Upgrade by MisterMech Upgrade by MisterMech
Well, finally got around to doodling Blackjack as of Chapter 53 with her upgraded limbs.

The bottom comic is just in good fun. :D

I just love that design; simple, but still cool.  Do you think you'll get around to her latest "upgrade"?

Okay so she went from legitimate eyes, to black pac men.  I don't know how you do it.

The eyes on the first picture really make it pop! Love it! And also, I really like the silly Mickey-Mouse-esque eyes on the bottom. :P

I like this picture. And I find it cool that even though she's gotten even more upgrades, you still made her look kind of pretty.

Of course, you also said you forgot to do the eyes, but whatev.

The design reminds me of Shepard's armor... And the "died and got put back together with cybernetics" is what happened in Mass Effect 2...

I don't remember the part where he replaced her eyes with Pacman.
Seriously though, I love that old-cartoonish style. It's very funny. Wouldn't it be great if someone animated one of the songs from the shows like that! Although, I'm not sure how you'd pull off the waggy-finger-dancey-thing with ponies...

You know what? I didn't like black-armored Blackjack until I saw your drawing of it. The only critique I can muster is that her eyes look like flesh-eyes.

Honestly, I myself am not too fond of Blackjack's new upgrades. She just keeps losing more and more of herself.

And you got me on the eyes there. I focused on the leg designs so much I completely forgot her eyes were fake too.

I think that's kind of the point, really. I mean, what if this turns into an even bigger existential crisis for her? You know, like the Ship of Theseus paradox.

I'm reminded of Battle Angel Alita for some reason, especially that part in Last Order where she freaks out after finding out what Desty Nova did with her brain.

I foresaw this long in advance. Her old limbs couldn't handle the excessive strain she was putting on them. What little left of her that was flesh and blood was being run completely ragged, as usual, but it was even worse, because the implants enabled her to push herself well beyond the limit of what living tissue can safely manage in terms of trauma. It was only a matter of time before her little support team started integrating piecemeal powered armor components.

The perk notification at the end of Chapter 53 hints that her newly-reinforced spine and sub-dermal armor are supposed to act as a mounting frame for add-on components. I wonder what kind of crazy hardware they'll rig her up with next? Just watch; after conquering her fear of heights, she'll probably end up turned into a cyber-alicorn with prosthetic wings or boosters or something and get into a climactic aerial battle with you-know-who.

Just love the look you got for her in the main picture. And the bottom two are hilarious, Blackjack truly is the one pony you could ducktape a tennis racket and a mailbox in place of her legs and shed still keep going. :D

A couple of others have already commented on it, but Blackjack's face does look a little different from how you usually draw it, and not in a bad way at all. It's hard to pin down exactly what, but I think it's just a little bit of difference in the shape of the eyes and jaw. Looks nice!

At the rate she goes through limbs... this maybe for the best, since she can more easily acquire replacements in the field.

On the plus side, she's got someplace else to keep whiskey bottles.

We can rebuild her.
We can make her faster, stronger, more capable than ever.
We have the technology.
But we don't want to spend a lot of money.

Pffffthahahahaaha! Reminds me of Steamboat Willie almost with those eyes below. Part of me just adores the loose Pipbuck on the plunger and that it too two rulers taped together. Nice grin for early in the morning before I'm off to work!

On the main picture though, I do particularly like how you've blended angular with thick and weighty. It's a good balance given the whole idea was that she came from the mesh of Shadowbolt and Ranger armour customised together. You can definitely see the influences of both in there to some extent. Seems appropriate too for more 'war ready' armouring too given it covers its own joints like a knight's armour than her first design that was more general 'cyber.'

Furthermore? I love that shoulder design of Rover. A small thing perhaps, but I just love the way it actually crosses over itself from the middle outwards and back. Much more interesting than just a bunch of straight down lines.
