Head study of Suki by amberchrome Head study of Suki by amberchrome
Suki is another OC from the "Visitation" RP. She's an Israeli-bred F-16 who is 1/4 Mirage on her mother's side. Suki is a mid-thirtysomething and likes to go for young men in a "cougar" kind of way, and perhaps teach them a few new things. She's famous that way.

I'm guessing her entire canopy is blacked out, whereas Amara mainly a line the heighth of her eyes that stretches to the back of the canopy. Is Suki a little bulkier than her too?

Markings vary between them, yeah. Suki has a fuller mask than Amara does, with a little bit of grey on each side of the "canopy", which is opaque. And if aircraft are a living species, there will be genetic variance between individuals of the same breed, just as there are variances between different production blocks of the same model in the real world. So Suki is a little more bulked-out, and has more of a "spine".

I see what you mean about her built; I saw some pictures of Israeli F16s and they do have more bulk to them than the standard ones. Mean looking suckers.

That's what I figured too. When we paint our aircraft in a tactical gray paint scheme, the blue gray paint (on top of the aircraft) is generally never always the same, there is allowed a 10 per cent difference in variation according to the pub. Some have a nice fade that goes into blue gray and some have a tight line.
I also thought of a new theory behind living mechanian paint. I would think that each one, no matter what genus, produces a natural pigmentation, like your's, to combat corrosion or whatever else. When one hires onto a company or enlists in the military, that organization can stimulate the skin of the individual to produce a certain pattern as that required by the company. When one retires, they could just, simply go back. Bare metal or composites are extremely rare to see, only when one loses a paint job only to create a new one, and there are generally three layers of protection: some use and alodine coating (depends on what material), a primer, and finally the paint. This paint is very flexible and quite durable. Older mechanians generally have to be artificially painted as their paint glands don't function like they use to, which is another cause why they corrode more as they get older.

Yes, like Adriana, she's very fond of men, except she's older and likes'em younger, around college age.
