Here's a poster I just finished for an upcoming roller derby series. The brief was post-apocalyptic Wellington with tough chicks on rollerskates. I was gonna draw that anyway!
I did it originally in black and white and tried to do it real Akira-style. I quickly realised I was no Otomo-san and reverted to my olde wobbly hand technique. I still snuck Kaneda's bike in there amongst the rubble though. I got lil' CJ from District 9 in there too but you probably can't see him at this resolution.
Once it was finished I got word that they wanted it in colour so I did this quick hack-job. Should be a fun show, chicks in skirts roughing each other up while dudes holler and drink beer? I'll see you there!
