Artistic visions for prosthetic design XIX - from the inanimate towards my animal self

I now got a brand new and enormously satisfying new thing to wear - my new silicon dummy. You don't know how great it feels to know that there are people producing stock items (not even customized designs) such as these silicone cosmetic gloves for prosthetic hands that really give me the illusion of wearing a true replacement part here. Of course I know it's entirely prosthetic and not even too functional in terms of grip power - but my poor suffering soul is comforted. My shoulder is also comforted. And I get by with less clothes. - For a while, that is.

But not for too long, obviously, as design-wise, I was up to no good beforehand already. With a perfect cosmetic arm "at hand" (bwahaha), I feel somewhat relieved from keeping my Becker hands in majority-conforming appearance at all times.

Seeing as if the term "speed" does resonate with me, I let my animal self go ape-shit tonight and see what I came up with - perfect for real action, absolutely and clearly convincing and authoritative in terms of organic race design, and definitely contaminated with "in-command" aura. I am still looking for a look that spells out "proficiency" and this is one further attempt. Historically, it is not too hard to figure out what I did - OK, I first sprayed it red, then white, then I used a range of blues on it; now I removed some of the paint and see what pattern emerges!

See, I figured that such an arm needed to blend in with me. And when the summer is a whopping 35 deg C outside, and when I go for a ride or something, I look worked out, all sweat drip and full action tornado. That, in essence, is also what my arm should look like. No sense to put on the best dress parts as that's just not going on then.

This design idea features a shape- and curvature enhancing blue-red-white blend. It is really oriented towards people that do go down and move, not for stationary display or usage. Also, this is really good industrial design as its applications (sports, moves, hard work) do not damage but can only improve both the design itself and its authenticity. No other prosthetic designer ever came up with that before. You read it here first :)
