Say what you will about the new Ghost in the Shell as a movie, one thing I think we can all agree on is that it looks absolutely stunning. So let’s check out some of the concept art work that went into creating the film’s look.

Some of the world’s best artists lent their talents to GITS’ production, and many—like Eidos’ Nivanh Chanthara and former Naughty Dog artist Maciej Kuciara—have been featured on Fine Art previously. Note that the artists here aren’t the only ones to have worked on the movie, they’re just among those who have shared their work publicly.

Below are some highlights of their contributions, but you can visit each of the artist’s portfolios (linked in their names) to see more.

This gun makes no sense. There’s not even any barrel, it’s just a comically oversized suppressor. Why would street cops need a suppressor, especially one that fucking huge? That shit’ll degrade eventually, anyway, leaving you to either bring multiple suppressors the size of your arm or to try and shoot an automatic weapon one-handed. Plus, the drum magazine makes it heavier overall, and it would have a higher likelihood of breaking down due to the additional moving parts. Plus, it looks so small that there’s not even the benefit of more ammo. I get that it’s the future, but this is just a stupid design.
