    Default Akira

    Hey Guys,

    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.

    Cheers, M

    Thanks guys

    @MadMatt: Nice bike! I tried to stick as close as possible to the design and I really like the leather seat he has (looks quite comfy ) You might wanna put some detail there but otherwise great. Nice shading.

    Realised I had an old stadium lying around that I modelled for a commercial a while ago so I created a background. Need to work on his face because the shader doesn't look good but all in all I'm pretty happy. I'm wondering if the refractions in his windshield should be defocused.... Hmmmm
