Inspired by Windona’s fic featuring the Reach Scientist (Seriously? that’s her name!?). A lovely story, check it out if you can! Heavily features the Scientist and Jaime, and their interactions.
Ok, so it’s not directly inspired, but it did kinda lead me into the direction of this pic. I’m not sure if the Ambassador and the Scientists are related, how closely related, or just if she works for him. ^^ I have this weird little headcanon that they are related in some sense, perhaps like a brother and sister? Like the relationship between Jaime and Milagro, but as if it turned out waaaaaaaay for the worst. Like… the Ambassador was really cool when he was younger, but as he got his own ship and then was put in charge of conquering planets, then you know, turns a bit crazy.
Orrrrrr, maybe I just wanted to draw some cute reachlings… If someone writes kid!Ambassador or kid!Scientist, I will go bananas.
^^ Hope you guys have been doin' well! Here's another round of BB designs, but this time, I've taken a different route! Taking another stab at designing the reach warriors.
I wanted to try my hand at redesigning some existing Reach warriors that I'm... somewhat familiar with. There's not a lot of info to work with, I don't even know what species these aliens are, so for some of them, I really took them to a different direction... because I could, baw baw baw! I think the only thing that I really wanted to keep intact is the fact that these guys are completely covered head to toe, and that each one has some indication of cold heat (the really bright blue areas on their body that emit light)
BIGGER VERSION HERE I hadn't done character design in a while, so this was pretty fun. It's actually an older piece, like a month or two old, just posting it now. XD And of course, being on a blue beetle kick, how could I not try my hand on everybody\'s homicidal scarab, Khaji Da? Now, if you watched "before the dawn," this wouldn't make sense for that universe, but how cool would it be if Khaji Da was originally a Reach Warrior that got stranded on Earth 5000 BC, and was the ultimate influence of the Egyptian aesthetic? SUPER COOL. I love Khaji Da in beetle form, but I always thought it would be so neat if he actually had a warrior form that he was prior to just being the scarab. I mean, maybe the alien that he took over died from old age and that’s how he’s stuck as a scarab, or maybe that’s his true form. Actually, another thing I was thinking, was that maybe Jaime actually has "stages" of transformation, so this would be like his Stage two, sorta like how Iron Man has his Mark II, III, IV and so forth... I obviously based his look on the egyptian pharaohs (or did they base their looks on him? *wink*). This was really fun to do.
