GHOST IN THE SHELL by DarkCrea GHOST IN THE SHELL by DarkCrea
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE HAHA~
I'm sure most of you have heard of the fantastic movie and series by the same name. Well, i've watched the SAC and a couple of movies, and am planning on going with the rest. There's something very fascinating about them. Not to mention seeing a badass female lead helps a lot.
After watching a few of those and Ergo Proxy i was so desperate to do something inspired by them. It took a while though for things to click into places. 
The soundtracks are brilliant for the series and so with the help of them i came up with this more emotional piece. And of course there's a tattoo too that doesn't actually exist but it gives a nice detail there.  I really wanted to kind of capture the "cinematic anime" feeling in it with. It's pretty simple but i think i got the mood right. :P I hope it looks alright.

So to anybody who have never heard of the animated series nor the movies i suggest to go give them a try.

I like the whole atmosphere and concept to this.
I must say the highlighting of the tattoo with the
light blue is brilliant.

Thank you! i am glad you think so!!

 I had this thought that she got a new body and this one has a tattoo and since she's a cyborg it can actually radiate light, like some sort of a plug in portal for information. I just felt like i need to make some sense into the tattoo since she does not have one in the franchise.

You are most welcome c:.

I actually forgot to mention the title and what you were talking
about in the description. I actually have those anime's :happybounce:
I am very grateful for you taking the time to reply back and giving
me an incite of what you were thinking about and how you wanted
to impose your thoughts in your piece. I am always interested in
what inspires or the drive behind and artist through a certain creation.

The conceptual stuff in those are really good though to some might be quite boring if they aren't into philosophy, but the art style is great, the light in quite some of them is mesmerising. I guess that's one thing why i adore japanese animation. They make the worlds you would want to live in. Not all but a lot of them. 
I wish they had a second season of Ergo Proxy though. I loved that one a lot too.

As for that, it's a thank YOU for taking the time to actually comment! I always want to know what emotions and feelings my works evoke in people. And sometimes when i create, some things i didn't add to the description. It's like "Well it makes sense to me so i guess it will make sense to others too" but that's not usually the case haha~

Oh, I completely agree with you but I don't think one needs to be
into philosophy to enjoy them. You are definitely an intriguing person
to me with what you say. I have watched a few anime's and have
never seen any other persons outlook on them the way you do. If
I could draw I would say they inspire me too with the style as you
stated and oh lighting is something that captivates me deeply. So if
you see my commenting on your work and always talking about the
lighting do excuse me for that haha.
That would have been great if Ergo came out with another season :happybounce:.

Oh, the pleasure is definitely all mine. I do try to comment on the things
I like about a persons artwork. I do admit that sometimes I get lazy and
just fave them lol. BUT, it is a complete joy to know what took you to this
place of creation and what feelings were behind it so thank you for sharing
this amazing piece with everyone to see. LOL, yep not everything that makes
sense to one person will make sense to another. As long as it makes sense
to you the artist that is what matters ^~^.

So before I stop this message, I did have a look around your gallery and
did not see anything but was wondering if you do tutorials? If not it is okay c:.
Have a good weekend :hug:

well the movie for example while was intriguing in the concept and stunning in the artwork didn't have much going on. That's why i'm saying some might be a bit bored. The series, however, have a lot of action mixed in which gets your attention for a longer span of time so that's a plus. 
I don't think there's much fascination in me in terms of how i think, but i always admire stuff that has great control and use of light. Colours do add a lot but the way the light is layered gives the most of the mood at least for me. And actually same for me, the first thing that captures my attention is light and shadows, then comes colours and everything else in artworks, so yeah you're not the only one here haha~

The ending does make space for 2nd season though but they never took that chance it seems. =/

I myself don't really go about commenting either, because i'm analysing way too much or just get plain out mad at myself for not being able to do the stuff on that level lol that gets in my way of commenting lol I do occasionally but it's very rare. I just don't feel like giving two words for a comment, i just don't see a point lol 
i think a lot of people who create stuff they do make up a story to back up the piece, i mean it's much less difficult to get the point across then. Still though i thank people who take time to listen to  the babble, so you're special haha~

as for the tutorials, i've been having thoughts every now and then, but i never really sat down to do one. I wouldn't know what though, plus my stuff usually comes out on a whim, i usually just have a rough idea what i want it to end up though it rarely ends up there, so it's kind of difficult to plan, unless someone gives a suggestion on what they would like to see *shrugs*

have a nice week :)

Oh yeah I like series more than I like the movies. The Movies they have to try and condense a whole season into 90-120 minutes. Unlike a series they have time to build a story and the characters so putting in more of everything works.

LOL, yep I see two words a waste of time as a comment too. Though I do appreciate any comment that I do get.

Haha, I'm special you say for listening. I might become really special then since I rather listen then talk lol. I rather another person talk instead of me trying to hold the conversation going haha.

I think most people end up with something different from what they vision when starting a piece. As far as tutorials go If I made them I would probably go with something that actually was faved a bunch of times. You can always go back through the PSD and do a written tutorial. Though most people like videos I personally rather read. BUT, since I don't make tutorials I can't be picky lol. So I sit through videos every now and again.

You have a great week too :happybounce:
