Grievous Insect by 13foxywolf666 Grievous Insect by 13foxywolf666
After :iconladyofthegeneral: showed me a few parts of the animated Clone Wars show (not the CG one) I felt inspired to take a stab at General Grievous. His design reminds me of an anthropomorphic insect, so that's where this came from. It really didn't need that much tweaking. I just added some more organic elements to the exoskeleton inspired by mantises and grasshoppers (the thighs). And of course wings. Every badass bug needs wings!

Star Wars (c) George Lucas

Oh hell yeah! I'm not the only one who felt reminded of an anthro insect! Probably partially the reason I fell in love with him.

Thank you. :) He has one of the neatest character designs in the series in my opinion.

Exactly. Though, I had a teacher once who was a die-hard star wars fan. He left for Chicago a few years back, and the minute I found out Disney had bought Star Wars, I got a message on facebook from a fellow student of his class;

"Disney just bought the rights to Star Wars. Can you hear Holzer screaming in pain yet?"

I lawled and had a good time.

And probably very true.

Ah, Mr. Holzer. He was the fencing coach, and whenever you approached him he'd give you this look that made it seem like you had just shot his child. He always said "What," as if answering your question was the worst thing on earth; sounded a little like a snotty child when he said that. And he didn't like to talk to people.

He sounds like me when I have a bad hangover (which is thankfully rare, but people do not want to be near me when it happens). :XD: He also sounds a little like my eighth grade history teacher, except he did that kind of thing with a sense of humour.

Now this one is way more badass than the original 2D one and even more than the later ones who all have coughing fits. Seriously, he's mostly machine, you can probably make him some new lungs to replace those beat up ones that Mace Windu crushed... This one though... the power of flight would make him that much worse to try and deal with.

Thank you. That was my philosophy behind the wings. With the wings he could wield six sabers at once, and that would really complicate matters! ;)

I completely forgot about him using lightsabers with his feet when I mentioned that: I was just thinking of him swooping in out of no where!

Huh. I've ocassionally thought of General Grievous as slightly insect-like, but I can't say that I ever imagined him being quite like this. This is awesome. :D

I like it. (Also, that version of Grevious was awesome. I mean, he had everything. A cool voice, only spoke when he needed to and spoke like a gentleman, had an honor code, could fight on his own and pwn everyone, even Jedi, and didn't run at the first sign of danger.) I hate what they've done to him.

I love how you nailed the pose and everything mechanical about him spot-on. :3 It's a change of pace for you, from what I've seen. So accurate and not a stray thing otherwise. I think the insect figure about him works super well. :hug:
