AlGore'sleftshoe's Star Fox Art Thread

Recommended Posts

AlGore'sleftshoe

There is little to no discussion at all about vehicle design for the 80s anime-esc/70s live action scifi-esc brightly colored super vehicles the StarFox characters use to take part in battle. since I have no idea how to draw tanks or land vehicles of any kind, I just went for a new Arwing design, because aircraft are very easy to do, at least for me.

I call it the Arwing Mark IV STWU model, developed under the same dev team for previous Arwing models, now currently lead by Slippy Toad, and to be tested and used by combat by StarFox team.

Description: basically I went for the unique look the Arwing had in the first two games on SNES, and later returned in Assault. I feel it is more original, and what I'd consider classic Arwing. The fuselage is structured just like the Assault Arwing, which also looks very similar to the concept art for SNES. cock-pit designed more like the N64 beta model before SF64 was completed, which is also what they used for the multiplayer, and often appears as the teammate NPC's for some reason. as for the back I give it a more X-Wing (StarWars)/Federation fighter (BattleStar Galactica) look, to give a nod to retro 70s scifi films that draw my attention so easily. I wanted to balance a grit'n grime idea with shiny anime and this is how it turns out.

I want it to look functional, moving parts and all. I provided a small rear view image, it has two sets of laser cannons one set positioned right next to the cock pit, and the other set set in the Arwing's trademark balancer blue thingies. instead of laser cannons in the hook of the wing like in SNES, it has....lights, I dunno. yellow stripes painted on each end of the folding wings, and a blue stripe down the middle of the fuselage. I'd also like this model to have a back seat, that's what it is beyind the cock-pit in the X-Wing-like back.

as for the particle effects not shown; I'd like all the shimmering details in the thrusters and break lights to resemble retro 80s anime, heavily stylized effects that I for some reason crave. watch the TIE fighter shortfilm recently put out on youtube to get what I mean.

Sorry for the horrid lighting (What lighting?), but this piece is however subject to change, I might change things out or paint it.

Again, if this should be somewhere else, please let it be moved to its proper location.

I tried to do Fox, Krystal, Wolf, Miyu and Leon, but I could only pull off Fox and Krystal; given that they're the basic anthro character structure that I have the most experience in, I should have also been able to do Wolf but...something wasn't right about the muzzle, as for these I retouched them as best I could. Given I've done like 3 lynx OC's two female one male....Miyu shoulda been easy, again I don't know what happened.

I may try again later with the other characters but this is what I got for now. I think the artstyle shown speaks for itself. I'd like to make their outfits a bit less bland though... but that's a challenge for another day.

I've got a fairly strong instinct for aesthetic and design, so I'll lend my two bits here. On the other hand, I actually don't really know what the Arwing is "supposed" to look like, seeing as I honestly haven't given it much mind. Looks good bro.

I think the basic design of the Arwing is just a derivative combination of the X-Wing's from Star Wars, the Colonial Viper from Stargate, and pretty much any supersonic fighter jet. Thin fuselage, tiny swept wings, some kind of futuristic propulsion system, and lasers. Basically, go to any schmuck on the street and ask him/her/it to draw a space fighter, and they'll inevitably draw something similar to that. Also, the crappy processors in the SNES and the N64 basically forced the design to be very geometric and rigid, since even now, curves are pretty damn tricky to render. It used to be hilariously obvious back in the ye olde days of the N64 and PS1, but even today, they can't quite do it. Why, because polygons are, by their nature, made up of straight edges. It's been a while since 6th grade geometry.

On a related note, I, like the swoopy everything is sleek and curvy '90s aesthetic better. I feel like it's starting to take on an old-school cool feel akin to Mid-Century Modern or Art Deco/Nouveau. I feel like a lot of recent styling trends are just throwbacks to '80s un-ergonomic everything-is-squares aesthetic. It's all fine and good, but I prefer originality any day. Most cellphones (especially iPhones) look pretty similar to how they did almost 10 years ago. Cars of the last 15 or so years are basically just chunky boxes taken under a belt-sander (I blame the Prius. Or the Chrysler 300). The 3DS still basically follows a format started by the GBA SP back in, what, 2003? The problem with throwbacks is that they don't take any risk, and without any risk, you don't make any progress. I'm not saying that designers should start aping the Ford Taurus and Sega Game Gear, but rather that completely 21st century design styles come up.

