Here are some speed paint photo-bash studies of the espers and I started and idea on the military special forces unit but did not get too far. I just watched the movie recently and got inspired to paint for no reason.
Akira was one of my favorite cartoons growing up... but I just mainly watched the last part and the bike chase coz the rest of the movie was boring as hell.. lol, I was a kid, I just wanted to see the action parts. But as I grew older I started paying attention to all of the movie and start noticing all the overall design and story that makes this movies special. I had the same experience with Stanley Kubrick's "2001" and Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner". I liked them as a kid but I started to appreciate them more when I got older.

I am planning to also have some prints available and hopefully some play-mats with printed MTG art.
If I can get some recommendations.. which card art do you think I should make into a poster or play-mat?

Some quick B/W studies and I tried some z-brush into my process for the final image .
The good thing about doing the z-brush model is that I did not have to struggle so much with the overlaps and the perspective of the head's angle, but since I did not finish sculpting the legs I struggled with that (lol). All in all this was a really quick turnaround (for me anyway). 1.5 hours sculpting and 3 hours trying to decide on what shape that lightning should be .. aargh lol
MTG card info can be found here

Inspired by the man thing / swamp thing , I first saw him when I was 4 I think. He was one of the first comic book characters I remember that I liked.... Incredible hulk and the X-men were also introduced to me at that time.
