These images really should go into the concept art gallery.

It's a shame there are so many dead links in this thread. :(

Some concept about Alien are in the SVN repository
They must be in the Gallery
i will try to find time for do it

(but for the new concept we are stuck as you know because nobody can get approval from.... nobody, i guess the ministery leave his governement without byebye....)

Maybe i will do it for him we will see how happen the things.....
and i m agree with the deus siddis proposal to reduce the number of vessel for a new task list
i always though, the first step must be creating a clear and visual manual of art ... i m working on the Andolian one.. we will see.

A) has utility (pockets and loops and other such things are very useful)
B) is something they grew themselves and wish to show off
C) much to Shaper annoyance covers up portions of their bodies for the sake of interacting with more restrictive cultures (The Shapers think their bodies are works of art by default)

I made this image while on a business trip last fall, then totally forgot about it until I saw this thread again. Here is my understanding of a shaper garment: carbon fiber mesh to provide heat on cold days but still show off the body, a belt to attach stuff, and decorated with genetically-engineered plant life that provides the coverage required to avoid offending non-Shapers. Is this what you had in mind?

The leaves are supposed to be real. Shapers wear living plants, designed by the wearer if they are wealthy. To quote from the wiki:
Shaper clothing tends to fall into one of two very distinct categories. Shapers have exceptionally minimal body modesty, and any wearing of clothing whose primary purpose is to keep portions of the body hidden from sight is done so on account of the modesty of non-Shapers with whom they must interact – after all, the Shaper body is a work of art and science they are proud to display. Shaper work/functional clothes, therefore, act primarily to protect more sensitive surfaces, to keep softer tissues in place during motion/exertion, and to provide convenient places to store objects being used. Such clothes are considered artful to the degree that they do not interfere with the natural Shaper form and movement thereof. On the other hand, as Shaper mastery both of their own body and their environment is very advanced, with clothing for them somewhat superfluous save for statement anyway in most climes and many conditions, Shaper art-wear is something else entirely. High-end Shaper art-wear often takes the form a living, generally translucent expanse of vegetation designed at the protein and genome level by the wearer – anything from a thin film, to a sheet-like wrap, to a crawling expanse of vines, flowering if watered. Those less talented, but financially equipped, will pay top credits to be similarly designed for and decorated. Those in neither situation may opt to obtain a license to perform minor customizations on existing designs, or, for the even lower social rungs, to simply wear something mass marketed – the Shaper equivalent of a cheap suit.

I always imagined that nymphs would have hips, so as to be attractive to men over age 20. :roll:

But perhaps Fendorin is right about Shaper clothing covering more than my sketch. We'll never know until Jack comes back. :(

i thought maybe something as that for shaper:
the living thing as clothe is black on the first but can exist a lot of variety no?
the skin colors must be dark black anyway(canon) but some variety can exist on different planet? some les black some more redblack...etc

Those may need some nipple coverage, but are otherwise great.

However, the leg pouch is completely impractical. The human thigh is the wrong shape to hold any weight strapped to it. I have a pilot's knee board which has elastic straps to attach to the thigh, and they work great when you are sitting down. But they are not designed to use standing -- when you stand up they slip down to your boot. I have also worn reproduction medieval armor, and the weight of the legs is borne by your belt and a strap behind the knee. So the leg pouch, as you show it, would need adhesives to be usable.

They can grow a thigh pouch genetically ;)

Anyone ever thought of trying to 3D sculpt one of the races heads?
I'd try but I'm not very good at it.

I was doing some Bzbr anatomy ideas earlier, legs mainly, just sketching out some stuff, it's quite interesting. If i can get my tablet back from my sister I might try and sketch them out again in Gimp and add some colour. With six jumping legs, each with four segments, I figured that they'd probably look vaguely like coiled springs and be digitigrade, as opposed to plantigrade.

Edit:

Ok so I did attempt to just paint up the hind leg of a Bzbr. I know, just the leg, but it's there anyway in all it's quad-segmented glory...

Image

I'll do a couple of arms or a head, or whatever and maybe, eventually, I'll actually try and put the whole thing together.

I sketched out a concept of an Aera today, but I have no scanner, so it's not available unfortunately.

I do technically have a scanner, it's just that, for some reason it's not working without ink at the moment. Uhm, I can scan it, just that it' in a sketchbook and probably won't scan out very well. Once the ink comes, then I'll try to scan it, see how it comes out.

Camera pics can be another solutions

I took a photo, it actually came out alright.
This was my concept of what an Aera might look like. The head was actually really hard to figure out, because of how the top of the head is the hinged moving part, rather than the jaw itself.

hi boaal is a nice sketches

i think we (peoples trying to concept aera) all turn around same shape for aera body and even head...
i would like to see the rear leg tinest and the front "arm' not as human shaped but maybe more "animal" construction
Other wise for the head and his jaw is always same prblm the i woukd like to cancel this can of head constuction and let something free come

about the foot the aera must have foot more forest/climbing tree adapted than runing no?

i m indeed more interest by your further BZBR concept

Hi, haven't been doing much recently, just started university so everything's a little up in the air right now. But I'll get back to being a little more productive in a while.