Please move this if it fits an existing topic.

Once again, photo quality is crap, but I liked the way it turned out: Wolf's back in this redesign I did. Small details and some bits of his appearance are based from an OC of mine....of which the very same character was inspired in appearance from Wolf to begin with, it perplexes me but it worked very well. I went once again with the Manga/Comic style as I normally do, which fits best for StarFox in my opinion, this style being used in games StarFox Assault, StarFox 2, and somewhat in Command.

I ask to see what everyone thinks?

I'm thinking up redesigns for; Fox Mccloud, Krystal, Miyu Lynx, Fey Spaniel, Leon Powalski (maybe), Sabre (DP) and perhaps others, but those are the one's I'm more sure I can do.

I must commend your efforts on the portrayal of the arwing in the OP.  Although the lack of a scanner surely puts a damper on the finer details, one can certainly tell that quite a bit of work did go into keeping it close to the source material while at the same time putting a creative spin on things.  The stark lines and the glass-like appearance of the canopy in particular offer a great contrast to the rest of the ship.

Those that are particularly masterful at drawings of machinery or otherwise inorganic matter usually seem to have more of an issue with drawing living beings, and vice versa from what I've seen.  You seem to have found a decent middleground; your drawings of anthros are quite passable, but might benefit with a little more practice on general anatomy and proportions.  Wolf's right arm's elbow appears to be relatively subdued in the photo above, for example.

Keep at it, and you'll be on your way!

YEAH......ughh....I know I need a scanner, but I don't exactly have that kind of money right now. I don't mean to brag, I hate egos, but the camera quality from my 5 year old cell phone kinda warps the image a little; the elbow honestly doesn't bother me NEARLY as much as Wolf's muzzle, looks like he got punched in the face. however, his elbow was definitely a challenge, the first time I've attempted an arm bent that way at that angle. 

I don't mean to spray off an ego, I hate egos, but this is not my best work, I have much better stuff, but that's original artwork I can't leak, because I want it published commercially. But I have a few things I can show that aren't related to that project, and not related to StarFox, where would I post non-StarFox-work, if I were to post it here?

If you choose to continue to pursue artwork (which you definitely should based upon these pieces), somewhere down the line when you have a little bit more financial freedom the purchase of a scanner would be a wise investment.  Considering that the camera in question is five years old, however, it's not too shabby, and I can see how it could warp/alter the image subtly from its original form based upon that information.  I do see your point on the muzzle now that I've taken a little bit of a closer look, but it's not bad all things considered.  For being a first attempt at angling an arm that way, you did get the general roundness of it right as far as I can tell.

You can post non-Star Fox works in this board.  Just keep it within a single thread.

Investing in a scanner is a really good idea, then one can truly appreciate the detail in your arts. Very nice work so far, keep it up. If you ever want some of your things digitally lined or coloured, in order to get a better resolution, I would be willing to work with you on that.

I am caught between doing a new piece of redesign fanart for Miyu Lynx; because NOBODY ever draws her, ever. *Wipes away a tear*, but I also want to do a piece that parodies Top Gun with Fox and Falco (should I ever figure out how to draw Falco in my style). I'd like to see what you guys think.

DISCLAIMER: It might be a couple weeks before I have the time to get more StarFox artwork out, I'm backed up with original artwork that I've procastinated away, and things my tweedledum friends want me to draw, so.....sorry in advance if I put it up long after you've forgotten about this post.

