GLaDOS (with better eye color)

Oh, it's you. It's been a long time. How have you been? I've been really busy being constructed of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. You know, after you murdered me?


Fortunately the Aperture Science Emergency Recreational Building Element Reconstruction Initiative has provided me with a new body. Consequently, testing can recommence immediately.


For Science.


You monster.




As a number of people pointed out, the color of her eye in the previous photos was not quite right. It isn't really as red as it looked in those photos--I used a 1x1 solid orange round--but it still wasn't correct. I finally figured out how to get it right: I changed the round to pearl gold.


Some people had also requested a profile shot. This is harder to do than you might think because of the support structures I built for her, but hopefully this will help.


Speaking of the support structures, I tried something different this time to eliminate the shadows from them: I turned her upside down and took the shot that way, then rotated it in post. This worked quite well, I think.


The "eye" is illuminated by a single Lifelites LED connected to an eLite Basic above her support disc. Since she's supposed to be such a mess of wires and hoses anyway, I decided not to hide the cable by running it through her body, instead letting it just be part of the model.
