There's three things that I've been wanting to do lately. 1. I've been trying to practice rendering flesh. 2. I've been wanting to paint a female character again, since I don't do that often enough. And 3. I've been meaning to do a tribute/fanart piece for Ghost in the Shell (I'm a huge fan!). So I'm in the process of remedying these 3 things by doing portrait pieces of the 3 characters from the series- Motoko/Major, Batou, and either Chief Aramaki/Ishikawa/Togusa. Still undecided on the last one, since I like all their characters.
Here's Motoko (still got some clean up I'd like to do)
