This illustration shows the production imageboard, used during pre-production to direct the artwork of the film Ghost in the Shell and features the scene just after movie's main character, Major Kusanagi chased the villain down and out an empty alley. Due to the strong elements of action in the plot, after discussing the storyline with the director of the movie, Shuichi Kusamori wanted to convey a sense of freedom and liberty in his drawing.
