Hm. Adam would be getting a LOT of practice in the 'horizontal mambo' sampling the specimens' DNA, so she might try a bit of...this 'n that... with Ellie and see how their new forms react...(Helmets & body panels strewn all over the floor...!
(Or they could go down to the 'bar' and get 'sauced' on energy packets...! )
I STILL want to see a Specimen get loose on their ship (Cue up 'Yakkity Sax')...or see if BOTH of them can work with the Specimen somehow to defeat 4076...
Maybe the Queen doesn't know what 4076 is doing, and perhaps it would go poorly for 4076 if the Queen KNEW...! 0_0;;
And thanks for the fave, Kamon, I appreciate it!
If you can visualize any design tweaks to the Gynoidians to make them more unique, let me know...I see If I can build it and add it to Ellie. (She's ALMOST there, but SOMETHING'S not quite right yet...)
Possibly even causing Ellie to freeze up in the middle of the something as she just a worker Gynoidian after all. Her power levels would not be the same as Adam who is a scout. She being test something out with Ellie only to find out that the blue helmet Gynoidian had shutdown from having run out of power
Possibly something Ellie would have to do since as Gynoidian Ellie could not even complain about Adam unable to last as that would be her. She possibly be embrassed at time where she caught powered down as result of what she would explain as simply catloging Adam's gathering while she was scouting.
That could be interesting as what if the specimen was the Queen as she was pretending to be girl that was aducted and managed to escape. She runs into Ellie and Adam learning what 4076 has been up to. Maybe when 4076 comes and does not something she clearly forbade against in shutting off their free will to force them to help her. That when the Queen shows herself as such possibly shocking them all as they would not think the Gynoidian Queen is a little girl. Despite her really being over 100 to well over a 1000 times older then all them combined since she was originally a cave girl herself before being a Gynoidian
I would have know what you used as I can not place the props used to make the model look like Ellie does. The model used seem like BelBel but I can not 100% sure as I have never been able to make Aiko look like she does in the various pictures I have seen of her with straight anime like face
Didn't THINK of the possible difference in power reserves.
Bigger 'batteries' COULD be an available upgrade for them, if they WANT it, tho...or something they have to EARN.
Possibly Adam would have a way to transfer power to keep Ellie going...('Cabling' might be something...intimate...for thier kind, too. )
The character I use for these renders is basically Aiko3. I just rebuilt it to drop the poly count down to about 30,000 (from 75,000+). The head is pretty much the same, it just has a 'robot' face morph, which sharpens the shape of the nose and brow ridges to make them a bit more like the faces on 'Transformers' (The TV cartoon series).
I think there's an anime-style character for Poser by the name of Kururu. You might want to check on her. There's clothing & stuff out there for her, and she looks pretty good...
The young girl look would make sense for the Queen...for the shock value more than anything. It worked well in 'Dance In the Vampire Bund' with the (apparently) pre-pubescent Mina Tιpes, Queen of all Vampires...the trick is getting her 'human' look and her 'Gynoidian' form to look different enough so 4076 WOULDN'T recognize her in human form.
Well Scouts would possibly need a large power reserve to keep going longer during their mission without needing to return. Thus Ellie being a worker unit does not need a large power reserve thus does not have one because when she need to recharge she can just go do it
Ellie could be worried that what if getting a bigger battery cause her to change as what if she feel and think the things she does not only because how much her old self is stored within her central processor but also from her battery which is supply her power. Since she is a worker she does not have to worry about needing one thus no need to take the chance. Inform Adam of this who strangely enough has one the largest power reserve around even for scouts.
Possibly as when Ellie is running low or has just stopped all together. Adam could connected the two them to share power but could also lead to moment where both them are discovered powered down. Or frozen in place as Adam did not judge the time properly thus they stop in the middle of leaving to do some other duty.
I tried using Aiko3 but switched over to using BelBel which basically the same model with only a different face. Do not really have the skill to rebuild the poly count as I have just mess with the avaiable settings. Also have Kururu myself and used her a few times myself
What meant by props was the paneling and armor Ellie wears plus the skin used to make her look robotic in the first place. I have somethings to make the models look robot but really nothing to that degree.
