Hmmm... the one in question seems to have six fingers... perhaps one of the Sons of Plunder? ???

If Cannonshop, Gio, or even Liam's Ghost want to claim it they are free to.  I'll give them first choice on that.

WiP.  Kind of wanted to slightly mimic the Orca look, and the paint scheme will definitely reflect that. Out of respect to the excellent writing team, won't use one of the named AIs, and the ship will be a homage to the unfolding universe.

Thanks to Cannonshop helping me remember something call back character time that's going to get a bit more featured now:


Olivia Hazard Perry


Betty Laffey

And since Tabby has multiple personalities Cannonshop wants this one for the other one:

I stuck to stock for mine, but I definitely like the mods you made.  My own take on the Tabiranth and Sybil Ludington are third post into this thread:

My more memetic ‘Mech minis are in the first two posts.

Feels a little young for Esme but the bot does not do middle aged very well but otherwise I kind of like this one for her:



And he wanted a Granny Tabby for when both personalities are manifested as one at the same time so I was able to eventually get this:



And an improved Mister Seron since I forgot he was an Elemental before:



As usual since these are Cannonshop's characters he can over-rule me.

Cannonshop wanted something a bit more inhuman looking for Erin so I managed to coax this out of the bot:



After suggesting it yeah this probably does work better for the false Cameron:

I was also able to get this out of the bot as an alternate updated Billie Hoel:



Does not look quite as old as the other but the face structure looks more like the Alice image I put in the thread earlier.

So I can go with either/or.

So I was halfway through my reply and scrolled down too hard on my phone, which caused the page to refresh, dumping my response, so now I'm more irritated than the leg that had me spend my weekend in the hospital.

Ive been struggling with finding a representation of Noriko Murakami.  Murakami is serious one moment, but has an underlying sense of humor , and almost whimsy, about her. Age range for most of these generators sucks, too, because Murakami has to be at least 65 years old in 2760.  Yes, Star League Healthcare will help with that, but she's not going to look like a barely-past-teens anime character like so many of these do. That's especially funny, since the historical Sybil Ludington actually was 16 when she made her ride.  But, yeah, I've attached the closest I was able to do with one of the AI generators.

So, I needed 40s, serious but whimsical, and I came up with perfect person: Keiko Agena.





So, yeah, Agena in 2023 is the perfect picture of Admiral Murakami.

I can edit the pictures to fix the hands.  I've had to do it couple times.

Y'know there was a certain other character that was described as having six fingers that also happens to be a parent...

Serion ain't one of them, he has no thumb.

Nope.  Think other side of the conflict...  Perhaps someone rather important.

So yeah I decided that other Billie image does work rather well for the False First Lord and Director General.

And since one of the things me and Cannonshop got around to talking about is we do need to build up the human cast a bit because the AIs are constantly having to rotate through job roles that really need more continuity than they can provide to support various things and the only real reason I can justify it working as well as it has for as long as it has is because they are AIs.

I already know this is Betty Laffey's human Captain:



Kevin Armington.

Still working up more.

Getting the bot to do something that looks 30s-40s is actually really tough.  50+ I've had some success but even that is limited.

And messed around with the bot some to get this for a human character to take over in Billie Hoel's staff roles:


Phillipe Bertin

So yeah getting AOM3 in particular to do anything reasonably 30-49 not very easy but 50+?  I can get it to work now and again.

Tried my usual prompts with Counterfiet(I'm not as fond of it's art style personally, not saying it's bad, just not my cup of tea) for Olivia Hazard Perry as a counterpoint:
