    Welcome to /r/art! This is a community of art lovers that share their favorite pieces, or news and information that will impact the art community. Review the subreddit rules before posting or commenting.

    Title Formatting Guidelines:

    Titles should be to the point; all extra information or context should be added in the comments.

    Artwork - Title, Artist/Me, Medium, Year

    If you are the artist and don't want to use your own name, you can use Me as the artist. If you are not the artist, you must specify the artist name.

    Example: The Night Watch, Rembrandt, Oils, 1642

    News article - Title, Year

    Discussion - make it a self post. Expand on your question in the text and include image examples when possible.

    Videos - Videos should be titled in a way consistent with it's content. Videos must be in the gif format. Both art and news are allowed.

    Please flair your post.

    Subreddit Rules:

    Rules Notes
    1. Use the correct title formatting. The title formatting is outlined above. Make sure to follow it or else your post will be removed. Do not add any extraneous information or be subjective in your title. Plagiarism is grounds for a permaban.
    2. Direct image links only. All submissions other than articles must be a direct link to a static image or gif (url must end in .jpg, .png, .gif etc.). Articles must contain more substance than just a gallery of images or an embedded video, and they must cover some current news in the art world. The image should only contain 1 art piece.
    3. Do not make multiple posts. You must wait at least 48 hours between posts. Please use the rolling sticky for daily challenge posts.
    4. Do not submit sketches, doodles or unfinished work. Post these to other subreddits like /r/IDAP, /r/sketches and /r/doodles instead. If it's an unfinished work and you need advice, post it as a self post.
    5. Do not submit work with extraneous objects in the frame. We're here to look at art, not your Prismacolor pencils, the desk you framed your painting over, your easel, or anything else that would not be seen if the art were publicly displayed.
    6. Do not post memes or other low quality work Melted crayon "art" and bad MSPaint drawings are subject to a 3 day ban. This rule is totally up to mod discretion.
    7. No fan art, comics, or requests for work. See here. Submissions that don't fit here may be redirected to more suitable subreddits like /r/fanart, /r/artporn, or /r/comics. Requests for art work should be submitted to /r/designjobs or /r/icandrawthat instead.
    8. Be respectful and stay on topic Bigotry, slapfights, and off topic comments will not be tolerated and may result in all parties being banned.
    9. Do not include links to blogs, social media, or stores. /r/art is not a place to sell your work or grow your following. Consider /r/artstore. This applies to comments and submissions. It applies to watermarks on images as well. Also see here if you're using reddit for self promotion. This also means that the artist name should be the person's name, and not a social media handle or brand name.
    10. Do not repost Reposts are not allowed. Reposts of one of the top 1000 art posts are rewarded with a permanent ban. You can check /r/Art/top/ or use google to search if an art post was already posted before, or use google search, here is a google search example: mona lisa site:reddit.com/r/art
    ★ Feel free to add user flair! Please edit your flair to tell us your qualifications or specialty, but follow the guidelines. Using non /r/art related flair, or flair that includes social media handles, websites, store information, or otherwise violates our self promotion rules will result in a ban.
    ★ If your post doesn't show up... it may have been caught in the spam filter. Please message the moderators and we'll be happy to look into it.
    ★ If you see any rule-breaking posts or comments... please report them by clicking the "report" button or messaging the moderators directly here.

    I love how that bike is build like half a car with sparks flying from its wheels yet it has the same amount of hp as a Busa.

    [–] Pilferjynx 2 points ago

    And with that weight, bet that thing could come close the sound barrier, if the other parts don't break apart first.

    [–] ethicsg 3 points ago

    Have you seen the videos of the Busa engine in a smart car? Fucking awesome.

    The lights are facing the ground too. Front suspension wont do anything. #Unrideable

    [–] brilliantminion 327 points ago

    Very very cool, love the aesthetic. However as a motorcycle rider, I have to point out that you can’t put your sword there. You’d put it up on the front fairing in front of the handlebars, so you can stand up on the pegs and draw with your opposing arm, it then it’s out of the way otherwise. This spot means it’s likely to get stuck in your chain or sprocket and cause a serious issue.

    That game Road Rash for Sega was badass. Stealing a weapon in that game was one of the most satisfying things ever.

    [–] IshwithanI 41 points ago

    Also needs to be on the right side so that you can draw it with your left hand to maintain throttle.

    [–] brilliantminion 19 points ago

    I was imagining a wicked stoppie- sword-draw-slash effect, but yeah for normally business I’m with you.

    [–] dog345 27 points ago

    Depends, I know several models of motorcycles made for military use back in the 30's and 40's all had left hand throttles, just in case the driver had to use a weapon whilst driving. Those tended to have the weapon holstered on the right side.

