Here is another homage to one of my favorite films Akira. This time its the character Kaneda. This piece was a total pain in the ass the whole time I worked on it. I find it incredibly difficult to hold that line between fan art and creating my own vision. I am such a big fan of Otomo’s work that I don’t want to just replicate his style but bring my own sense of things but not push to far away from the world it was created. Sound fussy? It really is. Another challenge I had was creating the likeness and attitude that he brings to the comic. He has a certain demeanor that is very strong but can be hard to capture unless you find those subtle cues and accent them.
Anyways. It was a total challenge with this one but I am happy I stuck with it and figured it out. To me my work is never finished but I just decided that its time is up and move along to the next challenge.
Until next time…
Here is a work in progress for a shot I have had in my mind of Major Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell. Its a depiction of one of my favorite moments in the film. I expanded upon it and took my own creative license with some of the consistencies but having fun with this one regardless.
To me these are my favorite times while I create. While its loose, and filled with energy. I enjoy the other stages but not nearly as much as this is almost when the art has a bit of innocence to it that reads and feels stronger then the final with out even trying.
Here are some higher res bits from one concept for the title design in Iron Man 3. Here are the rest on my site, www.ashthorp.com
