Akira-Kaneda by diablo2003 Akira-Kaneda by diablo2003
No, your eyes don't deceive you, this is a piece I submitted way back in 2005. I did it originally for fun and it was never used for anything but there was always things I didn't like about it. Recently, I was contacted my the owner of the largest Akira anime cell collection to do an exclusive lithograph for the Akira exhibit he is holding at DragonCon in Atlanta this weekend. I decided to dust this piece off and fix all the things that bothered me about the original. Changes include, hue and color changes, a new head, making Kaneda smaller and completely recoloring him, and adding all the other stickers to the front cowl like in the Akira comic books.
If you would like a copy of the print they will be available at DragonCon (Sept 3-6th) and limited to 100 copies. When they're gone, they're gone.

Hope you dig!

That is freaking awesome. The movie made my stomach churn, but it rocked. I want Kaneda's bike, and Tetsuo's boots.

They're both awesome, and I'd say you did a great job.
