Lavender the Witch
I've been meaning to post this for a long time...
Lavender the Witch, my submission - as well as 2nd placer in the witch category - for the old DB7 Halloween Artbot contest!
Lavender here was made without references; she was only built having two things in mind: One, to actually look like a witch, and second, to make her capable of flight.
The artbot itself took me at least three days to create, and half of that time used to balance the broom well enough for it to fly, even with a heavy witch in tow. Hoverblades hidden inside of her makes steering easier, and also serves as a backup movement should her broom inevitably crashes into bits and pieces.
I took great strides in order to make this artbot both aesthetic and sleek - that is, it can fly without exposing the thrusters behind it all (literally; it should be fairly obvious where I crammed all the thrusters in). Some mobility is sacrificed, but all's fair for artbots.
It's by no means perfect, and sometimes turning is a pain, but I really had so much fun trying to make the concept work reliably enough for me to use, and that's good enough for me!
