I mentioned when I first uploaded this scan that I was going to trace it. Well... it took a while, but I finally started and finished it! While trying to think of a background, I popped in my GitS:SAC OST 2 to listen to for inspiration. The first song to play was "Cyberbird", one of my favorites on the disc. So...I thought about it for a while and decided to give Motoko "wings" via a set of plugs (since the first idea was to call it "unplugged" and I've still kept the idea in the final version). Certainly not your typical angel! The rest was messing with an abstract background.
I can't feel like I've sold out by offering a busty-girl-wallpaper ~_~ I even reduced the size of her breasts because they were inhumanly large in the original. If this makes it to highlighted submissions when my Stellvia "Star Cross'd Lovers" didn't, I'll be rather annoyed ~_~ I never was one for fanservice -_-'

    It is very unique, because there are so many wires.

    the plugs! I mean, the plugs! that's an awesome vector job...!! XD

    As would I, as long as it was riding the wave of big boobs. ^^' However, if it's because of your fine design sense/imagination, sharp vector skills, too-cool wires and that awesome background (now *that* is the way to do a 'matrix' numbers background! XD) then I'd be quite, quite happy for you.
    And omg (what--? o_< I hate using that phrase) I love your typography. :o That simplicity and...and...coolness is just pure class. ^^' Good work!

    I'm faving it not because of the size of her breast, but because of the excellent composition and vector work ^^ =p

    <3 the abstract design of the BG, clean and easy on the eyes :D

    wow....genius at work! :D

  8. Dracom Sep 23, 2004

    Really original! It seems a cell shading pic! Nice :)

  9. Noctum Sep 23, 2004

    Some of the rings around Motoko have pixelated edges, but that doesn't reduce my high opinion of this unique design at all.
    Great work. :)

  10. Sako Sep 23, 2004

    I see some flaws in some shapes confronting it with the original images, but hell, it must've been a pain to trace it all (all those wires O.o). And I love the bg.

  11. asuk Sep 23, 2004

    my only complain is that motoko looks fat. other than that, great job dude

  12. volrath77 Sep 23, 2004
