Evil cyborg octopus thing. Came out way more cartoonish than what I had pictured in my head but I figured I'd post it up anyway.
Recon bird.
It's a bug instead of an animal, but I like the way it came out. 

Cyber Monkey 1-1

Alright, well this isn't as cybernetic as it could be.  It's supposed to be a cybernetic, humanoid monkey. The background and sketch a really sloppy. This was intended to be a color mockup of my pencil sketch, but I got carried away with adding in color overlays and lighting. I'm going to do some more studies and then try inking a cleaner version of this.


Cyborg animal theme

A robot animal Mashup.  2 weeks to come up with at least one idea any style.

GitS - Major kusanagi Process

For the Ghost in the Shell theme, I've been working to redraw a panel from Shirow's original manga. I've been trying to redraw the Major and find a look that is more my own, while still keeping the feel of the original character. You can see from the reference image I have, that the fashion is very 80's (wide shoulders, high waste line, wrap around glasses, feathered hair... etc.) I tried to keep the bulky proportions but with a more modern slightly military feel.

So here are the sketches and studies I have so far. I still will take the drawing into Photoshop and mess around with proportions a bit more.

Ghost in the Shell - Theme

Hey everyone lets start drawing.

For the month of Febuary i'm proposing that our theme be based on Shirow Masamune's Ghost in the Shell. The artwork can be whatever you like, so long as it's based on the GitS universe. There is a lot of material out there that you can pull from (there is a Manga, 4 or 5 Films and two TV sessions.)

This theme should run for the entire month but that doesn't mean just post something at the end of the month. Feel free to post as much as you like, WIP art and concepts are more than welcome.
