Syreen Penetrator Captain

A Syreen Penetrator Captain for the Star Control fan sequel called Project6014 [link] which is based on the Urquan Masters [link] . The pic is loosely based on the original pic here: [link] (Yes. That's the actual size of my reference pic)

In the melee game, she's wearing Fishnet stockings, and controls her ship with what I can only describe as a stripper pole. Her ship looks like this: [link] is called the Penetrator.

The Syreen have always been a tongue-in-cheek kind of hypersexual warrior princess. I tried to keep that feel with this pic.

That's certainly inventive, but is it not even necessary.

You'd think the Mycon's deep children was a myth perpetuated to make have them join the New Alliance of Free Stars, correct? Also, I thought Syeens wear cotton briefs, as in end-frames on scII. But if that's what float her boat, then I guessed it's so.

What do you mean by stripper "poles?" <-But aside from that earth-bound matter, I admire your use of colors. And, btw: The HQ music is awesome.

The control chair would be a modified gynecologist chair, give her a headset so she can sing (to project the hypnotic song), and a couple more foot pads so she can move her legs around to give commands.

The interesting part is that the gynecological chair could allow for another joystick control.

best user interface for an all female crew spaceship EVER

Looks better than Talana's replacement. XD

Ah Moosey! Err... Lucielle. There's been much debate whether to keep her or not. I just threw her in there to go against expectations and get a cheap laugh. Some like her, some hate her.

This may come many years later, but I wanted to just note that Lucielle was a great idea and made me burst out laughing when I first saw her in the demo. Truly, to be sexy metal-bikini-clad vixens is the right of ALL Syreen!

Ah I see - I thought this was going to be a bridge picture for face-to-face communicae. No worries.

Penis-shaped joystick perhaps a tad too much - otherwise good.

:D Perhaps it was! But I was tasked with drawing a half naked woman who pilots a ship that looks like a vibrator and is called the 'Penetrator'. She also controls the ship with what looks like... stripper poles. I couldn't help but continue on with the tongue-in-cheek humor. I asked the team, and they voted to keep it in. And at the game's comm resolution of 243x107 pixels, you don't really see the joystick. Thanks for the comment! :)

Great job! Love the background set design! Love the pin-up aspect of the painting!

a ship that looks like a huge ribbed vibrator with wings, whose most powerful stat is "thrust". That alone wins this.
dczanik's avatar
Ha! I never saw realized the 'Thrust' is the most powerful stat! Good eye!

The blatant Betty Page homage going on here preeetty much seals the deal on just what the Syreen are all about~ ♫ :XD:

(I find it interesting that they would need to display their own stats, in relation to all the other ships in the war. I imagine some species, like say the Shofixti, would choose to live in denial about their actual ship deficiencies... ~^)

Excellent as always! Very pretty indeed.