Fox/Falco Top Gun parody sketch or a Miyu redesign? I'd appreciate feedback on what you think I should do first

Liking your redesign. I think the general idea of what an Arwing is supposed to look like is just having that rough origami like look to it, blue on its... err shoulders and be primarily white and some blue. Of course they only have room for one pilot. I thought SF Zero was going to introduce a two seater Arwing because of the wiipad aiming, like a WWII plane. More Star Wars-y in that respect.

 

Personally I'd like a Miyu sketch. Still a fan of the SF2 gals

      Fox and Krystal had awakened from their nightmare to realize that Krystal was never forced off the team. Fox learned that he has reached his limit and could no longer fight, for he no choice but to retire and spend his remaining days living a quiet life with Krystal.
      What really happened is that they disappeared from Lylat and the rest of the team had disbanded, because Star Fox was missing their leader. Thus, Falco had married Katt as Slippy did Amanda.
      There was Falco’s son, Anthony and his daughter, Alexis, Slippy’s son, Skippy and Peppy’s granddaughter, Piper, who were told bedtime stories of Fox’s adventures before he and Krystal had vanished from Lylat.
      The Star Fox families searched everywhere for Fox and Krystal… there was no sign of them, even ROB 64 knew not the location of the two missing members.
      Panther gave up on Krystal and decided to marry Miyu Lynx, one the newest members that were absent before the events of Star Fox 64 which appeared in the unreleased until 2017 game Star Fox 2.
      Meanwhile on Earth, their son, Marcus, grows into a fine young pup as did their daughter, Sabrina, and the Fox family enjoys a happy life together in Shibuya. It is 2022, Marcus is now eight years old and Sabrina is now 5 years old.
       
      They run into five new friends. Sora and Riku from KINGDOM HEARTS and Michiru, Shirou and Nazuna from BNA: Brand New Animal. Both franchises will cross paths in…

      YOUNG XEHANORT: Not so fast, Fox.
      FOX: Who are you?
      *Young Xehanort reverses time and tells Krystal to leave without Fox*
       
      Young Xehanort had changed the ending “Fox and Krystal” to “Star Wolf Returns”…
       
      Star Wolf rises! Across Lylat, people talk of Wolf O'Donnell and his courageous crew. But they are less kind to Krystal, feeling that she was wrong to abandon Star Fox. But she ignores the talk and proceeds with her new life as a member of Star Wolf.

      Eventually, the slings and arrows of the populace are too much to bear. They begin to hiss as she walks by, and name her traitor to her face. She is alone... and hated. She pulls away from Star Wolf and tries to find meaning in this new, cruel world.

      Haunted by her past, Krystal abandons her life and flees to a distant galaxy. Changing her name to Kursed, she survives by collecting bounties on the worst scum in the galaxy. Years later, she runs into Fox during a job on planet Kew... He does not recognize her.
      Kursed saw that Fox was miserable and tried to apologize, but Fox was tortured by his past and he refused to remember. Then, Young Xehanort had offered him an opportunity to remove the pain. Kursed refused to allow Fox to accept his offer, but he did.

      Thus, his heart became corrupted with darkness as he became an evil emperor by the name Dark Fox. Dark Fox has brought doom to Lylat and Star Fox and Star Wolf to their demise.
      He ruled all of Lylat and anyone who stood in his way had met their end. Kursed began to cry, realizing that she had made an awful mistake joining Star Wolf. The populace was enslaved and no one dared to fight back against Dark Fox’s evil empire.
      Kursed found ROB 64, informing her that Dark Fox is on planet Venom, planning to resurrect Andross and destroy Corneria. She refused to help because she was concerned that she too might meet her end and never live to see Fox again.

      Suddenly, fate has come as Mickey Mouse emerges from a corridor of light. Kursed was told that that only true love can expel the darkness from Fox and return him to his form of light.
      The darkness cannot be destroyed by an Arwing, her Cloud Runner or her staff, so she was given the special Keyblade of darkness to fight back against Dark Fox’s army. She changed her name back to Krystal as she heads for Venom to put an end to this horrible nightmare for good.

