    Arrakthura - The Weapon
    inpired from J Absinthe's post in the suggestion thread. Thx J Absinthe

    A weapon hunted by all.
    A weappon with a will of it's own, that merges with the true virtues and sins of the one who helds the handle.
    Some say it talks.
    Some say it can look you in the eye.
    Some say it's like a sword others... describe it as a cannon... it has so manny shapes no one can say what's true.
    Some say it has God's powers and will.. some say it's forged by devil and only serves the evil.
    If you can, noble artist... tell us, SHOW US... Arrakthura...
    Now... concept!

    ______________

    Topic elements:
    remember, It's a character... not just an object

    1 = It's a weapon.
    2 = Can be handled by man.

    Oh you, Oblio...*bats eyelashes*

    My scanner is on the fritz, and I'm still reeling from the cherry popping entry that was The Dreamcatcher. I think I'm gonna play spectator this round.

    edit: Bow dow! I fixed my scanner/printer! I think I'll sketch some stuff up today and see how it goes.

    CHOW #41 - Arrakthura - The Weapon

    The Arrakthura was bred by biological engineers as a future weapon for the army. It is a selfcontained walking, thinking and most of all, energy ball shooting weapon. The arrakthura can be ridden by man, even if it purely for directional purposes. Once the Arrakthura has locked onto its target the human rider had little to no influence on the walking weapon. Best bet is to get of as soon as possible because the Arrakthure tends to jump right into the heat of a battle. Since its shielding and other parts heal very quickly and because it was engineered to feel no pain the Arrakthura is considered one of the worst foes to meet on the battlefield. The bioframe is enhanced by some mechanical parts. The eyes are fitted with all kinds of extra sensory machines allow it to see in the dark and sense heat. It also has a digital aiming view mounted on its nose/barrel for long distance aiming. The Arrakthura rarely uses this, it prefers to get close on the target and blast away.

    Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
    4 extra votes will be offered for the description.

    what exactly does that mean
    up to 3 votes, 1 for each representation
    and 1 extra for a description?
    or 3 votes up to....however many for each representation plus 4 votes for a description
    iif its the latter isnt that a little steep?
    kind of nullifies alot of the voting process seeing as how some entries just get 9 or ten in the first place and some get 30 or more
    i mean its not as if someone would totally disregard the subject and get 50 votes if it is obviously not on point

    sue me if im wrong
    i dont think i can participate in this due to my enormously swollen and painful finger but i will be keeping an eye on it

    I think that is confusing too. And unnecessary. You are all artists here primarily right?

    By the way, where do we get to vote for the last topic, Dreamcatcher?

    Dude, I wasn't even thinking about Soul Calibur when I made it up, but when I started sketching today, all I could envision were Nightmare rip-offs.
