AKIRA lives by TaylorGarrity AKIRA lives by TaylorGarrity
AKIRA Commission of Keneda on his bike in the mean streets of Neo-Tokyo. I love this character and am obsessed with the look and overall design of his bike... so it goes without saying that I loved working on this image! Please let me know what you think of it... and can you spot the clown face my wife drew?

11x17" tech-pens, sharpies and pro-white. All characters individual owners.

i think kaneda looks a bit too old for his 15  years here
unless you aged him up to  19   but it looks great otherwise  3  years down the road 

and i have  spotted the clowns head

That's excellent work! The gritty textured look is excellent and really suits the character. (The clown face is good, too!)

I love how this drawing feels like it stains the paper, those thin pencil lines coming together in such grimy fashion.
