Meet Miss Pauling by uberchain Meet Miss Pauling by uberchain
***BIG EDIT***: Updated deviation to match Miss Pauling's recent Expiration Date look more closer.

ED dress/outfit version wallpaper is here
 if you would like that version instead: www.pictureshack.us/images/819…

Some say Pauling is nothing more than a shipping Smurfette/unnecessary NPC whose purpose is to balance the male-to-female ratio and don't even talk to me about how she was treated in ED I'm just glad it was implied she was still "job above all" at the end of it. I see Pauling as more than that and as a woman who should not be underestimated - sure, the woman may seem calm, withdrawn and polite when need be, but let's look at the bigger picture other than just your average normal human being: any average normal human being brave enough to hang around nine men who are not entirely right in the head + be the right-hand person to who has to be easily the most terrifying woman on the planet next to her Portal counterpart voiced by the same voice actress...is probably an average normal human being to be reckoned with.

EDIT: So there's a couple of misconceptions as to what exactly's going down in here and whether or not Pauling just whooped everyone's ass or she's the unlockable 10th Class needed to save the day because everyone's ass just got whooped. I went more towards the latter route, but if your headcanon states otherwise go right on ahead and assume the former. :lol:

This was made before a replica model was released. What we always have to remember is it's not too big a concern about what she looks like - it's that she can always kick our ass. :lol:

I'm personally not a big fan of her chin (on both models actually), it makes her look considerably older than she actually (or probably) is.
Kinda like a wicked witch or perhaps even the Administrator herself.

Besides, this rendition of Miss P definitely looks far more threatening and easier to take seriously than her predecessor. I mean, the newer model makes the old one look like she's sleeping with her eyes open in front of the camera. 

However, you retained that crappy old camera lens and positioning which still has that awful 'perspective distortion' (look at the Heavy for instance, and does so much of the back part of the Medic's body have to be shown?). You need to get ALOT more comfortable with moving the camera further away from the scene and increasing the size of that lens (reducing/limiting the perspective). It may also help if you move the camera a little bit downwards and aimed it up at Miss Pauling in order to give her more of an evangelical or goddess-like impression. But that might kill off the 'more neutral, cold Battlefield-3 look' you might've been subconsciously aiming for.

Anyway, that's a great concept you've got there to put the spotlight on Miss P.
Hooyah.

Tried both out. I do agree with your criticism and I did like moving the camera back and moving in just to fix the perspective - which is something I would have normally done since I'm a little more careful about doing that nowadays compared to last year. :) It definitely destroys any distortion; I think I kept the shitty angle for the sake of swapping back and forth in a B&A between the old model and the new model and seeing the differences as well as what's the same, more for the people who were like "THAT'S NOT THE OLD MODEL NO GODDAMN WAY". It would be nice to fix up though and provide that version as well for the sake of a non-wonky fisheye lens.

Now, if only the .dmx I last saved with the current version you see which included facial changes and prop-changing w/ new lighting DIDN'T FUCKING CORRUPT :crying: 

I actually think her Expiration Date model looks way younger (and acted younger and a little off than the comics, IMO) than what she looks like in the comics or compared to Rebbacus' model. While I have a lot of bone to pick with the chin as well since the mouth seems off in placement with how narrow and long the chin is, the official model's larger eyes and the bigger head, as well as giving me Elizabeth Bioshock vibes, seemed like the off-factor for me especially looking at the official Scout Mom's model proportions with her. There was something about her head too that seemed rounder than it actually was, but upon staring at about all of her appearances and comparing them together, her design just hasn't been consistent enough, so they just went with whatever.

I'm well aware of the inconsistency factor with Miss Pauling's design, it's just that with the release of EXPD I thought Valve had pretty much determined a solid design for her.
Basing my judgement on that circumstance I decided to highlight the 'errors' with the Miss Pauling model in this image and discuss about what we can do about them and how bad (or good) they really are.

I love the job you did with the second updated image (with the camera pointed upwards), in my opinion it looks like something Valve would actually make, (in a draft state that is).

I can certainly see that sort of composition in a splash image for an update. In terms of update, I was thinking more model front and forward, left focus, with things happening in the background blurred out as the text occupies the very far space. But I'm humbled, thank you! :D

The only way to fix the inconsistencies with this model would probably be a completely remodel of the face, which I would not be opposed to (nor would I be opposed to a full actual model based off the one we saw either if Valve has no intention of releasing it). There's a long way to go for Rebbacus to look like Valve's (and even then, her V2 that was never released is probably not going to see the light of day), but I wouldn't be surprised if somebody's already doing a replica model right this instance.

It's funny actually, spy is supposedly the best espionage agent money can buy, yet Pauling can do his job three times better without even having to use any of his fancy gadgets.

Beyond being "The Secretary", Pauling has been classified at this point as "The Cleaner". She cleans up bodies, she makes sure everything is in order, and she's the liaison between the Administrator and both RED and BLU without them knowing it. But she is definitely somebody who can give the Spy a run for his money - the greatest disguise of a terrifying, morbidly casual assassin comes in the form of a petite woman with glasses. :)

I think Meet the Dumpster Diver certified that as her official theme - with the new TF2 short movie out, "Dapper Cadaver" could work out pretty well until the fighting scene, then perhaps some new music is in order. :lol:
