AKIRA - Akira - Fan film


#29

Main character 98% done.

Need to work more on blend shapes to have stronger expressions. And probably a set of blend shape for the face with and without the glasses to avoid penetration in it.

here is some render low quality for the blendshapes have made

looking at something

Animation test to test my car rig.

ps: it’s been 3 years I didn’t do animation so, it’s pretty hard haha.

#31

Another animation test for the car. More complex this time:

#32

Test about the artistic direction I want to have for the movie. A lil’ bit of spiderverse in it, at least, I try :wink:


#33

Another color test. I will probably use it for the chase scenes.

again, it’s just ideas and of course not a final look.


#34

Still working on stylized rendering of the movie.

Beside, i’m working on the tunnel sequence, soon to come :sunglasses:

sketch pass:


#35

Another test, slightly different, but better !

Here the shader i made in order to have this kind of effect:


#36

Big WIP of the tunnel sequence. Still working on atmosphere, film effects and compositing .

Next, I will have to find how I can make this kind of light effect:


#37

Wow amazing! Love it!


#38

First animation test with the tunnel scene.
What do you think ?

Animation time!

I started some animation in one of the multiple action sequences of the movie.

Crossroad accident.

Check it out: https://vimeo.com/380556942

The last past weeks, i’ve been a little bit busy making the sequence N°2 of the movie: the street chase.

It was very challenging to me because I’m not very comfortable with animation … I did my best while doing it quickly, so, finals animations will be better, I hope haha

Enough teasing, here is the link to the video:

Tell me what do you think!

News time!

I’ve been working on the new face of the main character this past days.

So, I’m more into a cartoon than a realistic face, It will fit better the overall artistic direction of the whole movie.

Still some small things to do on the face but 90% is here.

Now, I have cloth to do again.


#43

New work on the main character.

I changed the eyes shader, hair style, skin color, fixed clothes from the previous version (modeling and textures), finished hands, …

Here is a poster, I don’t want to post 15 images here so check out the artstation link to see more pictures:

#44

More fixes on the face to get more close to the original character. This version is much better right?


#45

Concpet for the next character who will be visible in the first sequence. He’s a mysterious guy, nobody knows him.

which one do you prefer?


#46

Here is the concept i’m working on for this bad guy:


#48

Hi! I think i like the first one better, he looks like a tourist so I think it could fit the character of being mysterious. The second one I like would be the third one but without the hat it’s less mysterious for me and just seems like a random dude. Cheers!


#49

Hi guys,

I’m taking a break on this project for personal reason.

I don’t give up, stay tuned ! :slight_smile:


#50

I’m back to the project guys !

I’ve been working on the Kaneda’s head last days … this is damn hard to recreate 2D manga faces in 3D, to get the thing that we recognize one character to another one …

So here is the new face i did, with the body and all effects. I need to do hair later, which will be another big thing because they become a mesh and not hair fibers to achieve anime animation like I want.
