Akira – the film and the manga series – holds a part of my heart, something that I think many artists can also admit.  It has been almost two decades since I saw Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 animated film.  I remember two distinct feelings from that time.  One, I was blown away.  Two, art can make anything possible.

I decided to do some sketching in the AKIRA universe. My own take on the characters and settings. More to come soon.

Starship breakdown.

I have had a few requests about my process. Here is the starship breakdown. My next one will be  a lot more comprehensive and from the beginning.

Once I modeled the ship in SketchUp. I imported the ship into Keyshot.

I played around with a lot of materials to see what I liked, I knew I wanted a  darker color so the ship felt malevolent. After some playing around I finally settled on the Fiberglass material. I also added a beer material to some of glassy parts.

For the light beam I used a white emissive material, this created a nice reflections on the Fiberglass material.

This was the end of my KS process. I did a TIFF render  and opened the file in Photoshop.

I will let the images do the talking from my PS process.

Hot Pursuit

The Tor-Az triplets come from the wealthy Tor-Az merchant dynasty.  Born in to unimaginable wealth, the three brothers spend their lives seeking thrills.  After experimenting with as many adrenaline-pumping  sports their wealth gave them access to, they decided to try the ultimate rush.  Bounty hunting.

The Tor-Az triplets utilize identical custom designed Manta Starcruisers in their endless pursuit of pleasure and risk.
