RedSkittlez Posted November 21, 2013 Share Posted November 21, 2013 (edited) Warframe - The Locust Typhus Alright fellow Tenno, I finally got Locust 2.0 (Typhus) up and mostly sorted out. The post now includes information on Morphology, Physiology, and Powers as well as a few other pieces of information. Also keep in mind some of this is still a work in progress, but at least everything looks neat and tidy. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/176524-typhus-parasiteviral-type-update-typhus-physiology-wip-17022014/?p=2060787 Old Concept Hey everybody, if you noticed on my previous thread, I put one of my old work i did quite a while back. So I decided to redesign him with some new sketch-designs. Originally this was a bug type warframe, well he still is but in the redux version, he has become heavily mutated. I was playing with this idea, what if a warframe lost control and became rampant like what happened with the technocite in Dark Sector. Warframe - The Locust I based it more on a knight and used frost as a reference.I was also heavily inspired by Tsutomu Nihei's works.You can easily tell from this piece. WIP:http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2013/345/8/4/working_on_locust_2_0_by_redskittlez_da-d6xk77y.jpg Exoskeleton info: Exoskeletons contain rigid and resistant components that fulfill a set of functional roles including protection, excretion, sensing, support, feeding and acting as a barrier against desiccation in terrestrial organisms. Exoskeletons have a role in defense from pests and predators, support, and in providing an attachment framework for musculature.Exoskeletons contain chitin; the addition of calcium carbonate makes them harder and stronger.In-growths of the arthropod exoskeleton known as antipodes serve as attachment sites for muscles. These structures are composed of chitin, and are approximately 6 times as strong and twice as stiff as vertebrate tendons. Similar to tendons, antipodes can stretch to store elastic energy for jumping, notably in locusts. An exoskeleton is the external skeleton that supports and protects an animal's body, in contrast to the internal skeleton (endoskeleton) of, for example, a human. Some animals, such as the tortoise, have both an endoskeleton and an exoskeleton. One of Locust's Pets This is a work in progress of a creature that Locust uses in one of his attacks that live inside his body. http://farm1.static.flickr.com/116/266458852_23db33a6d2.jpg This is one of his abilities called "Drain": While lunging his hand towards the enemy, Locust unleashes a snaking metallic tendril, Which then seeks the bones of the target either tearing apart or absorbing its essence. This is necessary for Locust needs to replenish his Armour to prevent it from degrading or fracturing. Here's the helmet. I quick edited the helmet to give it slightly less flesh and more armor look.I still kept the mandibles to keep the bug-like features. That was originally part of the frame but the "flesh" shattered it making them into mandibles with tooth-like protrusions. I know what your thinking I got inspired from dead space, but I was actually inspired by the 1980's version John Carpenter's The Thing and the 2011 version of it as well. I wanted to show how far I thought the Technocyte Virus on a warframe, if it went ramped. Since it does what it does normally.
