Very nice! I like the 'belly boop' plate & the new wig, Mechnomancer. :^)
* I think the cap is great, and it looks aesthetic. I'm concerned that it may trap too much heat in the actuator housing and overheat the motor?
* The ears are a good initial design, and very cute. Now that you are homing-in on the face proportions however, they seem rather oversized to my eye. If you undertake a redesign for them at some point, I'd suggest you make them a bit more petite, more in keeping with Spud's
cute feminine characteristics.
* I think you have a good idea about the 'forehead fade' for her face illumination. You might also consider making that area more rounded as well, in keeping with your graphical design of the shape of her jaw/chin.
* If you do
go with color e-ink, you can probably place illuminating LEDs embedded within the bezel of her 'helmet' mask -- ala as commonly used in filmmaking for astronaut movies, etc.
* I think you've very close to nailed the general proportions of the face to the rest of the upper body. This is easy to miss, but your pic #1 really shows this clearly as working well already.
She's already come a long way in a short time, Anon. Great progress! Cheers. :^)
