Infested Terran by *Mr--Jack. From the suggester: "I think he did a bang up job - it's even better than the official design." It definitely is fantastic and worth checking out!

latest in a long line :D

I was a bit worried about this one but seems to've been relatively unfounded, I think. I've worked out that this process is not for the faint-hearted; there were a lot of points during this painting where I just thought; nope, this ain't working . . . But I knew that all the others had gotten through that stage fine, so 'twas all good. A bit of different texture helped ease the monotony, too, so woo! to that.

I took a screencap so I'll put the video up tomorrow (I need sleep now). Enjoy!

EDIT. Video's up. Pity about the music, but anyways... Perhaps I shouldn't've used the album version.
You get the point without it.

Alas.... For the Swarm.

Awesome! i think you have really captured what Zerg is in this picture. it gives the feeling of ''grotesc-ines'' that zerg are. Love it! especially the tentacle that is crashing through the helmet also gives the feeling that the marine died/got infested under horrible circumstances. The best of all your work. Keep it up!

I'm no starcraft fan, though I not a hater too~
But this piece.... I think I became the former.

Terrible pic. By terrible, I mean it makes me believe that this man was once happy as a marine until he was brutally infected and now serves the Swarm. Mindless and zombie like. With a small thought in his subconscious that is probably still human, begging and pleading to himself that hopefully he wakes up from this nightmare.

I think I'm over thinking this. Awesome pic man!
Well, you aren't too far off. These guys have a timed life, and when they expire, they appear to shoot themselves in the head.

Nah, he's probably going like "serve the hive, fuck yeah!" every 5 minutes, having a grand ol' time.
SedatedRabbit's avatar
Well, that's a better view than mine, that's for sure. He looks like he loves it, except for the whole explodey thing at the end.
Forzatoadx's avatar
But they don't explode anymore in 2, don't they? They even shoot, I think
SedatedRabbit's avatar
Holy crap, really!
Forzatoadx's avatar
Yeah, there's normal infested humans, that claw things, and then there's infested marines, that are like normal marines but a lot slower. I guess they decided to not make them explode anymore since there's the banelings for that in this game
