After really settling for a narrative I had a better picture of the roles of the characters, and where I want this to go.
So Eels Mcgee's ears looked like an Elves. Ever since I was drawing him this bugged me with maybe trying this parasyte thing with multiple races. Hence these guys:
Seeing the design of other parasite-ish creatures like the facehuggers, necromorphs, clickers... guided me to try mixing pieces of multiple things, bones, muscles... And establish sort of a theme for the infection.
I decided to dive deeper into what the evil my characters are fighting is, so that I could now with a much clearer vision, develop a much richer and consistant general picture of things.
These guys only have mixes of sea creatures mashed into them and aren't exactly infected, but they drive some of the point home.
Now as for the character I don't think it'd be geat to have an Imperius looking dude fighting lobsters and shrimp. So will be adding another character. Good thing is he can be any race, make him sort of a fisherman to keep him within theme, or a pirate or something that's not supposed to hunt fish so that the evil is truly his weakness and there can be a real struggle in this narrative.
I realize I really underestimated the importance of the narrative and now have a lot to add and some to take out, but I also like this a lot better now.
thank you to anyone who took the time to read this
@PeterH I really liked the light source too, I'm gonna try to bring it back into these . It makes the disease recognizable and really pop out in a much more simple and less gruesome way.
@mr_dessin Thank you! Keeping it up! and amping it up!
