Miriya Parino, Finest Combat Ace of the Zentraedi undergoes the mirconization process so she can infiltrate the SDF-1 and search out her "nemesis" Max Sterling.   Micronization was a protoculture intensive procedure reserved for only the most important of missions.

Always wanted to do this piece, but had a heck of a time figuring out how to do it tastefully without departing from the way the scene was depicted in the OS.

Miriya Parina Sterling. Once a very well known ace pilot of the Zentradi Forces. She is agile and very skilled. From what I remember this character is that she had a rival named Maximillian Sterling who is a pilot of the Veritech Fighters. In the Robotech anime series, these 2 pilots are in a dogfight inside the SDF-1. Not to mention, Miriya is responsible for killing Roy Fokker, Rick Hunter's closest friend & former Veritech Skull Squadron pilot. Eventually, Miriya requested Azonia to become a Micronian spy to investigate the humans until Max came Miriya and getting married together. Whoa! Indeed.

My only criticism is that she looks a little tall.  Maybe you could make her shorter.   


See what I did there? :D

Something I always loved about the Zentradi & Meltlandi was their balance of elegance & brutality. She can shoot down ships all day in space& in the air, then she can land on the ground, exit her armor, & crush our infantry under her boots like bugs! Or squish some civilians for shits& giggles if  likes.:heart:

It is definitely a more graceful depiction of the event than shown in canon, for various reasons, most of them good. :)  My friends were always amused that the Meltran sizing chambers had a conveniently located center bar which the normal Zentran chambers didn't seem to require. ;)

Oa La La!  I though it was a shower scene.  Thank goodness they were separated at the time or you would get a free show.

I remember her being curvier in the cloning chamber, not so slim

All I can say is...Max, you lucky man!  She was worth almost being killed for.

Thanks Broadshore...I do tend to fixate on the Southern Cross,  mostly because that IP needs the most help!
