Another android for SHODAN by DeepChrome Another android for SHODAN by DeepChrome
I can't stop drawing these. I have like, 5 doodles now. There will be more. My Tumblr has a few of the other doodles on there.

I have this headcanon that if SHODAN had androids, she'd have a whole pile of different ones - all creepy, disturbing, regal, imposing, not at all convincingly humanoid, mostly robotic, at least 6 foot 6 tall, and evoke the whole Robot Goddess thing - and their parts would be all interchangeable. Different heads, arms, legs, cable skirts, you name it.

scorpion: who are you? SHODAN: you will bow to your goddess insect.

Also I am writing a System shock and Mass effect crossover fanfiction and I was thinking of using that SHODAN android as SHODAN in human form. ( because I think that is what she would look like as a 'robotic Empress'.

seeing SHODAN 'in that form' setting on a throne (with a seductive like smile)  with two enslaved (humans or Asari) with glowing green eyes as her guards and a crowd of enslaved (humans or Asari) bowing to her.

I love this so much.

Also, you got me to go back to my Shodan 3D-model, damn you!

Ooooh I've been cursed?! XD

Also thank you. :D I'll probably draw more androids. I imagine SHODAN having an entire closet or equipment room full of them, and they've all got interchangeable parts.

i always imagined that her android body would be like HUGE compared to the size of humans, to play up the whole 'God/Insect' motif she had going. And it'd be literally ripping out of the walls of the final room. Just a huge feminine body composed of tubes, wires, ducts, microchips, etc. to do battle with the player. Because why bring herself down to his level?

Yep. I figured she'd be at least 6 foot 6 if not outright 7 feet. I always imagined her as towering over everyone else, but keeping a definite feminine vibe - however scary.

Most of my other doodles of SHODAN androids have little 5 foot 8 me in there as a height reference. :D So believe me, I totally am of the same mind here, even if your idea has her even bigger.

I'm reminded of MCP-boosted Sark from the old Tron movie - surprised there wasn't an insect reference there given System Shock used Tron for inspiration in a few places. For one thing, Flynn was a hacker, and SHODAN's old conical shape from the first game references the MCP. Heh heh heh.

(Which is why I think if they do a new MCP variant in a future Tron movie, we'll see at least one nod to System Shock. Heh heh heh. I'm sort of hoping they make MCP 2.0 female with a glitch voice. -COUGHcough- )

well it just makes for a more epic boss to one of the best games of all time. She practically makes it sound like it was going to happen that way with all her talk of the ship being her 'body', constantly calling the Hacker an insect, and whatnot.

*shrugs*

would be interesting to see the MCP meet SHODAN

Yeah no kidding. Any body she'd make would be at least towering over everyone else if not outright huge.

And yes that would be an interesting meeting. MCP's also completely full of it, and seemed to be working on a god complex as well in Tron. I heard somewhere they were going to do MCP 2.0 for the next Tron movie. (Here's hoping it's a woman with a glitch voice cause a Shock movie probably isn't happening....although if you add up all the stuff from the first movie, I'd say MCP 2.0 probably WOULD make a run for turning into SHODAN...)

Hell just about ANY clash of artificial intelligences against SHODAN would be interesting to see. Hal 9000, GLaDos, SkyNet, Colossus (Forbin Project), Proteus IV, the thing from that 90's Virus movie, etc.

I remember Colossus (that movie was a bit creepy but I don't remember enough of it). I think the most interesting brawl would be against the Matrix AI's. Both seem to have a real knack for the creepy monster bingo... >_>;; Those Squids, damn.

lol, yeah. Though she'd probably find their decision to keep the 'insects' alive to be a waste of time and resources.

Proteus IV is from that one Dean Koontz novel "Demon Seed", where this A.I. falls in love with it's creator's wife and tries to impregnate her. I think Shodan would probably find that idea to be utterly disgusting.

SkyNet and Shodan would probably be best friends. XD

OH god wasn't there some movie somewhere I saw (an old one) of an AI that tried to impregnate a woman with its avatar or something? As for Proteus, I think my SHODAN muse is already itching to vomit mutagenic viruses all over somebody for that. Utterly revolted.

And yeah I can see SkyNet and SHODAN either being friends or those enemies who are so alike they just utterly despise each other. Ya know, kismessitude of the utmost.

I always imagined her as a moderately curvy android with skin the kind of off-gray color of regular network cables
