STILL TREMENDOUSLY GAY FOR STAR CONTROL 2, BY THE WAY


I started this and worked on it on and off or a long time and in the process kind of forgot what I was doing with it. As far as I can tell, it's just something focusing on all the races in Starcon2 that are friends, or rely on each other in some way. I'm not sure what that Spathi is doing there, but I'm not complaining. WOOO SPATHI.

This is huge too for me (I usually work in 800x600) but the initial sketches kept spreading out further and further so there you go.


I think I used some...hybrid-genesis star brushes for the background here, along with an actual picture of a galaxy if I recall.


The Chenjesu, Mmrnmhrm, Yehat, Shofixti, Zoq-Fot-Pik, Spathi, Utwig, and Supox are (c) Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters which YOU SHOULD BE PLAYING RIGHT NOW, ARE YOU LISTENING? GO PLAY IT NOW. I even tell you how here.

Very cool. XDD for the Spathi as other have noticed; how happy may be now they're below a slave shield.
The background is actually a nebula -NGC 7023-, not a galaxy.

Excellent picture, though I'd expect a Pkunk in the place of the Spathi.

This is such a great pic. Love how you show the bonds between some of the aliens. And of course, the Spathi is perfect.

Hey, what about the Pkunk and the Yehat? Or just the Pkunk. They didn't hate the Freakin' Ilwrath!

I can't believe I haven't seen this pic before !

I really liked the proportions between Supox and Utwig , typically they are portrayed the other way around .
Same goes to Chenjesu - I imagined them in much bigger scale

I see the Supox as big ol plants, haha

looking at it the Chenjesu could probably be bigger, ah well
