The Poor Thing by DeepChrome The Poor Thing by DeepChrome
Okay, I started thinking about my humanized PotatOS design, and realized it would be kinda awesome, and a bit different, if she were tiny, like the size of the actual potato.

Basically she is not chibi, I couldn't draw chibi to save my short sad life so... >_> The idea is to show the difference in size and power between her normal mode and the potato, and I realized Tiny!PotatOS is both endearingly cute, and emotionally moving. So here we are.

I'm thinking instead of getting stabbed onto the portal gun, she kinda ends up with a prong going through a hole in her shirt, and she finds it more practical to just hang off the shirt, seeing as she can't really go anywhere very fast. Either that or she has Chell duct-tape her to it.

I also decided instead of that silly head bandage, she would just cover up the fact that the goddamn bird pecked out her red "aperture" eye by covering that area like usual with her hair. Since it symbolized her crazy, homicidal side, which she doesn't show when she's in the potato, I liked that idea better than the one I had for the original potatOS design.

The other change I made was tearing up her outfit some more. This came out of some advice I gave *TwinklePowderySnow regarding her potatOS concept, and realized mine could stand to get a bit grunged up, too. I also settled for making her hair more messy too.

So, there we are. Tiny Sad-Sack PotatOS, who's really kinda shook up by the whole thing.

PotatOS is so cute! Wait! *Portal out Hard Light Bridge as a shield to shield myself from your GLaDOS in case she throws Combustible Lemons, repulsion gel, using her flamethrower to burn me etc. for calling her cute.* Poor girl or lady or robot! It is scary and depressing for anyone whose power has been taken away all of a sudden and has never been outside but is all of a sudden. I want to pat her! Won't hug her because I am not comfortable with hugs and she's too small. With messy hair and tattered clothes, she does kinda look emo.

I notice you worked with Twinkle too! Love her stuff, and now yours too! It there a group where all of you are connected? (Like with the comic artists' 'Fresh Epics' group?)

That was the idea - I figured it'd be neat to play with the size, as my "normal" humanized GLaDOS is probably six foot three. :D Thank you.

My reasoning is if she ever bothered to build an android body, she'd want it to tower over any test subjects or humans she'd use it on....soo....bit of a Darth Vader effect, if you will. :nod:

... i would want to hug potato GLaDOS, too... but i think i would squeeze her to death... effortlessly...

... so instead i would give chell some barbie doll clothing and tell her to "have fun".

Good. That was the idea. ^_^

I wanted her to be huggable, for people to say "oh my god the poor thing, let me hug you."

She's not the scary omnipotent super-AI right now, so...she's...approachable, I think the word is? :D

Also, thank you.

I love your idea of making her tiny by the way, it's suitably humiliating (if the hideous clothes weren't already enough! XD), and also rather adorable. c:

Thank you. :) And yeah for some reason I can imagine your PotatOS hugging mine. Don't ask me why, it's just a derpy idea that I may have to draw. Maybe a multiple-potatOS grouphug? XD

I have this crazy notion that if I ever attempt a Portal cosplay, I may modify a Barbie doll to look like her, and take it with me. XD Bonus points if I ever cosplay my humanization. (Oh why oh why did I have to design one that doesn't have glasses?!!)

Aww yes, you should draw that! Our PotatOSes both need hugs, methinks. -_-

That is such a cool idea! I always loved modifying Barbie dolls. XD
Btw, sorry I'm taking forever to respond to your comments... I have a hug backlog. ^^;

Absolutely! Where'd she get those in this Portal universe by the way? When Wheatly humiliated her by shrinking her he just gave her the closest clothes on hand that would fit?

Aperture has manufacturing facilities, and lots of mashy plates. Not that hard to make a tiny android, clothes to fit it, and then the means to grunge them up horribly. :D
