At long last here is the final colored image for
Observant visitors will notice a slight
variance in point of view between this image and my initial composition. [link]
I hope that my "audible call"*
in this regard doesn't disappoint too many viewers expecting to see a finished rendering of the previous image.**
Anyway, here we have Major Kusanagi
and Prime Minister Kayabuki
in the playful clutches of the childlike Tachikoma's.
I don't normally draw ropes, but I put some on Kayabuki
to show how she was bound differently
than the Major,
who is under special high-tech restraint.
I figured the metallic cable-looking bonds, the small devices with the lights at every cinch point, as well as the big-blocky-thingamabob
attached to the back of her neck would serve to communicate that extraordinary measures were taken to effectively restrain Motoko,
as well as prevent her from calling for assistance via cyberspace.*** *Football term. When a quarterback, upon viewing an unexpected defensive formation, verbally changes the play from what was issued by the teams coach. This happens all the time in cheesy sports movies.
**Alright, I admit it. I changed the POV when I realized I could sample lace textures from online and paste them on my art. So yes, it was all about the panty shot!
***Despite the measures I've taken, I fully expect a fusillade of questions and comments asking how I could possibly hope to overcome the prodigious Major, and truss her like some run of the mill cute anime babe.
It's tough being a mad satellite.
