Art Trade - M O T O K O by Dtronaustin Art Trade - M O T O K O by Dtronaustin
I finally got to do an art trade with my long time DA friend :iconkisssh0t: :w00t!:

He's an fantastic artist and have a very stylized look to his work so you should check it out! And the art trade he made for me is dope so you can take a look at it here [link]

He requested that I do a Motoko form Ghost in the Shell, which is one of my favorite series(:iconkisssh0t: is also a huge Masamune Shirow nut like myself XD) . I think the last time I tried to paint her was my senior year in High School. Actually I'd really like to dig that one up and look at it. But yeah I remember getting the Intron Depot 1 book in 1993 and seeing my first peek of the GITS series and was already hooked!

As for the painting I wanted the Fuchikoma kind of perving out and trying to grab Motokos bum. In retrospect I should have gone for big air and just had the bot grab her bum. Just a little robot groping a cyborg action :p

Beautiful, alluring, provocative, and may I say crudely, hot. From the beautiful shading on Kusanagi's body to the rivets and cybernetic details on both her and the fuchikoma, I am drawn and hooked to everything. To describe what feeling this artwork evokes is much like my first introduction to GITS all over again. Overall, well done. On an arbitrary note: I agree that it would've been quite a sight to see the fuchikoma actually grope her, but ehh.. c'est la vie.

Naw, I like the "moment before impact". It creates so much tension. :D

I seriously think this is one of the coolest Ghost in the Shell Video Game fanart pieces there is.

Still kind of flabbergasted that you drew the Fuchikoma as well *____*

It only took nearly a year.. but it was worth it//

This reminds me of "Heavy Metal" Magazine of the 1980's!

Man I still love the first Intron Depot book. His digital work is cool but I really miss the days of him painting.

Agreed. I have a few of his old works hanging in my room back at my First ComicCon in 96. From GunSmith Cats and his other works.

Keep them coming man!

Gunsmith Cats is by Kenichi Sonoda, not Shirow Masamune.. Same era though ;>
