Clicking on the Shamen works.
Love both of them! Is the Shamen Female?
The pounder - HOLY SH*T!
That is so awesome, dude, love the design, man I'd love to face those things in Gears three. I can actually imagine the fight, sweet! Keep these coming, they are so bad ass!
The Shaman is male...I guess
Thanks again for all of the compliments...
No love for the Raptor .....
oh well back to the drawing board...
I was thinking of the Kantus and how they are tall and lanky...
I guess it could be female, are there female Locusts or is there just the Queen?
Might be creepy, it could have this screeching voice, like when you run nails down a chalkboard....
I didn't know that
god I need to get another copy of the first Gears...
The other thing I was thinking if there is a Queen shouldn't there be
Or if you think of insects an alpha male...
The one that started it all?
the Queen looks like a human hybrid, but the Locust all look very much the same.
True, true, but there are so many un-answered questions, that Epic need to make it a long campaign, with a whole bunch of new enemies. (Hire you perhaps?)
The raptor was great, but the Pounder took all the attention.

These drawings are amazing and I would love to see some of these enemies in GOW3 except for the Shaman and the new human characters. They just wouldn't fit. Heres why, a floating enemy? Cliff Blesenski said in a dev diary that GOW isn't like Halo, no laser guns, its much more beefier and a floating enemy does not just fit GOW. Look at enemies of GOW and try to work off of them like you did with the Pounder and Raptor which I could see being in a GOW game.
Well he wouldn't float all of the time of course, maybe when he is reviving other locusts his feet would briefly leave the ground... there are already floating locusts in the game, when a Kantus revives them, some of the time they " levitate" and move to another location...Even though it might just be a glitch I thought it looked cool...
But like I said these are just ideas for the characters,trying to give it a little backstory....Which can be changed easily....
The deisgns are a seperate thing.
I understand what you're saying though

Wow... more awesome stuff... I'm not used to this pace, it's like overload, making me all dizzy and stuff!
Say, you gonna ink or color any of these?
Inking and colouring too? Awesome, looking forward to the new ones as well.
Loving the new locust varients you have here, the pounder would get me panicking if it were in gears three!!
Roast em and Toast em! - The Torquebow terror
Preferred Locust - Theron Guard! Preferred Gear - The Hoff!
This little guy is a variation of the Ticker and the Wretch combined, but instead of a normal explosion when it comes near you, it explodes and sends out hundreds of metal shards, shredding anyone who is close to it...
It has a much larger blast radius than the Ticker making it a much larger threat...
trying to decide what the shards should look like, I listed three possibilities
let me know which one you prefer ( if any)

Also, I like shard number 1. Simple and looks like a shard. Number 2 looks like a sword and number 3 looks like a dagger.

Amazing work man, I'm going to go with number one. It seems a lot more original in the concept that you were trying to come off with. More of a shard/organic looking then the other two, which seem more like swords or daggers, instead of shards.
It would stand just a little taller than the wretch, it can stand up a bit on those legs and swipe you with it's hands too so it's just not a moving grenade.
It would be just as fast as the Tickers...
So far shard number one is in the lead....

"Why so serious?"
Awesome drawing...as always.
Wow. All of your artwork are awesomee!!
How can you draw such detailed pieces so fast! You have such great imagination, too...
Missing my Gearheads.
You have any more coming up man? Looking forward to some more.
It looks good. Much better than many other ones, that don't take the whole "combat ready" thing into consideration.
Just one thing: It could just be me, but her pose seems to be somewhat "impossible". I feel like her center gravity is not where it's supposed to be. You know what I mean?
I see what you mean about the pose
she is going to be leaning on a wall, sort of crouched behind cover
just haven't put the wall in yet......
Hmm... so first you're saying I ain't good enough to run Fan Fic Central? And now you wanna go disrespecting my girls Hannah, Kiyoko, Kelly, Clarity and Natalia?
That just ain't cool brah, think we might have to throw down at some point...
...JK!!! Hah ha! Had ya going there for a minute though didn't I Raze? Lol, bet I did.
Anyways, nice work as usual Mallock. I see what you mean about the wall. Interesting take on the COG armor too. Only thing I'd say is, maybe stick more closely to Chris Perna's design. Not to slavishly follow it, but make sure it's representative of Chris's work. If that makes any sense?
I never seen those pictures, and sure wasn't talking about THEM...wait a second...HEY!!!
Nice work man, she looks great! Keep them coming, plus can't wait for the inking to start!
Ha Razah, mess with the Boss and you get...... the Boss?
Boss' girls are feindish..... except for Hannah, she was the scared medic.... kidding.

Can someone link those for me...that's the first time I'm hearing 'bout that.
^ Really? Well, I like them all, but think Kiyoko is still the best.
Hannah Rhodes - COG Medic
Kiyoko Yumi - Fox Squad Sniper
Kelly James - Girl Of War
Clarity Blaze - Echo One Scout
Lt. Natalia Blain - Coalition Military Intelligence Officer
And yeah Mallock, I think I've seen your inked and colored work, and it looked mighty impressive.
Which of these sketches were you thinking of inking and coloring? Looking forward to seeing it.
Thanks for the compliment.
I posted Clarity on my Deviant account, but maybe someone just stole it and pretended it was theirs? Lol, it happens.
And Mallock, cool finished sketch. I think the head looks a little small or something, but that could be just me. Not sure about the Robocop looking thing on her jaw either, but again... probably just me.
Still awesome though.
Ohhhh...she's leaning against the wall! That's why!
Anyways, it looks great (raises two thumbs up, with a creepy smile).
OK one more thing and then I stop, I swear...."Is it me or" is she holding too many guns. It feels a little unbalanced. I understand if she had two Snubs, like Tomb Raider or something like that, it would be better, by me. But other than that it's awesome!
Boss, that I did. Everyone else is a Blondie, while the most bad ass of them all is dark haired.
Mallock, nice, that looks awesome, love the detail.