What if really she was a reverse Mina Tepes as that could also add to the shock value even more. Her true Gynoidian and Human is her original child form as she was taken as one back during the caveman era. Thus as result her body never grew up as she was converted as kid thus stay a kid. However her Queen forms (Gynoidian and Human) are similar to the previous Queens as each Queen has two forms. Their Queen form which looks similar to the first Queen of the Gynoidian and their true form which something they keep hidden as safety mechaism for them to hide themselves if needed
"What meant by props was the paneling and armor Ellie wears plus the skin used to make her look robotic in the first place. I have somethings to make the models look robot but really nothing to that degree."
Most of what makes Ellie here look robotic are in the texture maps. 'Course, drawing lines on the Aiko 3 (or BelBel) texture map (with it's HEAVY distortion) is a ROYAL P.I.T.A., but CAN be done. That's ONE of the reasons why I redid her...so I could have a UV Map layout where I can draw straight lines without going B@+$#!+ insane...
BelBel is PROBABLY a bit lower in poly count, due to the head being lighter in poly count. Aiko3's head is about 30,000 polys by itself, so ANYTHING that replaces THAT will lighten the character SUBSTANTIALLY.
(If you're doing it in Poser, send me a note with your e-mail addy, and I'll send what I've got thus far. You SHOULD be able to bring them in as props and parent them to the body parts without too much issue. I'd have to take the time to rebuild the texture for Aiko. [Unfortunately, I don't have BelBel. I DO have Kururu, tho...])
I could picture her body armor adding/merging with her body to MAKE her look older. Only when she meets some Gynoidian or Specimen that she feels she can REALLY trust, would she retract her armor and show the smaller, robotic version of herself.
Maybe the male Specimen she saves from 4076 (He runs out of the TF chamber on ship and inadvertantly HIDES in the Queen's conference chamber. He hides and watches as the Queen speaks with 2 Gynoidians, and then they leave. While he's mentally reviewing what's happened, she sneaks up behind him, and tries to find out what he's doing there. She says that she can promise that 4076 will NOT convert him, but for a price: He gets to go home, but NOW he's got a 'younger sister' now, who's trying to understand his crazy, primative world. 4076 is NOT happy that her Queen is associating with these...Primatives, but Queen doesn't give her the option. He goes back home, but now with a younger sister, and a few other female relatives/'friends' [Maybe one being Adam] that are guarding the Queen as she plays hooky and finds reasons NOT to assimilate MORE specimens.)
Well I have managed to get creative with various texture maps being able to make one myself is beyond what I think I am capable of. So while I could probably use the one for the body the real problem come in with the head. BelBel and Aiko have different heads they basically have the same exact body type. All clothing for Aiko (3 at least not 4) work with BelBel.
I am not doing my stuff in Poser but DAZ Studio which basically a similar program that to my knowledge use up 90% of what Poser can. Thus I should probably be able to use the stuff just fine. I also have Chibi Bel with pretty much just child to pre-teen version of BelBel(I used her as both really). Only problem there is I have really seen her supported in the way BelBel or Kururu are thus while I have made quite a bit of makeshift clothing myself the whole Gynoidian might be hard to pull off if I tried it by myself. Mostly the skin texture as I can refit the hair and other stuff possibly and have something that might can be pulled off as armor.
With the body armor idea what if her Queen form is the body armor of the former queen that have been passed down onto her(each queen wear the body armor of the original or something) Thus she has armored form that makes her look older then she really appearence because whil her true form is of Gynoidian child. The armor is of full grown woman that she controls and even have cloaking feature allow her to appear like the native speices (in this case human) without ever having to take it off
Possibly as she in the middle of getting out her armor cause while she has the largest power reserve out any Gynoidian. She does need to recharge herself and she really can not while in her body armor (which also has it own power supply that milk off of but that dry too). She caught techically with her 'pants down' by the male speciemen. She gets angry but that also cause her to use the last of her power reserve and she powers down. Seeing that she did not want to seen like this he hide her along with himself in what just happen to be her recharge area. Once she had regain enough power she discovery the speicemen had managed to keep her secert and then make that promise with him.
With Adam being one of her guards and Ellie being personal assitant to her as going to talk to them about something and 4076 angry about their queen associating with him and trying to get used to what was once her home world before she had become Gynoidian herself all those years ago when she was still just simple cave girl.
