DEUNAN and MAJOR KUSANAGI, 2001 sketch by AdamWarren DEUNAN and MAJOR KUSANAGI, 2001 sketch by AdamWarren
2001 sketch of Shirow Masamune's leading ladies, Deunan Knute from Appleseed and Major Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell. Scanned from a photocopy, so the reproduction's not the best you could hope for; then again, it's an old sketch, so who cares.

Are you sure you're thinking of the right shows? The Major is a full-body cyborg, Briareos is a heavy cyborg, and Deunan was 100% curvy human.

Looks absolutely awesome. If the photocopy scan made for some loss in quality, it either doesn't show or possibly makes it look even better due to some weird effect.

Huh. All we need is Priss, The Dirty Pair, and Alita. That would be a badass female team for the ages.

In all fairness, before I read the description I thought for a moment that I WAS looking at the Dirty Pair. At least, Adam's portrayal from the early-mid 1990s...

Hmm.... no eye patch, no go, hahaha! I like whatever the hell the Major is doing with her mouth. It's like she's really unimpressed and vexed at the same time. I love your old stuff. Making me nostalgic.

I'm a big fan of both your work and Shirow's work, and your takes on Shirow's two hottest heroines is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup-style synthesis of two of my favorites. It almost looks like a cosplay from your versions of Kei and Yuri as the two Shirow ladies. This is my favorite so far of your current trip down memory lane with these old sketches.

Lovely work and great pencil shading .. specially love how you made Motoko's expression cold and professional while Dunan's expression more aggressive and hot-headed .. and it's always good to see two of my fav heroines side-by-side XD
