Lily sans Makeup by RickGriffin Lily sans Makeup by RickGriffin

Lily from Ani-droids setting (Argo, still working on Isomorph)—sans “makeup”

I have had a bit of trouble with ani-droid designs as they never quite look like the blend of organic design and inorganic underpinnings, but perhaps that’s because the inorganic parts are so hidden in still images—they BEHAVE robotically, but it doesn’t always come across (especially when they eschew rigidity associated with that)

So something I’m toying with is an alternate design—“sans makeup”. Their outer covering is an important reactive substance marketed as Pseudoskin that generates power on contact with water (talked about in Argo) but I considered that the way it forms, while its initial state is putty, when it dries in the air it becomes firm. So maybe it has trouble contracting properly in certain areas, such as the inside of joints.

So this would be Lily after Pseudoskin is applied, dried, and fur has “grown” from it, but the pliable non-reactive makeup skin has been left off.

Maybe I’ll play with this a bit more—other alternatives to Pseudoskin? Eo’s skin was a substance that was form-fitted to her, perhaps alternately powered (cheaper) ani-droids use a suit covering?

This is a very creative android design! Most androids in fiction would just look exactly like a person on the outside, and have a robot skeleton in the inside, but you gave her more external robotic hints. It might be me, but the markings actually make her look like she's from a native tribe. That blue thing on her does look like a crystal, and the gold plates also gave me that assumption.

This is gorgeous. I've always had a fascination with robotic object/creatures that are made to look organic. The hint at the true mechanical nature makes it even more beautiful. Keep it up!
   (Funny, this is almost exactly how I pictured her after reading Argo)

So cute! Now I have to make different designs for my roleplay, but that's okay! Totally worth it!

And not a soul alive would ever complain if they had an Ani-Droid like Lily :3

You've definitely put a lot of thought into that. I wouldn't mind hearing more about the process of this pseudoskin.
