She doesn't seem like she really wants to move the way her body makes her... expression and pose all together it´s a pretty interesting piece. Smooth and conflicting at the same time. Like: the perils of technology...

-cd-

the detailed limbs contrasts the simple face...there is nothing about her face that would imply she is a robot/puppet. it might work better if you simplified her robot parts more or added more detail to her face... in some way...

something about the design of her feet seems real clunky. like it could be refined into a better design compared to the other parts.
yeah it mimics the articulation in our foot... but is that much articulation really necessary? does it need soo many point of articulation?... does it need individual Toes.... seems like economically a hinge joint between the toes and foot would be just fine.... but thats more for puppets i guess.... might just be me though.



in general, from a design perspective it needs some work... but from a technical perspective id say its almost perfect.

Great work!

cashumeru responds:

thanks for the breakdown, i really appreciate stuff like this! i can see where youre coming from, but the idea is that the species isn't synthetic at all, just with intricate joints and such, since theyre born and grow from babies etc. so shes basically organic hard skin and black bone

i have a lot to brush up on though if i ever make a true robotic design, so ill take notes, thanks again!

Really love the limb design and the contrast between mechanical features & the wrinkled clothing/hair, and your colors feel really soft!

cashumeru responds:

much appreciated, Im always changing colors for too much time haha. dig your stuff btw!

All these connections with that robot stuff is such a pleasure to look at! It's all done so... nicely. <3

cashumeru responds:

thank you! I had a lot of fun basically reverse simplifying stuff ive been learning body wise too

Really love the anatomy of this automaton ;A;

cashumeru responds:

I was on the fence tons on where i should socket stuff and such haha. thanks so much btw!
