Quote from GnaReffotsirk: Go
How would you guys feel if the Xel'Naga were such as illustrated in the image below?
Can't really tell where there eyes and other facial features are supposed to be...
EDIT: Here are some more possibilities I imagined for Xel'Naga designs or that could inspire the Xel'Naga's design. Most of them are water/bug based, if not a mix of both.
TBH, I think Blizzard's idea is not necessarily bad, but I don't like their design. Blizzard's Xel'Naga look like giant bloated space whales, like something that came out of Star Wars or Star Trek. I'd rather have something more brooding, beautiful, yet alien, yet somewhat menacing, but advanced-looking. Something that actually doesn't look like a Zerg unit or like it's weak. Something that has some finesse to it, that doesn't look too bulky, either.
