I draw comics, ride bikes, and eat melon; sometimes simultaneously.

TRDL 2019 Series No. 19 - Motoko Kusanagi [The Major]

I love Masamune Shirow, and while Appleseed has always been my favorite, Ghost in the Shell is a strong second. I grew up learning how to draw tech from him... and of course female pilots in strange skintight bodysuits. As I got older, some of the details started to get a bit unsettling, but the broad strokes I still enjoy. This piece of Motoko Kusanagi, The Major, was done some years back, after I had done three commissions in a row featuring her in her less clothed looks, so i wanted to capture the more paramilitary/SWAT vibe of this version. Rationalizing hair when drawing manga or anime characters in my style is often the hardest part. I had fun with it, though.
