Here is a little fanart/tribute to my favorite Miyazaki film. "Porco Rosso".
The theme is... "What if Porco Rosso was about racing... instead of sky pirates?"
Obviously... In order to resemble the film, I used the Savoia S.21's design elements to construct the racing car... And I felt like a criminal changing the design done by Miyazaki San.
Also, for all you gearheads/car freaks out there... please, no comment on how ridiculous the set up of the car is. I admit. This probably is not realistic... and there is no way there was that kind of wishbone suspension setup before WWII era. The point was to make it "look believeable".
I didn't change any design on Porco though... I just gave little more detailed lighting for his shirts and pants. I also tried to keep the air brush tool to minimum for the "Savoia" racing car. In the anime, I believe it was kept to maximum 3 tone cell shaded. Even on the promotional art, they kept the cell painted look all the time. So, I tried to keep the anime look as much as possible.
Still it was a lot of fun doing it.
So, here it is! for all you middle aged anime lovers out there!!!
Many many apologies to Miyazaki San!
