Well it's been a long time, bla bla. But I've finally been able to finish my Kaneda model with Bike from the Akira movie. I've been in love with that design ever since I've seen it the first time and always vowed to make it into a model one day and here it is. I've taken a still from the movie and really tried to make that into a nice 3D image. It's amazing that these guys did all that in 2D without computers and still managed to be so consisted. And the great thing is that once I converted the image to a 3D model it looked good from all angles. They do know their poses.... Kudos to them!
The hard surface modelling was done in Maya with all of Kaneda, the leather and rocks done in ZBrush. Rendered with Mental Ray.
And here is the image it was based on
