This is Colored version of the line art I uploaded yesterday. Overall the painting is done using solid colors added in layers, except for the lights (headlights, tail lights and console lights). For those lights I used the outer glow Layer style. I will at a later point actually add a background and add other elements to it, but that will be at a future date.
While looking through my references I came upon one of the Akira Bike, the details were a bit different from the anime version (I’m glad I decided to look at other references before committing to the design in the ad). Looking at figure reproductions, real life versions of the bike it seems that they all stray away from the animated version a bit. Looking at all the designs and the one used in the manga, it seems I have also created a slightly different variant as well.
When I finished the inking process I noticed that I made the hind tire a little too large so I had to edit it digitally.