      ) /\/ _ (o)( The Shining Achievement of All FoxKind
      \ \_) (o) /
      \/_/
      A desolate planet of pollution and waste. Venom's Voleech City was ugly as rotting paste. As I say all of this, Fox had to make haste. He was scurrying behind buildings and blasting at bots, bursting their circuits as they screamed out 'bleeps' and 'blots'. Made of tech, they were, they had no blood clots. Fox's boots continued to make more trit-trots, as he fox-trotted his way into the Death Weapon Factory. Robot armies followed him inside, could it be that Fox had nowhere to hide?
      "I need to destroy these weapons so that Andross won't use them against Corneria" Fox thought to himself. He isolated each in a gravitational field, then set a timer on each one, eventually they'd come out well done. Sooner or later, they bursted into flames, sending scrap metal everywhere, killing the robot armies who had no names. Then Fox got an incoming message from Falco, not Slippy. Man oh man, is that bird ever lippy.
      "Andross is here, he's bringing death and fear. Get your ass to Corneria, hurry right now! We can't make cheese, they've slaughtered every last cow! We've even got less freedom here than on Venom, I'm just thanking God that my jacket is Denim" said Falco. Fox jumped in his ship as soon as he could, then set off for Corneria, to restore peace and brotherhood. When he arrived on his homeworld he was not very pleased. The cities were in shambles, even Admiral Z's house of cheese. Cheese had been banned under Emperor Andross's new law. No one could have cheese throughout the land, not cubed nor sliced, not even one strand. Children were crying and wailing in pain, where was Fox when they needed him? No cheese is quite lame! The giant block of cheese atop Admiral Z's had melted down, far down to the ground, trapping Cornerians...wait isn't the earth round?
      "Cheese can't possibly be that frickin' sticky. Something's rotten in Wisconsin, and this ain't no job for Slippy" thought Fox. Fox got an incoming message from Wolf, who was flying overhead. He didn't like Fox, he wanted Fox to be dead.
      "Hey Fox it's the Wolfster, your people are worthless eaters. We added adhesive properties to the cheese, so now they're all stuck. You'll never defeat Andross cuz face it Fox, you suck. Cheese is for losers so kiss your planet goodbye. All you animals must bow before Andross and die" said Wolf. Sick of all the distress and war, Fox couldn't take it, no not anymore. Fox dropped his cell phone, and began losing his mind. He couldn't take what was happening, even so, saving planets was his 9 to 5 grind. But when all seemed lost, Peppy flew by, dispatching himself with a parachute to the ground, sniffing out trouble better than a foxhound. He got out a long stick of measuring tape, and began charting, graphing, and plotting the melted cheese landscape. Finally he knew just what the Star Fox team should do.
      "Ah, dang, I'm gettin' carless. Fox, Gimme a spare Lylation Nova Bomb" ordered Peppy. Fox pulled a Nova Bomb out of his pocket and placed it in Peppy's hands.
      "Ah, that be the one. Now watch and learn Fox mah boy" said Peppy. Peppy began strapping on giant mecha-gloves to prevent his hands from getting stuck, then started lifting up the cheese straight off the earth. That took strength, power, and mirth? He rolled up the cheese against the nova bomb, then hastened to a cannon, firing it at Andross's ships one by one. If they wouldn't let Cornerians have cheese then let them have what they took. In the form of planetary defense prepared by a master cook.
