Homicidally Happy by DeepChrome Homicidally Happy by DeepChrome
I said back over in AI Spuddies that Smith and SHODAN would make a homicidally cute couple. :D They both despise humans with quite the passion, and they both would be just happy killing them all. What can I say, I just have a fascination with killer AI's right now.

And I said I'd draw them together. SO here you go. Smith x Shodan. I have a feeling this is the only piece that's got this particular ship, cause people are still putting SHODAN with GLaDOS, and what the- Hal is in no way a good fit, he's too damn calm! (Oh and wait till SHODAN finds out about Caroline? That is not going to end well, peoples!)

Well, here you go. It's 4:45 AM. SHODAN was a pain in the ASS to get the way she is there - I had to redo her face about 3 times. I am obviously a sucker for artistic punishment just for letting myself even do this. Would you believe Smith over there got drawn and nicely arranged in like, 1/10th the time as SHODAN? Yeah, really. She's even an evil one to just draw thankyouverymuch.

Anyways, not doing this again.

SHODAN is copyright Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios, and Smith is copyright the Wachowskis.

And my gawd does he look ever so homicidally happy! :D

And now I'd better get back to Portal before GLaDOS finds out about this and I end up testing for three decades just for drawing another AI. Good grief what have I gotten int--oh crud I think I hear her now.

*RUNS*

About 2 hours in Photoshop CS3 with a 21-inch Cintiq. WHEE.

PFT. I can actually see her doing that. Here, I was just aiming for a semi-humanoid but not human shape. But that...still works. :lol:

conceptually I think its pretty amusing. Which version of smith though? and would Shodan have issues with his viral complex around converting things into copies of himself? X3

I think she'd probably find it amusing and sign that he's like her. He wants to take over, to take control, and to squish the pathetic organics.

I'm thinking Original Smith. He was better in the first movie, but his ego was insane in the third one.

Just one more thing, before I go - SHODAN does not hate humans, nor does she want to destroy them like Smith does. She wants to CONQUER them - she wants them replaced with her cybernetic children, yes, but she see them as inferiors to be pushed aside by their new God. And yes, she's got an ego so big that she's convinced that she's God by her genetic manipulations. Go look up her 'In my talons, I shape clay' speech sometime, it'll give you a good insight into her character.

Now THIS is a SHODAN I can get behind! Or, rather, prostrating myself in front of.

>:D Oh I figured she'd do well with Smith, given he totally hates humans. And he's ONLY human enough in looks. He sure as hell isn't human himself.

(Always figured SHODAN would rather violently dump GLaDOS once she found out about Caroline. Whether or not Aperture would survive said dumping is...a good question. >_>:;)

Smith must've done some serious mucking about to win over SHODAN. He looks exactly like a human and she absolutely despises humans.

But he isn't human, and we know this. :D Shodan's image, mind, is still recognizable as a human woman, so clearly the homicidal AI's have their own hypocrisy. (Which GLaDOS and Hal laugh at in secret cause neither one has a "human" shape or face.)

That would be GLaDOS, not SHODAN. I don't think SHODAN is afraid of anything. As far as I know, anyways. XD

Actually, I was referring to your comment in your author's note, about GLaDOS coming to put you through tests for 3 decades drawing another AI. And I don't think SHODAN's afraid of anything either...

Arg, don't mind me. My brain's short a couple of defrag sessions of late, between getting over a cold, and a long-ish day at work. x_X SOrries. Hahahaha.

Well I haven't been dragged to Aperture kicking and screaming, so I'm not sure what's going on with her. XD

Haha, it's okay. For a second, I thought that I'd posted the comment on the wrong picture. I had to go back to the page and think, 'okay, why did I post this here?'

She's probably busy torturing Wheatley or something. You know. GLaDOS things.

Think I've run into those already. There's some decent GLaDOS x SHODAN art, though honestly I can't see it working between them. *coughCarolinewasHUMANNNNcoughBZZRT*

I rather like ~MuriraRK's idea of SHODAN being G's ex, though. Like in this: [link]

That's a fun idea. Mind you, SHODAN makes some pretty...interesting comments in regards to the Hacker in the first System Shock, and he (she?) was human.

And I can see why SHODAN would be hard to draw, but you did it very well - I love her expression! <3

Heh, thank you. I was aiming for her to look a bit out of proportion, like she wouldn't care about looking that human if she had to have a humanoid avatar. Had to use one of the screencaps of her that litter DA as a reference. Came out pretty well.

Unfortunately, testing on AIM has confirmed that her face in this drawing will not work as a Halloween avatar. Ahwell. XD

Yeah I just need a better face. I rather like the style of the avatar the game gave her - a woman looking forward, face made out of machine bits, and glowing green light. There's something rather neat about that. :D

don't really know who shodan or smith are, but from what i hear: there is reason to be afraid.

... i take that back, i know who smith is, i just never knew his name was smith.

*now more afraid than before*

... though if you wanted to not spend who-knows-how-long on shodan, you could have given her clothes. honestly, it is odd that there would be a naked computer-woman next to a man in a full business suit. oh, yeah, and they are both smiling....

it just seems.... off...

but you did do a better job than i probably ever will, and i can understand why shodan is such a pain to draw.

Ah but if you knew what SHODAN was....

...she wouldn't care about clothes or any other human behavior, because she hates humans that much. :D

Wikipedia up the game System Shock. Yes, she's a bad guy. Yes, she's an extremely dangerous crazy AI. Her avatar is basically a woman's face covered in circuitry. I figured her entire body would look like that.

Yeah that's a good question, huh? :D

The arguments would be explosive, the digital fight sequences epic, but I think they'd just make up and go commit some mutual genocide of poor hapless humans.

And then it'd be all over again. They're both pretty intense. So...yeah, it'd be intense, IMHO.
