Byte for Mystical

Share

Time for more Robot gals.

Here is the 2nd of the 3 Robot Shortstacks that inspired Silica Nexus.

This is Mystical's Byte and as you can see, she holds the strongest influence over Silica's overall design.

Byte was the major factor that made me want to make Silica to begin with, however when making her, I had to be very careful as not to make Silica look too close to Byte.

There is wearing your influences on your shoulder and then there is just straight plagiarism, and I wanted to avoid the later.

Byte was fun to work on, as I love all the ways the shades of blue came together; not to mention I had forgotten how thicc she was to begin with.

My only issue with Byte is that she has had multiple design tweaks and changes over the years.

I had a number of picture of Byte saved for myself, but they all are different in slight ways.

And since Tumblr nuked all NSFW material off that site, Mystical's Tumblr page was killed and a good portion of his art was removed.

I don't know if some of his Tumblr only art was archived but I couldn't find the pieces of Byte uploaded on his Twitter and Newgrounds.

And as far as I know Mystical has not redrawn Byte since Tumblr, so if she has an existing "new look" I haven't seen it yet.

So I picked this version of Byte to draw as this one was my favor of her various designs.

Overall this turned out fantastic, I'm really proud of this one.

One day, I hope that Mystical will go back to Byte and update her like he with with his Fruit Girls.