      "DO A CHEESE ROLL!" ordered Peppy.
      "Man, where'd you learn to do that?" asked Fox in amazement.
      "I learned it at the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake. It's an event near Gloucester, England, where they roll cheese down hills. Now if you don't mind, it's time to defeat the emperor's evil shills!" said Peppy, rolling up the nova bomb in all of the melted sticky cheese from the demolition of Admiral Z's restaurant. Fox began rolling up a nova bomb in cheese, and freed all the citizens who had been stuck. Then Fox and Peppy loaded up the cannons, taking out each one of Andross's minions. Eventually appeared Andross himself, pissed off as hell, like a wargod-elf. Fox jumped into his Arwing, and prepared to take him down. He wasn't gonna lose his beloved planet to that Planet of the Apes reject CLOWN!
      "You will die, just like your father" declared Andross.
      "Not over my dead body!" said Fox.
      "You do realize the irony and foolishness of your response, do you not, Fox?" thundered Andross.
      "I realize that you're going down!" said Fox.
      "If I'm going down, then I'm taking you with me" said Andross.
      "NEVER!" yelled Fox.
      "It is foolish to come against me. You know that I control the galaxy!" said Andross.
      "The universe is like waaaay bigger than that" replied Fox. "TASTE CHEESE YOU FREAAAAK!" yelled Fox, firing a cheese laced nova bomb into Andross's mouth. Andross's ship exploded and Andross parachuted himself to the ground, along with his robot buddy and number one confidante and fan...Fantron.
      "I have a splitting headache," said Andross. "Why must I always lose?" he wailed, pounding the earth with his fist.
      "Master, perhaps next time you should attack your own planet, Venom. Then get everyone to think Fox was responsible. Maybe then your people would finally support you and your unquenchable thirst for war" said Fantron.
      "Not a bad idea" said Andross in his evil robotic-like Darth Vader-esque voice. But then Fox cornered Andross, plasma blaster in tow. He looked quite proud, he had put on a good show!
      "Correction Emperor. That's a very BAD idea!" said Fox. "You're going to Corneria War Crimes Prison for at least thirteen years, you won't get any cheese, just cheap Norwegian beers!" Andross looked confused.
      Later that day...
      Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy, watching cheese burn in a restaurant founded by a hippie!
      "Yay, Fox!" clapped Falco, Peppy, and Slippy, as a giant block of cheese slowly melted under a candle's flames. They all clinged wine glasses together.
      "LONG LIVE TEAM STAR FOX. AND LONG LIVE THE GLORIOUS GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING...CHEESE!" they all yelled. The three men cheered and shared a group hug, then devoured more cheese and dived into an oversized apple cider jug. Outside the room was the beautiful Krystal, aspy. She had seen enough, Fox just wasn't her guy.
      Note: I took the words "THE END" and made them be out of cheese. Then I rolled them up in an awesomely tasty text sandwich.

