That's beautifully done. Especially the subtle shift from more organic parts, as her hand and face, to the very mechanized her thighs. It is a picture which draws me in, and allows me to identify the longer I watch. I probably give it more thought than others, but what does the expression on her face tell me? I see it in context with her fingers carefully grabbing for her back....and her fingertips feel the cold steel. Does she still feel? Or is her perception already gradually shifting to incoming data. She is not in panic at all, and though her face still has no "blank" expression, one can already sense that her ability to undergo human emotional reactions is slowly fading.

It's strange sense as mind filling facts. Just few moments ago she feels as cold her back. It be alarmingly. But now she just knows then temperature delta with her fingers and back equals to n degrees, then hardness and texture of her back is approximately correspond to the metal alloy, she perceives light electromagnetic waves coming from the wires in her back and many other facts from her sensory system...

And I do not think that her emotions fade. No, they are even more accurate. Just emotions are transformed into assessments and will no longer modifiers of perception. And it does not require an immediate reaction, especially in the form of primitive screams and facial reactions. Now they are used for efficiently decision-making.

Now she understands exactly what turns into a robot, it's almost become.
She understands exactly what will not be able to stop it or cancel it. Therefore, she takes an decision not to scream, therefore calms down her face.

Her old life is over. This is a minus. She, generally,  liked her old body, but the new is not yet completed and has not been explored. This uncertainty. She obviously has lost part of the functionality of the body. This is a minus. She is alive - technically. That's a plus. She became durable. That's a plus. She kept free will. That's a plus. Her mind became more efficient. That's a plus.
Conclusion: become a robot is not so bad. Requires further study.

And she smiled consciously =)

So, plenty of practice painting metal, or do you still use some sort of reference?
(wicked!!-esp that you still kept a sense of skeleton to her, like the ribs :D)

Lotsa experience drawing metal surfaces. No reference for this piece. :P Cars are the perfect things to study for shiny metal surfaces. Also, I have this trophy back from HS with a chromed figure on top. I have studied him in various setups to analyze how reflections work on an organic human form.
I like throwing hints of plausibility. For me it's so interesting to try to figure out how a cybernetic human would look under the surface. I like to make the comparison to cars. I can admire the exterior beauty of the line & curves, but I'm also fascinated with all the underlying components how they all come together to make it function. :)

wicked :) Cars.. wouldn't have thought of that first, a wonderful idea :D And soooooo lucky you had that figure, which is another great idea! It all sure paid off :D
