Hanging in the Cargo Bay by ShaneGDraco Hanging in the Cargo Bay by ShaneGDraco
Fox McCloud chilling out in the cargo bay.

I was getting really frustrated with this picture and I was about to scrap it, but somehow I managed to pull it out from the ashes.  I've never done any Star Fox art before, so this was new and fun.

I have to say, I'm really not a fan of the whole mechanical legs thing, much less that people actually believe it was officially part of the series (it wasn't).
But this is actually really nice. It's really, really, really well painted and I especially like the detail we can see of the outside.

The legs themselves, though clearly attached to his body, also look large enough that he could easily have his real legs inside them too.

Thanks.  Yeah, I have no idea what kind of ship that Fox is hanging out in there, but I assume there's some kind of cargo ship in the Starfox fleet.  I loved doing the outside view.  I'm sure Fox got bored of watching space TV and figured he'd get some fresh air, so he goes down to the cargo hold and opens up the cargo hatch.  The background just came together amazingly.  I loved doing all the lighting from that colorful landscape.

As for the legs, I figure if engineers are designing high-performance prosthetics for use of the most elite fighter pilots in the galaxy, they're probably going to make them as powerful as possible without making them more cumbersome than real legs.  So yes, they'd probably end up being about the size of boots.  Of course, the robotic legs aren't canon, but it's a badass variation of the original lore.

Well, StarFox doesn't technically have a fleet, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had some form of smaller ships aside from fighters, given how big the Great Fox looks. I agree as well, it is nice to see Fox amidst an outdoor environment instead of space. And I notice the Arwing itself is also the Assault model (the shape of the nose, cockpit and wing struts etc.)

Sure cyborgs are ridiculously cool in concept. I just kinda think it's silly that so many people think it was a real thing that was retconned due to being too dark. To that I say, really? The main villain degenerated and mutilated his own body so much that all that was left was his brain in the end, and giving the main characters cyborg enhancements is where they cross the line? Yah... I don't think so.

Google images works wonders, especially considering I've never played a StarFox game in my life.  Something I love, though, StarFox is the only game I know of that really preserved the low-poly look in all its designs.  It's a shame that there hasn't been a StarFox game in FOREVER, or I would have played one.  I definitely love Smash, though.

Well, there is a new one in development right now, so hopefully we won't have too much longer to wait.
