i was thinking we should be more diverse... if all of them look like freaky droids, none of them will be different... tell me how similar a zealot is to an immortal? how similar is a diamondback to a marine?
we should make one humanoid, one animalistic, one a giant heap of wires/tentacles and junk, and some droidish
they shouldn't be limited to one shape, but rather one theme
yes, they should all be junky, but they shouldn't all try to have the same propulsion, shape, size, ect.
also, we need an uber unit (which is obviously more fun to draw, as giant things with guns are more interesting)
i was thinking some kind of massive snake like thing that could burrow, and emerge... remember the thing from transformers: dark of the moon? something like that with a giant multi-sectioned mouth that reveals guns that spin around (like a giant chaingun).
sorry i can't draw this, but i'm busy on other threads, school, guitar, golf, bashing my head into a wall repeatedly, and with some other stuff that i forgot due to my head injuries
Also, just curious, why would they make the SCV round? I would like to know our race's motivation behind some of their decisions. I mean, if you were designing a creature like the SCV; a basic footman in your army, well-rounded and useful 99.9% of the time. What reason would you have making it a little round ball thing?
All I can think is to go SW and have it roll around for speed...
I need more feedback on the concepts. Personally I think they need to have more random metal parts so they wont look like grafted SC2 units. Here's the Droid conecpt now with SCV legs. I don't like the Probe body, I guess we can create an original model for the body and use that SCV arm.
I'm out of ideas for the droid. Feel free to contribute ;-) I won't be able to work on the concepts at least unitl next monday so gather your ideas together and I'll do the same.
Do you guys like the Scout Drone and Clanker ideas? I've been thinking the Clanker could have 3 legs instead of 4. And the legs could be Immortal's, Stalker's and maybe even stranger combinations, like 2 legs and 1 wheel.
The square one? Looks pretty cool, although I would like to give it a car-like lower body, with the square part able to rotate around on top, and the guns sort of sticking off the side like arms... just my thoughts.
Imagine the legs of a thor with the main body of a collossus coming up off of them, its left side and gun are intact, but its right gun is missing along with a portion of its body; grafted to what remains of the thor's right side and arm. Upon its back is the front of a terran battlecruiser, grafted onto the back end is the engines and hangers of a Protoss carrier.
