in my designs, though I will also have to be careful not to make them too "busy."


Hogan's balls are made of iron.

You started a Johnsoon on that link. It's all "I came here because of John Su" and "Ayup, John Su" and "Same Here" and "Who is this guy?"

i'm sorry to say it, but sadly enough it reminds me of something from Bobobo-Bo-Bobobo. Awesome character design.
question though, is the cannon more of a helmet of sorts or is that his actual head o.o"

If Hogan wants to talk to people or look at them face-to-face, he should master Horatio Caine's art of not directly facing other people when talking.

Haha, man, I saw this picture and thought, Yup, something from John Su all right. Awesome character. Does Hogan ever drink from his own soda cans?


Great work.

I am not yet certain as to what purpose those soda cans serve, whether they are a supply of coolant or fuel, or just hold beverages or gastric fluids.

KageRyu798 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
They hold a variety of materials, ranging from gunpowder to actual soda, and can be fired from Hogan's stomach in addition to his head cannon. Unforunately, the materials contained are completely random, so it is never certain what they will do.

That's what I came up with just now. Does that work?

I would rather they remained a mystery, and that they were a sensitive subject and not appropriate conversation material.

And human cannonballs thought they were pretty awesome.

I wonder how many times JohnSu has heard some variant of the above line so far.

Certainly, it would be heavier than your average old run-of-the-mill justice, what with being iron and all.

Manly cannon is manly. And I love that the fuse looks like one of those helmet plumes that soldiers of some countries have on their dress uniforms.

His name is actually a play on 'hougan' (砲丸 - cannon ball)
