Motoko Close-up by arcipello Motoko Close-up by arcipello
...............PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING COMMENTS..........THANKYOU:)



hey guys...ive been saying for a while that i was gonna do some fan art for the anime series Stand Alone Complex......so i wanted to show you guys a work in progress shot of her head:)


this is a couple of hours worth of work, the main difficulties where getting the face to look how i wanted it to, since im working from my head its somewhat more time costly but none the less more rewarding.

by the time im finished there should be a full on Tachikoma (robo spider-tank) in there for her to sit on........full on homage to Shirow:)

Painter 7

P.S. guys thats a stupid amount of favs for a cropped work in progress!.....cheers:)

Hey dude, I'm searching everywhere for the bigger picture, since this is the cropped version, right? Are you going to re-post it sometime? 'Cause it was really epic -not that any of your other works aren't- you are simply amazing!

Ghost in the Shell is my most favorite anime ever. I love the Major, and the visor reminds me of the Cash Eye episode from 2nd Gig. I really can't get enough of this!
