Akira!

[Lopez]

Hello out there. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! During the holiday I had a chance to work on a commision for a friend, Jon Bolerjack, that I wanted to share with you.

This is Tetsuo and Kaneda from AKIRA, in case you were unfamiliar with the characters. This is a little different from the other toned paper sketches, the difference being just a little more color. I am a huge lover of graffitti-and when I get a chance to throw in that influence, I absolutely do not pass up that opprotunity.

Also thanks to everyone who commented on my last posting. Sorry, I am still learning to reply to your comments now.

That's all for now, see ya.

Hi there,

Another amazing artwork! So impressed.

I know I've asked before (and hope you don't mind me asking again), but I'm really curious to know the medium / technique you use. It's so striking. Inks? Paint? Markers? Pastels?

Whatever it is, it really works!

Cheers.

hi there, thanks to all for posting your comments. the medium i used here is a combo of sharpie and colored pencil. the paper is your standard toned paper, thats it. pretty simple.

This is incredibly sick. Sick in a great way, o' course. Looks like it should be a special edition DVD or CD soundtrack cover.

Peace...
