Yay for ghost in the shell

Listened to the soundtrack almost all the way drawing this piece, too bad Origa's no longer with us :(

Anyways, my photoshop crashed on me losing me some progress on this piece, but I guess it's good because it became better after I re-rendered some portions. Hurray for silver linings!

Most of the fanart of the major out there is with a gun/in combat and such, so I decided to try something different and more emotional in value. Hope you like it!

As always, like my art page on FacebookTwitterTumblr Instagram :happybounce:  much appreciated!

This is beyond awesome! I LOVE the emotion in here, her gaze and the overall colour scheme. Ghost In The Shell ... my favourite animes of all time, movies, series... I own ALL soundtracks, just love it.

I am sad to hear that Origa is no longer with us though.... -___-

Beautiful!  It's altogether too easy to forget that Motoko has an emotional/spiritual side. You've captured her perfectly.

The pose looks like the one Kusanagi takes when waking up at the beginning of the first movie, really nice. You clearly got the spirit of the Major, great work !
