And finally for the moment, my chart that was supposed to have all the Agent Archetype MBs… before I decided to redo attitudes (the columns) in a much better simpler quadrant grid rendering this chart outdated.
I’ll be making my next chart digitally, because redrawing things when you can’t just move them (like I did once or twice here) is a pain.
This post was supposed to post some time ago but I never got the Arbiter’s design done so it just sat around instead until I had the good sense to take the Arbiter out and put it in a new post.
The Orienter (Synthesis + Desolation) is a kind of living compass, with eight floating arms that each “point” to one of the Directed attributes. It has a great directional sense, and will gladly give directions to whoever wants them, drawing from what seems to be an uncannily great knowledge of the layout of the universe.
Today I got the bright idea of instead of uploading the full page and editing it for the archive.org page afterwards, editing it into two images first. You’d think I would have figured this amazing trick out some time ago but I guess not. :p
Anyway, very initial doodles of Vergozsya the Portensilisk (honestly I wouldn’t even call them concepts because it was one of those things where you kinda know what you want to draw but then you scramble around with the pencil figuring out how to translate it into a visual shape and mostly fail).
Also, a pretty complete concept for the Orienter. I don’t feel like the head is quite… 3-dimensionally sound as drawn (I’d probably have to figure out a bunch of stuff about the X axis when modelling it in Blender) but the arms are pretty well the way they’re supposed to look. I didn’t draw it here but the head floats on top, then the double armillary sphere (which I didn’t design properly yet) floats below it, and finally the arms float around the sphere in a circle, sometimes below them and sometimes level with them. The head was supposed to look vaguely iguana-like, by the way.
I love how “double armillary sphere” just sounds like such complete bullshit and then when you look at it it pretty much is but it’s also kinda cool in a weird and crazy way
I think this is the closest thing to a photorealistic texture I’ve ever made so far and I just made it by accident. :p
Almost looks like I’m trying to make a golden snitch. :p
Welp, now I’ve officially made an MB way too complicated for me to draw without modelling part of it in Blender first. XD
Dammit why did I have to get the great idea to put a double armillary sphere in the middle of it
Add to the list of “objects that look like they’re practically already MBs”: armillary spheres.
