5x7 Print- Viewing Transcendence - Kaneda


5x7 Print of my 18x24- Mixed Media/ Acrylic Ink

Hand Painted Kaneda from the classic manga/film Akira. As one of my favorite characters and movie adaptation of a manga I made sure to focus hard on keeping the line clean and strong as it is in the manga. There is a strong contrast between the white and black in this piece. The addition of color for his eyes was for the contrast from the black and white. I first drew it in pencil then went over with sharpie to darken the lines. Once I felt comfortable with the form and details I then used a fine brush to go over with acrylic ink for the black and red.
