ITS AKIRA TIME FUCKERS
Akira (1988) / Key Master Setup (Cels x 9, Original Background + Genga x 2) / 250mm x 350mm
Tetsuo uses his powers to shield Kaneda and himself from SOL’s cannon.
Note: This is my favourite shot in the entire film. It’s also one of the most complex, comprising of nine separate layers of animation.
Akira Production Report (1988) / Line Tests / 24fps ‘On Ones’
Amazing line tests from the ‘Akira Production Report’ documentary. 30 years on, Akira is still the only full-frame hand-animated feature film to adopt such a high frame rate.
Akira (1988) / Key Master Set-Up Multi-Pack / Various Sizes
It’s no secret that one of the very few Japanese animations I like is the 1988 movie Akira, and as such, I’m a big fan of fanart that homages it, from it’s poster
To the very famous bike slide scene!
These kinds of works are my jam!
