Every week over at the Stock*Pile Work Blog [link]
, and myself sketch a pre-determined subject. This week I chose the works of Masamune Shirow.
I love Masamune Shirow's art and the action scenes in the Appleseed manga are top notch. I put a ton of work into all of the minutiae of Deunan and Briareos' gear and had a blast penciling/inking everything, then I got sick of fiddling with some graytones in Photoshop and decided to leave this piece black and white for now. I'm very happy with this Briareos. I think Deunan could look a bit more feminine, but whattayagonnado?
For more ruminations on this piece and lots more art from the entire Stock*Pile crew, check out our blog here: [link]
