Kaneda's ride by diablo2003 Kaneda's ride by diablo2003
you ever do a sketch that you plan on doing as a doodle and it ends up taking on it's own personality and causing you to spend WAY more time on it than you planned? This is one of those times. I love Akira and decided to try and draw Kaneda's bike just for the hell of it. Next thing you know I'd draw Kenada as well and colored it complete with digitally painted background. Guess that'll teach me to draw something I'm really into=). You can check out the pencils in my scrap section if you're interested.

I should note that I drew Kaneda in a different style than in the cartoon on purpose. I wanted to go a bit more realistic and the cartoon version was very...well...cartoony. I know he doesn't look exactly 'asian' but then again, neither does the cartoon version=)

Best regards,
-Mark

This is a great drawing, but there's so much red the eye doesn't know where to go, which hurts the final product. If you were to change the background to a cooler color to make the character and bike pop, it would be perfect

Excellent.

Oddly - to my whiskey-sodden eyes- your depiction of Kaneda bears a very strong resemblance to Kyle MacLachlan.

Oh man!!! I'm doing a 3D version of Kaneda Bike, and I'm searching for the same font did you used for the "stadium" in this image. Could you gently tell me the name of the font?

Thanks man!!

Akira is great to begin with. Now I think you should animate your version of it with this style. Very nice.
