Modern Day Frankenstein

EDIT: I found this AWESOME program which helps clean your linearts for you! :excited:
Check it out --> [link]

This is the culmination of an 8 hour Ghost in the Shell marathon and reading Frankenstein for school.

It's the first drawing I have done in a long time, and I was lazy to go over the lines with the pen tool, so I tried my best to clean up the lineart using filters (obviously Noise ^^;) and other methods.

I think I failed.

I noticed a few parallels between Frankenstein's monster and AI. Not saying AI is bad and btw I haven't finished reading the book yet. No spoilers.

I have a secret dream to be part of the development of AI systems in the future. :heart:

Anyways, I don't expect you to enjoy (especially the technique) - I didn't use any machine part references and the poor lineart cleaning makes me want to cry.
I just wanted to submit something after such a long time.

I really recommend watching Ghost in the Shell. I was totally against all anime before watching it - but the themes in the series are so perceptive, and you have to admire the detailed and plausible vision of the future that it describes.

Or maybe Japan is already like that... :paranoid:

I like the colouring ^^ and the details look really cool.

And haha, did Rufus finally convince you to watch Ghost in the Shell? She was ranting on about how there are similarities between Ghost in the Shell/Frankenstein/Blade Runner and the whole Man vs Machine... I think she might have used it as a related text? But I'm doing different texts, so...

NO. It was not Rufus.
The one thing I dislike about the series is the Laughing Man. :|

My dad likes watching anime. Weird, huh. :love:

Thanks Choco, as always - I just watched Blade Runner and I noticed it too. ;P

Thank you! I really want to read it sometime too - it's rare that I see the anime before the manga. You should watch it though! :D

Thanks so much again! :heart:
