AndrAIa: I Do I Do by Hawkstone AndrAIa: I Do I Do by Hawkstone
Winner of the ReBoot: Definitive Mainframe Edition art contest.

A while ago an artist I follow on Deviantart drew an AndrAIa sketchcard. Which reminded me that oh yeah, ReBoot was awesome!

So I rewatched seasons three and four. Some of the animation is not that great by 2010 standards, but the stories are–once they got past the Rocky Raccoon kid stuff and aged Matrix and AndrAIa up. And once they got past season two and could do female characters that didn’t have one boob that went straight across.

Speaking of which.

I dunno how recent the “who wants Trident” commercials are in people’s memories, but “four out of five viral binomes recommend not getting a pointed stick shoved up their ass” didn’t really have the same zip.

I still love ReBoot and the animation back then amazes me still.
You did an amazing job bringing out AndrAia's character.

By the way, it's not so much that they couldn't have female characters with separate breasts. They couldn't have female protagonists with separate breasts. You know, what with sex being evil and all. If you look at Dot, Mouse, and Hex in the first two seasons, their cleavage depth is in direct proportion to their position on the moral spectrum. I call this the S1 Boob Differential.

That's amazing! I remember that Mouse didn't have monoboob but it never occurred to me why.

And of course, the worst of it is, this was imposed upon animators who, once given the opportunity, based their new female leads' body types on their favourite strippers. I am informed that they wanted to make an animated version of Playboy's "Little Annie Fanny". You can see where they and the censors were a bit at odds. (No wonder Dot rebooted as Elvira first thing in season 3. Celebration of freedom, anyone?)

It took me some time to realize it, but yeah. Kinda makes me wish there'd been more adult humanoid females in the early seasons, so I could do an entire lineup. Three's a small sample, but still very telling.

Ah, ReBoot. One of the last cartoons I tried to follow regularly. And sure, the animation may not be quite up to today's standards in 3D, but really, Mainframe was pioneering the art; without their work on ReBoot and Beast Wars, it's questionable whether the medium would be as far as it is today. And I definitely agree the show got a lot better when they aged the kids up to adults.

You've done a good job here. Nice shading, and a really dynamic pose.
