Kaneda by paperfetish Kaneda by paperfetish
This piece is very old. I hadn't planned on posting it, but decided to post it as a part of Traditional Day.

The piece is 5x5" and is made from 1 ply white museum board. The image is of Kaneda on his motorcycle from Akira. I did this piece not too long after completing the Priss sculpture ([link]).

I was still learning and there are many things I would change if I did this piece over (primarily, I think I would do it in color and I would have done some texture on the tire.), but I do like it and loved the movie as well. I'm not sure if it can be seen, but I did put a wind shield on the bike. It is plastic and may not show up well in the photo.


Character and original art by Katsuhiro Otomo

Thanks! This piece is very old. I'd approach it in a different way these days.

One of my fav animes of all time. Love the highlight for the windshield, great touch.

Thanks! The windshield is actually made of plastic, so that highlight is actually real as opposed to being constructed with paper.

Wow, I didn't even realize, I thought you had used water or some other liquid to affect the color of the paper slightly. Still amazing thought : D

Thanks!  I like to try different techniques and materials sometimes, but generally end up with just using paper.

Thank you. I keep meaning to redo this in color one of these days, but there never seems to be enough time.
