Star Control

Allright, here's a little Star Control fan-art page I've compiled from various posts here and there. It's not polished or finished, but there's some stuff for you to look at at least.

Star Control Project Revisited

Yeah, I have another server. I registered a firm name, Android Arts ANJ. Had to tack on ANJ on the end, which kinda sucks. In Sweden we can't have - crap, I can't even translate the word - 'nurture-activity-descriptive' names for firms. Electronic Arts wouldn't be allowed for example, not under the present rules anyways. I guess this is also why we see a lot of stupid Web2.0 names like Quambo Jambax Liveblogzap.

I'm working on a logo of some sort.

Bionic Commando Roughs

Just playing around here with some quick rough concepts. Bit of a sci-fi take on the details, but the general shape and color placements are (with exceptions) somewhat close.

Star Control

It is time to revise my Star Control stuff again. The older stuff I had made was needlessly unfaithful. With enough revisions it's possible to get a redesign close to the source without sacrificing much likeness.

In the case of the Thraddash, the communications image contradicted the smaller melee pilot image. There's also dialog information and music to consider when shaping a redesign. I don't care for the voices, so the music works as a voice for me when I read the dialog.

The Thraddash are brutes, like an anthropomorphic rhino/boar/hippo. I suspect they were based on the G'nunk from Starflight since they respect combat prowess. The Melnorme has the following to say about the Thraddash:

"To make a Thraddash your friend, kill him -- but then of course, he's dead so what's the point?"

At first I wanted to combine some brute looking animal with both the Comm and melee image to make something new, but then someone suggested that the melee image is actually a pilot or combat suit of some kind. I think this solution was much better. Doing an in-between design is like... having people in antarctic and egypt dress the same based on the average temperature... or like democracy.

It seems my site died btw. I got another server I can use though, so we'll see what happens.
