Surrounded! by JECBrush Surrounded! by JECBrush
A request by :iconmasterwarhero:~MASTERWARHERO of Krystal wearing her alternative costume in a perilous mission.

Sorry for taking way too long with this one. This took a few tries to make it look good. :doh:

---

Gen. Peppy sent Star Fox to investigate the disappearance of a mining crew in the glowing depths of Macbeth. Tight choke points prevented the use of Arwings and Landmasters, so the team set out on foot to explore the expansive caverns. To make matters difficult, communication to the Great Fox was spotty and impossible at great depths.

The camps and outposts strewn through the network yielded ominous clues to the mining team's disappearance. As Fox was about to piece things together, large insect beings pounced from the shadows when the team least expected it. Forced out into the open, Fox and the team defended themselves against teeth, claw and spikes of their attackers. The insects caused an avalanche of boulders to fall forcing the team to scatter and find cover.

Krystal finds herself separated from the rest of the gang. She fights for her life only armed with her staff and a few supplies against the swarm. She can only hope she can reunite with her team before Star Fox becomes overwhelmed.

First of all, the set up is really nice and fit well with the starfox universe. The reflection on the water is flawless and the splashing of the water is fluid and really nice. the monsters in the background remind me of the aporoid from starfox assault but with a more insect twist which is nice.

Krystal look amazing on this , the detail on her clothes look great from the dirt of her boots ,the flame reflection on her face, her ripped pants to the dirt on her face .

The only thing I find a little weird is her pose but except for that , it's an amazing fan art.

Keep up the excellent work JECBrush !

This picture has exceptional detail. The shadowing on Krystal as well as the bug-things (Aparoids?) helps added depth. Also, having a light source from the background and the staff is done effectively; it appears that the fire being shot from the staff is real.

Making the background more smudge-y really aids in the emphasis of the foreground. Also, the reflections in the water have the perfect combination of light, shadow, and ripple effect from Krystal's feet.

I think that despite the uniform not being canon, this new uniform is better. It serves an actual tactical purpose with the side packs, rather than the Assault uniform only to make her look pretty... Good job!

If I had to bring up a movie comparison, Krystal kinda reminds me of the Warrior Woman from Mad Max 2. Heck, the actress Virginia Hey could be the voice of Krystal, if there was ever a movie made.

Decidedly one of your best detailed pics, Julius. :D

Hm... A question though, the creatures in this pic look very similar to the El Dagan from a MMO called Phantasy Star Online 2... Did you happen to take any inspiration from that, or it's just an awesome coincidence? :3

Could be a coincidence. The insectomorphs come in all shapes and sizes.

Very awesomely done. Great new touch on Krystal's new outfit. Certainly fits an angent on a mission a lot since it is more capable of attaching a sidepack and battle equipement or supplies. 

The colors are very wisely chosen, and very nicely blent with each other creating a semi realistic environment that adds to it. Incredible effects and highlights an the surfaces needed. And perspective and atmosphere preserves very well the background story behind this picture. 

This a very nice painting, and some beautiful tribute to the Star Fox series. Well done.
