My style fits well with cyborg themes and I would call my first attempt here a success.
I really liked the pose from this reference image. It seemed very, stern and strong, yet feminine. I tried to figure out how to retain those elements while also, doing what I do best, enhancing the image into something different.
As for the name, AmalgaMATE, it means to mix two things to make them one. I see that here as being the merger between technology and humanity. And, I suppose, you could also see this as being sexual in nature but that's a metaphor for another day.
