I started on these sketches for Iseijin's profile and I want to ensure I have a good honk of alien experts' (that you all) critiques before I go on the final version - which will be used, and linked, for future forum RPGs.
I'm mostly concerned about the weight and with certain movement options. For one, I have at her close to 300lbs (about 240lbs at least), though I think it may be a bit too heavy for her body type; she's supposed to be a runner, sort of feline-esque feel, but at the same time I'm not certain how chitin is weighed or what sort of mass it has!
The human/yautja height comparison is with a 5'8'' human as the base model. The problem here is that she may be a bit too big for humans, but if I made her any smaller she may end up too small for yautja - trying to find a happy medium here.
My other peeve may be the location of the head on the neck, though xenomorphs don't see in the traditional sense I lowered her neck/head to give a more aerodynamic feel, at the same time it may feel... forced, as though the head weighs too much. How does it look to you at first glance? Normal, or annormally located? I want her to pull her head back when she rears (she is able to walk/run on two legs though not for long - too much frontal body weight) and still keep her head up because it's how she 'sniffs' the air for pheromones.
It's not drawn here, but I've also thought about omitting the tubes to give her a sleeker appearance. Yay or nay?