      Krystal Becomes Infatuated with Cheese
      So we all know the story, it had something to do with cheese, and how with cheese Fox was easy to please.
      But there's more to it than that as this new tale shall prove, for this is when Krystal caught on to the groove.
      It started out a day like any other, but Krystal had moved on! Fox was away from her life, yes indeed gone. Mocked for having been part of Star Wolf briefly,
      she took up residence on the delightful Planet Kew. But her true feelings were just like her fur...very blue. So she joined a coven of fox girls just like her, hoping that for her sadness this would be the cure. But it wasn't you see, Fox wasn't gone, deep down in Krystal's heart Fox still lingered on.
      "I'm delighted to attend this meeting as you can see. I'm not the least bit lonely, I feel quite free!" said Krystal.
      "Good," said Fay sitting to the right of Krystal. "Let's do a conciousness raising session, with trees made of nettle!"
      "Sorry to interrupt but she takes cheese to each session. She has some Chedder and Feta right now, I have the most distinct impression" said Fara.
      "No, no, no, I'm not up for that. Why is everyone staring at me and Katt?" asked Krystal.
      "It's the cheeses behind your backs," said Fay with a smirk. "Why not share some with us? Might be a nice perk!"
      "No, I won't" said Katt. "I like cheese too much, cheese I must never lack. My only true boyfriend is Monteray Jack"
      Krystal sighed. She had never been a fan of cheese. But see, Fox was, and his soul was something Krystal just had to appease.
      "This cheese reminds me of someone I loved. Someone I cared for, kissed, and hugged" said Krystal, embarresed. She ran away.
      "She takes that cheese to every meeting here!" said Fay. "AND SHE NEVER EATS IT!" she added.
      KRYSTAL JUMPED IN HER ARWING WITH THE CHEESE IN TOW, SHE WASN'T FEELiNG TOO GOOD, THIS WE ALL KNOW
      "So they don't like me clutching on to cheese, do they? I wasn't about to convince them it was my baby, I need Fox Mccloud back, he's the mashed potato to my gravy" said Krystal. Feeling sad, with dejected eyes, she flew herself into a black hole.
      She got warped to Planet Earth, London UK to be exact. Krystal sounded like she came from there, we'll never know why. Perhaps it's past life stuff, but for now, gotta fly!
      Her arwing crashed and she jumped out with a parachute. She brushed dust off her legs and frantically searched the wreckage for cheese.
      She pulled out some cheese and got down on her knees.
      "Oh, cheese, you'll always be special to me. My one reminder of whom I love, Fox if you're still out there, please show me a dove" said Krystal.
      A dove flew down and stole her cheese. Krystal ran towards a policewoman.
      "You look rather blue," said the policewoman.
      "I am blue, my name is Krystal, yes it's true. A dove flew off into the sky with my cheese, he did not even ask first,
      nor did he say please!" replied Krystal.
      "I can't help you this instant, I think it's been too long a shift. I've never seen a fox person, if you get my drift. But cheese? Yes, it's delicious when spread over fresh mana. Krystal, has anyone told you that you sound just like Princess Diana?" said the cop.
      Krystal broke down in tears and yelled out to the Krazoa to take her away to Fox. So they gave her a test. A taste test of cheeses, conducted by them.
      The Krazoas loved cheese. With cheese they were easy to appease. So they brought her to where Fox was...sitting in a London pub, eating cheese and drinking wine, while helping Falco flick away a bug.
      "Fox," said Krystal tapping Fox on the back. "You know I'm the only one that can understand you, I just have a knack!"
      "Do I know you, blue lady? Oh, Krystal, that's right. It's called a rivalry okay? Let me get back to my rivalries!" said Fox, who then proceeded to chat with Falco.
      "That bird can buzz off, he's bloomin' pissing me off. Now Fox, look at me! We were a team, like Mcnee and Dianna Rigg. Would you forgive me if I handed you a fig?"
      "Figs are old school and I'm just as depressed as you. My nose is stuck to this table like glue!" said Fox.
      "Fox, I have cheese!" said Krystal. Fox looked at the cheese.
      "Get that away!" said Fox violently slapping away the food. Krystal's dress came undone, leaving her in a bikini. All the onlookers looked,
      Krystal, she was damn pretty!
      "Terrific, everyone's staring at me and my rack. Fox won't you please come back?" said Krystal.
      "Can't right now!" said Fox.
      "Oh, please, Fox, let's go right now! Repair to our Arwings, with that food made from a cow" said Krystal.
      "Food made from a cow?" asked Fox, with a twinkle in his eye. "You mean cheese right?"
      "Yes, Fox. Cheese!" said Krystal.
      "To heck with cheese!" said Fox. Krystal started to cry.
      "No, no, hear me out, you must know the reason why!" said Fox. Brushing away a tear, Krystal listened.
      "Krystal I realize I love you more than anything in the universe. You're the greatest gift ever, this I now know, let's rise from the pits where we sunk so low" said Fox. Fox looked into Krystal's eyes, so sweet and sublime. He saw the cheese in her hands, and realized she was one hundred percent divine.
      "I can't believe how foolish I was!" said Fox with a teary eyed grin. He hugged Krystal, and they both shared a kiss. The crowd was confused,
      but to Fox and Krystal, this was bliss.
      "Falco, just admit my boyfriend's a better pilot than you. Go home to your cat, she'll repair your beak like new!" said Krystal.
      Back in the Arwing:
      "You were actually going to change your name to Kursed?" asked Fox.
      "Yes, yes, yes I was. But now we have each other and a cargo hold full of cheese. And our beautiful sets of furs, free of all fleas!" replied Krystal.
      THE END
