Porco Rosso Fanart 01 by torokun Porco Rosso Fanart 01 by torokun
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!

Actually... have a look for the Lancia D50. I'd say what you've done here is pretty feasible.

D50 was its major influence.

Ah, I didn't realise - it didn't mention the D50 in the description so I assumed... well, I'm glad I picked up on it anyways ^^ Excellent work sir.

That's a beast man!
I think the ride looks awesome, and you can take that seriously since I love the movie, and I actually just finished seeing it for the second time :)
It's ageless for me, and will probably stick to my nostalgia dome for the rest of my life - even beyond maybe :D
Only, porco's chin is way rounder than that... and the light makes his skin look a little unnatural...
the only problem I'd have is the lighting I think, it makes everything look a little pale to the sunny contrast of the movie, where there's a more yellow and warm atmosphere. But the whole ride, the mechanisms etc. look real cool and somewhat realistic too. I understand that you didn't put the engine uptop, and why you put those side thingy's of the engine besides the car in a stylish manner, but shouldn't they sit next to the engine? further ahead?
Oh, and you could've added Fio too, and her entrance. They are partner, right?
You've done great work, and I'm glad to be able to see it :)
