This was done purely out of curiousity to see whether I could re-create possibly the most iconic imagery in Akira; the bikes. Everything about the bikes is just a pure visual treat, especially the way the light comes off of them to show speed.
I'd always wondered how it would look in real life (or at least, on on film) so I just decided to make it myself as close as I could to the real thing.
The main source of reference for this particular shot was this scene: [link]
I truly adore everything about that scene, especially the music. If the remake ever does happen, I will beg The Chemical Brothers to do the soundtrack, because after listening to the Hanna soundtrack it is just too perfect for words.
I'm kind of turning into a unstructered fanboy now, so I'm going to head off. I really do hope you like this!
Just as a heads up, there's some DC stuff heading to you soon! Hopefully I can get my Flash poster done before the week is out!
