Alien Queen's Crewcut by NicklausofKrieg Alien Queen's Crewcut by NicklausofKrieg
just a redo of this drawing [link] i wasn't really that satisfied with some of their initial designs and i added in two more

left to right

1. Casual cyberpunk special forces operator
2. Contracted marine with a shady past
3. Gung-ho space marine veteran sergeant
4. Teched out space girl from a decent futuristic setting
5. Muscular, power armored yet expendable penal soldier
6. Germanic space soldier
7. All purpose super soldier
8. Black ops assassin

"All purpose supersoldier xD"

Also, is the 2nd one take some inspiration from Tribes: Ascend?

I'm thinking of replacing the Supersoldier actually, his additon was kinda an afterthought. Either I really give him a huge design overhaul, or I'll replace him with a different archetype. Maybe a space cowboy or an adventuring spaceman like in those old sci-fi pulp magazines.

Not really, if I remember correctly I don't think I was aware of that game at the time. I've never played it either.
The second one is actually based off of the marine from Doom 3.

Ah, I see. Space cowboy would be kinda funny :D Something like Mal from Firefly...

Haha, gotcha. Doomguy was the design they based a lot of their characters off of, so there we go xD

yeah, that's exactly the archetype he's based off of.

but i think when i finally get to redesigning all of them, i'm gonna add in influences from other horror sci-fi games like Dead Space and Systemshock to his look.

The eight sci-fi archetypes.

Personally, I like the 'gang of misfits' concept. It's old, true, bit there is a good chance the audience will find at least one guy they can connect to.
