Got the Makeover Itch by DeepChrome Got the Makeover Itch by DeepChrome
I noticed in her latest journal, *TwinklePowderySnow was considering redoing her humanized GLaDOS' hair, possibly in black. So I thought it might be fun to draw her a couple of ideas given it was pretty obvious she wanted to keep her humanization's bob.

Well, somehow this got warped into a whole comic, which was fun and kinda hilarious. I had fun putzing with the hairstyles, and just the general humor. I think my writing for her must be getting better?

Note: Some of you Portal fans might recognize what those 4 colors in the bottom left hairstyle refer to. ^_^ Cake goes to whoever guess--oh goddammit, GLaDOS has officially rubbed off on me. You can't promise somebody cake on the internet. Not unless you can bake it, and then mail it to the person in one piece. I can't believe I just did that... :facepalm:

The last hairstyle, the one in the little vignette-ish thing at the bottom, is my cracky nod to Nyan GLaDOS. :giggle: Or gay/lesbian pride, given people like to ship her with Chell. :shrug: Take your pick on which. Either one's funny as hell to me.

PS. If anyone has trouble reading the words at fullview, let me know. I couldn't judge very well what size lettering to use. I'll be happy to write the dialogue in the description if people are having problems.

GLaDOS is copyright to Valve, Twinkle's humanization is her creation.

My favorite is the 4 coulor, but make the mauve a streak as well and the rest of her hair black.

I keep laughing at TwinklePowderySnow's GLaDOS's pose and expressions when she has a different hairstyle. LOL "I'm too white" Lol I think everything is LOL in this piece. It's funny to see the stoic GLaDOS to somehow smile when she gets an idea. That one is funny too! No offence but I find this one really funny! Lol! Rainbow Dash plus Lady Gaga GLaDOS hybrid! Mind me for the repetition and the amount of LOLs.

Probably between 6 foot and 6 foot 3. *shrugs* I imagine her fairly tall because she wouldn't want to have an android shorter than everyone else in a room.

And nice play on the portal 1 cores, too. I think the black one with the yellow stripes is my favourite. c:
I'm still unsure about giving my Gladdy black hair - I think ultimately I'll keep it white, but maybe play around a little too. ;D Also, I love how our GLaDOSes interact! It's like some sort of weird, diabolical friendship. XD

Hahaha, yeah I was thinking it'd be fun to see how our two humanizations got along. I think *Super-Cute and ~almond-goddess have something going with theirs. It's practically GLaDOSxGLaDOS on their front. XD

Glad you liked the picture. Yeah I had to throw the rainbow one in at the end, like yours got a little bored with normal haircolors.

One idea that came to mind might be to use that hint of platinum blonde you've given her in some pictures. Some types of bleach-blonde read as white, but aren't as straight white. Maybe take the blue-gray one I did as a nod to *Super-Cute's GLaDOS, and play with those colors?

I think the problem with giving yours black hair is that she'd come off a bit Goth, which isn't GLaDOS at all. She's more the Stepford-cheerful snarker. And punk styles don't quite seem to work either.

I feel you on this one. It's definitely tricky.

Haha yeah, I think I saw that. XD And interesting pairing, but it certainly reflects how self-centred she is! XD

Thanks for making this, btw, it's been helpful. And for all your advice in general, of course! :heart:
Yeah, I see what you mean. A few people have said my GLaDOS looks goth with white hair (although I don't really see that, myself ^^;), and I really don't want t go down that path. It's almost as bad as MMD GLaDOS. Well, not quite that bad..

Heheh, it is indeed tricky. :/

You're welcome. I hope it helps in some way.

Could go with silvery gray hair - remember how I said that one batch of GLaDOS and Wheatley pics gave off the impression that yours had mirror-shiney silver hair?

Could be worth a try - just up the reflections on her hair, add more grays/blues, and give it more of a shimmery effect. Might be a nice subtle non-Goth way to make her hair different from her face, but not so dark and intense as pure black?

All-white would read as albino or weird puritanical stuff to me, not Goth. Of course I think they might be reading the "Goth" bit off her white complexion.

The all-white stuff is partly why if you look closely at mine, I tinted mine's skin a bit opalescent blue/purple. Kinda like those robots from I, Robot with the weird opalescent skin?

That alone might be another thing to play with for your GLaDOS. Keep the hair, tint her complexion a little?

lol. if anything, i just like the idea that there are different GLaDOSes in different "multiverses" interacting with each other... via portals.

DeepChrome Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah that was the only way I was gonna make that groupshot comic work, and since then, the idea that there is this way to connect to alternate universes via special portals has kinda stuck in my Portal headcanon. My headcanon has also made those portals white, but that groupshot comic was made before I hit on that idea. :shrug:

But yeah, the interactions would be awesome. Maybe I'll do more comics of this. :devmikeoneyoru:'s GLaDOS strikes me as the sort to jump universes doing science-themed rock concerts, while *Super-Cute's just stays at the lab and does science 24/7. You get the idea.

... well, the idea is still entertaining: a portal universe (or rather, multiverse) created by diviantartists to converse their ideas on the personality of GLaDOS, and the other characters.

... but mostly GLaDOS since it is so much funnier...

... i think i just might add my OWN design to the club...

I'm liking that second one, with the darker grey and the black stripe. The first is a little too goth, and the third and fourth are a little too punk. XD I wonder what she'll end up with in the end.

And Personality Core colors FTW! *laugh* And the last...I think I'll land with the nod to the Nyan!GLaDOS. For some reason, the GLaDOS/Chell pairing disturbs me. I can see them as a BFF-in-denial.

Your GLaDOS is tall. Or Twinkle!GLaDOS is short. (Or both.)

:icondeepchrome:
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hahahaha, I have no idea what Twinkle's gonna do with hers.

I personally wish she'd play with the long-haired look for her. She had this premise that in Portal 2, her humanization awoke with hair to the floor cause her hair kept growing while she was "dead."

And yeah, mine's tall. Dunno about Twinkle!GLaDOS' height. I figured her to be average?

The reasoning behind mine being tall? I had the feeling GLaDOS wouldn't want to be shorter than any test subjects or people that body encountered. The premise is that the humanization is an android she builds out of a desire to be somewhat more human (Caroline's fault), and a bit of boredom. I guess I'm in the ~MuriraRK school of thought as far as GLaDOS having an android...

as far as a ref to portal (Some of you Portal fans might recognize what those 4 colors in the bottom left hairstyle refer to) I have no idea... Honestly, I don't think I've seen any of those colors in the game, even... It's always really more sterile on the indoor levels and then earthy tones outside... Seriously, I have no clue... haha.


As a side note: Love the bob-cut... It's so sporty and cute~! And that HumanoDOS look so adorable when she's trying to decide!!!

DeepChrome Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The bob was *TwinklePowderySnow's idea, that one's her humanized GLaDOS design. She's had that since Twinkle put out her first drawing of her.

Nyra got it - Personality Core colors from the first game. I don't mind giving out the clue now. Heh.

Thank you anyways. And yeah I figured that humanDOS (dangit, now I'm gonna remember that name) might be a bit indecisive. Heh.

I dunno who mailed the cake, cause I haven't got any ingredients here, and sure couldn't bake and mail one that fast. Better double-check the contents....they could be suspicious. >___> *glances over at a sprawling wheatfield in Michigan*

She still hasn't quite gotten over the Nyan thing...

Yeah, I'm thinking the black hair might make her look a little too goth, and that is definitely not GLaDOS.
