    X-Com - The Chryssalid - ORTHO

    Here we are at CHOW #52 - ready to shock again:
    We have the pleasure of havig a legendary designer as our guest:
    Julian Gollop is the creator of the X-Com series and he has a topic for us today.
    Here he goes:
    __________________________________________
    Hi Andrei,
    So the character I have chosen is a re-imagining of the most feared
    alien from X-Com - The Chryssalid.

    Description:

    The Chryssalids one of the main alien terror species in the PC game
    'X-COM: UFO Defense'. They are roughly humanoid in size, with an
    insect-like exoskeleton and menacing claws. They strike fear into X-Com
    soldiers in a major way. The reason? They turn civilians into zombies by
    injecting a parasitical Chyssalid spore. Since the Chryssalids attack in
    densely populated civilian zones, the task of the X-Com commander
    becomes perilous. Every civilian is a potential zombie recruit, but it
    is much worse than that. A new Chryssalid will emerge from a zombie in a
    frighteningly short space of time. It is entirely possible for an X-Com
    commander to find his squad transformed into a horde of Chryssalids,
    with no hope of salvation.

    The task is to re-imagine the Chryssalid. How can it's parasitical
    nature be portrayed? Perhaps it has some human genetic material combined
    with its own? There could be a hint of some human features mixed with
    something horribly alien. For added effect, the creature can be
    portrayed shedding its human-zombie host.

    Here are some informational links:

    This is probably one of the games I have spent more time playing in my life!
    I was thinking about participating until I saw it is supposed to be a ortho challenge... lets see, I'm not a big fan of this ortho stuff he he!

    I'm in too... I've got this idea that I think could be terrifying as hell, if I can just pull it off.
    Also, I love how you guys (Oblio) are pushing for collaboration between the different groups on this site.

    This sounds like fun. I like insect bipeds.

    I may be dating myself with this admission, but I have not played the game. Is there any chance we can get a good link to the old version of the Chryssalid. I've googled it, but I'm coming up with very small images and what appears to be fan art in some cases...

    Just a quick preliminary sketch throwing ideas around. I'll do orthos next. I might have to do a little redesign to make him a bit less....uhhh....phalic.

    EDIT: Ok here's the ortho. A bit rushed due to X-mas chaos.

    CHOW #53 - Guest Host: Julian Gollop - Topic: X-Com - The Chryssalid - revamp

    The most feared alien race in the known galaxy, the Chryssalid, has stalked the black void of space for countless millennia. Watch your six, and don't drop the soap! Because in space... no one can hear you get sodomized by a hulking alien crab man.

    i`d probabley get head-butted by you people for this but:
    i have never heard of X-com. or Chryssalid/s.
    got no idea about any of this.
    plus...an ortho... who in the world got the time.........
    good luck mates, and have fun.


    We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.
