I believe I’d gotten myself into a Ghost in the Shell kick when I started this one. I believe I’d also re-watched Hugo around that time. I wanted to create a mechanical character, one that was very obviously non-human, but still held an element of female attractiveness. I enjoy the idea of many pieces coming together to create a whole, and had a great deal of fun setting all the lines and joints and bolts in her design. It was also fun to eliminate the need for human anatomy, and focus on a more purely mechanical approach to a humanoid form. The flexible compression support that makes up her waist was definitely a move toward blatantly disregarding normal human proportions. Which is fun to do, sometimes!
CC2012 entries 05-09 are SUPER LATE but I wanted to get them online anyway. I did them in November, but was unable to get them online due to life’s circumstances and general busy-ness from November until now.
