Been so busy with various things I haven’t had time to draw but there’s 3 different work in progress pictures at the same time orz. Here’s another one, hopefully I’ll be able to finish this and the others soon.
I went to CTN Expo this weekend and came back with a pretty great art book haul, including this one full of production sketches for the development of the original 1995 Ghost in the Shell movie. This whole book is blowing me away, but here’s a selection of my favorite pages.
This second slice of cheesecake from the DR3 Staff Book features all of the women from Side: Future in the bath. There are lots of details here I think are super cute, like Seiko’s adoring look at Ruruka’s hand, Robo-Gekkogahara scrubbing a leg she’s pulled off of herself, or the way Monomi’s monitor is floating in the water just so she’s included.
Monaca should know better than to bring her portable device into the bath, though.
I apologize for the humungo post, I wanted all the images together in a master post instead of separate installments.
Remember the Jedi Knight Japanese Dictionary I posted about, with the artists Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano? Well, @ciette on tumblr actually purchased the book (so lucky!) and was so kind in letting me see the inside by scanning all the A/P images. I haven’t gotten the book myself yet (I will someday, hopefully) but getting these scans was a major relief as I’m not all over the place wondering what I was missing out on. To top it off, it was right near my birthday; such a great gift! I wanted to post these one the 16th but circumstances made it too difficult. I’m just happy all over. I did my best; ran them through lots of filters, and with some personal touches, I think I just about re-created the look as they are in the book.
