With every new piece in my developing post-cyberpunk IP, I try to explore something new in terms of my artistic expression, and this time it's classic, GITSy anime. A rather serene scene, a snap of a storyboard. Operator is contemplating, and we can see his augments better - in a more animation-friendly, streamlined design.

Comment and enjoy)

Here's a track to go with it, as usual:…

Futuristic room in a modern world... Nah, something don't seem right.

To me, there's something deeper going on.  I disagree that this is a normal event: based on the environment, this individual must be one of the most technologically augmented beings of his time. Whether or not he's the only one like this remains unknown.

An odd reflection in the window, too: you'd think his back would reflect but, instead, it seems to reflect his upper front body from his left side. Is it all an illusion? Is this guy longing to go back to the older days because his silhouette looms over the modern metropolis?

What about his quarters? He looks as though he sleeps in a bath tub, with the appropriate toiletry adjacent to the interface in front of the window. Can't exactly tell what's hanging on the hanger nearby, maybe a towel or pants? On the desk, a Walkman or MP3 Player? Even all electronics in the room seem to have a blur, out of focus, out of thought.  What DOES stay in focus seem to be the basics: clothes, bedding, the view of the afternoon (or before), and himself, contemplating.

Well, at least the air looks clean in the future. Great job on creating such a wonderful piece of work! Forgive me if I'm not familiar with your other works, I'm just interpreting this one in my own way.

I love that one.  It's the perfect balance between realistic art and anime.
Haha and the bed looks like a bath tube.))
