You may have already seen Anarchangel's request for help with a new species, but if not, allow me to explain.
Our group have decided to create our own new species for use in game while our crew is in uncharted space and we're each doing one. I thought I would take a page out of Anarchangel's book and ask you guys for help depicting mine. For a little bit of an extra challenge, each of the races are based off of randomly generated ideas from an alien species generator and we build on it from there. The base for my species goes like this:
Home-World: Zetauri VIII
Description: A race of tiny bipedal reptiles. Their children are extremely aggressive. They are so dangerous that their parents must keep them locked in isolation until they reach maturity. They are experts in genetic manipulation and rent their services as genetic engineers to neighboring species.
I instantly fell in love with the idea of this species and see them kind of like Rango. An adorable bipedal gecko species. I picture them being about the size of a human head or possibly smaller, for reasons I'll get into in a bit. Their colouration varies through the entire range of the spectrum but they are most typically a brighter and more vivid color at one end of their body, fading to a lighter shade at the other.
My favourite part of this species however is their use of droids. As they are so small and everyone else in the wider galaxy is so much larger than them, Lizargo tend to feel somewhat inadequate and many of them have taken to utilizing humanoid sized droids that they can operate from within. Either from the torso or the head. These droids have a measure of intelligence and are capable of operating on their own but only to follow basic commands from their Lizargo pilot. I do have an image in mind for what I would like these droids to look like but I'm not entirely sure how to link an image here so if anyone accepts my request, I'll do my best to forward you the image.
I admit that I'm not the best at thinking up new species and these guys seem to be just bipedal earth geckos in space but if anyone accepts this request and wants to add anything to them to make them more alien, I'm defineitely open to suggestions.
For the actual image, I'd really like to see either a Lizargo operating a droid, maybe with the face of chest plate open to see inside, or just a Lizargo posing on the droids shoulder. I have no specific background in mind and I'm not even sure if one is really necessary.
I think that's about it. This is only the second time I've ever posted a request here so if I've left out anything, please let me know.
Thanks for taking the time to read my rewuest and I appreciate any help you guys can give me.
Did this ever get done for you?
It did not.
Was this request ever officially accepted? Judging from the comments, Wonderduck was interested but it hasn't been moved to the Taken Requests forum.
at the time of his comments Wondeduck wasn't a member of the guild. If he is doing it, then I'lll mark it as claimed .. but not until he verifies that he is doing it.
