    I was really bored in class one day and designed one. It ended up looking like a 3 way cross between a fade, a lerk, and a dragon with a substantial neck. Unfortunately, I a. do not have a working scanner atm, b. lacked blank paper during class so it was on lined paper, and c. lack skills to make it post worthy. It was supposed to breathe fire out of two little jet-vein type things that came to it's mouth (I'd recently watched Reign of Fire because I was sick). I was thinking more along the lines of a NS2 (hopefully) alien, when vehicles are an actual possibility, and the aliens needed some forms to fight these.

    [edit: Fixed insane number of spelling errors.]

    Well, I didn't came up with this concept, it was introduced in the "Suggestions & Ideas Forum" some time ago:

    A Kharaa Barnacle
    Link to the original threat: Kharaa Barnacle
    In essence, it's like the original barnacle from Half-Life (if you don't know HL singleplayer, shame on you).
    I've just done a concept-drawing, trying to convert it to the Natural-Selection "Style":

    I know that it looks a bit too similiar to the current defense chambers, but I can't edit it any more. If you want a more detailed description, read the thread mentioned above...

    You can DRAW deunen! They are soooo good.
    Ack... I have the drawing skills of a comatose l0rk.

    But perhaps I will do something who knows. Hey! there is paper and pens around me.

    Deunen; I would love to see your bird-like chickenwalker... animal, thing, attacks. I mean, most obvious lvl1 would be Peck, I guess, but those spines on its torso... I can imagine it now...



    A whole army of killer-attack birds peforming hip-thrusts in the marines general direction.... biggrin.gif

    An old idea... this was a hypothetical Class 6 alien, a water specialist (disregard the lack of water in the maps).  It's about 10 feet long, and probably would have had a Devour ability (this was pre-2.0).

    OMG! I wouldn't care if there was water or not, I would just gestate to that alien because it would scare the crap out of me if it dropped on me as a marine.

    EDIT: As for my idea, I'd probably go with some sort of land-snake, wallclimbing intact, with a tail whip and a "constriction" attack, where he grabs a marine, and squeezes the breath out of him. A bite attack also and some sort of bonus movement in water would be a plus. (to tie in with Coil's concept.)

    My crappy attempt at creating one!! haha which i call the "GLURM".
    It's like the evolution BEFORE the skulk, in its Wurm type phase ... not having many attacks except "Bite", "tail whip" and "Acid Vomit" (hehe, i like that one biggrin.gif )

    Sweet! Very very nice! smile.gif

    Did you draw this and then scanned it?
  • WilkinsWilkins Join Date: 2003-03-15 Member: 14556Members Posts: 196
    Yup. That's all I do right now. I draw by hand with a pencil, ink it over, erase the pencil lines, and then load it up in photoshop, and the rest is obvious wink.gif

    Damn, your art skills are great... smile.gif

    I always wanted to draw out my imaginations, but... I just didn't get the 'art talent', it seems... sad.gif

    anyone can draw good, it just takes a lot of practice, and I mean a lot, and the ability to draw is to see.

    I am no good drawer, but I hope someday I will be.
