I have currently set up a project for myself. As the title says, I'm going to attempt to redesign the characters from Akira. Now there is nothing wrong with the orginal designs at all, just thought it would be a fun excercise to try and get the perfect blend between the eastern and western style of character design. These are my roughs for the "clowns" motorcycle gang. More to come as I progress.

Hey thanks for the feedback Nigel - I needed some fresh eyes to look at that piece. When I'm done I'll prolly bug you again for some more wisdom.

These character designs look really cool - I like your take on them. I've never actually watched an episode of Akira ... yet, but it's on my list of things to watch.

Very cool concepts. I like the attitude of the guy in the middle. These will look great painted.
