    It gives a group(?) quote every time, "...and so they left, sound still ringing in deaf ears."

      Huh. That's odd. I thought that was a Multiplayer quote, but I guess it's Sniper, huh? I wonder, does it imply a non-gender, or is the Sniper's drone included?

      ...That just gave me the mental image of a tragic history, the Sniper having had a very close, best friend who was also his/her spotter, who died in the line of duty, and who was implanted into the drone either physically (like a brain transfer) or simply as a specialized AI programmed to perfectly emulate the Sniper's old friend.

      The stories they could all tell...

        For a second there I thought you were referencing Adam Malkovitch and Samus.

        @v Fusion rocked the house. Excellent game.

          I never played MoM; its bad reputation precedes it. However, I did play Fusion, and I will admit that was my favorite of the games and I'm honestly appalled at how badly MoM ruined the interaction between Adam and Samus. It had so much promise. I would be lying if I said that wasn't part of the inspiration for the second thought.

          The other is I actually have some MMX RP characters (predating me actually playing any Metroid at all) who are Reploids who were programmed after real people who died, usually ordered by mourning parties who lost loved ones to accidents or illness. One of those personality/AI chips accidentally got put in the wrong chip shipment and got implanted into a Radar Killer, so the idea of an AI programmed after a human but put into an entirely non-human frame isn't entirely alien to my odd character-building thought processes. c.c

            The Sniper is a male.
            It would be a Snipress if it was a female. (true facts though)

            EDIT: Or at least, so I assume, as hunter is an androgynous term, but they specifically called the female hunter a huntress. With that attention to the title, the Sniper would probably be called Snipress if it was a she.

              I actually registered because I found this forum over Google when looking for fanart. I figure I'd contribute the best thing I could. I used your concept work to help, so thank you for giving us a better perspective of the characters.

              Would I be able to post your artwork on another Minecraft site, so they could see what I based my skins off of?

              If so, what should I credit you as?

                  Sorry about inactivity, I've been hella distracted by Terraria and Starbound.

                    The 'they' refers to the Sniper and the recon bot, I think.

                    Loving the art in here. 40 hours of the game and, basically, this is what I see now.

                          Very cute, though if I must say this (as I've noticed it's a bit of a trend), I'd really rather people opened their own threads for their own art instead of posting their works into mine. It just seems very awkward to have a bunch of other people's stuff in my thread, even if I haven't really felt motivated enough to populate it myself lately...

                                  Different people progress at different rates. Don't compare your work to the work of others, because art doesn't happen by wishful thinking alone. It involves just doing it, making mistakes, learning from them, and drawing more anyway. The momentum will carry you farther than posts like that will.

                                  Those pictures are lazy for me because I have like 16+ years of hard work backing the quality of any of my art. Compare those pictures to other pictures I've drawn here, such as the wallpapers. They definitely took a lot less time; I think I finished all the class sketches in a few hours total, wheras the golem wallpaper took like 8 hours and the magma worm one took maybe 12 or more spread over several days. I'm not saying they're lazy to be demotivating, NOR to brag, I'm simply stating that they're lazy relative to my other work.

                                    Well then again in the end it says he just wants to be left alone so i doubt he'd just go ahead and murderize everyone in the hold

                                        Not reading dates on posts seems to be a trend on forums, especially Terraria's but apparently here as well.

                                        That post was made during the beta when Acrid was first released; the final stage and endings had not been implemented yet. Thus there was even less context for the characters than there is now, and that's saying a lot.

                                          Just in case you still thought that, i read the date.
