When Ellie was being programmed for her mission to Planet X, one of the ingenious decisions by Professor Strang was to teach her by reading the brain patterns of people in the process of doing various things. He started out small, literally teaching her to crawl first, before moving onto more complex functions.

Eventually, Ellie was “instructed” by experts in their fields. And not just the sciences. She got a heaping helping of artistic programming as well. All in an effort to “…bring up a well rounded representative of what it means to be human.”

These are a few drawings of Ellie putting some of that arts training into practice. Despite her rather heavy metal makeup, she’s really quite agile. Because she has treads instead of feet, she became quite adept at an off-the-ice version of figure skating that can only be described as graceful.
