Steve Oliff on Coloring AKIRA
In 1989, veteran colorist Steve Oliff was personally selected by Katsuhiro Otomo to color his seminal manga, AKIRA. This video documents their working relationship, including Otomo’s trip to Point Arena, CA to collaborate with Steve on developing the color scheme.
Steve Oliff hand-painted every page of AKIRA, using some combination of airbrush, gouache, water marker, colored pencil and Pantone film. Also, Oliff often placed highlights that are not visible in the original manga (See Image Above).
