Veera OCT Concept WIP by Riyami Veera OCT Concept WIP by Riyami
WIP Concept for the upcoming OCT :iconriseoct:

An alien girl (I'm thinking of calling her race K'takzyl) by the name of Veera. She is an outlaw looking for redemption, and is trying to free her home world from the rule of a madman.

She mainly uses a type of energy pistol and a pair of kinetic ion blades (the kind that have a handle on them like a nightstick) She is well versed in guerrilla warfare and hand to hand combat. The long semi-prehensile tendril on the back of her head acts as her strongest limb, and she has a thicker neck to support the additional weight, and possibly enables her to hang from the tendril.

She has a Anti-gravity skimmer (To be shown later) that acts as her personal transport. It houses a built in AI that helps Veera and can also remotely access her skimmer via the AI's ability to be held within her Nano-circuit suit. She also has minor cybernetic implants to help with interfacing with technology and her bike / suit.

The bike itself has a few energy cannons on it, as well as about 7-8 adjustable thrusters to give it incredible speed and maneuverability. The bike's armor is light to medium, seeing as it's only a personal craft, however it can save itself from heavy damage with its Preemptive Defense Array: Several (3) panels of hard light holograms that can act as a reactive preliminary defense. They are reactive in the fact that they can predict trajectories and move themselves accordingly to shield the skimmer and the driver.

Veera is able to use the PDA shields away from her skimmer, but is only able to generate 1 shield for personal use. The shields aren't impenetrable, and when they absorb a certain amount of force, they CAN and WILL short out.

Hopefully I can get the Ref sheet and Audition done soon, but this is basically what is going to be there.

:dance: CRITIQUES WELCOME! :dance:

Thanks for looking! Wish me luck with my first OCT attempt! D:

Can I ask you a question? Any advice on drawing aliens in shapes and color wise?
Riyami Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2014
A good thing to do when you design an alien is to think about things that make it look like it does, primarily things like how does it move, what environment does it live in? What does it eat, and make it's anatomy and colors fit those reasons. So if an alien primarily moves around by jumping, it would have thick strong legs versus a swimming one that may have thin finned legs.  If something lives in a primarily forest area, it would probably have lots of earthen greens or browns with light / dark patterns for camouflage, or a light colored underbelly and a dark back color for sea dwelling aliens.

But It doesn't have to match earth based colors, if that particular planet had forests of green and blue trees, then the animals and aliens would probably match those kinds of colors to blend in.

This is a super cool design and a super cool race! Also comics are cool!

I would love to use this character in a sci-fi screen play I'm writing. The character is just so interesting. I would abviously give credit for your work and paid if the screenplay hits the screens.

Unfortunately, I am still uncomfortable with letting other people use my characters/artwork for their own projects. (Most of them are used in my own personal role play and story writing.) I would like to kindly ask that you not use Veera in your project.

But Thank you so much for asking first. I really appreciate it.