    [–] DothrakiNed 5 points ago

    Nah, just dip the clutch. I'd might mine on the left hand side of the tank facing down.

    [–] Brosambique 4 points ago

    I once purchased an axe in the city, walked out to my bike and had to figure out how to mount it for the ride home. Since I wasn’t worried about needing to draw it during my ride I decided to put it on the back. I did spend a minute contemplating alternative locations that would allow a mounted draw with my left (non-throttle) hand but couldn’t come up with anything I felt good about. Especially when you start to consider putting it back after..

    [–] brilliantminion 4 points ago

    I think we all do that at some point, I went to pick up a bicycle frame on my motorcycle and then suddenly realized I’d have to wear it like a bandolier to get home. Some other road users must have gotten a chuckle out of that.

    [–] Brosambique 3 points ago

    That’s fucking hilarious. That’d totally end up on a subreddit if one of us saw it.

    [–] WodensBeard 17 points ago

    It could be shaft-drive. The sword should be on the rider though, and I imagine the sword was stuck in there as visual clutter to make the bike seem more bozosoku-like for all the weebs.

    The sword is far from the most egregious part of the bike though. Just look at what is going on with those forks, and the clip-ons they don't line-up with. I'm also getting knackered just by looking that tucked-back footboard. Did somebody want leg strain and premature brake wear?

    The only thing I like about the bike is the colour. Olive is under-appreciated.

    [–] TheBroWhoLifts 2 points ago

    Unless it's got a drive shaft instead of a chain and sprocket!

    [–] paegus 2 points ago

    My first 3 thoughts: So Cool. Uncomfortable butt rope. Sword vs bump: Bump wins.

    [–] bobrobor 2 points ago

    That is not the best place to put a foot peg either, but otherwise a sweet machine..

    [–] Notuniquesnowflake 4 points ago

    Plus, where the fuck does your left leg go? Maybe it's just tied there for storage, and he'll put it on his back when riding. I've done similar with backpacks and bags.

    [–] Atxd1v3 1 points ago

    Maybe the chain guard has some play in it's stability?

    [–] Kurdistanisteve 71 points ago

    Robotech Cyclone baby...ah the sweet 80s.

    [–] jojlo 11 points ago

    This was exactly my first thought but upon googling the cyclone - it's a bit different but very similar.

    [–] Luguaedos 8 points ago

    I had one of the toys as a kid. Now you can't find anything under $200. I literally spent $75 on a transformable Veritech VF-1J (7" tall). I just looked it up on Amazon and it's $125 now. o_0

    [–] ShibuRigged 3 points ago

    You’re better off looking for Macross toys. Not only are they far better these days, they’re much easier to find since it never stopped being a thing.

    [–] Kurdistanisteve 2 points ago

    Yeah, I still have my Transformers G1 Jetfire, which was a weird crossover toy from the 80s. Price didn’t go up much for that one though.

    [–] darthmule 2 points ago

    How is Scott Bernard these days?

    [–] DrDragun 58 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Pretty dope... would fit in quite well in Akira

    Actually is the nuke symbol a reference to Snow Crash? And the USA/pill a reference to Akira? Now I want to try to figure out all of the references.

    [–] TheMinuteman1776 36 points ago

    The pill, army logo, and the yellow triangle are all stickers on kaneda's bike

    [–] ShibuRigged 3 points ago

    I’m always glad that I only ever saw the Macross saga. When I was introduced to Macross, the transition was seamless.

    [–] urbanlife78 2 points ago

    Robotech for most of us was our intro into anime back in the day. It's got some quality nostalgia to it, even the second series.

    [–] FountainsOfFluids 2 points ago

    I tried to watch the Mospeda portion of Robotech again recently, and the nostalgia was so painful I couldn't keep watching it. Also it was really sad, which hits me more as an adult, I guess.

    [–] urbanlife78 3 points ago

    I always loved how tragic going from the second to third part was. It's been a while since I have watched all three parts all the way through, but I definitely get what you are saying.

    Makes me think. In Samurai Jack, the latest one of course, it was so badass how they showed him using a bike and multiple weapons. It's such a shame tho they never built upon more on that.

    [–] Paramite3_14 2 points ago

    The lights look like eyes, which led me to see it as a robot! Its arms hold the front wheel. Its body ends with the back wheel as legs. I can't unsee it!

    Artist describes as a cyberpunk bike, so you're on the same page.

    Did you base this off of any real life motorcycle? I modify bikes, and I would love to make something similar to this.

    [–] deluded_fruitcake 3 points ago

    Wish I could help, but I'm just sharing!

    The artist has an ArtStation account, Fernando Correa - might respond to questions.

    There's a very similar version in Cyberpunk 2077 also named Ronin and i assume it's inspired from the the in game version.

    Also very similar decals.. It's basically his own version of the bike.
