Akira and Gojira Tribute

I finally got around to creating a parodial tribute of Akira and Godzilla ( Gojira ) based on one of Otomo's famous illustrations of the lead character sitting on a throne from the well known manga. This image has been in my mind for the last few years and I just had to do it because the way their names rhymed was amusing to me. I might not be to others but it was fun way to play around with the words and visuals especially in the levels of destruction that Gojira and Akira are capable of, not to mention Tetsuo.

One can see Tetsuo cussing out Akira for letting it happen, when the irony is it was he who woke up Number 28 ( Akira ), who in turn gets Godzilla ( Gojira's ) attention.  

I knew that Clip Studio Paint ( formerly Manga Studio ) would be the most appropriate tool for this and it worked out well. This is a tribute to my two favorite properties in one setting. 

This image is strictly fan art and is not meant for commercial use or sale. AKIRA is created by Katsuhiro Otomo, originally publishd by Kodansha. Godzilla ( Gojira ) is the property of Toho Company, Ltd.
