Ghost in the Shell - Engage by Hideyoshi Ghost in the Shell - Engage by Hideyoshi
So I finally did a GITS fanart! Tried to put in more effort for this piece because this anime has influenced me hugely over the years.
Overall I think it turned out well but I am sure the anatomy has some issues here and there.. might fix them up with the help of some feedback. I actually saved steps for this, might upload them some time.
Looked at pics for design accuracy, initially I wanted Motoko to look more like in the first movie (still my fave by far) but went with the SAC outfit then.
The gun is a Seburo C-X, sorry- no Tachikoma & folks in here..
Worked on this over 2 afternoons.
I will make a print available for this later!
Hope you enjoy and I could make some fans happy! :)

Ghost in the Shell (C) - Shirow Masamune

edit: Not sure if it's better now, but I made some changes for her pose/anatomy.

Oddly, the only thing that really bothers me is how Motoko is holding her gun. Sorry, but Motoko isn't gangsta XD

Hey man, Im a big fan of the visual style\presentation of GITS too. This picture looks good as a whole but details are a bit off. Anatomy is all well and good though not the best it can be but the face and its expression is where its going wrong.

Suggestions from my side would be: The head looks a bit big, the expression: I cant really place what its about and to be honest it makes motoko look old. Lips look bigger than needed + lipstick not the best choice...maybe a lipgloss effect would look better.

The rest is fine. Good work.

*w* I think I'm going to cheer now, since I think you really did this moment serious justice, especially with the sense of action and that cord and the gun...so beautiful, this work of yours, portraying the darks with the lights giving it such sense of depth and the feeling of motion.

It is an anime which at least remains apart from the stereotypes of the so many. I respect it and also love it.

Could you show the steps you went through? That would help.

To make it more like the Shirow Masamune's style, I think attention to the muscular structure is the biggest thing. He bordered on realism and kept facial aspects a bit simpler so it remained anime. That is best I can describe it. Also, Motoko's hair was black in the original movies and not as stylized as in SAC.
Overall, you have done a amazing job with what you have!

The right arm definitely looks better. I think I liked the right foot better in the original. That said, I didn't notice until I examined them for a couple of minutes. Love the piece just as much now as I did before. =D

Thumb looks awesome man, but maybe you could invest some time in working on your materials? All the surfaces kinda look the same, your images would profit tremendously from some love in that area!


I actually like the SAC outfit ö.ö

Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
hm, true! Material rendering is something I could learn more about, never really did that. Any crits on the anatomy?
Lol, I learned to love the SAC outfit while working on this :P

Materials are kinda underrated in general, everyone talks about brushes and "matting" (using photo parts doesn't sound as cool), but when it comes to understanding how surfaces reflect light in different ways, it seems people don't really think too much about it ö_ö Which is a shame because it can really give a lot of credibility, as you see with (good) 3D images.
Not really an expert on anatomy myself D: But I think it looks a bit too simplified, you know all straight without much of the bodily forms articulated, for example if you look at the thighs there's pretty much only a cone, while in reality they're curved and don't quite go in a straight line either, they have thicker and thinner bits and so on, bla bla bla, some studies will fix that! :la:

Anyways you probably know all that, keep rocking dood! :la:
