A little something I put together in the spare bits. I need more technology in my portfolio, I'm perfectly comfortable with cars and guns and such but I really don't do enough of it to show that. You should maybe Download to see this in full-res, there's a lot of fiddly detail.

The composition of this piece got very messy at some point, probably because I'm easily persuaded to put in "one more cool thing" at the expense of clarity. I like most of the bits I ended up with, but the fact that I didn't plan it all out in advance really shows in the uneven layout. Still, I like the general designs, and I had fun with stuff like the dichotomy of the dragons, or the mousiness of the civilian car.

7 logos to find, but one of them is quite badly done... let's say 6 logos and a bonus crap one for the truly dedicated.

Cintiq 21UX, Manga Studio EX v3, ask me any questions you like. No refs were used for anything but the Space Needle, the rest of it is 110% freehanded make-em-up. If something is mechanically questionable, I take the blame.


Daily Dev, no kiddin'!? Thank you! :D

For all the color requests, check out the Download option and you'll see that it's now at 3600x2400. Have fun with it, let me know what you come up with!


Hey look, now it's a print! That's new. I've never sold a print before, but I'm thinking why not already?

On a scale of one to ten, ten being 'last airbender' and one being...I don't know, what are the chances of Hollywood getting 'Akira' right?

I'm not particularly optimistic about the cinematic undertaking....due to the fact it's being helmed by suicidal retards who are casting exactly the worse people possible to play 'Kaneda' and 'Tetsuo', those being (to name a few) Zack Effron, that sparkly kid from Twilight, and Justin Timberlake.

I'm happiest if that project never gets made, at least the way they were discussing it. They probably wouldn't have even gotten the bike right. It sounded like it was shaping up to be another whitewashed "Last Airbender" disaster.

People have told me that the location of the story and the race of the players are irrelevant. A part of me wanted to ask them a simple question: really, so if there was an all asian 'Bladerunner' sequel you'd be okay with that? Or how 'bout an all armenian cast for 'Gattaca'? Or how about a remake of 'Brazil' done by Bollywood?

The only way this movie could even begin to retain accuracy to the original is by being at least r-rated,shot with an almost all asian cast, and be directed by one of the following: david fincher, zack snyder, joss whedon, Terry Gilliam, Ridely Scott or Frank Darabont. Honestly out of those masterful cinematic ass kickers I really think only joss or zack can articulate the tone and harboild exuberance of 'Akira'.
