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

I'm glad you like it!
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
