I AM NOT CUTE by DeepChrome I AM NOT CUTE by DeepChrome
Okay. I've decided I might as well post this one anyways.

If someone finds this offensive, I can sort of understand, but I have to admit whoever would be offended by this might've set themselves up for it. So I'm of two minds about it.

My character's dialogue here pretty much sums up what this is about - it's both a commentary about said subject, and basically a humorous poke at said subject as well. I'm amazed at how many times people will cute-ify a character that doesn't really need it. Sometimes it works, like in the "chibi" style. Other times it...it's Squicktown.

Such is my opinion about the 14-year-old loli style personifications of GLaDOS. *shudders* Okay, I get people are into that. I get some even find it adorable, cool, kawaii, whatever. But...this is a psycho homicidal computer who kills people with death traps in test chambers, neurotoxin, and turrets. I"m not even going to finish that thought.

So here is this piece, which I hope makes people laugh and think a little bit. I'm hoping more find it funny than offensive. Though of course GLaDOS wigging out about DAers is probably scary enough for some. >_>

(Mind, I think doing what I drew her doing is a bit overkill, note my character shows that sentiment. The thing is, I can't seem to write a properly passive-aggressive-ish GLaDOS line for crap sometimes, so I didn't bother trying...And G is a bit overkill herself on the topic of killing people who piss her off, so... :shrug: )

GLaDOS, that poor scared turret over there, and the combustible lemons are copyright to Valve.

Maybe they got inspired by those anime with freaky homicidal lolis... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Or they like the contrast between the cuteness and the murderous tendencies. It does not irks me, I just tend to imagine GLaDOS more like a cold young woman rather than a killer Miku, despite being fan of chibi cuteness.

...I can see why they think you are cute.

Your humanoid interpretation of GLaDOS is actually my favorite one from what I've seen.
It has a very well-done feeling of maliciousness to it.

Thank you. :D Glad you liked. When I made it, I deliberately tried to stay away from what had been done before. Angled bob? Done before. Tight bodysuit? Done before. Duo-toned hair? Not so much. Long smock like a classic Mad Scientist? Not so much. :D

I think one of the best details is the pale skin. It does a very good job of depicting how cold and machine-like GLaDOS is, while still having a lot of character to it. The whole tone also does a good job of complimenting or contrasting what she's doing at the moment, whether it be comedic or serious. It's a minor detail, but as a film aficionado, I love artistic subtleties like that.

Thank you. :) Yeah I wanted her to be distinctly nonhuman despite having a generally humanoid shape. Pale skin and unusual height and/or proportions generally do the trick. I'm glad you liked it.

I get tired of the whole weird miku loli GLaDOS.
I actually went on a video and explained to those people " GLaDOS is a grown woman. she also likes to kill, talks is a manner that shows dignity, and is sometimes full of bat crap test crazy...and you people make her look cute?"
But atleast there are sane people who draw her as she is in personality. * Sighs in relief*

Great picture, BTW.

thats what i think whenever i see those comics/deviations...i want to know how the hell she ran out of neurotoxin! she pratically makes the stuff!

the only humanizations should be more dangerous andriod/mechanical versions of her that keep the same robotic look that she generally has while looking somthing akin to a person...but thats just a-shitload more dangerous as she can now A)choke you to death B)place your head next to a neurotoxin dispenser and C)toss you into a incineration room now!

np....might i inquire that she use the appeture turret king as a long range artillary peice? or that she just chuck turrets in their direction filled with bullets about 10 at a time and see how many bullets end up in the target? (its science!)

Wow, GLaDOS really looks scary here on the hair part. Her black and white hair reminds me of the tip of the Chinese Writing brush that has write fur and is stained with ink. Are there smoke coming out of her head, because I see the black and red smoke-like stuff there.

The Danged Vocaloids ruin GLaDOS' reputation. Way to go, Actual-GLaDOS! BTW, I'm 12, and I see the truth.

I'm still trying to humanize her, but I can't do it! Got any advice?

Try stuff nobody else has tried with her design. Take a look at what's been done - use what feels right, come up with your own twists. :)
