They keep recruiting younger and younger for the Space Core, don't they? And worse is how they make them stay up so late (almost midnight!). The poor little cutie looks utterly drained as she gets ready for bed, for which she is most grateful on the inside. Pulling her remaining sock off by the toe, with no care of stretching or wearing it, also says a lot to me about how detached she is. It also looks like she's "on automatic" and is taking her clothes off in an unusual order, judging by her panties being the first to go. (Maybe with her legs up to get the socks it just seemed like a good time; or maybe I'm just reading way too much into it.)
On the bright side, I'm failing to find any flaws with the anatomy, especially the differences between her lower legs (which are right for the way she's posed each). And though it's a bit formal, she still looks lovely in her uniform. (It has a little panache of its own as well.)
The overhead grating for the light source, metal panels, and the dust specks say a lot both about her living conditions and her rank in the system overall. However, the beautiful view outside (or monitor view?) and especially the gorgeous flower arrangement liven up her quarters and must make her room special — and make her feel a bit special inside too.
This is a beautifully composed slice-of-life and has a lot of feeling and even story to it. Thank you for creating such a lovely piece, and thanks to ~JeynaElgren for conceiving (and financing and letting you share) it.
And only now did I read JE's comments and see that I was totally wrong about her rank and what makes her feel special. But I got the bedtime thing right.
Well, it was true that she might look detached and be "on automatic", as she had an accident when she was younger and part of her brain was replaced by cybernetics. Also some stolen prototype chip that lets her interface with machines directly. Hehe >.>
She's a bit emotionless and mostly only does things that are a necessity, which is why she has a more or less plain room. Except for flowers she put there in case .. a certain someone visits her quarters.
Aaaand she might be looking..~
(By the by, she did not pay a single credit for the ship, thanks to the chip XD)
And now that I got this one .. I require more Sheena art! But that requires payment and that is .. uh .. *uses binoculars to try and find her money. Just where did it go* >.>
Looking back, I realize I've commissioned a lot more than I ever imagined. Maybe I've even lost track! Most of it... er, pretty much all of it was gifts for friends and others. Every so often I also go through my File of Languishing Ideas to see if some old idea still seems good, then perhaps commission it.
It's a nice bit of hope you've thrown in there, Sheena being at least a open to the idea of intimacy. Have you written and stories or done any write-ups of her back story and tales? For my own detailed ideas lots of it stays my head anyway, though I do make extensive notes files for anything more than a fleeting thought.
